Chezidek is one of a select few roots singers who sticks to conscious lyrics in his music and never veers into popular hype. As a youth, coming from the home of the Honorable Marcus Garvey, Robert Nesta Marley and Burning Spear, Chezidek was influenced by the ancient Rastafarian tradition and his African roots. He is a man of righteousness inspired by the Most High Jah Rastafar I.

It is another chapter from the book of the spiritual chanter, Chezidek the herbalist, the environmentalist, the Italist, the defender of cannabis, sharing his songs of redemption with all reggae fans worldwide as he continues on his spiritual, musical journey with the message of righteousness and justice.
