Macka B is the lyrical chef.

Macka B -  Health Is WealthUK’s smooth chatting lyricist Macka B is back with a new album following the excellent Never Played A 45, which was produced by vintage revivalist Chris Peckings. This new album – Health Is Wealth – has a more contemporary sonic landscape and was recorded in Jamaica, Japan, Germany and the UK.

The album is heavily influenced by Macka B’s ital lifestyle and on several cuts he offers food for thought celebrating his vegan diet. Check for example the anthemic Wha Me Eat (remix), the title track and the viral video hit Cucumba, which has over 43 million views on Facebook.

But Macka B is as usual brimful of lyrics and offers thoughts on ganja on Natural Herb, voiced over a version of the classic Sleng Teng riddim, and refuses the gang lifestyle on the heartfelt Gangster. He also celebrates reggae veterans on not one, but two, cuts – Legendary Reggae Icons and 70’s Legendary Reggae Icons – and together with hitmaker Maxi Priest he revitalizes Ras Michael’s None A Jah Jah Children.

With his persuasive and thoughtful lyrics Macka B could probably turn any hardcore carnivore into a vegan or vegetarian.
