Two of reggae legend Bob Marley's sons headline the Catch A Fire Tour 2015 lineup coming to the Boulevard Pool at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Sept. 24.

Stephen "Ragga" Marley was just added to bill along with Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, Morgan Heritage and Tarrus Riley. Special guests Jo Mersa, Black Am I, Skip Marley and Jemere Morgan are also to join the fray.

Stephen "Ragga" Marley, the second son of singer Bob Marley, started his music career early, appearing on his first record at the age of 6.

By 1996, he had taken an interest in production and started working on two of his brothers' albums. He became the executive producer of "Chant Down Babylon," a remix album featuring various hip-hop and reggae artists covering his father's songs, in 1999.

His brother Damian Marley's album "Halfway Tree" won the 2001 Grammy Award for best reggae album.

Stephen Marley released his debut album "Mind Control" in 2007, as well as an acoustic version of the album the following year. His second album, "Revelation Part 1: The Root of Life," featuring the hit single "Jah Army," landed in 2011.
