Beenie Says He Makes 5 Songs Per Week Talks Spice & Legacy In Dancehall

Beenie Man says he is one of the hardest working deejay in dancehall even after so many years.

The dancehall legend also made it clear that he has nothing against Spice despite their running last year. During a sit down on Nightly Fix, Beenie Man opened up about a number of topics including his legacy and current status in dancehall. The deejay insisted that he is still the king of dancehall because he isn’t baptized.

One of the criticisms of Beenie Man and other older deejays in the business is that they still feels the need to compete with the younger generation of artists. When asked about that top, Beenie strongly pushed back against the assumption saying he doesn’t compete with any other artists in the business but still work hard because that is naturally who he is.

“The problem is I cannot go a week without making five songs, I will be a mad man,” the Doc said. “Listen, music just come by the beat, you hear the beat and lyrics start build, so every beat that plays in the studio you build a different song for it. It’s not competing, this is my job, this is what I do, I make music, so without me making music then me at my yard sit down a watch TV or a play game and I don’t do that.”

On whether or not he is taking away attention from younger artists, Beenie Man said, “This is the problem with dancehall music, why one man have to get all the glory, why everybody cannot get them own glory?”

“Alkaline have him own fans, Vybz Kartel have him own fans, Popcaan have him own fans, everybody have them own fans, so everybody is getting them own glory,” he continues. “Why is it that I am a threat to everybody? Because you is that man fan and you want that man to be where I am? Two entity can’t hold the same space one of us is going to blow up.



Beenie Man responded to some recent
criticisms from his daughter Desha Ravers in a
new song.
Last month, Desha Ravers, whose real name is
Deshagaye Davis, publicly called out Beenie
Man for being a bad father. “Mi just think him
need fi step up him thing,” the dancer said.
“Him a mek whole heap a luu moves suh him
just need fi start be a man, a father and
everything inna one now,” she said without
going into specific details about her contention
with the deejay. “The person weh everybody
know out a road a nuh the person weh me
Beenie Man released a new single “Twingy
Twanga” where he gave his daughter, who is a
member of Ravers Clavers dance group, a big
shout-out. “Me stop from dance I would never
never / Me stop love Deshagay I would never
never / Cause all of my kids them born in
dancehall,” Beenie deejay over the Belly
Bounce Riddim, produced by Cornelius
