Jah know, star, too much killing man,” Singer J said. He then performed his single “Put Jah First” which was produced by Mineral Boss. So far cops have not made any arrest in the two murders which took place only weeks apart.

Sizzla Kalonji closed the show at daybreak and used part of his set to take shots at dancehall artist LA Lewis over a leaked explicit video.

Beenie Man Responds To His Daughter Desha Ravers Criticism


Beenie Man responded to some recent criticisms from his daughter Desha Ravers in a new song.

Last month, Desha Ravers, whose real name is Deshagaye Davis, publicly called out Beenie Man for being a bad father. “Mi just think him need fi step up him thing,” the dancer said. “Him a mek whole heap a luu moves suh him just need fi start be a man, a father and everything inna one now,” she said without going into specific details about her contention with the deejay. “The person weh everybody know out a road a nuh the person weh me know.”

Fans Crown Vybz Kartel The King of Dancehall


Is Vybz Kartel the king of dancehall?

Fans of the genre have been debating for the past few weeks about who is the king of dancehall music after crowning Spice the new queen. Beenie Man and Spice butt heads last month over whether or not she is the new dancehall queen since Lady Saw hang up her mic. According to Beenie, the “So Mi Like It” deejay is more of a self appointed designated queen and then she shot back accusing him of doing the same thing.

Spice accused the Doc of being a self-proclaim king while referring to Kartel as the true heir to the throne. Dancehall HipHop conducting a poll on social media where we asked fans who is the king of of Jamaica’s dominant music culture. Approximately 71 percent of respondents chooses Vybz Kartel over Beenie Man as the current king of dancehall.

“Right now I think Spice and Vybz Kartel are the queen and king of dancehall, I have ratings for Beenie Man, but right now Kartel is the man even from behind bars,” one fan told us. “There is no debating that the Worl’Boss achieved a height in dancehall that Beenie never did and even in prison the man is still running the game.”

“Beenie Man was the king but his rein has come to an end its Vybz Kartel who is the true king now,” another fan added. “Beenie should retire now just like Lady Saw and let Kartel take the title. Nothing wrong with these old heads stepping aside making way for the new generation to run the business.”

Despite the enthusiasm of some dancehall fans, there are still some folks who thinks that Beenie is still at the helm of dancehall. “Beenie is still the king but Kartel is seriously a strong contender for the title, but it’s foolish to think the either is the king right now when Sean Paul achieved so much for the music,” one fan said.

Vybz Kartel, who is currently serving life in prison, released an album last year titled King of the Dancehall. The pro


Spice Is The Queen of Dancehall Says Fans



Dancehall fans have spoken and the overwhelming majority thinks Spice is the new queen.

Beenie Man and Spice ignited a heated debate this week with their ongoing back-and-forth about the issue of her being the new dancehall queen. According to Beenie, Spice is more like a self-appointed designated queen of dancehall, but Lady Saw is still very much the queen. Seems the vast majority of dancehall fans thinks that Spice is the only female artist at the moment who is deserving of the crown.

Dancehall HipHop did a survey on social media this week asking fans if they think that Spice is the new queen of dancehall and 67% of respondents say yes. “Spice is the only consistent female artist in dancehall right now because most of them just do something make a lot of noise and then you don’t hear nothing from them,” one fan wrote while another added, “From Lady Saw turn Christian a Spice a run the thing, she consistent she always find a hit and her video them bad.”

A handful of fans who responded seems to agree with Beenie Man and thinks that Spice has more work to do before she can be elevated to the throne. “Some fans a bash Beenie Man but him right with what he said because Spice has a lot more work today to reach even close to the levels of Lady Saw,” one fan wrote. “You have to be a global dancehall icon to be the queen you can just hot a yard alone. Lady Saw was doing big collaborations with No Doubt and having platinum records. Spice has yet to reach those heights in music to be crowned the queen.”

“While I agree that Spice is the leading female dancehall artist right now, I still don’t think she works hard enough to be the queen,” one fan said. “A just some ignorant fans without proper reasoning a criticize Beenie statement when if you really think about it he is right. If you weren’t around in the 90s and 2000s to know what Lady Saw did for dancehall then you have no part in this conversation.”


Lolaasmiles Gets Dancehall Legend Beenie Man On New Track



Reggae star Lolaasmiles taps dancehall legend Beenie Man for her new single “Nuh Baddah.”

The song has been doing well since it was first released a years ago and now the single is seeing a resurgence. Lola thinks that the track will help further push her career in the reggae/dancehall space. “Nuh Baddah” was produced by New York based producer Stedley Reid. Her team is now heavily promoting the single and the extra promo has been working thus far.

“This song has a lot of potential, and with the plan I have in mind it will have a long-lasting effect worldwide,” Lolaasmiles said. “Beenie Man has always been an inspiration to me, and when I found out we had a mutual friend, I had to meet him in person. When we met, he liked my music and we spoke about collaborating and made it happen. It was a very humbling experience working with Beenie Man.”

