Is this offensive?

My good liberal sensors might just be poorly calibrated, but doesn’t this seem kind of offensive?  From emusic.com’s listing of an obscure reggae album by Bigga Haitian:

haitian

The correct title is right there, emusic.  Binghi MAN.  Mr. Haitian may spell his first (er, nick-) name “Bigga,” but he doesn’t always have to type with a extremely cliched Jah-may-kon accent.

(By the way, this album is good.  Recommended, mon!)

    Wow, they should fix that! You’re right though, whatever they call it, it’s a great album.

    Did you know Bigga Haitian put out a new album this year? I actually got it on emusic (and they spelled the title right) and it is AMAZING. Best work the man has ever done. The album is called Sak Pase on a label called Walkup Records. Every tune is a classic but my favorites are My Doorbell (a White Stripes cover!) and Gi Me Da Weed – a true ganja anthem if I ever heard one.

    If you’re a fan of reggae you gotta check it out! Big up Bigga Haitian!

  2. As a matter of fact, it was “Sak Pase” that led me to this find. I’d never heard of Bigga Haitian until I just recently read a review of “Sak Pase” on Achis’s reggae blog (linked in my sidebar). I found that album on emusic – then I found his other one and promptly downloaded it too, because both sounded great.

    So yeah, hell of an artist, and both albums are terrific.

    not offensive… emusic has had wrongly tagged alot of music before… it may well be the info that was sent to them by the related parties…
