Editors’ Notes

In 2011, the ranks of Jamaican artists making quality roots music are largely populated by battle-hardened veterans with careers spanning at least a handful of decades. Beres Hammond, Cocoa Tea, and Glen Washington all continue to make outstanding, socially conscious roots reggae, but their music mostly appeals to older audiences. The young singer I Wayne has proven himself an exception to this trend. In 2004, the twentysomething Wayne cut a series of singles that managed to evoke Burning Spear in his heyday even as they scaled the Jamaican charts and entered rotation at New York’s tastemaking hip-hop station Hot 97. I Wayne’s third album, Life Teachings, bears the winning hallmarks of his previous work, from its deeply worn one-drop rhythms and massed horn sections to its sensitively written songs praising herb and condemning Babylon. These classic roots themes are made more compelling not only by Wayne’s reliably silver-toned delivery but also the masterful instrumental contributions of legendary Jamaican session men like Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare.

Customer Reviews

I-Wayne did it again...

The artist already said it best on the first track, "Life truth worth more than hit song and anthem".
Though I'm certain the album contains some of those too.

One of the "most anticipated" albums of 2011 (Life Muzik at its best!!)

I Wayne is back with one of his best albums yet, On this album I Wayne takes you on a journey of love and rightiousness, with hits tracks such as: life teachings, real and clean, drugs and rum vibes, pure as the nile, life joy, herb fi legalize, fire song ft. Assassin, change them ways... his last album "Book of Life" lived up to the hype drawed in by his hit single "Can't Satisfy Her" from his first album, but this album is sure to surpass where its predecessor left off. If you're a fan of Consicous and uplifting music, which is the essence of roots reggae, this is the album for you.

True life teachings

Probably his best album yet. True life teachings!!
