I Wayne Lava Ground
- Words: James Mayo
- Label: VP
With a voice as soft as Garnett Silk-the late reggae crooner to whom he‘s often compared-I Wayne‘s seductive style burns with a fire that desires righteousness. The single "Can‘t Satisfy Her" issues participants in the skin trade this warning: "Flames and fire...burn di flesh, seller, and the buyer." On "Bleacher," I Wayne sets ablaze those who use bleaching cream to lighten their skin color. Throughout, the Portmore, Jamaica native uses beautiful melodies and one-drop riddims to celebrate life and chant down the whores of Babylon. With Lava Ground, I Wayne erupts as a major elemental force in Jamaican music.
