Bounty Killer drops new single inspired by ‘The Harder They Come’

Bounty Killer HarderNow celebrating its 40th anniversary,  The Harder They Come has inspired countless reggae music love-ins on college campuses and among Jamaicans around the world.  Now the iconic movie can add a dancehall rhythm to its list of tributes, as One Jam Music releases Bounty Killer’s blazing  Harder – a devastating response to all his challengers, and the teaser to One Jam’s latest production, the Harder Than Hard album slated for release in early 2014.

Harder Than Hard is the brainchild and labor of love of One Jam Music, a boutique reggae music label. The project was inspired by the classic 1972 Jimmy Cliff film written and directed by Perry Henzell and co-written by Trevor D. Rhone. Considered a cult classic, The Harder They Come was the first film made in Jamaica shortly after independence, one of the most successful independent films of all time and “the soundtrack album has joined Marley’s catalog as reggae’s cornerstones” (SF Chronicle).

Continuing the firsts, Harder Than Hard will be the first riddim-driven album that will use samples and themes from one movie as the basis for all the songs on the compilation. The album, slated for release in early 2014, will feature a star-studded cast of established and rising dancehall and reggae artists and will lead off with the single Harder from Grammy nominated international star Bounty Killer.

On the eve of “Sting” 2013, dubbed “The greatest dancehall show on earth,” the dancehall world has been eagerly awaiting a response from Bounty Killer to challenges and insults hurled at him in recent months from Mr. Vegas, Anthony B, and most recently Mavado. The Warlord has finally responded, and it is with devastating impact. The musical response Harder, which conjures up memories of a favorite dancehall era when lyrical battles were en vogue and reached their highpoint at Sting, draws dialog samples from The Harder They Come, and in true Killer style delivers a verbal lashing to his challengers.

While the single for Harder will be available on all major digital outlets served by digital giants 21st Hapilos Digital, the 40-year legacy and enduring potency of The Harder They Come is being celebrated by the film’s owners, International Films Limited (IFM) and their distribution partners. IFM, Syndctd Entertainment and Xenon Pictures will digitally release the film on iTunes and through VHX in late December. A blu-ray is set for Spring 2014 and various Harder They Come theatrical screenings / reggae music parties will roll out through 2014 on college campuses and with Jamaican diaspora groups and roots reggae groups in Boston, Brooklyn, Toronto and all over the globe.

Updated 7-24 – Official Video : Busta Rhymes Ft. Nicki Minaj – Twerk It

Updated 7/24 – release of the official Video – Busta Rhymes Ft. Nicki Minaj – Twerk It

Behind the Scenes Video || Nicki Minaj and Busta Rhymes do new song entirely in Jamaican patois

Updated 6/20 – Behind The Scenes: “TWERK IT” by Busta Rhymes (ft. Nicki Minaj)


Busta Rhymes and Nicki MinajInternationally acclaimed rappers, Nicki Minaj and Busta Rhymes have combined their Caribbean roots to create a new single recorded entirely in Jamaican patois.

The curvaceous Trinidadian-American rapper and Jamaican-born hip-hop veteran recently recorded a remix to Busta Rhymes’ hit single, Twerk It, voicing the song in their best Jamaican dialect. The Pharrell Williams produced remix was unveiled on Thursday, featuring lyrics from that paid tribute to Jamaica’s Dancehall elite, including Beenie Man, Bounty Killer and Vybz Kartel.

“Dutty gal, when ya see mi and what yu fi do/ Bow down, big chain and it heavy too,” Minaj sings while she and Rhymes sing, “Come here gyal wey yu a duh? What a gwaan? Dun wid dat, Dutty Wine … Tony Matterhorn … Kartel, Beenie Man, Bounty Killer too roll di weed buss a dutch all Rizla too.”


Though in the past, many American entertainers have used Dancehall samples, verses and Jamaican sayings in their music, this is the first time two American rappers have ever done a song entirely in Jamaican patois

Neither Busta Rhymes nor Nicki Minaj are strangers to implement Dancehall themes in their music. Busta Rhymes has used dialect in many of his songs and scored noteworthy collaborations, such as his chart-topping hit, Make It Clap (feat. Spliff Star and Sean Paul) as well as Wine and Go Down, alongside Vybz Kartel.

