The success of Praise Ye Jah in 1997, secured a strong following which placed him at the top as one of Reggae's great artist. He released Black Woman, & Child that same year, and the self-titled single become a reggae anthem, lasting almost one decade. It was within this era that he helped lead dancehall back to the musical and spiritual influences of roots reggae, favoring organic productions with heavy Rastafarian teachings, philosophies, and the Back To Africa Movement (Repatriation).

Sizzla has released over 40 albums which include a string of other very successful singles, crossing different genres in Reggae Music. In 1999, Be I Strong was released and Bobo Shanti in 2001, which was spiritually driven and had strong hip hop influence, and in 2002 Da Real Thing was definitely the Reggae album of the year, showing a more softer, mellow, and romantic material.

The Overstanding is a prolific, iritical, meditative and melodic album. The production is a collaboration of genius within the Reggae and Hip Hop industry that have delivered music of great quality and beautiful international sounds. The topics of the album range from issues of love, education, overcoming poverty, teaching values, and life in general. Sizzla is one of the world's most respected figures in dancehall reggae and continues to bless the world with musical masterpieces albums after albums. Praise Be Unto The Most I, H.I.M.
