Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Four cultural songs on the new Kariang "Culture Bashment" riddim delivered by ace singjay Sizzla, "the outlaw" Terry Ganzie and new talents Chezidek and Lisa Danger. Sizzla, one of the most anticipated reggae artists to hit the scene in years, delivers a solid effort in which he fully reflects his talent quality. As usual Sizzla presents great conscious lyrics - here fired across an up-tempo riddim - in his well known inimitable vocal style. Deejay Terrie Ganzie is regarded an outspoken cultural deejay, who actually was among the most original of the fresh crop of deejays to emerge in the mid-nineties. His Wicked & Hot is a good example of the man's ability to deliver a decent cultural tune, especially when he manages to find his flow. The performances of both newcomers can be regarded as nice efforts on the riddim but in the end it's singer Chezidek, utilizing a vocal style that is reminiscent of Pinchers, who makes the strongest impression. It is most likely that he's the one we've to watch in the future.
