"Stephen Davis: Why have so many cultural explosions - reggae, Rastas, dope - come from Jamaica?
Peter Tosh: Because we are the prophets of this Earth. We are they who were executed by Alexander the blood-clot Great and those great pirates who used to go round and chop off the saints' heads. All these things are revealed between the lines through the Third Eye. I & I see ourselves as the reincarnated souls of those carried off into slavery."
