JAMAICA’S ENTERTAINMENT LAWYERS-REGGAE MUSIC- FOR BETTER OR WORSE? WORKING IN COMPLICITY AND COLLUSION WITH OTHERS AT HOME AND ABROAD IN CALLOUS DISREGARD AND RECKLESSNESS FOR THE TRUTH, HAVE DONE IRREPARABLE DAMAGE TO THE REGGAE CULTURE AND THE FLEDGLING CAREERS OF THE GHETTO YOUTHS. I SAY THIS WITHOUT MALICE OR PREJUDICE TO ANYONE. I CREATED THIS GENRE AND THE MUSIC TO HELP THE POOR YOUTHS TO FIND A VIABLE WAY OUT OF THE VIOLENCE AND DEATH THAT I KNOW HAVE DESTROYED MANY A POOR LIFE IN JAMAICA AND THE WORLD. MY QUESTION TO ALL YOU MEMBERS OF -“THE BAR”- BOTH NEAR AND FAR IS THIS: WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO HELP THE FLEDGLING REGGAE CAREERS OF THE POOR GHETTO YOUTHS? WHY HAVE SO MANY YOUNG AND TALENTED ARTISTS BEEN SOLD OUT WHILE YOU ENJOY THE UNJUST ENRICHMENT FROM OUR TRENCH TOWN REGGAE CREATIONS? ITS BEEN 55 YEARS TO DATE SINCE I CREATED THIS IN MY TRENCH TOWN BACK YARD. IT IS NOT YOUR CREATION. WHO WOULD REALLY WANT TO CHALLENGE ME ON THIS TRUTH? IF YOU LITIGATE -REGGAE MUSIC CLAIMS- YOU ARE LITIGATING MY CREATION. IF YOU USE MY REGGAE TO ROB AND STEAL FROM OTHERS YOU ARE SERIOUSLY INFRINGING ON MY RIGHTS. THE POOR GHETTO YOUTHS ARE AT A SEVERE DISADVANTAGE BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO ONE TO SAFELY GUIDE THEM THROUGH THE DARK MAZE OF CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS. ONCE THEY SIGN, THE MURDEROUS MUSIC CONGLOMERATES HAVE THEM TRAPPED. I OFTEN TELL MANY THAT THIS IS NOT LIKE-FILING A MITIGATION CLAIM- FOR A STAY OF EXECUTION. THIS IS CIVIL, ALTHOUGH IT BEARS THE SCARS OF – MURDER SHE WROTE. CAVEAT: WORD TO THE WISE- KNOW WHAT YOU ARE SIGNING. ALL MASSIVES BEWARE!

EXCERPT  FROM (c) TRACKING EVIL- THE TRUTH BY RAS CARDO FROM TRENCH TOWN.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE

DID NOT MY STUDENT, ARTICAL BRETHREN- BOB MARLEY, AND OTHER MESSENGERS TOLD THE WORLD ABOUT-” THEM GRADUATING THIEVES AND MURDERERS, SUCKING THE BLOOD OF THE SUFFERERS?”

” BUILDING CHURCH AND UNIVERSITIES, DECEIVING THE PEOPLE CONTINUALLY”.

“THEY DON’T WANT TO SEE US UNITE. ALL THEY WANT IS TO SEE US KILLING ONE ANOTHER”. THEY DON’T WANT TO SEE US LIVE TOGETHER IN LOVE AND HARMONY.

WE MUST  REFUSE TO BE WHAT THEY WANTED US TO BE.

WHEN WE SAY- TELL THE CHILDREN THE TRUTH, WE MEAN -TELL THE PEOPLE THE TRUTH!

LET THE ENTIRE REGGAE WORLD AND OTHER INTERESTED PARTIES KNOW THESE TRUTHS.

I HAVE BEN ASKED MANY QUESTIONS OVER THE YEARS, BY PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD WHO WANTED TO KNOW JUST WHO BOB MARLEY, PETER TOSH, JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE, AND OTHERS FROM OUR TRENCH TOWN REGGAE FOUNDATIONS WERE.

THERE ARE THOSE WHO WANT TO KNOW THE HISTORY SO THAT THEY CAN RUN TO MARKET TO EXPLOIT THE INFORMATION FOR THEIR OWN GAIN.

