With the recent emergence of new disputes forming in the music industry, the “Juggernaut” deejay is making it clear that he is standing clear of the drama.
Much of the recent fuss in Dancehall has been due to different artistes staking their claim to the much coveted “King of Dancehall” title.
The most vocal and recent claims to this title come from no other than Beenie Man and Vybz Kartel. The “Nuff Gal” entertainer has claimed that he has been the king since the 90s and is still ruling, while the “Dancehall Hero” deejay states he is the true king, even though he is currently incarcerated. Neither looks like backing down or retracting their claim to the title anytime soon.
Alkaline, however, is saying that he is quite content with being the “Young Lawd.” The title he bestowed upon himself since his 2013 advent in the Dancehall arena. Taking to Instagram, Alkaline took jabs at fellow Dancehall musicians who are fighting for the top spot.
In a cryptic post, the “Champion Boy” reaffirmed his position in the Dancehall space.
“See some of unu a fight ova the Don. Unu can keep it. Me addi young lawd,” he wrote on Instagram Stories.
While he didn’t name drop the two Dancehall acts, music fans took to social media to express that they believed Alkaline was in fact directing his message to Vybz Kartel and Beenie Man.
One fan wrote, “Beenie and Kartel this a go for but let the chips fall where they may Young Lawd.”
Other than the recent post, Alkaline has been keeping a low public profile. Alkaline has been working on his sophomore album and the post could mean a sign of what’s to come.
