The Freddy v Jason Riddim is one of the most highly anticipated Riddim of the Year. The Compilation brought to you by the great minds of Gramma & Ryan encompasses a “Halloween concept” depicting enemies (Freddy & Jason) going at each other, hence the abundance of Rivals that feature on the Riddim. The Compilation is the first in a long time to feature artists from rival factions in DANCEHALL such as Yeng-Badness, Gaza, Wildside Govament, The 6six Camp, LodgeCult, Stingas & a host of talented young artists who took the opportunity to showcase their talent and provide a balance of symmetry on the Compilation. Just put on your Iphone or music device and just “press play” as you will enjoy this Album from the very first song to 28. Every track is a hit in my opinion. Lets motivate the industry to bring back Riddim juggling, it was so essential to the growth of Dancehall and as a result Dancehall is left in a dire predicament.
Trap-Dancehall’s heavy hitters Squash and Daddy1 as well as TeeJay, Ishawna, Christopher Martin, Gage and Ace Gawd assemble on the Different Rankin Riddim produced by two of Jamaica’s top producers, Hempton Music and ShabDon Records. King Waggy Tee from 99 JAMZ Miami includes the mix on his end of year ‘Dancehall 2020 Mixtape.’
First heard with the release of Squash’s song “Different Rankin” which appears on the Reggae Gold 2020 compilation, the title track for the Different Rankin Riddim quickly became popular with the core Dancehall market. That popularity led to the song being chosen by VP Records Senior A&R Neil ‘Diamond’ Edwards as one of the lead tracks for the Reggae Gold 2020 compilation.
Proving popular among the artists as well, the decision was made to add artists to the riddim resulting in 7 artists covering topics popular in Dancehall segments worldwide. Since the release of the music video by Trap-Dancehall King Squash, the accompanying music video has earned 2 million views on YouTube.
King Waggy Tee from 99 JAMZ (WEDR FM) in Miami picked up on the Different Rankin riddim and included it on his Dancehall 2020 Mixtape.
