Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Although the first licks across the "Black Widow" riddim - featuring artists like Red Rat, Daddy Screw, Goofy, Alley Cat, Merciless and Buccaneer - were released approximately a half year ago the riddim continues to be one of the hottest dancehall riddims. So, it's no wonder Beenie Man finally adds another cut to the "Black Widow" list as every artist also wants a piece of a hot riddim to tear up the charts. For those who aren't convinced that he really is 'the undisputed king of the dancehall' Beenie Man's once again showcases his skill and talents as he delivers a solid effort, one that can be considered as another big tune across the in demand riddim. In contrast to Beenie Man's "Gwaan So" Future Troubles delivery is nothing special and belongs to one of the lesser efforts on the riddim.
