The lead track of the "Kingston 13" riddim, Shaggy's collaboration with Tarrus Riley entitled "Just Another Girl", first appeared on the multi-platinum Jamaican superstar's tenth album "Summer In Kingston", digitally released by Ranch Entertainment in July 2011 and since February 7th 2012 also available on cd. And now there's the digitally released 'one riddim' set of that riddim featuring some other big names like Alaine, Gyptian and Rayvon along with fresh talents such as Yung Juggz and Alju.

The "Kingston 13" riddim, produced by Teflon The Producer aka The Detonator, is a real killer. The full sounding riddim, with its driving beat, awesome thumping bass line, ear-carressing 'old skool' organ hook, weeping guitar and a few nice dancehall effects, hits you straight away. Easily the most exciting cuts on the riddim are Shaggy & Tarrus Riley's "Just Another Girl", Red Fox & Alju's "Rocky Daddy Love", and J Boog's "Low the Gunz". Less exciting but nevertheless worth hearing are Alaine's lovers piece "Avalanche", Rayvon's soundbwoy tune "Selecta", and Gyptian's "Reggae Morning", although lyrically it's not that strong. Rapper Yung Juggz contributes two versions of "Live Your Life", but these are rather mediocre efforts.

Truly worthwhile checking out, so ignore at your peril.
