I've heard a song a few times now on Goldfinger's Dancehall show on Radio 1, but he hasn't mentioned a title and I can't find it in the tracklisting on the Radio 1 website.

Info on this Dancehall/Reggae track -

- The guy is rapping very fast, it's hard to make out what he's saying and it sounds like someone is spooling forward through the track and missing out chunks of audio at regular intervals (best description I can give, it's a very distinctive style.) Vaguely similar to Busta Rhymes in speed and stop start phrasing?

- I did manage to make out and remember the word "crack" at the end of the first line

- There is a break and another guy sings about "when the dead come knocking"

- I've heard it a couple of times at least, and it's catchy. I'm sure it's a popular track.

I don't know anything about this music and have tried finding this track without any success.

Put the number for Shazam on your phone, wait for the song to roll round, and 50p later you'll know. Worth every penny.
