Mean Girl Riddim w/ Twice Nice


Mean girl Twice Nice hooked us up some killer Mean Girl/I Need a Roof licks spanning an amazing 40 years. From Larry Marshall's classic lick and hook on Studio One in 1968 to Pavlove, Prince Far-I and Little Joe, to a stepping Channel One version with Mighty Diamond next milestone I Need a Roof. Bunny Lee alway got in on the action this time with a killer soul vocal from Jackie Edwards, some big Joe Gibbs productions went down with Trinity and Junior Byles, Augustus and Hugh Mundell murdered the riddim on Rockers, then of course it came back to Studio One come Sugar Minott. The eighties treated it kindly with some killer early rubadub dancehall at Midnight Rock. The Revolutionaries had not given way to the Casio just yet, but when it did it kept its integrity and bubbled along nice time thanks to Jammys and Black Solidarity. The nineties riddim stayed fat and militant with Xterminator voicing  crucial cuts with Sizzla and Capleton and Cocoa Tea. Come '07 we had Ray Darwin scoring a huge hit for Tads and in '08 Prince Fatty and longtime legend Little Roy rub up the dance nice time - 40 years on. Give Thanks Twice!
