Amidst the debate between Beenie Man and Vybz Kartel on who is the current King of the Dancehall, a fan of Bounty Killer made a comment expressing the “Fed Up” deejay to the late King of Reggae, Bob Marley.
“King Yellow Man, Beenie Man, Vybz Kartel the current king and one of the dancehall leading bredda, I want to make this clear and very clear, Bounty Killer is the Bob Marley, of Dancehall. There is no DJ on this planet do more for dancehall than Bounty Killer has done. Now this is not up for debate you dig,”
Bounty Killer agreed with the comment and wrote, “Hands Down.”
Bounty Killer has an arsenal of hits with entertainers like Fugees, No Doubt, Busta Rhymes, Mobb Deep, among others. The musician also brought some of Dancehall’s biggest names to the forefront including Elephant Man, Busy Signal, Vybz Kartel and Mavado.
However, despite his huge accomplishments and influence within the genre, Bounty Killer often doesn’t get the respect he deserves from the current and older generation of Dancehall artists.
