“NAPPY RIDDEM/One World Sovereignty: Simply a first class party on a platter in which we find pomo and alt coming to black music as reggae mixes it up side by side with James Brown, Parliament and a host of one world future sounds that find their basis and soul in soul music, R&B and the future of rhythm. They are here to get the party started and they forget to punch out”
- CHRIS SPECTOR (MIDWEST RECORD)
"Nappy Riddem (the duo of Mustafa Akbar and Rex Riddem), whose “One World Sovereignty” debut is a rhythmic, global-flavored collection of positive-minded songs."
- Going Out Gurus (Washington Post)
"Nappy Riddem's One World Sovereignty: Washington, D.C., is known for its booty-shaking go-go music but Nappy Riddem adds a globe's worth of other influences to the mix. The result, on this album, is an irresistible blend of '60s soul, reggae, hip-hop and electro impulses that should have anyone with a spine hurtling out to the dance floor."
