Bounty Killer’s new one “No Long Talking” is one of our favorite tunes of the past month, and our pick for best Bounty song in at least a few years—it’s the Warlord back in top form. We can’t say for sure if it was recorded before or after his recent dust-up with Tommy Lee Sparta, but if that’s what it took to get him back on the level, than bring on the clash!
Bounty’s deejaying aside, what makes the track is Jah Snowcone’s dubstep-influenced, yet fully dancehall, riddim. Producers, this is how you incorporate outside influences into your sound: sprinkle a couple elements here in there in certain parts of the song, don’t water the whole thing down. Thanks to a tip from the Boomshots blog, we’ve learned that a full juggling riddim for Antibiotic, as it’s known, is out, with tunes from Assassin, Spragga Benz, Delly Ranx, Jah Vinci, Elephant Man, newcomer I-Candy and even Lady G. Stream it below, and large up yuhself for this one, Snowcone.