YES! I AM AWARE OF THE DAMAGE THE MERCHANTS OF REGGAE FORTUNES HAVE DONE TO MY CREATION AND THE MANY DEATHS AND LIVES THAT THEY HAVE DESTROYED.

KEEP THIS IN MIND: NONE OF MY BRETHRENS AND SISTRENS LIVED TO REACH -OLD AGE. NONE OF US HAD AN EASY PRIVILEGED LIFE.

FOR THOSE WHO KNOW NOT THE TRUTH- JUST TRY TO THINK ABOUT MAKING MUSIC WHEN BULLETS ARE FLYING OVER  YOUR HEAD, AND YOU ARE WITNESSING DAILY THE DEATHS OF YOUR CLOSE FRIENDS AND FAMILIES.  

THINK ABOUT SHARING AND GIVING TO OTHERS YOUR LOVE, TRUST AND LOYALTY AND YOUR WORK PRODUCTS- WITHOUT A SIGNED AGREEMENT- ONLY TO HAVE IT LATER LIED TO AND TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU IN OPEN COURT BY THOSE WHO CAN HAVE A PREPONDERANCE OF LIARS ON THEIR SIDE.

I AM PRIVY TO A LOT OF CASES, AND WILL NOT CALL NAMES HERE, BUT WHOMEVER THE CAP FITS MUST WEAR IT.

THERE ARE THOSE WHO WILL READ THESE TRUTHS AND WILL TRY TO REFUTE WHAT IS SAID, BUT THEY KNOW THE TRUTH.

SO MANY HAVE BEEN MISGUIDED, LIED TO, SOLD OUT, AND BETRAYED BY LAWYERS WHO HAVE PROMISED TO-“REPRESENT ” THEM.

I SPEAK SPECIFICALLY TO -REGGAE MUSIC- BECAUSE THIS IS MY CREATION, AND THE GENRE OF MUSIC WHICH HAS MADE THESE HUNGRY, EGREGIOUS- AMBULANCE CHASING VAMPIRES IS- REGGAE.

REGGAE HAS GIVEN THEM THE REASON AND PLATFORM FOR THEM TO GLORIFY THEMSELVES WHILE THEY DECEIVE AND DESTROY THE LIVES OF POOR, IGNORANT AND TALENTED GHETTO YOUTHS.

I MUST REMIND THEM THAT IT IS MY REGGAE CREATION WHICH HAS REDEFINED JAMAICAN CULTURE, HELPED THE LIVES OF MANY TO HAVE A PRODUCTIVE AND PURPOSEFUL EXISTENCE, AND YES- MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR THESE MERCENARIES OF REGGAE FORTUNES CALLING THEMSELVES- ATTORNEY’S AT LAW- TO BE ABLE TO PUT FOOD ON THEIR TABLE AS-ENTERTAINMENT LAWYERS.

WITHOUT MY REGGAE CREATION, WHICH OTHER PERFORMING ARTS GENRE OF MUSIC WOULD THEY HAVE TO FLAUNT THEIR UNJUST ENRICHMENTS WHILE THE POOR GHETTO YOUTHS LIVES ARE DESTROYED?

MANY OF THEIR CAREERS HAVE BECOME NOTHING MORE THAN HUGE, LUCRATIVE BUSINESS PLATFORMS FOR ROBBING THE YOUTHS. WHILE SPEAKING WITH FORKED TONGUES THEY HAVE MANUFACTURED WAYS TO AVOID THE USUAL  CONFLICTS OF INTERESTS CLAIMS WHILE THEY COLLUDE, CLANDESTINELY CONSPIRE, AND ACT IN COMPLICITY WITH OTHERS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS.

MANY OF THE CASES HAVE BEEN SOLD OUT TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER WHILE THE ARTISTS HAVE BECOME VICTIMS OF SCHEMES WHICH HAVE DIVESTED THEM OF THEIR HARD EARNED WORK PRODUCTS.

A PLETHORA OF CASES EXISTS WHICH SHOWS A BASIC FAILURE AND RELUCTANCE OF SOME TO  AGGRESSIVELY LITIGATE AND EFFECTIVELY VINDICATE THE LEGITIMATE CLAIMS OF THE YOUTHS. THEY SHAKE THE BOUNDS OF IMPROPRIETY, AND EVEN THE APPEARANCE OF IT CAN BE DAMAGING.

THEY THINK ITS ALL A JOKE- DESTROYING THE LIVES OF THE YOUTHS IN THIS MANNER.

