Rose Gold

It's a shame that Stone Love's Rose Gold rhythm is so great, yet all the officially released voicings so uniformly craptacular. However, listening to a mix picked up in Crown Heights, Brooklyn it became clear that there are, in fact plenty of other quality versions not to be found on seven. Some are original specials, but a lot of the best are overdubs of lyrics first recorded for the Dancehall Rock, like Assassin's "Do It If Yuh Bad" and Spragga Benz's "Put Foot Ova", which you might also have heard atop grimester Lethal Bizzle's FWD rhythm a while back. Anyway, less waffle mo' music...

Do It If Yuh Bad - Assassin

Put Foot Ova - Spragga Benz
