Beenie Man Demands Respect, Say He’s Still The King Of Dancehall
Beenie Man is demanding respect and is adamant that he is still the King of Dancehall.
Earlier this week, incarcerated deejay Vybz Kartel was named the new King of the genre by Fox 5 New York news.
“He is one of the biggest names in Caribbean music despite being in prison for years, we are talking about the King of Dancehall, Vybz Kartel,” the anchors said.
Fox 5 NY’s general assignment reporter, Lisa Evers then shared an incredible story about Vybz Kartel’s rise to fame in the Dancehall industry and possible redemption as he awaits a verdict in his appeal trial.
The feature once again sparked a debate among Dancehall fans on who was the current King of Dancehall, while many argued that Beenie Man was still reigning, others said he was dethroned by the “Worl’ Boss.”
Seems like the Doc saw the comments and shared a throwback photo to his Instagram account, “1995 before social media, streaming platforms and digital media. Then and now. #dancehall#LoverOftheMusic&theCulture #reggae#IfYouKnowYouKnow #FashionIcon#DancehallKing #MusicalPioneer,” he wrote.
Beenie Man also uploaded a slew of videos from his recent performance for BBC Radio 1Xtra.
