STUFF OF LEGEND: Marley's Kaya gets a 35th anniversary upgrade + Bolt's foundation and Samsung to train students in photographic workshops

SATISFY YOUR SOUL: Remaining one of Bob Marley’s most powerful and socio-political albums, brimming with raw passion and the essence of what it means to be irie, Kaya turns 35 this year. To mark this landmark point in the legacy of the reggae icon, Universal Music is expanding upon the original album by offering a special 2-disc deluxe version that contains the entire album in full, b-side singles, and a full and rare live recording captured at Rotterdam, Netherlands, on July 7, 1978. The packaging will also come with a 23-page booklet that contains never-before-published photos, rare archival press items, exclusive statements from those closest to the creation of the album, and more. A 180-gram heavy-duty vinyl version will also be released on April 30. Pre-order your copy HERE.  


PICTURE THIS: On the heels of the unveiling of a new multi-million-dollar playing court in his hometown of Sherwood Content (the result of a collaboration with the Digicel Jamaica Foundation), Usain Bolt's foundation is now partnering with the sprint superstar's newest sponsor, Samsung Camera, to host a three-day photographic workshop (dubbed the NX Junior Photographer Project) for 25 students, ages 13-17, throughout the island. Scheduled for May 9-11, the workshops will take place in various locations in Kingston, and is aimed at giving aspiring photographers the opportunity to meet and interact with seasoned professionals.
