SKIP MARLEY RELEASES NEW DOCUMENTARY "LET'S TAKE IT HIGHER"

Let's Take it Higher is a 25-minute documentary that portrays Skip Marley at home during the pandemic living life just like the rest of us -- washing his hands, eating healthy, exercising, spending time with family and his pet dogs, and making music. The first-time Grammy nominee is up for two awards this Sunday -- one for Best Reggae Album (for his debut project Higher Place) and another for Best R&B Song (for "Slow Down," his chart-topping duet with H.E.R.). 


Produced by Boomshots, the official reggae and dancehall platform of Complex Media Networks, and premiering on VIBE.com today, the film includes family movies from Skip's childhood, and candid interviews with many of his collaborators on the project -- H.E.R., Damian "Jr Gong" Marley, Rick Ross, and D. Smoke -- as well as his mother Cedella Marley, and very special appearances by Skip's aunt Marcia Griffiths -- who toured the world with Bob Marley as a member of his backing trio the I Three with Skip's grandmother, the legendary Rita Marley. There's also an interview with the members of the iconic reggae band Inner Circle, who recorded with and performed with Bob Marley in the 1970s, and who say that Skip has "nuff of Bob's vibes."

"Skip reflects on the honor of being nominated for the prestigious awards and of carrying on a mighty legacy in his own unique style," says acclaimed journalist Rob Kenner . 

The first day of production on the doc was January 6, the same day a violent mob stormed the U.S. Capitol Building. Skip's performance of the song "Higher Place" took on added resonance and power in light of the horrific events of that day. He is very much carrying on his grandfather's legacy, and doing so with his own unique musical style and spirit.
