Dancehall artistes Black Ryno and Popcaan have been at odds since Ryno left the Portmore Empire camp and recorded the Gaza diss song Mi Lef in 2010. Popcaan counteracted the song with Dem Sell Wi Out and the two have been silent on the subject since.
However, Ryno has recently recorded a song called Gaza Beating Stick, where he challenges Popcaan to a lyrical battle.
In the song, Ryno sings, ‘When yu si mi yu run like three likkle pig … how badman fi name Popcaan … him a country man from him born, put yu pon a country bus, guh back dung a St Thomas fi guh back guh plant pak choi … when yu si di clang and the click if yu think yu bad flip.’
The WEEKEND STAR contacted Black Ryno and according to the artiste Popcaan threw lyrical jabs at him in a recent song called Nuh Box Pon Jaw where he says, ‘Badman nuh tek box pon jaw … all now some bwoy sey dem bad and cyaah defeat wi doe … mi have a thing wey mi walk wid, tek wey yu three points mek some bwoy haffi play zero.’
According to Ryno, he knows that Popcaan is dissing him because certain things happened in Gaza that Popcaan knows about.
“When I heard the song, mi know sey a me him a talk because a whole heap a thing happen inna Gaza,” he said.
According to Ryno, he heard that people were looking forward to seeing a face-off at Sting and he was not ruling that out.
“If a artiste a style mi, mi wi run een an deal wid it … but mi jus a gwaan watch dem now,” he said.
Ryno says he only answered the song to show that he was no weak fence, because Jamaicans would assume that he was a coward if he didn’t.
The artiste says that at Sting persons can expect the same Black Ryno and if it’s war, then it’s war.
“Wi nuh tek long fi sic, suh if a war a war,” he said.
The WEEKEND STAR made several attempts to get a comment from Popcaan on the matter, but his phones went unanswered. However, sources close to the deejay said that he was busy at a video shoot.
Black Ryno’s song Gaza Beating Stick has not yet been officially released, and was was produced by Mark Myrie, the son of reggae/dancehall icon Buju Banton.
