When people see a legend, they call it a legend. But to be a legend, it's a lot of hard work and patience. You can't play for five or ten years and be a legend. It takes longer than that.
We don't need no more danger, we don't need no more difficulties, we don't need no more misunderstanding, and we don't need no more violence. We need the people to see each other and know of each other, feel each other, touch each other, share with each other, and change hearts with each other.
Reggae music don't really focus on one thing, you know. If reggae music is speaking about the struggle of people, and the suffering, it don't mean black people. It mean people in general.

I like any music I can feel.
I love what I do: there is no pressure. The music doesn't like pressure.
I'm in control of myself. I take yes or no from no one.
Music is my work, writing songs is my work, touring is my work, going into the studio is my work.
