The stage has apparently been set for yet another lyrical warfare between deejays Bounty Killer and Beenie Man.
The popular artistes are now trading lyrical ‘disses’ with a series of songs aimed at each other.
The dancehall icons who have been in a rift since the 90s shared a period of peace for sometime, even performing together at several events including a Guinness concert at the National Stadium last year.
However, the peaceful times seemed to have ended and songs such as Bounty Killers Ready Fi Dem,
and Who Tell Him Dweet along with Beenie’s Naah Talk Too Long and Da Idiot Song Deh are clear indicators of this.
It is reported that the conflict started when Bounty recorded Ready Fi Dem produced by Board House Records.
“If di one Beenie eva call mi name again yuh si,” the deejay had threatened in that song.
Beenie Man later replied with Nah Talk Too Long in which he called Bounty Killer’s name provokingly.
The two songs got favourable responses on the dancehall scene and the local charts, but was not seen as a lyrical confrontation as the two even performed together after that. However, earlier this month, Bounty Killer released another song, Who Tell Him Dweet.
In the song Bounty Killer says “Beenie, yuh dem sey Peter King touch.Yuh bound fi get flush. Is what yu doing yuh try to compete with seven days lyrics sounding that weak.”
Beenie Man quickly counteracted that effort with Da Idiot Song Deh dissing Bounty Killer and throwing punches at his tax problems.
“I wouldn’t say a word if a me like you, tax man neva tek wey my van like a you, my cash stock and pile mi nuh know bout you,” he sang.
When THE STAR contacted Bounty Killer the deejay stated that he is in a dark mood.
“Warlord nuh business,” he said before further stating that Beenie Man says he took too long to answer his previous diss song and so he was showing him that he can deliver with Run Inna War.
“Beenie said I took four months to answer the first song so I am showing him dat I can be precise. Mi jus did sorry fi him but him guh low blow bout tax man tek mi vehicle, that’s no war lyrics, I am trading bullets and he is trading insults, so I just insult him worse yow,” he said.
THE STAR made attempts to get a comment from Beenie, however, we were told that he was busy recording another counteraction for Bounty’s song.
His publicist Claude Mills, however, said that Beenie Man had expressed that Bounty Killer went too far in his diss towards him and a swift response was needed, one that will be released as soon as this week.
