Dancehall Icon Bounty Killer Silences Three With Harder


In the run-up to Sting 2013, a number of deejays released songs that either directly or indirectly took jabs at Bounty Killer. Mr. Vegas, Mavado and Anthony B were foremost among those brave (or some would say foolish) souls who dared to dis' the GrungGaadZilla, with Vegas going as far as to express his readiness to challenge Killer at Sting. While that Sting clash did not materialize, as Isaiah (Laing) failed to pawn out Bounty's fee, Bounty did not allow his challengers to escape his fury. However, rather than respond with a verbal attack of his own or a forgettable cash-crop tune, Killer dropped Harder, a lyrical bomb that has silenced his challengers.


Harder, a gritty hardcore dancehall song on One Jam's Harder than Hard beat, captures Bounty at his lyrical best as he delivers a fiery and confident welcome to challengers while warning them, “every brick and every limb a go fall.” While Bounty does not call any names in Harder, other than that of Sting promoter Isaiah Laing, the consensus in the streets is that Harder is Bounty’s hard- hitting lyrical response to recent challenges and negative comments directed his way by the aforementioned trio. Further fueling this speculation is a sample of dialogue from The Harder They Come movie in which Jimmy Cliff, in the role of Ivanhoe Martin, answers his own question, “You think is one I drop? I kill three.” The use of this sample has only served to heighten suspicions that Harder was in fact aimed at Vegas, Anthony B, and Mavado. Some persons on social media have even gone as far as to label Harder as “Mavado diss.”

According to Jah Mikes, a longstanding soundman from Portmore, "Harder is a classic knockout punch, so any deejay who get knock woulda need a recovery period before dem can respond, if dem can even respond at all." Judging by the lack of a response from Vegas, Anthony B, and Mavado, it is apparent that Harder has in fact silenced Bounty's challengers for the time being.
