Beenie Man is standing firm by his controversial statement that he balance the dancehall genre.
The self-proclaim dancehall king came under fire last month for an interview he did with Hot 97 radio in New York City.
“I am the balance in dancehall music,” Beenie Man said. “Because everytime the music goes like this I got to bring back on track.”
But the Grammy-winning dancehall kingpin says he will not take back that statement. Speaking with Zip FM radio, Beenie explain why he made the statement and added Bounty Killer to the mix.
“People take it out of context, I am still the balance of dancehall, me and Bounty Killer is the balance of dancehall because without we there are no dancehall,” Beenie Man insist.
“Put fun and joke aside, if Beenie Man and Bounty Killer out of dancehall where dancehall is now. Despite what other artists want to take it as or what the want to say we have to be here to balance dancehall. If all the young artists take over dancehall and you take out Beenie Man and Bounty Killer where dancehall is when the two of us come out of dancehall. So people need to be realistic and don’t take things out of context,” Beenie Man added.
Beenie Man also explained why he is the most relevant artist in dancehall currently while speaking about his tour in the United States.
