Bounty Killer reminds us why he’s called the Poor People’s Governor on this standout cut from Suku Ward 21’s Law Riddim. He doesn’t hold back his opinions, tackling many of the biggest social issues facing Jamaica today, his vigour and in-your-face delivery providing a superb contrast to the stripped-down bass driven production. We first heard the Law Riddim when another attention-grabbing track in Agent Sasco’s “Our Law” dropped in the summer. A full release of the riddim followed in December with a total of 19 artists, a rarity these days. — Gibbo
