Nice feel to the track and some well chosen sounds and FX.
However for my tastes, there is a bit too much reverb throughout the track (or at least too much on the main instruments) and also I think mix wise you might benefit from glueing the track more together - the elements aren't quite gelling sonically as cohesively as they might, and it sounds in some ways like you're just playing around too obviously with a sample pack of MC 'toasts' over a reggae instrumental bed rather than really developing this track further as your own.

The skanks don't sound abrupt and percussive enough to my ear, and could do with some more top end IMO. The left hand muting is absolutely fundamental to getting the sound right.
