Ziggy has done a lot over the past two decades. His political activism led to work with the United Nations. He and his family launched the Ghetto Youths Crew and Tuff Gong Worldwide (a spin-off of Bob’s Tuff Gong International) record labels. 

He won five Grammy Awards and a Daytime Emmy Award. He released a pro-marijuana song in support of California’s Proposition 19 initiative to legalize recreational marijuana, and a comic book called Marijuanaman. And he recently released his fifth solo album, Fly Rasta.
