Speaking with Anthony Miller of ER, Beenie Man says Alkaline does not make the cut and his style of music is vastly different from those back in the 1990s.

“It’s not my type of music,” Beenie said. “Him deejay dancehall music and him do a lickle singjay style and mi not fighting him but he is not my cup of tea.

“If you listen to my type of music I would rather go deejay about back it up and jiggle up and me is a man mi listen to music around my youths [kids] and my mother and my woman, so I couldn’t go take up one of those CDs,” Beenie Man explain.

Beenie Man was not so critical about Popcaan, Chronixx, and I-Octane, who he has high praises for.
