Yes, Bob Marley is the king of reggae, because no other reggae artist has even come close to what he has done. Quite simply, Bob Marley was the pioneer of his genre of music.

I think Dennis Brown must be mentioned. He's not as internationally known as Marley, but in Jamaica, in my opinion, is equal if not the true King of Reggae. Even Marley said himself, that Brown was the best reggae artist in the world.
