Dancehall artiste Mavado talks in-depth about Bounty Killer feud




Dancehall star, Mavado has opened up about his ongoing feud with former mentor and Alliance leader, Bounty Killer, claiming a lack of respect, among other things have cause the falling out between the two deejays.

Mavado appeared on CVM’s OnStage talk show, aired Saturday night, speaking from the We The Best Music Group headquarters about the issues between himself and Bounty. In the interview, Mavado held nothing back, joking that Bounty must be ‘mixing Hennessey with crack,’ after questioning his loyalty to the Alliance and calling him a ‘sellout,’ saying he’s always shown his ex-mentor respect.

“Mi stand up beside yuh straight and mi show yuh loyalty and respect straight, everywhere inna di world mi go, mi she big up Killa when yuh nah dweet,” he said. “How Killa fi get up and she mi nuh show loyalty and who sellout. Weh u mean by dat Killa? A your actions mek we inna da spot hah today.”

Mavado then brought up the fatal shooting outside the QUAD nightclub in Kingston in 2011, outside Bounty Killer’s birthday party, which claimed the life of his best friend, Conroy ‘Connie’ Edwards. He says Bounty acted disloyal in the first place by having the party at a club which was partially owned by then rival deejay, Vybz Kartel. However, his biggest gripe remains that Bounty never sent condolences to him about his loss, instead blaming him for ruining his party.

“After what happen at the club, Killa still couldn’t tell mi condolences fi mi friend,” he said. “Him couldn’t look pon mi fren mother, daughter, family and seh simple condolences, and remember she is a ute weh u know too,” saying Bounty used to have Edwards run errands for him and even hung out with him and Mavado the week before the shooting.

Following a slew of diss songs Bounty Killer aimed at Mavado, the ‘Gully Gaad’ maintained that the songs were not up to par, saying Bounty sounded ‘hungry’ more than angry. He even said he went to great lengths to defend his then mentor, but never felt he got enough credit for it.

“Me a di defending champion fi di Alliance, when you nah do nutten, when a man a diss you to the last ground and you couldn’t defend yuhself. Mi loyal to the Alliance weh mi help mek.”

Not only did Mavado speak openly about his issues with Bounty, he took shots at former Alliance teammate, Busy Signal, who he called an ‘idiot’ and ‘Gary Reanno Gordon,’ in reference to Busy’s hit One More Night in which some music listeners said Busy mentioned ‘Gary’ in the song.

“Oooh, mi sell platinum and this and that. 30,000 streaming inna Europe. Platinum? Yuh a gwaan like yuh sell a million copy Busy. Stop talk and top gwaan suh Busy,” Mavado said in response to Bumaye, Busy’s single with Major Lazer which went platinum in Denmark.

“Yuh nah no street cred Busy. We nuh see yuh no weh. How yah talk bout ‘di General, di General,’ and nobody nuh see yuh and Killa a par fi years now,” he added, which also calling Busy an imitation of legendary artists Shabba Ranks and Terror Fabulous.

Meanwhile, We The Best Music Group founder, DJ Khaled also spoke on the Bounty-Mavado feud, telling OnStage, “Mavado is my friend and I heard things in the street that there is a little vibe going on… But at the end of the day Mavado will tell you I am always going to promote love and promote peace and I am always going to promote positivity because that is what a real friend is going to do.”

He also hopes for a future peace collaboration between Bounty and Mavado, writing on his Instagram page, “Everyone always ask me what’s a collaboration u would love to make happen. I tell the world I would love to make a rec wit @mavadogully @grunggaadzilla ! Jamaica STAND UP! #Alliance #wethebest the people the streets want to see this happen!! I’m going go hard and find away to make it happen !!! Jah know!!!!”
