Chezidek is a freedom fighter.

Sampler

chezidekYou know those ”Parental advisory – explicit lyrics” guidelines stamped on loads of hip-hop records? Well, you probably do. A version of that should be on every Chezidek album. It should read ”Extremely fragile – handle with care”. This is because of Chezidek’s voice. It’s high and instantly recognizable, but fragile as a vase.

His second album this year – following the mighty The Order of Melchezedik – is Freedom Fighters, a 15 track set sneaked out below the radar about a month ago. It’s produced by AndrewBassieCampbell and One Drop Records, a label responsible for last year’s Hold the Vibes by Ras Attitude and Truly from Lutan Fyah.

Chezidek has a voice that may take a while to fully appreciate and he may not always be pitch perfect, but he usually gets his hands on strong material and he also has a feel in his voice that many singers should envy.

He sings from his heart and soul about political corruption Mr. Corruption, increasing violence Eye Watas & Prayers and the environment Chemical Free. The latter is one of his favorite topics and has over the years rendered several strong environment anthems, including Leave the Trees and Plant a Tree.

Freedom Fighters ontains enough strong number to be interesting for any fan of rootsy, cultural and conscious reggae.
