REGGAE- SOME SAY THE GENRE IS DEAD, BUT THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT I HAVE IN STORE FOR THE NEXT 50 YEARS OR MORE. DO YOU WANT TO KNOW?

cardo classic photo 013REGGAE AND TRENCH TOWN LIVITY AND HISTORY IS ALIVE AND WELL.

WHEN ONE DOOR IS CLOSED, MANY MORE IS OPENED.

STIFFED NECKED FOOLS, THEY GOT THE WRONG INTERPRETATION.

THE STONE THE BUILDERS REFUSED.

WHO AMONG YOU SEEK THE TRUTH?

THERE HAS BEEN SO MUCH TALK ABOUT THE DEMISE OF REGGAE IN JAMAICA AND ELSEWHERE.

I AM AWARE THAT THERE ARE THOSE WHO WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS HAPPEN FOR WHATEVER REASONS THEY MAY HAVE.

THE FACT IS, THERE ARE THOSE WHO HAVE RAPED AND PROFITED FROM THE FIRST WAVE OF THE MUSIC WHICH FLOWS FROM THE REGGAE.

BUT, I RAS CARDO HAVE NEWS FOR THEM- REGGAE IS MORE THAN THE MUSIC WHICH CARRIES ITS MESSAGES.

THERE ARE THINGS ABOUT REGGAE AND THE GENRE WHICH I CREATED AND HAVE YET TO REVEAL TO THE WORLD.

TRENCH TOWN HAD A MULTIPLICITY OF TALENTED PEOPLE DURING MY TIME LIVING THERE, AND THE WORLD WILL NEVER KNOW THIS UNLESS I REVEALED IT TO THEM.

WHAT I HAVE IS FOR THE PEOPLE, AND IT READS LIKE THE SCROLLS OF THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT COMBINED.

JAMAICA, COULD HAVE KNOWN CERTAIN TRUTHS LONG AGO WHICH WE WERE WILLING TO SHARE,. BUT WE WERE LIKE OUTCAST IN OUR OWN LAND.

SO, WE REFUSED TO BE WHAT THEY WANTED US TO BE.

KEEP THIS IN MIND- “CAN ANYTHING GOOD COME OUT OF TRENCH TOWN?”

THIS IS WHAT THEY WOULD SAY ABOUT US.

TODAY, OUR REGGAE MUSIC WHICH I NAMED AND HELPED TO CREATE IN TRENCH TOWN IS THE CORNERSTONE FOR THE COUNTRY IN ITS TOURISM AND CULTURE.

NOTHING GOES BACK TO HELP THE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE.

IT HAS BEEN 53 YEARS AND COUNTING TO DATE, YET THE SUFFERINGS CONTINUE ON THE POOR.

IN MY KEEP ARE THE DETAILS OF CAREFULLY DOCUMENTED JOURNALISTIC EXPERIENCES.

IN THIS TIME, THERE ARE SO MANY WHO WOULD LIKE TO STEAL AND RUN TO MARKET WITH WHAT THEY KNOW I HAVE IN TRUTH OF OUR TRENCH TOWN REGGAE HISTORY AND LIVITY.

I AM LIKE THE PROTEIN INTERFERON STOPPING THE INVADING VIRUS WHOSE AIM IS TO DESTROY AND KILL.

THOSE WHO HAVE APPROACHED ME COME WITH SINISTER INTENTIONS, AND CARE NOT TO HELP THE PEOPLE.

THOSE WHO DARE TO COME SHOULD KNOW THAT WHAT I HAVE PROMISED THE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE WILL BE THEIRS IN A TIME APPOINTED, AND WILL BE KEPT.

SO, FOR ALL THOSE WHO CARE TO KNOW- KNOW THIS!

REGGAE AND THE MUSIC IS VERY MUCH ALIVE, AND READY FOR ITS NEXT MANIFESTATION.
