“I don’t fight for inspiration. The riddim brings inspiration. If the riddim is militant and heavy, you have to fight this battle called life. I meditate and go inside. I don’t sing a melody in front of everyone. The music is already there. I make everything from scratch. It’s not just singing a song. The bottom line is sincerity. I do it for myself. It’s about word, sound and power. It’s always about word and sound. These things come together in music.” – Vaughn Benjamin, singer of the reggae band Midnite .
