Chronixx believes that reggae is a universal language for social commentary and believes that the home grown Jamaican reggae is still the best. Some musicians are disappointed by lack of support by Jamaicans for their own reggae and dancehall music. There are some musicians fighting for the genre however like Chronixx himself, Romaine Virgo and Christopher Martin.
