Ninja Man brands Beenie Man a thief and hypocrite following HOT 97 interview

Ninja Man 2014Add legendary deejay, Ninja Man to the growing list of industry players voicing their displeasure with Beenie Man after comments his fellow deejay made during a recent interview with American radio station, HOT 97 in which he made strong comments regarding the state of Dancehall.

In said interview, Beenie told the American hip-hop station that he didn’t feel artists such as Cham and Mr. Vegas were consistent enough, while suggesting Sean Paul needs to ‘come back to the roots’ more often. He also called out former collaborator, Elephant Man, saying, “I haven’t seen Elephant Man for like two years now, like seriously….Dancehall is not broken, some of the artistes are broken. The followers are here, I am still here, and I am still putting out hit songs,” leading to a war of words between the two deejayslast week.

According to reports WednesdayNinja Man has been very displeased with Beenie’s comments, deciding to let loose in a radio interview earlier this week, in which he issued a stark response to the self-professed King of the Dancehall’s remarks.

“Beenie Man is not here before Ninja Man, he is not here before Daddy Roy and Josey Wales, so who is Beenie Man fi say him a hold up dancehall? Him see dancehall a drop dung? Beenie Man is a total thief,” he said. “Him is mi friend and mi nah keep no secret fi dem because mi nuh eat a nobody yard and mi nuh scrape nobody burn pan. Him is a thief. Him thief weh di ‘Doctor’ from Early B, him go back and tief the King from Yellow Man, him tief weh di girls from Shabba inna dancehall, and now him want come tief dancehall fi himself? Him too greedy.”

The ‘Don Gorgon’ accused Beenie Man of being a ‘hypocrite’ for not paying homage to those who came before him and allowed him the platform he has performed along for the past two decades.

“A Ninja Man a yuh boss,” Ninja said. “I am the one that you idolise and grow up and study and when you do sumn fi mek it hurt me, it hurt me. Stop gwaan like a you run dancehall. Yuh nuh run no dancehall. You is the artiste weh get the most boo inna dancehall.”

Ninja Man even issued a challenge to Beenie Man should he want to take the issue to wax, saying, “mi resign from war but if yuh nuh like wah mi say and can defend it lyrically, face me any minute, any second, any hour, any time.”

Ninja Man handed November date for murder trial

Ninja Man 2014After Dancehall superstar, Vybz Kartel was convicted of murder and subsequently sentenced to life in prison, another legend of the genre will have to wait several more months before his long-awaited murder trial is finally set in motion.On Monday, Desmond Ballentine, more popularly known as Ninja Man appeared in a Kingston court where he was scheduled to kick off the trial. However, the deejay, through his attorney, K.D. Knight, issued an application to have the case thrown out.

Knight argued that the case against Ninja Man and two co-accused should be dismissed given a breach of the constitutional rights, considering the length of time the case has yet to be tried. That application was soon rejected by the presiding judge, who then issued a November 10 date for the commencement of the trial.

Monday’s court proceedings took place just over five years after the fatal shooting of Richard Johnson in March 2009. The deejay was charged with murder, conspiracy to murder, shooting with intent and illegal possession of a firearm in relation to the incident. Ninja Man’s son, Janiel Ballentine and another man, Dennis Clayton were jointly charged in the incident.

The trial has endured several delays since then, though Ninja Man has been on bail since March 2012 and has since revived his nearly three-decade-long career after joining forces with Downsound Records.
