Riddim Of The Day: What What

So, to start a new 'Dropping Riddim Knowledge' series here today's Riddim is called 'What What', as made famous by Capleton's 'High Grade' and which samples heavily The Neptunes produced classic 'Superthug' by N.O.R.E., check out the live version below.

And If I remember correctly, Superthug was The Neptunes' real breakthrough hit as a production team way back in 1998, or something.

Anyway, it's still a banger even if IHMO Capleton would kick Nore's ass any day because 1.) he dresses in way funkier style, and 2.) he's more likely to be seen blessing a hefty Chalice, instead of drinking Crystal out of some stupid blingy pimp cup or something.

I know hardly anything about Jamaican riddims in general. The most common databases do not say anything about the What What riddim but High Grade is supposed to done to Okay riddim instead... whatever.