Minaj has long expressed her affection for Jamaican music as well, featuring on the remix for Gyptian’s hit song, Hold Yuh in 2010 and featured on French Montana’s recent single, Freaks, which samples the Murder She Wrote rhythm created by Sly and Robbie. She was also the headline international act at the 2011 edition of Reggae Sumfest.

Former Alliance First Lady, Bridgez leaves group

Bounty Killer and BridgezPopular Dancehall artist and the former first lady of Bounty Killer’s Alliance crew, Bridgez has announced her decision to leave the group after four years with them.

The singjay, whose real name is Bridgett Roache confirmed Wednesday that she has cut all ties with Alliance and is now looking for a new management team. According to the Winning Whine singer, this is strictly a business decision aimed at taking her career to a higher level.

“I don’t believe in titles,” she said in a statement. “If you’re not making an impact to live up to it; so all these titles I got didn’t mean much to me. It felt like just talk, an excuse to not put in the real work a manager is to be doing. I will never be ungrateful for the experience I gained while I was in Alliance but the time has come for me to move on. I’m serious about my career and I have spent almost 4 years with this camp however I need a management team that knows how to manage a female artist.”

She continued, “I am a positive person and I don’t dwell on negative things so I won’t spend my time bashing my former manager. Right now I am focused on getting a better management team, one that can guide my career to success.”

After releasing a number of singles including On Fire and Take Your Breath Away, Bridgez joined forces with Bounty Killer for her hit, Rollout, which helped solidify her place in Bounty’ camp. She later joined the Alliance’s Next Generation camp, releasing singles such as No Any Man and Han Up Deh and, after disassociating herself from the A.N.G brand, dropped songs such as Take Your Time (featuring Big Wayne) and All Dem a Talk.

Bridgez promises her fans she will release new material during the summer.

“Over the last couple of months I’ve been very busy in the studios working with various producers like Salim and Chris of Track House Records, ZJ Bruce Lee, and Truckback and couple others and I released a hot new track last month named Winning Wine on Trackhouse’s Pandemonium Riddim. I’ve also been busy doing my B.Sc in Business Administration so I took a little break from releasing anything after Take Your Time but I will be giving my fans a lot of new material for the summer.”

Bounty Killer stirs excitement, controversy at ‘Behind The Screen’

Bounty KillerTypically when watching a Bounty Killer performance, you can expect lots of energy, ferocity and a few rants here and there and patrons at Usain Bolt’s Tracks and Records got just that at Tuesday night’s Behind The Screen series in Kingston.

The self-professed ‘War Lord’ was in a militant mood at Constant Spring’s Marketplace, taking aim at homosexuals, politicians and even the sound engineers. After being introduced to the stage by fellow Dancehall legend, Shaggy and Trinidadian soca star, Machel Montano, Bounty wasted no time in re-acquainting fans with his classics such as Sufferer, Cellular Phone and Rivers of Babylon.

But just as his set was getting warmed up, technical difficulties cooled the performance momentum as his microphone and monitors on stage weren’t working properly. Though Bounty continued to perform, the technical glitches persisted and the Alliance leader walked off in a rage.

Bounty Killer overcomes boos, sand-throwing incident at beach event

Bounty KillerThough iconic Dancehall superstar, Bounty Killer has long indicated his desire not to clash ‘Gaza’ deejay Tommy Lee Sparta anytime soon, some of Tommy Lee’s fans apparently tried to answer some of the Grung Gaad’s taunts on his behalf.

Two weeks ago, the internet world went abuzz following video showing Tommy Lee Sparta being booed while performing at the CHUG IT beach party in Portmore, St. Catherine. Despite being well-received by the crowd for a majority of his set, Lee got an ear full from patrons when making disparaging remarks about Bounty Killer after singing his hit track, P**** Mechanic. Then Tommy Lee Sparta, who later denied the incident even took place, received another chorus of boos while performing at Rum Punch later that weekend for once again speaking about Bounty, alleging that the Alliance leader orchestrated a plot to have fans turn against him at the show.

