I actually wrote in about this one in regards to the Super Cat feat. Biggie's vocal interpolation in Dolly My Baby. They agreed to switch that vocal sample to Papa San's original Maddy Maddy Cry version since that was also the source for General Degree and Papa San's hybrid remix/mash up for Granny Granny Cry. The original entry on here had credited the Granny version as the Biggie vocal source. As far as Granny being a cover of the original Maddy version, that is certainly up in the air. Reggae tunes are almost always hybrid remixes since you get dozens of DJ's and singers rockin over the same riddims. While Granny and Maddy did not share the same riddims, they both worked the identical bugged-out choruses to the same effect. Tough call determining what is a cover and what is a vocal interpolation/sample when you're talking about reggae music.
I'm tempted to change this to a cover... Second opinion anyone?
