Straight out of the talented King Jammy's powerhouse studio, comes a wicked hardcore up-tempo street beat called "20 Cent". Producer of this strong new dancehall riddim is promising newcomer "Baby G" aka Trevor James Jnr, which makes him of course Uncle T's (Jammy's brother) son. Twenty cuts for the riddim are gathered on #41 in the "Greensleeves Rhythm Album" series, another enjoyable bashment set featuring a massive line up of talent from Jamaica. Right from the moment the riddim reached the clubs in JA and abroad there has been an incredible buzz. The riddim caused nuff excitement and became red-hot with a few cuts on heavy rotation including Elephant Man's "Burn Fi Burn", Wayne Marshall's "The Way", "So Smooth" by former ARP vocalist Daville and the combination tunes "Angillitto" by Beenie Man & Silver Cat and "Lazy Gal" by Mad Cobra & Keke Flint, all featured here. Best tracks are delivered by Elephant Man, Beenie Man & Silver Cat, Bounty Killer, T.O.K., Daville, Wayne Marshall, Zumjay and hot singing sensation Anthony Cruz. However, don't overlook Ward 21's "Gal Technician" and "Third Leg" as these are the tracks that seem to buzz.
Highly recommended stuff for the avid dancehall massive!
