Sim Simma still a hit..20 years strong

Sim Simma also known as Who am I the girls dem sugar, a cross over hit of the late nineties that became this timeless hit world wide continues its influence on the music world. Almost 20 years old, released in 1997 it adds fruit to the adage good music has no age. Probably known more by the Bennie Man title , the true name of the riddim is the Playground riddim  produced by multi talented producer/musician Jeremy Harding for his 2 Hard Record label, during its early years it  also spawned hits for a then emerging Sean Paul ( Infiltrate) and Mr. Vegas ( Nike Air )

Those of you who remember it was somewhat controversial at the time  because of the verse . Pass me the keys to the trucks ( a copy of Missy Elliot's the Rain/ Beep Beep  hot tune at the time)  how could I make love to a fella ....in a rush which was interpreted as Bennie Man suggesting making love to a fella in a rush........ Obviously not Bennie Man's intention but you know people always looking for excitement

Pree the original


But  true to the original its  thick bass line that made it the perennial hit in 2015 it has been  used for a new generation...maaaaad

Firstly you might have picked it up in this USVI maad hot jam from Rock City " I'm That Nigga" NSFW

Then more recently in the UK rappers Krept & Konan freak of the week ft. Jeremih
 
The song entered the UK Singles Chart at number seven, making it the duo's first top 10 single. Plus there is a you tube remix of the same chune featuring Popcaan + Beenie Man.

 Maaaaaaaaaaad props to Jeremy the tune still a gwaaan  large
