Who is the greatest lyricist in dancehall of all-time?
This piece make for an interesting debate. Dancehall legend Bounty Killer speak his mind saying that Vybz Kartel is far from being the top lyricist in the genre. There is no doubt that Killer is one of the G.O.A.T.s of dancehall, but for years there has been an ongoing debate on whether or not Vybz Kartel is the greatest of all-time.

Bounty Killer’s main problem with Vybz Kartel is that he writes too much and record too much. This hit on the issue of hit ratio. The dancehall general also said that some artists has great writing skills but record too little so they never made the impact that his former protege made, case being his former rival Merciless.

“Some man write too much man,” Bounty Killer told the star. “Dats why dem write foolishness. I never made a mistake on a song. You can’t be the greatest writer and make blunders and mistakes.” Killer then points to one of his best work which is his classic single “Look Into My Eyes” which he says can be used to define his career as a dancehall lyricist and as a legend in Jamaican music.

“If you are the greatest lyricist, you muss can use one piece of work to define your art,” Bounty Killer added. He then points to “Book Book Book” as another defining single in his career and also another great and timeless dancehall song.

Where does Busy Signal, Alkaline, Beenie Man, Agent Sasco, Aidonia, and other falls in this conversation?

Last year, Bounty Killer said in an interview that Vybz Kartel is the king of the current generation of dancehall. “There are several kings,” he said. “King comes down in different generation so I guess Kartel is trying to say that he is the king of this generation… He is the king of this generation and you can’t deny that.”


Dancehall legend Bounty Killer has responded to some backlash that he has been receiving over his upcoming performing at today’s Women’s Day concert in Kingston.

TV host and activist Shelly-Ann “Dr Sexy” Weeks posted a video condemning The Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport for booking Bounty Killer as one of the headlining acts for the event. In her rant, she says that the dancehall icon is a well known women abuser.

In a lengthy post on Instagram, Bounty Killer says that he has never been convicted of any domestic violence against women. But he did admitted that he has had issued in the past but is now much more mature and grown. 

“@drsexxyann listen to what jesus mother mary has to say bcuz she was born a saint has never sined never did anything wrong in her whole life time or ever been forgiven b4 but I guess she is just another silly attention seeking clown bcuz she said it her self that it was Allegations and what does Allegations means Maybe So or Maybe Not plus i was clared of all charges so what grounds is she speaking from and the very same thing WeChange trying achieve these ppl objecting Change what am i attempting to do here to show that i’m changed grown and matured into a better me and i do regret for my alleged involvement or whatever which I’m still paying for up until this day as u all can see but I condemns domestic violence it’s wrong it’s totally unacceptable and it’s a disease or merely weakness we do make mistakes in life.”
