Bad news for all those Dancehall diehards who have just recovered from a serious, enduring migraine caused by one of 1999's most popular riddims that ran the dancehalls of Kingston, New York and London. Mo Music's production team has released another wagon load of artists on part 2 of the awesome "Headache" riddim. After that VP Records have wasted no time in unleashing the inevitable 'one riddim' album. "Headache 2" features the familiar entourage of bashment names, some of them already presented on the first volume with cuts over the initial version of the riddim. Best tracks come from Beenie Man, Lexxus, Kiprich, Sean Paul and singer Christopher. Furthermore Scala Lee, whose vocal delivery is reminiscent of Zebra, delivers the notorious "Pum Pum Cut Inna 2". So, this "one riddim" attack contains enough enjoyable and, most of all, danceable cuts to ease the pain !
