Clearly Jah Cure’s Longing For was the tune of the year, and Drop Leaf was the number one riddim.
Extremely popular riddim, but really a modestly inventive. Once Donovan 'Don Corleone' Bennett finally decide to put an effort into a one drop you’d think, based on his history of wild dancehall riddims, that it would be more original then this. But it has that vibe...
I think Jah Cure’s Longing For is one of the few tunes in later years that will become a classic. It has all the prerequisites, except perhaps the fact that once Jah Cure is free, you will have to start to think about the lyrics as “jah cure” rather then “Jah Cure”. But still, I can see this magnificent tune being Jah Cures signature, a tune that will follow him through his career.
Speaking of Jah Cure, can anyone figure out how he can spend his days in the studio while still being in jail for another few years? Just about every sound in eh world has fresh Jah Cure plates! I was kinda under the impression that jail sentences in JA wasn’t something that was taken lightly, and that JA law system really wasn’t know for turning themselves inside out to meet the wishes of the imprisoned... But you learn something new ever day, don’t ya?
Speaking of roots, check out the Tempo cuts on the Ras I lable. Brutal heavyweight cut of this classic riddm with real strong performances from a mix of big names (Capleton, Jah Mason, Lutan) and nonames.
Well back to Drop Leaf... nuff other great tracks on the riddim but surprisingly enough no one riddim as of yet. Also a strange selection of artists... more to come?
Bounty Killer - It's OK
Gentleman - Intoxication
Jah Cure - Longing For
Jeffrey Star - I'm Sorry
Luciano - For The Leaders
Maxi Priest - I Believe
Morgan Heritage - Your Best Friend
Sizzla - Be Strong
Tanya Stephens - After You
TOK - Footprints

Comment by: Dj Youngstradar A Date: 2006-07-01 Comment: The drop leaf was definately the riddim of the year, but I think TOK's Footprints really hit, with Jah Cure's Longing for. You could listen to them al day long.

No words can be put together or describe T.O.K's 'Footprints',them and Jah Cure killed it...

Big up everyone that did there thing on the 'Drop Leaf'...

Comment by: N5EKO Date: 2006-05-07 Comment: thats an unfergetable riddim.Bounty did his thing Morgan Heritage [YOUR BEST FREIND]hot one.Now you know ladies,is not always the man who is lying.But the two best songs everyone know is FOOTPRINTS by T.o.k and [LONGING FOR] by Jah CURE.
Comment by: the m@ster Date: 2006-05-01 Comment: Hey to answer your (the webmaster) question about
how is it possible for Jah Cure to record dubs while
he's locked up...if you see the article in Riddim
Magazine on him (issue 2 i believe)...I'm pretty sure
it implies that since he's well liked by some of the
officers, they allow him out from time to time to
spend time in the studio...strange scenario but
there you have it!
