ROOTS | REGGAE
As one of Jamaica’s foremost Rastafarian reggae artists committed to delivering consciousness raising, uncompromising convictions through his music, I Wayne has fittingly named his third album for VP Records “Life Teachings”. “We are sharing life’s joys and messages, so that’s why we call the album “Life Teachings”, I Wayne explained. “Its an unlimited thing because I am working for life and will continue doing life works, that is what I Wayne is all about.” I Wayne built his reputation burning lyrical fire on a litany of societal ills from prostitution to child molestation to skin bleaching, although his dulcet, high-pitched vocals belie such thunderous denunciations.
In 2005 I Wayne’s “Can’t Satisfy Her”, a gritty, cleverly told tale of a troubled young woman who began “strip dancing before she reached eleven,” was added into rotation on New York City’s influential hip-hop station Hot 97; the song reached no. 31 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
