In a recent interview with Anthony Miller of ER, Beenie Man insinuate that any other dancehall artistes could have gotten similar support to what Shabba Ranks got last weekend on his arrival in Jamaica.
“Anybody can get that you have to just pay for it,” Beenie Man said.
The comments did not go down well with Ninja Man, who accuse Beenie Man of being “badmind” (envy).
“A me buss Shabba, so from you dis Shabba, you dis me,” Ninja Man told the Star. “Shabba do work whe nuff artiste never do yet. Him leave Jamaica and give di artiste dem space fi make money. Beenie Man a talk bout how a buy di man buy him motorcade when him come a Jamaica, Beenie Man you badmind Shabba. You too bad-mind.”
“Shabba motorcade full airport. Shabba a me artiste, any man whe violate Shabba, violate me. Beenie Man tek way the ‘King of the Dancehall’ title from Yellow Man and sound like him waan tek wey the ‘Dancehall Emperor’ title from Shabba Ranks,” Ninja Man added.
Beenie Man has since defended his statement saying he was simply saying the dancehall icon had to foot the bill for the motorcade.