This past weekend, Bounty Killer took the stage at Chug It alongside fellow Alliance deejays Bling Dawg, Iyara and a host of others. Just moments after taking to the stage and performing Badman Kill Fi Fun, Bounty was forced to defend himself after some fans threw sand at the deejay, hurling boos in his direction in an apparent reprisal for the Tommy Lee Sparta incident two weekends prior.

Bounty Killer says no to STING

Any hope that Dancehall superstar, Bounty Killer will perform at STING 2012 seems all but dashed after the ‘War Lord’ confirmed his intention to skip the popular stage show.

The Alliance leader, who initially was on the STING lineup, declared that he would not perform at STING following ‘disrespectful’ comments made by the show’s lead promoter, Isaiah Laing in an interview, implying that ‘Gaza’ deejay and current rival,Tommy Lee Sparta had a good chance of defeating him in a clash.

Though speculation within Dancehall circles was rife that Bounty Killer was bluffing, the ‘Grung Gaad’ confirmed during a radio interview on Wednesday that he was serious. The iconic entertainer stated that his STING deposit was returned a week and half ago and the contract originally signed to do the show is now null and void.

Bounty Killer, Tommy Lee and Mavado to headline STING 2012

Though the two have publicly denied that a possible lyrical clash could happen, Dancehall superstars, Bounty Killer and Tommy Lee could indeed butt heads at the genre’s biggest stage show as both have been confirmed for STING 2012.

Having engaged in a lyrical feud over the last month, Bounty Killer and Tommy Lee will headline the 29th edition of STING and could possibly set the stage for Alliance leader and Gaza artiste to settle their ongoing differences. Tommy Lee recently released his track, Goat Head, which lyrically lambasted Bounty Killer after comments the ‘War Lord’ made about him and his ‘Sparta’ persona. Last week, Bounty Killer retaliated with the track, Nyammy Lee which upped the ante in the battle.

After initially insisting that he would never clash Bounty Killer out of respect for the legendary entertainer, Tommy Lee has now hinted that if provoked, he will challenge the ‘Grung Gaad’ at STING 2012.

Mavado back in Jamaica, reportedly the subject of a ‘hit’

Internationally-acclaimed Dancehall superstar, Mavado has finally made his long-awaited return to Jamaica, but despite being back home, he’s making sure to watch his back at every turn.

According to reports, Mavado may be the subject of a ‘hit’ given his return to the island and has been beefing up his security detail and entourage to ensure his safety at all costs. This after the prominent singjay was reportedly the intended target during a shooting outside Bounty Killer’s birthday party at the QUAD nightclub in Kingston, which left his close friend, Conroy ‘Connie’ Edwards shot and eventually killed. Soon thereafter, Mavado revealed in an interview that the bullet which ended up killing ‘Collie’ was indeed meant for him while hinting that undercover police officers may have been in on the plot.

Last summer, following the re-acquiring of his United States visa and his subsequent deal with DJ Khaled’s We The Best Music Group, Mavado reportedly relocated to the U.S. where he’s since toured and strengthened his international appeal with several collaborations featuring Akon (Survivor), Ace Hood (Emergency) and the aforementioned DJ Khaled (Suicidal Thoughts).

Busy Signal’s manager speaks out on the deejay’s prison stay, future in music

With embattled Dancehall/Reggae superstar, Busy Signal just under two months away from regaining his freedom, the entertainer’s esteemed manager has illustrated a very thought-provoking picture of his client’s prison experience.

Busy Signal was slapped a six month sentence last week Friday for absconding bail in relation to a 2002 drug case in the American state of Minnesota. However, given that the Reggae Music Again singer had already served time in Jamaica and the United States in relation to the matter, presiding judge, Donovan W. Frank ruled that Busy Signal would be released on November 21 and will subsequently be given 45 days to leave the North American country.

But before Busy can one again return to his musical exploits, the internationally acclaimed singjay will be focused on regaining full health after a rigorous stay at the Sherbourne County Jail in Minnesota. In an interview with Irish and Chin Inc. radio outlet, Sound Chat Radio, Busy’s manager, Shane Brown painted a grim picture of his client’s life behind bars, revealing that the entertainer would only be fed fish once a week, would never see sunlight and has lost considerable weight and energy while in jail.

