This yea he scored a number of hits including one of the hottest songs in dancehall this year “InfraRed” with Vybz Kartel. He also lands collaborations with other acts like Bounty Killer and Ishawna, as well as, tour extensively overseas. The single “Roll Clean” is currently available on iTunes/Apple Music and Spotify for streaming.
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.
While Alkaline and Vybz Kartel fights over the dancehall “donship” title, Popcaan is choosing his side and natural he sided with the Gazanation don. The Unruly Boss took some shots at his dancehall rival over the weekend referring to him as a “wanna be don.” “So f***ing unruly Nuh Likkle wanna be don can’t fool me #outside,” Poppy wrote.
In case you were off the grid for a good minute, last week Alkaline and Vybz Kartel went buck heads while proclaiming themselves to be the don of dancehall. So Beenie Man already takes the king title and Bounty Killer takes the general title. Now it’s all about the “one don.” Kartel released a new single “Don’t Come Back” where he not only rip his baby mama but also proclaim himself as the don. “One don one don that’s me / Kartel, Worl’ Boss or Teach / Run street whether black or bleach,” he rhymes.
It didn’t take long after the song’s release for Alkaline to post on IG calling himself “1 Don.” Now it’s Popcaan’s turn to say something, and while he didn’t bestow the title onto himself, he basically said Vybz Kartel is the true don, not surprisingly.
Tony Matterhorn is going in on Bounty Killer once again and this time he is alleging that Bounty Killer is hiding one of his sons who is gay.
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.
Two decades later and Bounty Killer is still cross, angry and miserable about No Doubt putting a naked man in their “Hey Baby” music video.
The 2001 track is arguably Bounty Killer’s biggest hit to date with massive commercial success. The single peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and reached the top ten in several countries around the world. But the nude scene played by Adrian Young during a Bounty Killer’s line that says “The way you rock your hips, you know that it amaze me” drove a wedge between the dancehall legend and the pop group.
The scene portrayed Bounty Killer as gay and being a gangster dancehall artist, that didn’t sit well with him. Killer canceled all further performances with the band and get them loose. Turns out that he is still very upset about it. During an interview with Quizz & Macedon last weekend, he opened up about how angry he was when he first saw the video.
“When I saw that naked man in the video I wanted to kill No Doubt literally,” Bounty said. “It caused a big problem, it caused publishing problems, it caused relationship problems, everything broke down because that sh*t wasn’t in the video. It was a two-day shoot in California and Mike Myers shoot the f***ing video and no naked guy was in it, a naked guy has nothing to do with the storyline of the f***ing song. So when I saw it I told them take that sh*t out. Because that sh*t is going to cause me problems in my culture.”
Bounty Killer said that No Doubt agreed to remove Adrian Young young naked scene where he was on gymnastics rings and they agreed but then still released the video with that scene. Killer said his relationship with No Doubt instantly broke down and that resulted in him not performing with the band at the American Music Awards that year.
The two dancehall legends have collaborated in the past on several singles, and Kartel even wrote a few hits for Bounty Killer in the early 2000s. But a bitter fallout between The Teacher and The Alliance put an end to their relationship in 2005. Seems they are both putting their differences aside and are making music again. The two deejays announced on Instagram over the weekend that they are dropping a new joint.
“[Bounty Killer] My daddy weh dem a go do when the #killakartelkollab drop?” Vybz Kartel wrote on IG. Killer responded saying, [Vybz Kartel] Beta dem just go find some weh go lidung or drop dung b4 it drop because when it drop nutn naah git up back dawg.”
Killer also said the collaboration will bring back some memories from their all-black Alliance days. Sources inside the Gaza told Dancehall HipHop that Bounty Killer recently paid Vybz Kartel a visit in prison and the two had a long conversation about their Alliance days and what’s happening in dancehall currently. They didn’t release the title of the single, but it will arrive sometime this week.
Vybz Kartel also posted a throwback photo of himself, Wayne Marshall, and Bounty Killer while clapping back at some recent reports about his weight. “Me , big Breda and DADDY!!! #AllianceDays …BTW dem say me get skinny. Apart from 2014 family day pic at horizon,when was VybzKartel ever fat? Smh #AllianceToGaza,” he wrote.
