Toppa Top 10: The Best Caribbean Albums of 2011

10. I-Wayne, Life Teachings (VP Records)

On his third album, Life Teachings, Fiya Wayne continued in the vein of his two previous releases: burning fire on the wicked, giving health tips (beet root anyone?) and exalting the virtuous, all with a squarely roots approach that sounds even more original in today’s soundscape. It is exactly this which helps I-Wayne stay so relevant in Jamaica and lets singles pop up off his albums as many as two years after their releaseโ€”He keeps it pure.