“Busy has lost quite a bit of weight…closer to 12-15 pounds. He’s very weak and he’s not eating right ‘cause Busy just prefer to hol’ it and eat some crackers and some juice fi all a week straight,” he said.

Vybz Kartel wants Tommy Lee to avoid clash with Bounty Killer

With the ongoing tension between Alliance leader, Bounty Killer and Gaza artiste, Tommy Lee seemingly on the verge of boiling over, the latter artiste’s mentor has stepped in to try and quell the beef.

Despite being incarcerated on murder and conspiracy charges, Dancehall superstar, Vybz Kartel has reportedly reached out to Tommy Lee from jail, urging the Some Bwoy deejay not to clash his former mentor turned rival, Bounty Killer. This, after a number of verbal exchanges between Bounty Killer and Tommy Lee, ignited by Killer’s comments that artistes should stop making demonic references in their songs while publicizing a link that ties in ‘Sparta’ (Tommy Lee’s persona) with homosexuality.

After initially stating that he would not diss Bounty Killer, Tommy Lee recorded a new track, Goat Head that lyrically lambasted the ‘War Lord,’ while making reference to some of the Alliance founder’s past transgressions.

Bounty Killer, Tommy Lee war of words heats up

Just last week, it seemed like any possibility of a lyrical tussle between Alliance leader, Bounty Killer and ‘Gaza’ artiste Tommy Lee would subside given the apparent expressions of respect they expressed towards each other. However, after the latter entertainer’s latest taunts, Dancehall could be witnessing the next big clash within its circles.

On Saturday, Tommy Lee launched a scathing attack on Bounty Killer on a new track entitled Goat Head for which a video emerged on Monday, featuring an image of a goat with sunglasses used to mirror the legendary artiste’s face. Additionally, Lee calls out the ‘War Lord’ on a number of issues, including his claims that the ‘Sparta’ concept has ties to homosexuality while highlighting some of Bounty Killer’s legal troubles.

Upon hearing Goat Head, Alliance Next Generation artiste, Iyara shot back at the prominent ‘Gaza’ deejay with Murda Dem which also dissed UIM Records producer, Anju Blaxx.

Bounty Killer himself replied on Twitter with a clever comeback to Tommy Lee’s diss track, stating “GrungGaadZilla a.k.a Jesus Price is officially the dancehall G.O.A.T the Greatest of All Time,” while also referring to the Psycho deejay as ‘Tommy Flee’ and ‘Nyammy Lee.’

Additionally, Bounty Killer, who’s received a lot of support and flack for his stance, issued a stern warning to Jamaica about the direction that its music and society are going, comparing them to Haiti, who’s endured its share of natural disasters the last two years.

“Jamaica tuned like Haiti. Worshiping voodoo and demons, God forbid but unuh see what happened to Haiti in recent times that unuh want reach Jamaicans too?” he asked.

Bounty Killer insisted last week that he would not clash Tommy Lee at STING 2012 while releasing a new track featuring Kiprich and Alliance Next Generation protégé, Calado on the thought-provoking, War Fi God. However, after Tommy Lee’s lyrical attack, many wonder whether or not the ‘Gaza’ vs. Alliance battle will re-emerge as a result of these recent developments.

Tommy Lee responds to criticism from Bounty Killer, Dancehall fraternity

Criticism continues to pour in against prominent Dancehall entertainer, Tommy Lee. However, the popular ‘Gaza’ artiste refuses to enter into a shouting match with his detractors, particularly Bounty Killer.

Over the last few days, Bounty Killer took to social media outlet, Twitter to voice his frustrations against Tommy Lee and other Dancehall artistes who use demonic lyrics in their songs. The Alliance leader first tweeted a link which tied in the ‘Sparta’ concept to homosexuality, sparking more controversy and speculation regarding Tommy Lee’s ‘Gaza Sparta’ persona. Then the legendary Dancehall superstar issued a damning statement reprimanding Tommy Lee and other artistes who reference demonic spirits in their music.

