Lady Saw and Two Culture Clash

Lady Saw
Strip Tease
When Marion "Lady Saw" Hall spits out "I just wan' be free to express my sexuality" on "Just Being Me," she's pretty much describing the raison d'ĂȘtre for her entire career. For the past decade, Ms. Saw's been the only chick to consistently challenge the dancehall old boys' club on their terms. Chock full of hot tunes ("Man Is the Least" and "Good Love" featuring Sizzla are standouts), Strip Tease is the kind of smart sass that makes Lil' Kim look all the more pathetic. I've never been one for female empowerment through sexuality, but "Pretty Pussy" and "Best Pum Pum" might make a believer of me yet. 8.5/10

Two Culture Clash
Kid 606 with Ward 21? Roni Size with Spragga Benz? Who thought this was a brilliant idea? 6/10
