TRENCH TOWN REGGAE MUSIC LEGENDS-WHO ARE THEY, AND TO WHOM IS THE NAME JUSTIFIED? THE MUSIC INDUSTRY HAS INHERENT THE SEEDS OF EXPLOITATION, DEHUMANIZATION,PROFIT IMPERATIVE,DIVISIVE SUBJUGATION TO WHICH SOME ARTISTS WILL SACRIFICE THEIR SOULS. I CREATED REGGAE NOT TO BE A PART OF THAT SYSTEM OF CONTROL. LIKE MOST CORPORATIONS,THE MUSIC INDUSTRY, THOUGH IT MAY BOAST ABOUT OPERATING BY MORAL PRINCIPLES, IT IS STRUCTURALLY AMORAL. I SPEAK WITHOUT PREJUDICE, AND WILL ASK ANYONE WHO CALL THEMSELVES A REGGAE LEGEND- TO TELL ME WHAT KIND OF MUSIC THEY WERE SINGING OR PLAYING BEFORE I CREATED REGGAE IN 1962 TRENCH TOWN. LISTEN! I WILL SAY THIS AGAIN, WHOMEVER SINGS OR PLAYS REGGAE MUSIC, IS SINGING AND PLAYING MY CREATION. IF YOU BELIEVE THAT TOOTS OR JIMMY CLIFF, OR ANY OTHER ARE REGGAE LEGENDS THEN ASK THEM WHAT THEY WERE SINGING BEFORE REGGAE CAME ON THE SCENE. I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THEY NEVER SANG REGGAE BEAT MUSIC UNTIL MY CREATION DEFINED AND BROUGHT LIFE TO THEIR FLEDGLING CAREERS. THEY NEVER SANG ROCKSTEADY EITHER. I KNOW THOSE PEOPLE WHO HELPED THEM WITH THEIR CAREERS. I KNOW THEY WERE NEVER WITH US IN TRENCH TOWN WHEN I CREATED REGGAE IN MY BACKYARD. SO, WHEN REGGAE DEFINES A LEGEND, IT IS A STRICT DEFINITION. NOT WHAT YOU WILL SEE OTHERS WRITE ABOUT IN THE MUSIC CORPORATE MEDIA. REGGAE MUSIC DOES NOT LEND ITSELF TO SUCH SECULAR AND AMORAL DEFINITIONS OF CORPORATE GREED AND EXPLOITATIONS. I SEND THIS CHALLENGE TO ANYONE IN THE INDUSTRY OR MEDIA . KNOW THE TRUTH! GET THE TRUTH. SPEAK THE TRUTH! I AM RAS CARDO- REGGAE CREATOR AND LEGEND FROM TRENCH TOWN. GET EDUCATED FROM THOSE WHO KNOW THE TRUTH.