In part the statement read, “Tired a dem now yow every man know a me say youths fi run the place, but nuh come chat nuh f****y bout freak and devil or demon, ago kill off some a dem, so when a man ago sing certain things him nuh think say nobody was gonna have a problem wid him argument dem, a when since u can just come inna dancehall and a bring een demon ppl freely so? how long we have we dancehall nice and pure mad mi mad to bloodc****, some a dem too brite and no big man inna dancehall naah stand up and tell dem say dat nuh accepted, ppl mi fight fi dancehall wid mi life and say f**k career dem naah mash it up enuh!”

Bounty Killer calls out Tommy Lee

Highly regarded Dancehall legend, Bounty Killer doesn’t seem to be one to jumpon the ever-growing Tommy Lee bandwagon after the Alliance leader called out the popular Gaza artiste regarding his persona and lyrical content.

Tommy Lee rose to prominence due to his unique, intimidating sound as well as him self-proclaimed ‘gothic’ type of Dancehall in which he sometimes wears masks in his music videos. However, that ‘dark’ form of Dancehall has rubbed many industry players the wrong way, including Bounty Killer, who tweeted out a link making reference to the ‘Sparta’ persona that Tommy Lee sports.

“All a who a call dem self “SPARTA” Click this Rassc**** http://sexandhistory.blogspot.com/2008/06/sparta-experiment-in-state-fostered.html … !! Tell Mi If Unu A “SPARTA” Again zeen?” Bounty Killer tweeted, showing a link that links the ‘Sparta’ concept to homosexuality.

Bounty Killer then reportedly issued a statement, through Alliance Next Generation manager, Cross Cris, explaining his reservations against Tommy Lee and other artistes who sing similar lyrics.

Payday Music Presents Dancehall Legends Vol 1

If the term legend, is defined “as a non-historical story handed down by tradition from earlier times and popularly accepted” and Dancehall as “a genre of Jamaican popular music, a style of dance-oriented Reggae” than the art form that is known as Dancehall, which lives through Reggae, spins the livelihood tales of Jamaican culture is most definitely a legend.

 

Then infusing with the DJs and Singjays of present, names like Bounty Killer, Buju Banton, Mavado, Vybz Kartel and Sizzla, we create storytellers. Who embed in generations old, new, and yet to come cultural sagas to be enjoyed for years to come creating dancehall legends.

 

On July 10th, Payday Music Group presents “Dancehall Legends Vol 1” a compilation of work by Grammy award winning producer, Austin “Payday” Green spanning over the last 8 yrs.  This audio collection is a showcase of some of dancehall’s greatest artist that Austin has the opportunity to produce for.

 

Austin (better known as “Payday” or “Kevin”) Green started his career in music over 14 years ago. With beginnings at Gargamel Studios, work at England’s Jet Star, as well as all the years in between producing, engineering, crafting and creating, Austin Green has contributed greatly to Reggae music. Most recently Austin and the Payday team release “Play Your Part” the official theme song for HelpJA Children initiative.

 

As “Dancehall Legends” prepares to release, Austin remarks that it was “exciting” going through years of music, choosing selections for the 1st volume, stating, “I’ve produced a lot of good music over the years, I realize my catalogue is growing. I just want to showcase some of the work”. The compilation will have eleven tracks, nine previously released with two exciting new exclusives. Some of the singles featured will be “Informa” Mavado, “Run Dem Mouth” Sizzla, “When Yuh Hold Dem” Vybz Kartel, and “Tek It To The Heights” Capleton.

 

The exclusives tracks; however, come from Bounty Killer and Buju Banton. The two new songs “Dem A Trace” from Bounty Killer and “Pressure Dem” from Buju Banton, are currently un-released and will be available only on “Dancehall Legends”.  As curiosity might strike to why Payday waited to release these singles, Austin offers this response, I don’t like to rush music. When he (Buju) was incarcerated, people tried to rush and put out what music they had, I don’t do music like that, no bandwagon thing.  It just felt like the time is right to release it. As for the Bounty single, it’s a track we revisited during the “Play Your Part” recording. It’s included on the compilation versus a regular release as to not bring “hype” and “questioning” to the song title “Dem A Trace”.

 

With that said, let the stories be told and the legends unfold, as Payday Music presents “Dancehall Legends Vol 1” on July 10. The compilation will be available on all digital outlets.