THOSE YOUTHS WHO SHOULD QUESTION THE HANDLING OF THEIR CLAIMS FACE ALMOST CERTAIN CAREER OR PHYSICAL DEMISE.

TIME WILL TELL, AND AS BOB SANG- “THINK YOU ARE IN HEAVEN BUT YOU LIVING IN HELL.” I AM RAS CARDO- REGGAE CREATOR FROM TRENCH TOWN. I SPEAK WITHOUT PREJUDICE!

HEALTHCARE IS THE SINGLE MOST INDEPENDENT FACTOR AND LITMUS TEST OF A COUNTRY’S DESIRE TO HELP ITS PEOPLE. I SPEAK THIS WITHOUT PREJUDICE OR ANY POLITICAL AFFILIATIONS. IT SHOWS NO AFFILIATION TO POLITICAL PARTIES, AND DOES HAVE A COMMON ROOT. COMPLEXITY IS ITS HALLMARK. IT IS THE PUBLIC RESPONSIBILITY OF GOVERNMENT IN MOST COUNTRIES. HISTORY HAS SHOWN THAT CUTBACKS IN HEALTH SERVICES IN THE ’80’S AND 90’S, LED TO AN INCREASE IN THE DEATHS OF INFANTS, ALMOST TRIPLED.I REMEMBER WRITING ABOUT THE TIME WITH-DRG’S(Diagnostic related groups),AND THE MANY PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH IT. THE POOR ALWAYS SUFFER MOST IN THESE CIRCUMSTANCES, FOR THEY ARE THE ONES MOST EASILY MARGINALIZED. WHAT WE HAVE JUST SEEN IS BOTH -FAILURE OF APPROACH, AND FAILURE OF ADMINISTRATION. SICKNESS MAKES PEOPLE FORGET ABOUT POLITICS. I HAVE LISTENED TO MANY- (c) DYING DECLARATIONS. READ MY BOOK. IT IS THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR WHICH DETERMINES A PERSON’S QUALITY OF LIFE, MEANING AND PURPOSEFUL EXISTENCE, WITHOUT WHICH THERE IS NONE. YOU CAN QUOTE ME ON THIS. BE SURE ITS EXACTLY AS I SAID.HEALTHCARE WILL NOT LEND ITSELF TO “QUICK-FIX ” SOLUTIONS. THIS WILL ONLY CAUSE US TO REPEATING ERRORS OF THE PAST. WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH. SOME EXTREMISTS COULD LOOK AT THIS WANTON AND RECKLESS DISREGARD FOR HEALTH AS AN ATTEMPT TO-“MURDER BY VIRTUE OF EXTREME RECKLESSNESS”. THE SICK AND POOR WILL MOST CERTAINLY DIE. MY REGGAE HAS SAID THIS TRUTH OVER THE YEARS-” WHEN THE RAIN FALLS, IT DOES NOT FALL ON ONE MAN’S DOORSTEP”. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS? I AM RAS CARDO FROM TRENCH TOWN.PEACE!

TO ALL-REGGAE NAYSAYERS AND CRITICS: RAS CARDO REGGAE SAY- WHERE IS YOUR PROOF? WHERE IS YOUR EVIDENCE? HOW LONG MUST THE WORLD WAIT TO SEE THE TRUTH THAT YOU ARE LIARS AND DECEIVERS? YOU CANNOT CHANGE THE HISTORY. YOU CANNOT SHIFT THE FOCUS. THERE IS NO PLACE FOR YOU TO RUN AND HIDE IN THIS TIME. WHAT YOU HAVE POSTED ON INTERNET SITES AND SERVERS IS A LIE. THE PEOPLE WILL NOT WAIT FOREVER. YOUR DISTRACTIONS, DECEPTIONS, AND DIVISIVE SCHEMES WILL NOT WORK. RAS CARDO REGGAE SAID-“TELL THE CHILDREN THE TRUTH!’ HIS INCONTROVERTIBLE, INDUBITABLE, AND INDOMITABLE WORKS HAVE SILENCED EVEN THE MOST DEVOUT SCEPTICS. RAS CARDO STANDS WITH THE SWORD OF TRUTH AS TO HIS TRENCH TOWN REGGAE CREATION.HE SPEAKS AND WRITES WITHOUT PREJUDICE. SELAH!

