Vybz Kartel shows off his Christmas gifts which includes a couple pairs of Desert Clarks and a visit from his daughter.
One of Kartel’s biggest singles of his career is his 2009 mega hit “Clarks” and his love for the iconic show brand has not changed despite seeing him rocking Jordans in prison recently. The Worl’Boss posted photos of some of his unique Desert boots on Instagram last week which arrived at GP just in time for Christmas.
Vybz Kartel laced up his new kicks on Monday for a holiday family visit. His eldest daughter and other members of his family came and visited him at GP. “Adi’Anna n Mommy me choose.. Love my Prinny #1MoreTime,” Kartel wrote on Instagram in the caption of a photo of himself and his daughter. The dancehall star wore all-white for the occasion while rocking a beard. Some of his fans made fun of his struggling afro which stirred up rumors that he is going rasta.
Kartel had a lot of time on his hands yesterday and used it to respond to Alkaline and Tony Matterhorn beef where he trolled the Vendetta deejay for dissing the veteran selector for playing Kartel music at his birthday party in Florida last weekend.
Tony Matterhorn is making it clear that he is not a coward.
The veteran sound system selector was grossly disrespected by young dancehall gunner Alkaline last week Friday at the Vendetta deejay’s birthday bash at Club Euro in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Alka got upset when Matterhorn, who was the designated deejay, started playing Vybz Kartel songs at the party. “Yo a pu**y for that wa yo just do,” he told the disc jockey in front of his face on stage.
Tony Matterhorn fans have been going off on social media with some calling him a coward for letting the “Champion Boy” deejay disrespected him like that on stage in front his face. But in defense of the disc jockey, Alkaline had his goons right there with him and one of them look like he was ready to pop things off right there and then. Matterhorn has since gone on Instagram live to explain why he never retaliate at the time and fortunately he didn’t because things could have ended badly for both sides.
“When you reach my age you try tone down certain things,” TM said. “You understand because remember say unnu know say me is a sick blood**** individual, and you know Alkaline and him friends them can’t diss Matterhorn… It’s all about the music and the music is bigger than any one of us. So me do the better thing and be the bigger man.”
The long and the short of it, Tony Matterhorn is saying he made a conscious decision to de-escalate the situation because if he had retaliated then the headlines would have been much different and fans would’ve looked at him in a bad light for beating up the young dancehall deejay.
“Alkaline just make himself look bad, me no look bad, you make yourself look like you have a problem with Vybz Kartel,” Matterhorn added. He also said that he wasn’t the one who played the Vybz Kartel song and named Dutty Dex as the disc jockey behind the stunt.
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.
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.
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.
