"The price is the price, man. I don't dally into that. I do it for the love of it. That's it; Johnny Dread does it for the love of it," he says, obviously annoyed that the subject has even been broached. As for the notion that the festival has lately been kinder to dancehall and reggaetón acts like Sean Paul or Shaggy, with a more commercial appeal, he says: "These guys are delinquents, man... Reggae is alive; it's a tree; it doesn't lie. What you are getting now --reggaetón. These guys are like leaves far away from the roots. Johnny Dread is a fruit, a fruit from the root." He laughs a little and continues, "[Roots reggae] differs because we have a meditation in our music. It's Rastafari! It's a celebration. It's a prayer. The sole reason reggae was invented was to praise Jah."