This is perhaps the first time that Vybz Kartel is making a live appearance in a music video since his arrest in 2011. The world has been waiting for this moment and it’s finally here thanks to Busta Rhymes. The video features cameos from a bunch of local Jamaican dancehall celebrities like Beenie Man, Foota Hype, Junior Reid, Spice, and Bounty Killer.
The cut was directed by Benny Boom and Busta Rhymes and starts out with Beenie Man picking up the hip-hop legend at the airport with his fleet of luxury vehicles. Busta then link up with his crew on a yacht and hit the Jamaican waters. The rapper then link up with some dancehall godfathers before visiting Vybz Kartel at the maximum security Tower Street Prison, aka GP. The cut features the incarcerated dancehall star behind bars while delivering a killer verse. Everyone is wondering how Busta Rhymes manage to get that cut, still a mystery, but this is Jamaica.
Busta then left from the prison and link up Foota Hype party in Kingston with Tory Lanez and the rest of the dancehall crew, including Spice, Bounty Killer, Ninja Man, and Junior Reid. The single “Girlfriend” was released over the summer on Conglomerate Entertainment and Epic Records labels.
Although the two warring dancehall hitters are yet to make piece, they both performed on the same stage with dancehall legend Bounty Killer. Masicka joined The 5 Star general to perform their smash hit “Top Rank” and then The General called up Aidonia to perform “From Them Diss.” Bother Donia and Masicka weren’t present on the stage at the same time, but Killer noted that he wants them to make peace.
“We have to do that as a leader and then I am affiliated with them I don’t know these youths personally,” Bounty Killer said. “They all came under my wing, Aidonia use to be under my wing and he still looks for guidance from me if he needs it and Masicka now seems to be under my guidance, not under my wing, but I am affiliated with him and we are performing together so I have to end up being a guide.”
Bounty Killer also added that he personally spoke to them about their beef. “I told them to sing against each other but don’t fling or sling,” he added.
Bounty Killer is well known for his phrase “cross angry miserable” but this time it’s Tony Matterhorn who is cross, angry and extra miserable.
Some dancehall fans are supporting Matterhorn saying that Bounty Killer was the one who provoked him first, but some fans are saying that he went a bit too far disrespecting the dancehall legend. Earlier this week, Killer made a post on Instagram giving DJ Khaled a proper shout-out and in the process dropping some shade on Tony Matterhorn calling him “ungratedful.”
The veteran sound system selector is now responding and he went in. A visibly upset Matterhorn was on Instagram Live yesterday calling out Bounty Killer using some words that we can’t repeat. One of the takeaways from what Tony Matterhorn said was that Bounty Killer envy Vybz Kartel and Mavado who were his protege for their massive success in dancehall over the years. The “Dutty Wine” deejay even spoke about helping Killer’s career back in the days.
Chronixx says no to a potential collaboration with Alkaline but can still name a handful of his music that he listens to.
The reggae singer was on Instagram live yesterday answering some questions from his fans. One of the main question was which reggae or dancehall artists he would collaborate with and he named a long list like Damian “Junior Gong” Marley, Stephen Marley, Bounty Killer, Kabaka Pyramid and more. But there are perhaps only a few artists that he don’t want to collaborate with and dancehall’s man of the moment Alkaline is one of them.
“Mi no know about Alkaline yet but mi rate Alkaline, some of his tune bad,” Chronixx said. “Mi just wish the man them never change up them skin, but that is just me because you can’t too watch anyone. Mi rate the tune that says formula and mi rate the tune that say champion boy because me would let my children them listen to it. So from the youths them can listen to it and dance and say champion boy. If people can dance to it and children can sing it then it’s a good song.”
Even if Alkaline is not getting a collaboration with Chronixx his recent round of features includes some big name artists like Sean Paul, Shaggy, and French Montana. Chronixx released his new album Chronology last Friday and is currently touring the United States for his hugely successful Chronology tour.
