Trek6 on Bob Marley Mural for HistoryMiami: "He Never Sold Out" (PHOTOS)

Bob Marley's Legend was released in 1984 and went on to become the number one selling reggae album of all time.

Lesson learned? Revolution is big business. But like Miami artist Trek6 says, "Bob Marley is the one real major pop star who delivered a gritty, anti-establishment message and never watered down his lyrics. His music spoke to millions, but he never sold out."

Now, Bob Marley is coming to HistoryMiami, and Trek6 is completing his commissioned mural in honor of the reggae legend in the museum lobby celebrating the exhibition.
