No Beenie Alliance – "I am not here to own no man"

By Krazy Katty Writer

beenie_box_girls_town_album.jpgBeenie Man made it clear on Vibes 93.8FM with Sarah C that there is no need to form an Alliance, Empire or crew, as it makes no sense to go that route. According to Beenie Man, his aim is not to over shadow other artiste’s careers because it is not in his best interest to “own nuh man”.

Sarah C of Vibes 93.8FM:
Now you are an original dancehall singer in every sense of the word, you don’t seems to do the things that other artistes do. As far as I can see there is no Beenie Alliance, there is no Beenie Empire, there is nothing like that, you have stayed away from that kind of things - you preferring to do collaboration with other artistes could you tell us the reason for that.

Beenie Man:
It is not for you to go out there and tell a person that I am going to mek you and I am going to mek you become this artiste (superstar) when the person is already an artiste before you meet them. Now like Baby Cham, I could a say that Dave Kelly build him because he was actually like a robot, he wasn’t a deejay in no form what-so-ever. So when you ago meet an artiste with his talent and because yuh sing a song with him and get him out there then you ago try to own him (bad idea). Look at T.I. I did the song “Dis Badman Yuh Get Shot” and that was his first hit song, I could have seh I am the one who break him to the world - I could have seh I introduced Mya to the Dancehall world – I could have seh I introduced Tanto Metro & Devonte, I wrote “Everyone Fall In Love” and actually partly produced it.

Beenie Man also told Vibes 93.8FM that a lot of people wait for new talents to burst onto the scene, “and just because yuh give him/she a little limelight yuh ago seh yuh own them no, I am not here to own no man, I am just myself”.

Bounty Killer Hate Mi

Sarah C of Vibes 93.8FM:
Okay we mentioned the alliance and I can’t let that pass without asking you a quick question about Bounty Killer. I guess in my mind I like the thought that you have this feud, you have this rivalry and competition is good for any industry, but are there times when you just ring each other when no one else is listening and you laughed about them.

Beenie Man:
No! Weh Mi get fi figure out and find out this man (Bounty Killer) hate mi – last week (recently) on a interview him tell people that I got innocent people killed and even seh mi a gay too pon di TV. So yuh get to realize that this man cannot be you, this man cannot be where you at, this man cannot have the career that you already have, this man just rather yuh dead and get rid a yuh out of the picture. I never know that until I saw him last week (recently) on the TV it was very scary.

Sarah C of Vibes 93.8FM:
So from your point of view it was genuine?

Beenie Man:
Yeah, he was actually arguing with the man that was interviewing him. He went to Reggae Sumfest and got booed for calling up my name and the people them boo him off the stage. Then him go pon TV and seh mi carry three bus load of people to booed him, mi nuh know if 40,000 people can hold in a one bus.

Every Song Bounty Sings About Me Becomes a Hit

Sarah C of Vibes 93.8FM:
Well I guess the competition is good though still and it probably helps long term with your career.

Beenie Man:
No, it helped him; I have never sung a song about Bounty Killer that goes somewhere, the songs that goes somewhere for me is mostly about girls, weed or something else. Every song that him sing about me goes somewhere because that’s the only thing him have to sing about.

U claim him cant have you career but yet still like a big fish u a follow up everything the man say or do, worse you co marry him ex, now if that a no obsession then tell me is what. since you a di superstar as you claim, it should be the other way around, why not out your self in a different class then a dont even call the man name, no cause you obsessed you just want to be Bounty friend,, abaaay

I agree with Beenie. This one bag a man thing always cause problem. I don't say that one cannot collaborate, but forming crews and sh*t like that cannot be healthy. Look on Biggy & Tupac and the crew thing, then move home to Alliance and The Portmore Empire and the negativity begin to loom its ugly face

Mek beenie gwaan all him duh a tek from the youth dem and nuh give baq look at determine him thief him style dat him still use today. beenie love follow up bounty too much, but at the end of the day the business cant do with out them. Bunty seems to accept the fact that him get older and him need fi contribute by helping to strengthen dance hall and thats what he is doing with Alliance its not a crew thing its helping youths who have talent. beenie nuh seek todo that all for him self.

All Beenie haters can just take a backseat please. Am so glad that bounty got booed for caling up the Dancehall king's name in a negative way. he should learn from his foolish mistake and just hop off Beenie man's name for good. Bounty is just mad he cant step up to Beenie man's caliber NO DAY!

Posted by Sister Kerry | August 20, 2008 12:24 PM

Well, I too am sick of the feud between Beenie Man & Bounty Killer! I pray that one day they will be able to put their differences aside. When you harbour hate in your heart, it consumes you even more than the person you hate, as evidenced with Bounty Killer, who really is becoming a fading star!

Posted by Sandy | August 20, 2008 3:52 PM

Every body need to remember it's one world & one life so there should not be any feud & badmind and talking about allience. We need good artiste coming out of the music industry. Keep up the good work Beenie and keep your head cool.
Respect & Love

Posted by Apryl | August 20, 2008 5:32 PM

I know these 2 men very well and I admire both men for making strides in the dancehall! But I must say tumbs up to Bounty for not being selfish with the blessings that God has given u!