The song is now available on YouTube and other major streaming services like iTunes/Apple Music and Google. It will be available on several other digital services in the coming weeks.


Vybz Kartel “I Am The King and Spice The Queen of Dancehall”



Vybz Kartel has added his voice to the feud between Beenie Man and Spice over who the dancehall queen is.

The firestorm started last weekend when Beenie Man told Winford Williams on OnStage that Spice is more like a self-appointed designated queen of dancehall and not one who has the support of the vast majority of dancehall artists. Spice shot back on her Instagram page saying that Beenie Man too is a self-appointed king of the dancehall, but the real king, in her opinion, is behind bars, Vybz Kartel.

Seems the Gazanation boss has been tuning in to whats been happening and decided to add his voice to the mix. Kartel posted a comment on Spice photo on IG this morning assuring her that she is the queen. “Queen of Dancehall you look good nuh bloodcl**t,” Kartel wrote. “Queen of Dancehall in her throne drinking sperone.” Spice posted a photo of herself actually drinking Sperone.

Our Gaza sources told us that Vybz Kartel supports Spice as the queen and himself as the king. “Addi the King and Spice the queen that’s how dancehall set right now and Vybz Kartel showing that he can rule from behind bars,” sources told us. “All the old people them fi retire and stop badmind the younger acts. Addi a the king, the greatest to ever set foot on a dancehall platform no one can dispute that. Lady Saw was the queen but she gave up the throne and baptize, we wish her the best, but the only female who can fill her shoe right now is Spice.”


Beenie Man Says Spice Is Not The New Queen Of Dancehall



Beenie Man says Spice is not the new queen of dancehall music at least not yet.

Earlier this tear, Spice crowned herself the new reigning queen of Jamaica’s dominant music genre, dancehall, a title previously held by Lady Saw who is now a gospel artist and a pastor. In 2015, Lady Saw relinquished her crown to become a Christian and she never looked back. She struggled with the transition for years before finally making her break-through. Since then no one stepped up to set on the throne at least not until this year when Spice stepped up to the plate.

There is no doubt that Spice has been a force in dancehall for the past few years, but is it enough to wear the crown for the queen of the dancehall? Beenie Man answered that question during an interview with Winford Williams on OnStage last weekend. “Well the queen of dancehall baptized now… Marion Hall [Lady Saw], the queen of dancehall baptized,” Beenie Man said. “So I am here to see the next queen to come.” When asked about Spice crowning herself, Beenie said, “Well she is the one that stepped up to the plate but that’s not how you become the queen.”

“Because if you’re going to take Lady Saw crown then you have to do what Lady Saw did like no disrespect, you can’t do less work and [want to be the queen],” Beenie added. The dancehall king lamented that Spice will have to elevate her career to the same heights as Lady Saw in order to gain the respect of the fans. “Becomes that artist that you know… she is Spice in Jamaica, she is Spice everywhere Jamaicans is, she is Spice everywhere Caribbean people is, she needs to be Spice where American and British people meet,” the Doc continues. “I am not talking about watching Instagram and talking about song, reaching the people ears the right way, being that artist that we can sit down in Jamaica and look on you on MTV and look on you on VH1 and say alright she has done it and she has reached that point. Because Lady Saw did it and she reached that point.”

Beenie Man added that Spice is more like the queen-elect, but still has more work to do to elevate her career to the next level.


Spice Responds To Beenie Man “King of Dancehall Is Incarcerated”



Spice is not too happy about Beenie Man statement over the weekend about her being the new queen of dancehall.

The “Sheets” deejay react via Instagram on Monday calling the dancehall legend a hater just because she thinks that Vybz Kartel is the king of dancehall. “D Rasta man [Beenie Man] vex true mi say a Kartel a the king a dancehall,” Spice said. “Smh Veterans want to be praised for paving the way but still never want to let go or embrace the New artiste. You crowned yourself king when yellow man was really the king and then over the years you were found fit after repeatedly self proclaiming it.”

From around the mid-1990s, Beenie Man proclaimed himself as the king of dancehall and despite some rejection from some artists and fans at the time, it eventually sticks. There is always a debate in dancehall about who is the king, but there has never been a real debate on who the queen is until now because Lady Saw fittingly wore that crown for the past two decades. Spice has now stepped up to plate and crowned herself and that territory comes with controversies.

“Unlike bounty killer who highlighted so many dancehall careers what did you ever do for dancehall after so many years as the “KING” Not even a one girl yu never buss as a dancer much less not even your own daughter a Ding Dong haffie dweet Kmt,” Spice added. “Saw left a huge shoe to fill and no female will fill it overnight. Nothing is wrong with your sentence “The Queen got baptized” we all know that, but you also do know that the king is incarcerated right.”

Spice also used the opportunity to promote her new single with Beenie Man’s ex-wife D’Angel, “No Worries.”

