Shaggy Goes Gospel?

I just saw a music video by rapper Shaggy entitled "Church Heathen" on Yahoo! Music that you must absolutely see!

The video is clearly an indictment against false-only-on-Sunday Christians and other church pretenders.

I probably need subtitles to understand everything he was saying, but the visuals are undeniable.

The song has a beat that has clearly come from Africa and is deeply embedded within various religions that our ancestors embraced after being stolen from their homeland.  I have heard the rhythm within songs by singers in South Carolina singing in a a Geechee style with only hand claps, foot stomping, and a pole to keep the beat.

Check out the video and reach your own decision!

I am still in awe of the video and give it an 8 of 10.
