YES! THERE ARE SOME WHO SAY I AM A -REGGAE HISTORIAN- TO CATEGORIZE ME AND GROUP ME WITH ALL THOSE WHO ARE JUST ROBBERS, HOARDERS, STEALERS, COLLECTORS, PLAGIARERS, AND FALSE REPORTERS OF OUR TRUE HISTORY. THIS IS HOW THEY DO IT TO DISCREDIT YOUR TRUE WORKS, AND TO DENY YOU THE RIGHTFUL HONOR WHICH THEY WISHED TO RAPE FROM YOU EVEN WHEN YOU ARE IN YOUR GRAVE. I KNOW THEM ALL. I WILL MAKE SURE THEY DO NOT ESCAPE. I HAVE SEEN THEM USE PIECES OF MY WORKS IN THEIR BOOKS. I HAVE SPOKEN TO A FEW OF THEM IN THE PAST. THEY KNOW I AM THE CREATOR OF REGGAE, AND THAT’S WHY THEY HAVE CAUSE TO WORRY. I AM RAS CARDO FROM TRENCH TOWN.

EXCERPT.(c) BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM JAH SON. LET JAH ARISE AND ALL HIS ENEMIES SCATTER.

WITHOUT PREJUDICE AND WITH TRUTH. NO APOLOGIES

LET WHO THE CAP FITS- WEAR IT!

LET ME MAKE THIS POINT EXPLICITLY CLEAR:

THE GUINNESS BOOK OF RECORDS WILL NEVER HAVE WHAT I HAVE IN THE CREATION HISTORY OF REGGAE.

AND WHATEVER THEY ACQUIRE FROM THOSE WHO WERE NEVER IN TRENCH TOWN WITH US, WILL NEVER REPLACE THE TRUTHS IN THE LIVITY OF THE HISTORY WHICH I, RAS CARDO, THE TRUE CREATOR OF REGGAE HAS.

NOW, THIS WORLD IS FULL OF PEOPLE WHO WILL EVENTUALLY BELIEVE A LIE IF THEY HEAR AND SEE IT REPEATED ENOUGH TIMES. SO THOSE WHO STEAL FROM OTHERS TO MAKE MONEY- THE PARASITIC VULTURES- AS WE CALL THEM, KNOW THIS IS TRUE.

THEY ARE LIKE SOME FUNERAL UNDERTAKERS- WHO GLADLY COLLECT THEIR FEES FOR BURIAL WHILE THE TEARS ARE FALLING.

ALL THESE YEARS OF OUR REGGAE HISTORY BEYOND TRENCH TOWN HAS PASSED. MANY OF OUR PEOPLE HAVE PASSED AWAY.THE NAMES I COULD TELL YOU READ LIKE A LAUNDRY LIST. MOST PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT THE DEATHS OF BOB MARLEY AND PETER TOSH.

SOME HAVE READ AND HEARD THE CONCOCTED STORIES OF THOSE WHO WERE NEVER IN TRENCH TOWN, BUT VISITED AND TOOK SOME PICTURES WHILE ASKING THOSE WHO WERE NEVER THERE ABOUT THE HISTORY.  THEY HASTILY RUN BACK TO THEIR HOMES IN THE US, UK, OR WHERE THEY HIDE AWAY, AND COLLABORATE WITH THOSE WHO HAVE COLLECTED SOME STOLEN MEMORABILIA OF THESE ARTISTS OVER THE YEARS.

WOULD YOU BELIEVE THAT IT WAS ALSO MENTIONED ON THE SHOW- JEOPARDY- THAT REGGAE WAS THE CREATION OF TOOTS AND HIS MAYTALS IN 1968.? THIS IS WHAT I AM ALSO TALKING ABOUT. A BIG LIE.! A BIG JOKE!  I AM NOT LEAST WORRIED. I HAVE THE TRUTH.

TOOTS, JIMMY CLIFF, AND THOSE WHOM IT HAS BEEN MEDIA RELATED THAT THEY CREATED – REGGAE- HAS HAD ENOUGH YEARS TO CHALLENGE ME ON IT. MAYBE, YOU THE READER CAN ANSWER THAT. 

LISTEN: NONE OF THESE INDIVIDUALS WERE IN TRENCH TOWN WITH US. HAVE I NOT TOLD THE WORLD THIS MANY TIMES?

THESE INDIVIDUALS THEN CROWN THEMSELVES WITH THE NAMES- REGGAE HISTORIANS. REGGAE EXPERTS. REGGAE PROFESSORS. THE NAMES AND TITLES GO ON AND ON.

THEY WILL TAKE CERTAIN STATEMENTS FROM MY BOOKS- AND SOME WILL MENTION MY NAME IN THE QUOTES, THEN THEY WILL JUXTAPOSE IT WITH WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO CONVEY, TOTALLY IGNORANT OF THE CONTEXTUAL NATURE OF WHAT I MADE MY WRITINGS TO SAY.

