You might have seen Jammy playing this devastating sound killer in sessions lately, although before that, this Nitty Gritty on Jammy’s ‘Tempo’ rhythm had only been heard on dubplates. No one knows why it never came out. Is it because it was a counteraction to Tubby? Or a tune that was a lethal weapon of Jammy in sessions? There is nothing we can do but imagine those pictures when listening to the intense energy and impact of this tune.
