The legacy of Honorable Robert Nesta Marley O.M is like a tremor with its epicenter in the Kingston ghetto, Trenchtown. It was a tremor whose Rasta vibrations 'rocked' the world. He once sang "the stone that the builder refused, shall be the head cornerstone." From that ghetto where he was rejected and spurned as a result of his initial poverty, he rose to almost single handedly make reggae music universal.
One of his crowning moments was the "Smile Jamaica" concert, where he tried to reconcile the feuding political factions and bring peace to his homeland. He always spoke "Jamaican" whenever he was interviewed and one would see "it" in his Jamaican SMILE!
