Riddim Driven: “Heathen Riddim”, produced by Big Yard in 2007
Do you remember the “Heathen Riddim”? Well, I do. Especially Shaggy‘s excellent tune titled “Church Heathen”. In this track, he denounces the hypocrisy of certain people who believe they have an irreproachable behavior since they worship God and go to church on every Sunday.
“Dem feel seh thru dem go a church dem sin huh need forgiving… Dem really gone from bad to worse with dem yah careless living.”
In the track “The Pastor”, Ninja Man relatively relates the same story in his song but from he adopts a different point of view as Shaggy. Shelly Thunder’s track “The Gospel” is also related to church. Besides tracks pointing out “church heathen”, this compilation also features a couple of gal tunes and songs for clubbing.
The “Heathen Riddim” includes 12 tracks. It features artists like Ninja Man, Rik Rok, Screechy Dan, Elephant Man, and Red Fox. The compilation is very good. Especially Shaggy‘s track like I’ve mentioned before.