LISTEN UP! YOU CAN QUOTE ME ON THIS,- WITHOUT PREJUDICE- BUT MAKE SURE ITS EXACTLY AS I SAID. THE QUESTION: “RACISM AND WEED SMOKING”,-” WHITES AND BLACKS UNITING”.- WHY IS IT THAT THIS HUMAN COMMUNION SEEMS TO BE THE ONLY THING WHICH MAKES WHITES AND BLACKS APPEAR TO BE IN HARMONY? MOST WHITE/BLACK TOURISTS VISIT JAMAICA FOR THE FREEDOM THEY CAN HAVE IN SMOKING WEED WITH RASTA WITHOUT DETECTION FROM AUTHORITIES. A MAJORITY VISIT JUST TO GET THEIR FIX. ANYONE WHO HAVE WATCHED THIS ASSEMBLAGE OVER THE YEARS WILL SEE THIS TRUTH. YET, BY THE TIME THESE VISITORS RETURN TO AMERICAN SOIL, IT IS A DIFFERENT REACTION. IF WHITES AND BLACKS IN AMERICA COULD MAINTAIN THIS “HARMONY”, AS THEY SHOW IN JAMAICA, AMERICA WOULD BE A MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE IN RACE RELATIONS. THE HARMONIOUS AND HYPNOTIC EFFECTS OF REGGAE MUSIC MAKES THIS ALL POSSIBLE. OVER THE YEARS THE REGGAE MESSENGERS HAVE TOLD THE WORLD ABOUT THIS TRUTH, BUT NO ONE SEEMS TO LISTEN. IT IS INTERESTING TO SEE WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT IN THE GANJAHGRICULTURAL( my coined term) CLIMATE OF JAMAICA. REGGAE IS NOT ABOUT WEED SMOKING. RASTAFARI USE IT AS A SPIRITUAL AND MEDICINAL HERB. DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY BABYLON. I AM RAS CARDO REGGAE FROM TRENCH TOWN. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

REGGAE CREATOR’S DECLARATION. RAS CARDO STATES: I AM THE CREATOR OF REGGAE AND THE ONLY DETAILED LIVING RESOURCE OF ITS HISTORICAL TRENCH TOWN CREATION. I HAVE MADE JAMAICA, AND OTHERS FULLY AWARE OF THIS TRUTH.NO INDIVIDUAL, ENTITY, COUNTRY, CORPORATE CONGLOMERATE, GOVERNMENT, SYSTEM, SEEN OR UNSEEN, HAS THE HISTORY THAT I HAVE AS THE CREATOR OF THIS GENRE. THEY CAN REFUSE TO PRINT OR PUBLISH MY TRUTHS. THEY CAN CONTINUE TO LIE AND DECEIVE THE PEOPLE, BE IT IN SOCIAL MEDIA OR OTHERWISE. THEY CAN CONTINUE TO TELL THE WORLD THAT-“no one knows where reggae came from, or who created it”. THEY CAN KEEP TELLING THE WORLD ABOUT BOB MARLEY’S MUSIC AND HIS INVOLVEMENT. THIS IS WHAT DECEIVERS DO WHEN THEY TRY TO STEAL THE CREATION OF OTHERS. I TAUGHT BOB MARLEY MANY THINGS. I WAS HIS TEACHER. THEY KNOW THAT I HAVE THE TRUTH, AND THEY ARE AFRAID TO CONTEST ME AND ANSWER MY MANY CHALLENGES SENT TO THEM OVER THE YEARS. THE QUESTION IS: “WHY HAVE THEY NOT DARED TO CHALLENGE ME OVER ALL THESE YEARS?” THEY WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO DISCREDIT, OR DIVEST THE ORIGINAL PEOPLE OF TRENCH TOWN OF THEIR CREATION.I AM RAS CARDO WHO CREATED THIS GENRE, AND STAND AS A LIVING RESOURCE TO TELL THE WORLD THE TRUTH ABOUT IT. NO ONE ELSE CAN SAY OR DO THAT! I SPEAK THESE TRUTHS WITHOUT PREJUDICE TO ALL THOSE WHO THINK THEY CAN ESCAPE DETECTION. THE TRUTHS I HAVE WILL EXPOSE THEM ALL, AND DASH THEM INTO PIECES LIKE A POTTER’S VESSEL. THE TRUTH MUST SWIM LIKE OIL. MY REGGAE WILL NOT BE MOVED OR USED AS A TOOL FOR LIES AND DECEPTIONS.

