“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.

    Beenie and Bounty just orchestrate fake feud all the time to 1 up each other and act like they don’t plan it, to keep their names floating around still. Beenie has his style, but hasn’t made any notable songs and Red Bull was due to Fambo, he made his mark in history music books.. but relevancy in current space is below what he thinks. Who has he buss??

    Whether true or not, it is just a really arrogant thing to say. If Beenie is really the balance, then just gwaan do your ting and gwaan balance the music… Why yuh have to go and TAKE credit? And not just take credit, but try to discredit others as well? Leave other people name outta yuh mout mi yute.
