According to our itinerant style assistant Erin Hansen, this is one of the biggest riddims in Jamaica right now. We will take her word for that because she first heard it at the Scrub-a-Dub strip tease and car wash in Negril, which is today's version of hearing a song coming out of Studio One in 1972, as we understand it. Technically, nothing more than the instrumental from Ne-Yo's "Miss Independent," Vybz version has of course already inspired a response from recent FADER coverstar Busy Signal called "Gangsta Nuh Bleach" that you can hear below. If you don't know why we say of course, you can catch up with the Alliance (Busy) versus Empire (Kartel) battle by listening to the free Uncharted War mixtape, also below.
