REGGAE ORIGINAL PIONEERS FROM TRENCH TOWN.

REGGAE- THE ORIGINAL WAILING WAILERS, THEN CAME BOB MARLEY AND HIS GROUP WHO RECEIVED THE NAME FROM THE ORIGINAL MEMBERS- THE TRENCH TOWN REGGAE COMMUNITY- THE TRUE HISTORY OF HOW IT ALL BEGAN. I HAVE TOLD THE WORLD THIS HISTORY OVER THE YEARS, BUT THERE ARE SOME WHO WANTS TO CHANGE THAT. I DARE THEM TO CHALLENGE ME! SO MANY TODAY WANT TO SEE THEMSELVES AS THE ONLY ONES FROM TRENCH TOWN, BUT I HAVE THE DETAILED HISTORY. I AM RAS CARDO.I NAMED AND HELPED TO CREATE THIS GENRE, THE USA, JIMMY CLIFF, TOOTS AND HIS MAYTALS, UK, ROGER STEFFENS, CHRIS BLACKWELL, ETC. ETC. HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH REGGAE CREATION. THIS IS A RAS CARDO TRENCH TOWN REGGAE CREATION. WHO WOULD DARE TO CHALLENGE ME ON THAT?

EXCERPT (c)  REGGAE, ORIGIN OF THE WORD AND INCORPORATION INTO MUSIC.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE- NO APOLOGIES FOR THE TRUTH.

NOW, LET ME GET STRAIGHT TO THE ISSUES INVOLVED HERE AS THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO WANTS ALL THE GLORY, WHILE OTHERS HAVE SUFFERED WITH US, STRUGGLED WITH US, AND DIED PENNILESS FROM OUR TRENCH TOWN WORKS IN REGGAE.

THE TRENCH TOWN REGGAE HISTORY IS SO INTRICATELY WOVEN THAT TO KNOW IT, AND TO REVEAL IT, YOU WOULD HAVE TO HAVE LIVED IT, AND TAKEN THE DETAILS FROM DAY TO DAY TO DAY. THIS IS NOT A HISTORY THAT YOU CAN FABRICATE, TWIST, PLAGIARISE, LIE OR BE DECEITFUL ABOUT. YOU WILL EASILY BE EXPOSED AND YES, SHOWN TO THE ENTIRE WORLD AS A THIEF, A VULTURE, AN OPPORTUNISTIC LIAR.

LOVE IT OR HATE IT- YOU CANNOT CHANGE REGGAE HISTORY INTO SOMETHING ELSE. IT IS DONE!

SO FAR , ANY ATTEMPTS TO MAKE A REGGAE MOVIE WITH TRUTH HAS CHOSEN TO EXCLUDE THE BEGINNINGS- BEFORE THE MUSIC- BEFORE BOB MARLEY- TRENCH TOWN VISIT. THEY HAVE ALL FAILED AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO BECAUSE THE HISTORY AB INITIO IS ABSENT.

REMEMBER THIS- ONE HAND CANNOT CLAP.

FREDDIE MCGREGOR RELEASED A SONG- “BAG A HYPE”. THIS IS SO TRUE. HE HAS BEEN TRUE TO OUR ROOTS, AND OTHERS YOU WILL COME TO KNOW. RESPECT TO YOU MY BRETHREN.

I WILL SAY THIS TRUTH AGAIN, AS I HAVE FOR MANY MANY YEARS, THAT THE TRUE HISTORY OF OUR TRENCH TOWN REGGAE IS NOT BEING TOLD, EVEN BY THOSE WHO KNOW IT.

WHILE I HAVE NO ANSWERS AS TO WHY SOME PEOPLE ACT THE WAY THEY DO, I HAVE SPOKEN ABOUT MY MISSION TO LET THE WORLD KNOW THE TRUTHS AS TO OUR REGGAE HISTORY AND THOSE WHO PLAYED A MAJOR ROLE IN IT.

FOR ME TO SAY AND DO OTHERWISE AS TO THE TRUTH, WOULD MAKE ME AN EGREGIOUS LIAR, PHONY, HYPOCRITE, TRAITOR, AND JUDAS TO THE WORLD AND TO THOSE WHO HAVE GROWN OVER THE YEARS TO KNOW THAT I WILL SPEAK THE TRUTH NO MATTER WHO DON’T LIKE TO HEAR IT.

THOSE WHO HAVE KNOWN ME FROM THOSE YOUTHFUL DAYS KNOW THAT I HAVE NEVER LIED OR BETRAYED ANYONE, OR TO SEEK FAME AND FORTUNE SELFISHLY.

FOR, WHAT IS FAME, AND WHAT IS FORTUNE- THEY ARE ONLY FLEETING VANITIES WHICH WILL FADE AWAY.

IN THE EARLY TRENCH TOWN DAYS WE WERE ALL POOR YOUTHS, AND MANY OF US WHO HAVE RISEN TO CERTAIN HEIGHTS HAVE DIED POOR. I DO NOT HAVE TO SPELL OUT THE NAMES TO YOU. LET ME GET TO THE CORE ISSUE OF THIS EXCERPT.

                                                             PART A-

1. THE ORIGINAL WAILING WAILERS- JUNIOR BRAITHWITE, RICARDO( RAS CARDO) SCOTT, GARTH DENNIS. LOOK AT MY FACEBOOK PAGE. SEE THE ORIGINAL WAILING WAILERS.

2. THE NAME WAILING WAILERS WAS THE CREATION OF JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE AND MYSELF- FROM THE BIBLE VERSE- “A WAILING HAS COME OUT OF ZION”. FROM THE BOOK OF JEREMIAH. I HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT THIS HISTORY IN MY WRITINGS AND BOOKS OVER THE YEARS.

