King Yellowman

King Yellowman

With this question "Who Is The Real King Of Dancehall" we have just opened up a can of worms.


There is no official King Of The Dancehall even thou a number of artists have claimed that they are the King.

Yellowman

The First unofficial King was Yellow Man, Yellowman (born Winston Foster, 15 January 1956) is a Jamaican reggae and dancehall deejay, also known as King Yellowman.

He was popular in Jamaica in the 1980s, coming to prominence with a series of singles that established his reputation.

Beenie Man

The 1990s saw the rise to fame of the now self-proclaim King Of The Dancehall Beenie Man. Although he was the one who takes claim to the name, He was crowned by the organizers of the world renown festival Reggae Sumfest.

Anthony Moses Davis (born 22 August 1973), better known by his stage name Beenie Man, is a Jamaican reggae dancehall recording artist. He is referred to as the world's "King of Dancehall".

Vybz Kartel

The late 2000s in dancehall music history was introduced to a young artiste by the name of Vybz Kartel. Very controversial, lyrical, hardworking, an entrepenure and smart artiste.

He is now been toted as the new King Of The Dancehall. Adidja Azim Palmer (born 7 January 1976) better known as Vybz Kartel, is a Jamaican musical artist, actor, record producer and entrepreneur.

Kartel is one of dancehall's most successful artists and among his various nicknames is referred to as "Worl' Boss".

So who do you think is the "Real King Of The Dancehall"?, We would love to get your comment on this very touchy topic.

Please help us to put and end to these speculations once and for all.

Sorry, Beenie man the king of dancehall
by: Anonymous

Sorry but Beenie man is the legend and only king of dancehall king ,there are many dancehall kings but Beenie man is the king of all dancehall artist , he has the track record and alot of achievement. Beenie man IS A GRAMMY AWARD winning artist Kartel has no granny , Beenie man has alot of billboard hits more than Kartel by far if Kartel has any, Beenie man is called king worldwide more than Kartel, Beenie man has sold more records than Kartel and we can go oo and on Kartel is not in Beenie man class so don't do that to the great Beenie man comparing him with a non winning Grammy artist Kartel is just a now a day Rtist

vybes kartel king of danehall worldboss
by: Tyson Mackenzie

Vybes Kartel is the king of dancehall in this modern times.Because the man is a modern ,reaggae artist,modern entrepreneur,he is a man of his own generation standing the test through dancehall challenges even prison did not stop him from fowarding with dancehall.Up until now he is at dancehall' core and still doing it.He has build his own empire though dancehall music and we know he is the gaza empires' boss,through gaza artist do rise.Instead of being under bounty killer he is standing on his own.I mean a man is recognized because of hard work.

King of Dancehall
by: Arioso Legato

In my opinion, Vybz Kartel is the King of Modern Dancehall. Yellowman and Beenie Man had their reigns during their respected times. Like any other King and Queen, the torch must be passed. I do agree that we should still respect the predecessors.

Vybz Kartel
by: Dj Flexx

To me I think Beenie Man is the King, he has accomplished more than Kartel and Yellow Man.

Remember he also has a Grammy Award.

Beenie Man for Sure.