For the premieres of “Dem A Trace” and “Pressure Dem” and more information follow@PaydayMusic. Visit PaydayMusicGroup.com for a complete musical catalog

Dancehall acts upset with genre’s exclusion from Jamaica 50 concert

There’s a growing uproar within the Dancehall community following confirmation that no artiste representing the popular Jamaican genre will be represented at an upcoming Jamaica 50 concert in England.

One of the major events to take place in honor of Jamaica’s 50th anniversary of events will be the Respect Jamaica 50th concert series, scheduled to take place concurrently with the 2012 Olympics in London. The series, conceptualized via AEG Live, runs from July 25-August 6 at the O2 Arena in London and features 50 Jamaica artistes, dub poets and bands.

However, one notable absence from the lineup is that of Dancehall as no artistes representing the prominent genre will feature on the Respect Jamaica 50th bill. This was confirmed during a recent interview on TVJ’s Entertainment Report by AEG Live president, Rob Hailett, who insisted that Dancehall music doesn’t necessarily work in every environment.

“I’m very pleased to see Reggae coming back with the reaffirmation of Morgan Heritage, young bands like Raging Fyah. I think it’s a good thing for the music globally because Dancehall doesn’t really work everywhere. I, personally, love it, but it’s not the kind of music that is consumer-friendly as a Raging Fyah who, to me, follow in the footsteps of Bob Marley,” Hailett said.

Bounty Killer claims Beenie Man apologized for money

Internationally acclaimed Dancehall superstar, Bounty Killer won’t let his long-time rival, Beenie Man live down his decision to issue a recent video statement in which he tried to bury the hatchet with gay and lesbian critics who have long bashed his lyrical content.

Beenie Man responded to recent comments from Bounty Killer criticizing his perceived apology while implying that he sold out his beliefs by making this move. The self-professed King of the Dancehall steadfastly denied apologizing to the homosexual community, insisting that his purpose for the video statement was to ask gay, lesbian critics to stop holding lyrics from his younger years against him. Additionally, Beenie Man took shots at the Alliance leader, claiming that Bounty Killer should have been talking about a performance in Amsterdam in which he claims fans left before the self-proclaimed War Lord took the stage.

However, Bounty Killer refuses to back down; taking to Twitter to refute claims by Beenie Man that Jamaican artistes will see an increase in overseas shows, in part, because of his video statement.

According to Bounty Killer, he would not have done the same thing if put in such a position and that Dancehall music has helped boost Jamaica’s stance on homosexuality; intimating that artistes should not back down from said stance regardless of the possible financial implications.

Beenie Man denies apologizing to homosexuals, fellow artistes react to video

The Jamaican music community has been buzzing since the release of a video statement by Dancehall legend, Beenie Man last week in which he confirmed his stance regarding gay and lesbian critics who’ve long hounded him throughout his career with regards to lyrical content.

Last week Wednesday, the self-professed King of the Dancehall unveiled a YouTube video via the Rototom Sunsplash European Reggae Festival’s official page in which he insisted that he had no personal issues with homosexuals and respected all human beings. He also urged gay and lesbian critics to stop attacking him for songs he did two decades ago which contained controversial lyrical content addressing the issue of homosexuality.

Beenie’s apparent apology to homosexuals drew the eyre of his long-time rival, Bounty Killer who tweeted several statements criticizing the move, one of which read, “Your view is your view, everyone have the right to their opinion. Giving an apology simple mean you stoop to their level and have second thoughts of your opinion, so simply you never believe in your opinion from first.”

STING promoter not satisfied with crowd turnout, explains superstar absences

The lead promoter for the recently concluded STING 2011 stage show feels that the popular Dancehall event lacked support for the second year running.

The 28th edition of STING took place at Jamworld in Portmore, St. Catherine on Monday night. Looking to make up for a lacklustre 2010 show, this year’s staging of STING, tagged with the Rumours of War theme, promised several clashes and superstars galore that fans demanded after last year’s event shifted from its usual nature.

However, considering the notable absences of prominent Dancehall singjays such as Mavado and I-Octane, STING’s lead promoter, Isaiah Laing expressed his dissatisfaction with the crowd turnout for his show during a radio interview in Wednesday.

