Following an alleged subliminal diss by Beenie Man aimed at Mavado, a rep from the “Nah Use Dem” deejay’s camp has reportedly responded, referring to the self-proclaimed “King of the Dancehall” as a “badmind” person.
Beenie Man is full of jealously for criticizing the “Up Like 7” deejay about not attaining a Grammy award, according to a close source to Mavado.
“Beenie Man is full of jealousy from long time,” said the source.
“He is surely not at the level where Mavado is at, and so he should just simmer. Having a Grammy from 15 years ago don’t mean anything in 2016.”
Mavado also posted a photo on Instagram of himself, smoking while looking unconcerned, at his mansion in Kingston.
In 2000, Beenie Man released “Art & Life” which received a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album.
In 2008 Mavado was given the prestigious UK MOBO Award for Best Reggae Act.
In April 2010, Mavado starred as a gangster in Drake’s song Find Your Love for Drake’s album Thank Me Later.
He has also collaborated with many of the world’s top urban acts including Busta Rhymes, Wyclef, Ludacris, Birdman, Fabolous, Ace Hood, Akon, Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z. Jay Z remixed Mavado’s smash hit On The Rock, that went on to also see Billboard success.
In September 2011, Mavado announced that he had signed a deal with DJ Khaled’s record label We the Best Music Group.