D Rasta man vex true mi say a Kartel a the king a dancehall. Smh Veterans want to be praised for paving the way but still never want to let go or embrace the New artiste. You crowned yourself king when yellow man was really the king and then over the years you were found fit after repeatedly self proclaiming it. Unlike bounty killer who highlighted so many dancehall careers what did you ever do for dancehall after so many years as the "KING" Not even a one girl yu never buss as a dancer much less not even your own daughter a Ding Dong haffie dweet Kmt. Saw left a huge shoe to fill and no female will fill it overnight. Nothing is wrong with your sentence "The Queen got baptized" we all know that, but you also do know that the king is incarcerated right ? ?

Some a unu egotistical hypocrites a talk bout a pure slackness mi sing just answer which female sung the most slack songs in dancehall history ? When I sing good songs they don't even get played but as mi sing a slack song a it unu know. Haters can't bring me down Same thing unu did do Bob Marley unu never claims him or highlight him until he became international but trust me I'll work hard enough to see the bandwagonist.

Vybz Kartel’s Gazanation Fans Angry Over MOBO Awards Snub



Vybz Kartel was not among the five names nominated for the 2017 MOBO Award for Best Reggae Act and his are furious.

The list of nominees for the 2017 Music Of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards for Best Reggae Act came out last week and all five nominees are local Jamaican artists. Popcaan, Alkaline, Aidonia, Chronixx, and Damian Marley are the five nominees this year. A lot of dancehall fans are again questioning why Vybz Kartel was snubbed despite having a massive year last year which continues into this year.

“The system trying to fight against the boss [Vybz Kartel] but they can’t stop him,” one fan wrote. “Kartel had a bigger year than Popcaan, Aidonia, and Alkaline and yet he was not nominated for a MOBO are you kidding me. This is utter nonsense and that’s why people can’t take these awards serious anymore.”

Fans echoed some similar sentiments last year when the deejay was not nominated. There is an underlining reason why Vybz Kartel may not get a MOBO nomination, at least as long as he is behind bars he may never get a nomination per the rules of the award show. Additionally, MOBO is based in the UK where most radio stations are barred from playing songs from convicted felons who are serving time behind bars like Vybz Kartel who is doing life for a murder case.

One fan criticized those fans who are angry at Kartel’s MOBO snub while drawing reference to his album sales numbers last year. “Don’t make music fool you prison is taking a hold on Vybz Kartel Now you cannot be in prison for murder and get the mobo award and apart from that he’s not doing any live performance 3249 in 15 weeks sales for the top dancehall artists of 2016 that’s a shame on dancehall and Vybz Kartel the great Shabba Ranks used to sell millions and Beenie Man gaza fans please don’t even brag about it on YouTube 3249 copies that’s a shame on Kartel?” Joel wrote.

Despite being incarcerated since 2011, he has remained in the top echelon of dancehall with a consistent supply of new music. Last year, he came under investigation under orders directly from the Ministry of National Security for allegations that he has been recording music in prison, something that would be illegal and could potentially send him into solitary confinement. Nevertheless, new music continues to pour out of Vybz Kartel coffers like hot bread and he is showing no signs of slowing down.


Beenie Man Denies Copying Bounty Killer “I Am Not A Pirate”



Beenie Man has denied Bounty Killer claims that the dancehall king copied his style back in the 1990s.

Killer recently did an interview where he criticized Beenie Man for bootlegging his style on the 1990s classic “Bad Man Wicked Man.” Speaking with Anthony Miller on ER last weekend, Beenie Man shy away from speaking too much on the issue but revealed that he got inspirations for the song from Terror Fabolous and Jigsy King.

“I don’t know what he is talking about,” Beenie said while referring to Bounty Killer. “First of all I am not a pirate.” The self-proclaimed king of the dancehall went on to outlined where he got inspirations for the classic dancehall banger.

Beenie Man and Bounty Killer have been longtime rivals in dancehall in a feud that spanned the greater part of the 90s decade. The two have been peace over the years, but now they have a dysfunctional family type of relationship where they support each other, but often criticize each other. In the same interview on ER, The Doc called out Bounty for his “petty” feud with Foota Hype and Tony Matterhorn.


Beenie Man Upset With Bounty Killer For Feud With Foota Hype & Matterhorn



Beenie Man says he is upset with Bounty Killer for entertaining a feud with Foota Hype and Tony Matterhorn.

Social media is the battlefield these days for a lot of the feud in dancehall. Artists throwing words against other artists and sound system selectors cursing out artists as in the case of Bounty and the two veteran disc jockeys. During an interview with Anthony Miller on ER, Beenie Man weights in on the feud while expressing his disappointment with his longtime rival Bounty Killer.

“I feel like competition is what keep you on your toes, keep you on the edge, it make you sharp and build faster lyrics,” Beenie said. “But when it gets to a point when it becomes disrespectful, I feel you should just squash it and you know just don’t deal with it. I am really upset with Bounty Killer to follow up with Foota Hype and Matterhorn with every picture you comment and retweet and send it. You’re a big man, you’re the warlard, the general of dancehall, so you don’t need to follow up no little man my lord.”

Beenie Man also spoke about how Bounty Killer helped both Foota Hype and Tony Matterhorn becomes the big names in the disc jockey business that they are today.