NO! NO! NO! I CANNOT SPEAK FOR JAMAICA ON THIS TROUBLING QUESTION.-” WHY WOULD ANY COUNTRY ALLOW OUTSIDERS TO HAVE MORE MATERIALS OF ITS CULTURE( i.e.-REGGAE CULTURE), AND CULTURAL ICONS, THAN IT HAS IN ITS ARCHIVES?” THOSE WHO KEEP ASKING ME THIS SHOULD KNOW TO CONTACT THE CULTURAL AFFAIRS OF THE COUNTRY IN QUESTION. I CAN ONLY SPEAK FOR MYSELF AND FROM WHAT I KNOW THEY CAN NEVER PUT THEIR HANDS ON. MY ARCHIVES ARE LIKE NO OTHER. I WILL OPENLY CHALLENGE ANYONE TO CONTEST ME IN THE TRUTHS WHICH I DELIVER. HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU SAW ME – WITHOUT PREJUDICE-SAY THAT? I AM IN NO RUSH TO EXPOSE THE LIARS, THIEVES,IMPOSTERS, VULTURES, VAMPIRES, AND MURDERERS OF OUR ROOTS REGGAE CULTURE WHICH I NAMED AND HELPED TO CREATE IN MY 1962 TRENCH TOWN BACKYARD. WHAT WAS LOST/STOLEN FROM- BOB MARLEY, PETER TOSH AND OTHERS HAD NO BEARING ON MY KEEP. THOSE ARTISTS WHO HAVE SOLD THEIR SOULS(WORKS) TO OTHERS FELL VICTIMS TO THE SLOGAN-“THE RISING TIDE WILL LIFT ALL BOATS”. THEY WERE DECEIVED. I HAVE TOLD THE WORLD ABOUT THIS YEARS AGO. MANY NOW HEAR THEIR SONGS AND HAVE NO CLAIMS TO THEM.BABYLON SYSTEM IS A DECEIVER.I AM RAS CARDO. INCIDENTALLY, SOME HAVE ANSWERED THE QUESTIONS ALREADY BY SAYING,- THEY ARE TRYING TO SAVE THE CULTURE. SOME WANT TO BUILD MUSEUMS. WHOSE COLLECTIONS DO YOU THINK WILL BE DISPLAYED IN THOSE PLACES, AND AT WHAT COST? WILL JAMAICA HAVE A CHOICE? YOU DECIDE. THESE MERCHANTS OF FORTUNE WILL NOT DO IT FOR FREE. JAMAICA DOES NOT HAVE THE VISION AND FORESIGHT I HAVE FOR MY REGGAE CREATION, AND YET THEY COULD HAVE ACCESS TO MANY THINGS IN MY KEEP FOR FREE. WHOSE FAULT IS THAT?

REGGAE INNA AMSTERDAM- THE NETHERLANDS.MY MESSAGE TO THE DUTCH PEOPLE IN THEIR ELECTION TIME.- I AM AWARE OF THE LOVE YOU HAVE SHOWN TO OUR REGGAE MESSENGERS WHO HAVE VISITED YOU OVER THE YEARS. MY REGGAE IS NON-POLITICAL! IT IS MY HOPE THAT JAH LOVE BE SHOWN TO ALL HIS PEOPLE. PREJUDICE AND HATE HAVE NO SHARE IN IT. PEOPLE OF ALL FAITH MUST BE RESPECTED AND PROTECTED. THE REFUGEES AND MOROCCANS FROM THE ATLAS MOUNTAINS TO TIMBUKTU AS IS ALL MUSLIMS MUST BE SHOWN LOVE. THEY HAVE A VERY RICH BUT OFTEN MISUNDERSTOOD CULTURE WHICH IS WORTHY OF RESPECT. THE RASTAMAN GIVES RESPECT TO ALL. MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE OR HATE. REMEMBER THE HORRORS OF-ANNE FRANK’S HOUSE. REMEMBER THE MARTYRS OF RESISTANCE. REGGAE ALSO HAS ITS VICTIMS. I SAY TO YOU ALL-“SOUVIENS-TOI”-REMEMBER. REGGAE IS ONE LOVE FOR ALL PEOPLE. I AM RAS CARDO WHO CREATED IT. PEACE!
