6. Wul Dem/Wul Dem Again

When Yellow Moon Records and DJ Sunshine released Wul Dem in late spring it only had threeย artists on it but that would soon change. The riddim was pure war settingsย with Alkaline, I Octane and Mavado all calling out badminds โ€“ without naming names. It wasnโ€™t long before Vybz Kartel jumped on the riddim, coming full force to remind people that heโ€™s still the Worl Boss with his track “Nuh Play Roun Wid Fyah.” Wul Dem became so big that it spawned the Wul Dem Again Riddim and the just-released Christmas Wul Dem Riddim. bothย sticking to the war-time concept, with hard-hitting lyrics and a fast-paced beat meant to put all contenders in their place. Alkaline, Kartel, Mavado and I-Octane all came back for this release, along withย Elephant Man, Aidonia and Mr Vegas โ€“ all with big chunes. Many a wall gets slapped when you run this one. โ€“ DJ Arems
