While Alkaline and Vybz Kartel fights over the dancehall “donship” title, Popcaan is choosing his side and natural he sided with the Gazanation don. The Unruly Boss took some shots at his dancehall rival over the weekend referring to him as a “wanna be don.” “So f***ing unruly Nuh Likkle wanna be don can’t fool me #outside,” Poppy wrote.
In case you were off the grid for a good minute, last week Alkaline and Vybz Kartel went buck heads while proclaiming themselves to be the don of dancehall. So Beenie Man already takes the king title and Bounty Killer takes the general title. Now it’s all about the “one don.” Kartel released a new single “Don’t Come Back” where he not only rip his baby mama but also proclaim himself as the don. “One don one don that’s me / Kartel, Worl’ Boss or Teach / Run street whether black or bleach,” he rhymes.
It didn’t take long after the song’s release for Alkaline to post on IG calling himself “1 Don.” Now it’s Popcaan’s turn to say something, and while he didn’t bestow the title onto himself, he basically said Vybz Kartel is the true don, not surprisingly.
The veteran selector and the dancehall legend have been beefing for quite some time now but in recent months the feud has reached an all-time high. Now Tony Matterhorn is saying that Bounty Killer crossed the line when he brought his kids into their feud. The disc jockey went a step further to insinuate that the Warlord has a gay son and a feud between himself and that son is what lead to the death of his mother Ms Ivy.
These claims will surely infuriate Bounty Killer who deeply loves his late mother. “Killer has a son name Qua who is gay,’ Matterhorn said. “And a that same son deh… Killer a you and that same son kill off Ms. Ivy, the war thats going on between you and that son don’t forget that and that lady was a lovely lady and it’s you and that son end that lady’s life and that is why you’re suppressing your demons.”
Tony Matterhorn even went after Bounty Killer son Major Mijah who is an aspiring artist claiming that he is “fruity.” He even told his fans on Instagram Live that Killer has herpes among a number of other things. Watch the video below.
The 2001 track is arguably Bounty Killer’s biggest hit to date with massive commercial success. The single peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and reached the top ten in several countries around the world. But the nude scene played by Adrian Young during a Bounty Killer’s line that says “The way you rock your hips, you know that it amaze me” drove a wedge between the dancehall legend and the pop group.
The scene portrayed Bounty Killer as gay and being a gangster dancehall artist, that didn’t sit well with him. Killer canceled all further performances with the band and get them loose. Turns out that he is still very upset about it. During an interview with Quizz & Macedon last weekend, he opened up about how angry he was when he first saw the video.
“When I saw that naked man in the video I wanted to kill No Doubt literally,” Bounty said. “It caused a big problem, it caused publishing problems, it caused relationship problems, everything broke down because that sh*t wasn’t in the video. It was a two-day shoot in California and Mike Myers shoot the f***ing video and no naked guy was in it, a naked guy has nothing to do with the storyline of the f***ing song. So when I saw it I told them take that sh*t out. Because that sh*t is going to cause me problems in my culture.”
Bounty Killer said that No Doubt agreed to remove Adrian Young young naked scene where he was on gymnastics rings and they agreed but then still released the video with that scene. Killer said his relationship with No Doubt instantly broke down and that resulted in him not performing with the band at the American Music Awards that year.
The two dancehall legends have collaborated in the past on several singles, and Kartel even wrote a few hits for Bounty Killer in the early 2000s. But a bitter fallout between The Teacher and The Alliance put an end to their relationship in 2005. Seems they are both putting their differences aside and are making music again. The two deejays announced on Instagram over the weekend that they are dropping a new joint.
“[Bounty Killer] My daddy weh dem a go do when the #killakartelkollab drop?” Vybz Kartel wrote on IG. Killer responded saying, [Vybz Kartel] Beta dem just go find some weh go lidung or drop dung b4 it drop because when it drop nutn naah git up back dawg.”
Killer also said the collaboration will bring back some memories from their all-black Alliance days. Sources inside the Gaza told Dancehall HipHop that Bounty Killer recently paid Vybz Kartel a visit in prison and the two had a long conversation about their Alliance days and what’s happening in dancehall currently. They didn’t release the title of the single, but it will arrive sometime this week.
Vybz Kartel also posted a throwback photo of himself, Wayne Marshall, and Bounty Killer while clapping back at some recent reports about his weight. “Me , big Breda and DADDY!!! #AllianceDays …BTW dem say me get skinny. Apart from 2014 family day pic at horizon,when was VybzKartel ever fat? Smh #AllianceToGaza,” he wrote.
