Reggae legend Beres Hammond talks about flying panties, Jah Cure, and the newest stage of his career

"I don't know what went wrong along the way," Hammond says. "The only reason he was around me in the first place was for guidance — for me to give him that big-brother vibration, and I don't know what went astray."

Hammond insists that he and Cure still maintain a friendship — through letters, phone calls, and visits — but there's only so much he can do to show his friend support from afar. "He's my brethren," Hammond offers. "I go and visit him down at General Penitentiary and take him things, but right now, there's not much else I can do."

Hammond has plenty of other things to occupy his time. He's touring again and guiding other young singers, something he feels is important. Harmony House Records is set to release an album of his sometime this year, and he's got a stable full of young artists he's currently producing as well. "I'm always around the music," Hammond says. "I never have time for vacation or anything like that. But as long as melodies and words keep coming, which I have no control over, I'm afraid that I'm in this for the long haul."
