Excuse us, please, if we get a bit weepy. You see, today marks the 30th anniversary of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bob Marley[/lastfm]’s death–you know the Jamaican artist who left behind a musical legacy made up of marijuana celebrating lyricism under heartbeat dubby reggae rhythms.  He’s influenced thousands, if not millions, and many will be paying tribute to the reggae legend today. But, we want to know how you will commemorate his legacy?

Will you #Puff Puff Pass after the jump? Drop more tears by listening to his final live performance Live Forever? Re-watch Marely?  Here’s how you can celebrate the reggae singer/songwriter’s legacy.

5. Listen to Live Forever on repeat! It’s an album which documents that final performance in 1980 and features some of the reggae legend’s best known hits: “Redemption Song,” “Could You Be Loved” and “Jammin'” among others. More information on the album here. 4.

Get “2 Joints”!  No, we aren’t suggesting you physically get two joints, but the actual video on YouTube for swaying back and forth, duh.  Need other tracks about getting intimate with Mary Jane. Don’t fret, get some here.
