With tracks recorded in both U.K. (Ariwa & Are We Mad Studios) and Jamaica
(Tuff Gong & Grove Studios) the show belongs to Macka B., who never lacks a
lyric whether he uses a well-known nursery rhyme or deals with one of his
familiar topics, taking a different look at people who change their skin
colour to achieve success. Conscious vibes abound on tracks like "Garvey
Story" & "Rasta Rise Again" and in some tunes Macka B. blurs the line
between singer and deejay. Most of the riddims are laid down "live" using
real drums and bass. This latest effort of U.K. MC Macka B. is certainly
enjoyable, however in the whole range he can't fully live up to expectations with
this follow-up to his truly excellent "Hold On To Your Culture" album.
Included as a kind of bonus (?) are hip hop remixes done by Dougie Digital.
