AllMusic Review by

Utilizing one of the trends popular in dancehall reggae, this album takes one piece of music and puts several different artists over it. This track, called a "riddim," is used by 15 different combinations of rappers and singers throughout the album. Then at the end, all the different versions are chopped up and put into one big mega-mix to showcase all the different ways it was handled. This is a unique idea that has become somewhat of a sub-genre in itself around the turn of the century, and this album is an excellent example of it.