THE INTENT OF DOING THIS IS OBVIOUS, THEY KNOW MY QUOTES ARE THE TRUTH, AND THE TRUTH WHICH I STATE MAKE THEIR WORKS LOOK MORE CREDIBLE.

THERE WAS ONE FREELANCE JOURNALIST WHO READ ONE OF MY BOOKS, AND SAID HE DID NOT FIND THE TRENCH TOWN STORY HE WAS LOOKING FOR- YET IT WAS RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIS FACE.

I HAVE DISSECTED THEM ALL TO DATE, AND SEEN WHERE AT THE LEAST, THEY ARE MAKING OTHERS AWARE THAT WE EXISTS, EXCEPT THOSE WHOM THEY ARE EAGERLY TRYING TO ERASE FROM THE HISTORY. THEY WILL NEVER WRITE SOME OF THE REAL TRUTHS WHICH I KNOW, THEY HAVE READ-eg. FROM MY BOOK- REGGAE JAMAICA- PAGES 204-212, AND PAGES- 264-265. ET AL.

I HAVE SPOKEN AND MET A FEW OF THEM OVER THE YEARS, AND HAVE SHARED SOME TRUTHS SINCE I AM NOT ONE TO TELL LIES, OR TO PROFIT THEREFROM. IT WAS MY HOPE THAT THOSE WHOM I SHARED THE TRUTH WITH WOULD HAVE BY NOW, MAKE OTHERS AWARE OF IT AND FROM WHOM IT CAME, BUT NO!- THEY REFUSED TO SAY THAT IT WAS ME THEY GOT IT FROM.

I WILL FEATURE THEM LATER. THEY FOLLOW ME AROUND. THEY KNOW I HAVE THE TRUTH, SO THEY WORRY. BUT KNOW THIS- 

HE WHO HAS THE ARK OF THE COVENANT WILL BE FEARED BY MANY NATIONS.

BUT, AS MY STUDENT AND BRETHREN SAID-” THEY WILL DO ANYTHING TO MATERIALIZE THEIR WISHES”.

ANYTHING, EXCEPT  TELLING THE WORLD THE TRUTH THAT THEY HAVE STOLEN FROM MY WORKS.

THEY ARE TRYING TO ERASE THE NAMES OF THE -TRUE HISTORIANS- OF OUR TRENCH TOWN REGGAE HISTORY.

ANYTHING THAT I SHARED WITH THEM, I HAVE IN MY OWN WORKS SHARED WITH THE REST OF THE WORLD.

IN FACT, THEY USE MY WORKS TO MAKE OTHERS BELIEVE THAT I AM IN CONCERT WITH THEM. NOT TRUE! NOT TRUE!

THEY USE MY WORKS TO SELL THEIR BOOKS, AND TO MAKE OTHERS BELIEVE THAT IT ORIGINALLY CAME FROM THEM.

THEY USE MY WORKS TO FIND OTHERS FROM TRENCH TOWN AS LISTED IN MY BOOKS BY NAME, AND TO GET SOME OF OUR HISTORY, THEN NEVER COMPENSATING THESE FOLKS.

NONE OF THEM HAVE RECEIVED WRITTEN PERMISSION FROM ME TO USE MY COPYRIGHTED WORKS.

NONE OF THEM KNOW THE REASONS AND CONTEXT IN WHICH I WRITE, AND THEY HAVE NOT THE DECENCY OR RESPECT TO MY WORKS WHICH BY MY NAME ALONE, GIVES THEIRS THE SEMBLANCE OF CREDIBILITY FOR THEM TO PROFIT THEREFROM.

                                WARNING!     WARNING!      WARNING!

I HEREBY PUT THE ENTIRE REGGAE WORLD AND THOSE WHO HAVE USED MY UNAUTHORIZED WORKS- ON NOTICE.

THAT, I RAS CARDO WHO NAMED AND CREATED THIS GENRE- REGGAE- IN 1962 TRENCH TOWN JAMAICA, WILL HOLD ALL THOSE VIOLATORS OF MY RIGHTS ACCOUNTABLE.

MY WORKS CAN BE SHARED WITH OTHERS ONLY WITHING THE LEGALLY DOCUMENTED CHANNELS, SO THAT PROPER CREDITS BY NAME WILL BE GIVEN. THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO ABROGATE THIS STRICT REQUIREMENT WILL REAP THE DIRE CONSEQUENCES.

RELEASE OF THE NAMES OF THOSE VIOLATORS WILL BE FORTHCOMING.

AS THE RIGHTFUL AUTHOR OF MY WORKS, I HEREBY ASSERT MY FULL RIGHTS UNDER LAW- SECTIONS 77, 78- COPYRIGHTS AND PATENTS ACT OF 1988 et sec.
