What’s beef? Beef’s when your mama can’t go out into the streets. Beef is when you make your enemies start your Jeep. Beef is when you roll no less than thirty deep. Beef is when I see you, guaranteed to be an I-C-U.
Well in the dancehall genre, beef is what pumps up fan bases, and inspires many dancehall DJ’s to put out their most motivated material. How big is beef to dancehall? Well the beef between Mavado and Vybz Kartel is so big that it took the Jamaican government to hold peace talks between the two embattled stars in the House of Parliament in Kingston, Jamaica. Apparently the beef between the two camps have led to bloodshed in the streets of countless Jamaican communities. That’s no joke ting! Imagine Obama having to negotiate some trifling shit between T.I. and Lil Flip or Saigon and Joe Budden! Not a chance. Here’s to Jamaican jerk chicken and beef, clearly there’s none finer on this planet.
Scope a myriad of Dancehall beef after the jump.