3. ORIGINAL WAILING WAILERS- BECAUSE WE WERE THE FIRST WAILERS REGGAE GROUP ON THE PLANET. THERE WAS NONE BEFORE US, NEW, NOT COPIED OR BASED ON SOMETHING ELSE. THE GROUP FROM WHICH THE OTHERS WERE COPIED.

PART B-

4. BOB MARLEY CAME IN THE AREA TO DWELL AMONG US. HE BECAME ONE OF US. HE WAS NOT -APART FROM US. WHAT HE DID WAS -BECAUSE OF US.

DID HE NOT TELL THE WORLD-” WE COME FROM TRENCH TOWN?”

HE DID NOT LIE TO THE WORLD, AS SOME WOULD WANT TO SAY IT.

WHO WERE THE – “WE”- BOB MARLEY WAS TALKING ABOUT?”

5. THE ORIGINAL WAILING WAILERS PASSED THE REGGAE TORCH TO BOB MARLEY.

BOB MARLEY WENT ON TO FORM HIS GROUP WITH PETER AND BUNNY.

6. WITH THE HELP OF JOE HIGGS, PETER TOSH, SEECO, THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY, JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE, MYSELF AND A HOST OF OTHER PEOPLES WHICH I COULD TELL YOU, BOB WENT ON TO FULFILL HIS PASSION FOR MUSIC.

PART C-

THE DIVISIVENESS OF THOSE WHO LATER SOUGHT TO INJECT DECEIT, DISLOYALTY, DISTRUST, AND DISCONTENT TO DIVIDE THE PEOPLE AND THE COMMUNITY TO THIS VERY DAY. I WOULD NOT HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO WASTE ON THIS ISSUE.

PART D-

THOSE WHO ROBBED AND RAPED THE MUSIC AND THE STRUGGLING ARTISTS, AND KILLED THOSE WHOM THEY SAW WAS IN THEIR WAY TO FORTUNE AND FAME.

PART E-

THOSE CALLING FOR THE DEMISE OF ROOTS REGGAE, AND TO THE SELECTIVE EXCLUSION OF THOSE WHOM THEY KNOW ARE THE ROOTS PEOPLE WHO MADE THIS ALL POSSIBLE.

MY MESSAGE TO THE WORLD IS THIS: REGGAE AND THE MUSIC, IS A TRENCH TOWN CREATION WHICH I NAMED AND HELPED TO CREATE. IT BEGAN WITH US AS THE ORIGINAL WAILING WAILERS- NOT WITH BOB MARLEY AND HIS GROUP.

BOB MARLEY TOOK WHAT WAS GIVEN TO HIM FROM JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE AND I, AND RAN WITH IT.

THOSE WHO KNOW THIS TRUTH AND WANT TO KEEP SILENT ABOUT IT, CAN DO AS THEY WISHED.

I AM HERE TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL THOSE CONCERNED WHO REMAIN AS UNSUNG BE SUNG TO THE ENTIRE WORLD IN TRUTH.

ANYONE WHO SINGS OR PLAYS REGGAE IS SINGING AND PLAYING MY CREATION AND THE TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE. HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU SEEN ME SAY THIS TRUTH?

THIS IS A STATEMENT OF FACT AND TRUTH, NOT ONE MADE TO BOAST.

JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE, PETER TOSH, BOB MARLEY, JOE HIGGS, ROY WILSON, DELROY, ET AL, MAY BE GONE, BUT THEIR TRUTHS MUST ALSO BE TOLD, AND THAT IS WHAT I WILL DO. I KNOW THEY WOULD DO THE SAME FOR I AND I.

TO DATE, I, RAS CARDO HAVE BEEN THE ONLY ONE TELLING THIS TRUTH TO THE WORLD. THOSE WHO KNOW THE TRUTHS AND WISH TO REMAIN SILENT MUST KNOW WHY THEY DO SO.

I FAIL TO SEE HOW THEY COULD REMAIN SILENT IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THERE ARE THOSE WHO ARE TRYING TO KILL THE VERY LIVELIHOOD THAT THEY DEPEND ON.

FOR THOSE WHO WISH TO KEEP LYING AND BELIEVING A LIE, THE CHOICE IS THEIRS.

THOSE WHO TALK ABOUT- THE REGGAE FAMILY- AND THEN SELECTIVELY EXCLUDE CERTAIN TRENCH TOWN PEOPLE-ARE DECEIVERS. THEY SPEAK WITH A FORKED TONGUE, AND ANYTHING THEY SAY MUST BE VIEWED AS SUSPECT.

LISTEN: BOB MARLEY DID NOT BECOME FAMOUS ON HIS OWN. CHRIS BLACKWELL DID NOT MAKE HIM OR PETER TOSH FAMOUS. THESE BRETHRENS WERE SO TALENTED THAT IN TIME THE WORLD WOULD KNOW THEM AS LONG AS THEY KEPT ON SINGING.

WHOMEVER AMONG US  HAVE CHOSEN TO CHANGE OVER THE YEARS, THE CHOICE IS YOURS.

THEY BECAME FAMOUS THROUGH THE POWERS OF THE MOST HIGH GOD OF ALL CFREATION- RASTAFARI IS. HAVE YOU MISSED THE MESSAGES?

THE REGGAE I CREATED IS A SPIRITUAL MYSTICAL MUSIC FORCE.  JAH, IN HIS MIGHTY POWERS KNOWS ON WHO TO DESCEND HIS BLESSINGS FOR THE PEOPLE.

I WILL TRUST THAT YOU NOW SEE THE TRUTH, AND THE LIGHT OF JAH AND HIS TRENCH TOWN REGGAE FAMILY.