“We neva have dat big pull dis year still, even though we had clashes. Maybe those clashes were not clashes what people really wanted to see or maybe because of the elections vibes…or people generally don’t have funds this year,” Laing implied.

Meanwhile, Laing offered explanations as to why Mavado and I-Octane were no-shows at the event. According to Laing, Mavado did not show up to the Jamworld venue for his scheduled performance at around 1:45 a.m.; thus prompting STING promoters to move up the clash between Kiprich and Merciless. Once the clashes started, Laing intimated that Mavado opted not to perform at the show but the self-professed “Gully Gaad” promised to make this up to STING fans.

As for I-Octane, Laing refused to detail the root of the disagreement between himself and the internationally-acclaimed singjay; claiming that a misunderstanding occurred between them. According to Laing, the two will meet in the near future to settle their differences.

Established Dancehall superstar, Beenie Man, who STING sponsors said would clash long-time rival, Bounty Killer during the show, arrived at the event following his performance at an event in Montserrat. However, Laing intimated that fans of the self-professed “King of the Dancehall” discouraged him from engaging in a lyrical battle with the “War Lord.”

“Beenie Man was there, almost entered (the) stage and his fans discouraged him from entering…because they thought that Bounty Killer was in a very mean mood out there and that he wouldn’t be able to handle Bounty…it just never happen,” he said.

Beenie Man clashed Bounty Killer at the Diamond Splash event in Negril; a lyrical battle that many fans and industry players deemed the “Grung Gaad” the clear cut winner.

Bounty Killer wants to clash Beenie Man for free, still has love for Kartel

Dancehall superstar, Bounty Killer has spoken out about his two biggest rivals within the industry; rubbishing claims from one while showing concern for another.

Beenie Man gave an interview earlier on the show, telling Winford Williams that he and Bounty Killer had a deal to stage an event at the Ewarton Sports Complex in St. Catherine on New Year’s Eve after they both agreed not to perform at STING 2011.

However, Bounty Killer denied claims that an agreement was ever reached; insisting that Beenie Man should have addressed STING promoter, Isaiah Laing’s disparaging comments about them in a stronger fashion. Additionally, he implied that Beenie Man is running from a potential confrontation at Jamworld.

Beenie Man claims Bounty Killer sabotaged him, defends not performing at STING

Internationally-acclaimed Dancehall superstar, Beenie Man has given a more detailed explanation of why he won’t perform at STING 2011; blaming the show promoter as well as his greatest rival for not appearing this time around.

The Grammy-winning Dancehall star gave an interview on CVM’s OnStage on Saturday night; explaining his reasoning for declining an invitation to perform at the 28th edition of STING. Nearly two weeks ago, Beenie revealed that he would not grace the Jamworld stage in Portmore, St. Catherine due to comments STING promoter, Isaiah Laing made during a recent television interview. Additionally, Beenie said that he was surprised that Bounty Killer accused him of running from a potential clash at STING despite the two making plans to restore the show’s aura after a disappointing 2010 edition.

Speaking from Spain, where’s he’s on a European tour, Beenie Man intimated that he decided not to perform at STING 2011 from last year given how Laing continued to discredit he and other prominent artistes who made the event popular. According to Beenie, he’s never received the respect he deserved from Laing for building up the show.

STING promoter claims Beenie Man will show, says Kartel wanted Aidonia clash

The head organizer of the popular Dancehall stage show, STING, has high hopes for his product this time around; bringing it back to basics.

Isaiah Laing, head of Supreme Promotions, gave an interview on CVMTV’s OnStage this past Saturday where he outlined the events that will take place at STING 2011, scheduled to take place on December 26. The 28th edition of STING features a “Rumours of War” theme where several Dancehall acts are scheduled to engage in lyrical clashes. This marks a stark contrast from STING 2010 when no clashes were set and internationally-acclaimed Dancehall artistes, Mavado and Vybz Kartel were notable absentees; triggering the lowest turnout in the show’s history.

Laing conceded that not having Kartel and Mavado at STING last year hurt his product while claiming that the show’s change from its clash nature caused it to lose some credibility. However, Laing intimated that several artistes approached him to engage in clashes as an effort to revive the show’s atmosphere.
