Does anyone know this dancehall reggae song?

Right after the intro that Ali G gives, in the cut sequence before the interview starts, there is a dancehall sounding reggae song clip. Anyone know what it is?

(There is also an additionl shorter piece in the middle somewhere.)

Thanks.

This thread on the HBO forums site is also trying to figure it out. It's not entirely clear, but it appears that someone has guessed dillinja "Twist 'em out". I can't for the life of me find a copy of that song; maybe you can, and see if it's the one.

Also, I'd call it more garage / 2-step than dancehall, if that facilitates your search.

I don't have audio on my work computer, so I can't check out the clip.

I can say, though, that if it's 2-step/Garage, then I'm guessing it's not Dillinja, that song is more of an upbeat jungle thing (around 180BPM). They play that song a lot, in additon to "Hornet" and a few others by Bad Company.

I'd check out "Ride Wid Us" by So Solid Crew and "Shoot to Kill" by Oxide & Neutrino. Those are both 2-steppy and I know were definitely used in Ali G.

I'd say its drum and bass / jungle, but i don't think it sounds like Twist em' Out. Could be a remix, though.
Bad Company is plausible

According to the Youtube comments, the song is called "Dem No No We" by Aquasky vs. Masterblaster

Well, it definitely isn't the "Dem No No We" by Aquasky vs. Masterblaster. Still following other leads.

I haven't found the exact track, but I'm listening to some Bad Company stuff, and it sure sounds similar.