Rodney Price u have a gift and a commanding force to bring out new talents and you will always be remembered for that! So when plp are gonna say that u have a bunch of men around u, tell them it's ok, they are only there because they know u are not selfish and if u see potential in them ur gonna push them to be the best they can be! And for that u are grudged! Besides, i'm more than sure that ur NOT a fish, babes after so many yrs I can swear for u! I can glady testify that one ole fi sure dem nah go find u ina, wether man or woman!!!

Beenie is saying that he is not in the crew thing, but he must be forgetting that once upon a time shocking vibes was the biggest crew!!! But where are it's members now? And apart from beenie man which one of them has a big name now! None! Shocking vibes has fallen because Moses Davis is all about himself and that is why he goes thru so much, he takes advantage of plp too often! When the alliance was on the go Beenie said that the crew thing is so negative because Bounty was only in it for himself, but little did we know that Beenie was only talking about it from his own badminded prospective! That was why he stole Don Maphia's idea and formed Maphia House Production! But God don't sleep thus Moses evil thought seed was overdrown when his own estranged wife ended up with it after a few fights in court!

Rodney ur blessed and highly favored by God and even if wi lef no one can take ur place, u have ur flaws but ur the strongest man I have ever seen and I mean that in every sense of the word! Just keep focus babes and this year u might just be the winner!

Posted by BEAST | August 20, 2008 10:15 PM

I like how beenie say he has never been in a crew. It seems he forgot about the whole shocking vibes crew movement back in the days with ladySAW, frisco kid, kirk, snagga puss, silver cat etc. The real problem is that beenie is too selfish so he does not know how to share the spotlight.No wonder all those artist left. who remebers the fall out between beenie man and frisco kid. Another thing what the hell happen to snagga puss and silver cat? The other issue is that beenie is upset with baby cham because he tried to steal cham style and cham would not let him get away with it, so he calls him a robot. wow. beenie you are a good artist one of the best dacehall icons but very badmind. yow you already mek u name give some other arist a chance to mek it if you dont then bounty will always get more props than u. dont be quik to be alone and refuse to help anyone remeber u dont want to end up like tiger.

yow lets set tings straight...People follow great leaders, not weak ones. The greatest leader had twelve man a follow him pon earth, now the world follow him, so weh beenie a seh. Him nuh si nuh body nah falla him cause him weak, and when dem find im out dem gone. Him badmind and covetous everything bounty have him want. The man lyrics, the man friends, the man woman ,the man fans, what next the man life.The last ting him want is to use the man like how him use everybody else but bounty a nuh fool, bout him a invite the man and him frens to him stage show fi perform through him know say Movado a di run di place. Go weh fish!!!
No doubt he is a great entertainer but him nuh have good heart cause him will step pon anybody to advance him career and him nuh business a who, from shocking vibes,frisco kid, capleton, sizzla, don mafia, de-angel, even roses and bogle,last but not least his latest quest spice.Then him go back and act like him and dem a fren.wickkedd bwoy daht.
Him Good but even the best get boo.., him fi remember national stadium the biggest boo him get a him career, sting and countless others weh him go against bounty.
Him a di trouble maker then cry wolf fi people sorry fi him.
Just like how bounty aget older him a get younger and him will always be de-jaying.... people hima fade and him nuh stop use controversy and passa passa fi stay inna di light. Yow my youth save you money and nuh let de-angel tek weh all a it,althought she already secure har future from you,so when you get older you nuh flap.
Bounty have him dutty ways which everybody have some but him stay true himself and nuh falla people. Sorry sey things nuhwork out with some artist but thanks to Bounty they were brought to the lime light and able to shine and continue to do so.Two king can't rule one palace so if a bounty place and a young prince feel like him ready fi rule him find him owna kindom and thats just what happen to Cham, Ele, Kartel and may just happen to Movado. Nuff a dem youth yah seek out bounty, cause dem like the man style and want to join the man camp and many out deh still want to do so right now. However, they must remember where dem a come from and who pave the way for them.
Dem seh controversy sells Beenie and Bounty know that all too well and dem both benefitt, but Beenie fi stop foll up the man all when him nuh si him.
fix you life and leave Bounty...FISH....

Posted by Teka | August 21, 2008 2:42 PM

It makes no sense for somebody to "claim" that they "buss" and artist and then in another couple of months they have to part ways because of "dictatorship" Bounty Killa wants to dictate to everybody and that is why he does not get along for long with anybody.....Beenie Man you are one of Jamaica's best just be yourself and leave out the passa passa that mother lashy love.

Posted by Anonymous | August 22, 2008 8:18 AM

i would say both of these niggers are crazy man.for how long do you have to keep this thing going,both of you shoulda be an example to the young artist comin up but instead you separating the youths weather you know it or not,young people are growin up in this selfish thing dem cal rivalry...this b*tty buoy thing should be stop at all cost for the benefits of the young artist...

Posted by Can | August 26, 2008 5:10 PM

Alright, why Beenie have to drag Baby Cham into this damn foolishness with him, Bounty and the Alliance? Look how long Cham not even remember them. Cham living a more decent, better life than him and Bounty, cause Cham life nuh stony like theirs. Cham have him wife and family inna Florida & his mistress in Jamaica and everything smooth cause him don't pick-up woman that cause him problems. Plus him still getting booked for shows.

Beenie, I've always liked you, but cut the f**kery now and stop try create beef with someone who don't even remember you.
