Beenie Man and Shabba Ranks still at odds

No Comments

beenie-jazz.jpgAfter a very questionable explanation about why Beenie Man was not allowed to perform at a show in Trinidad earlier this month, it has come to light that the Dancehall Doctor and the Grammy Kid, Shabba Ranks, are still at odds.

Shabba reportedly told the promoter of the event that Beenie Man could not perform. The Doc was added to the roster of the "Unplugged" concert after Barrington Levy fell ill a few weeks ago with Dengue Fever.

But seems Shabba Ranks remembered those old comments made about him by Beenie Man back in 2012 and went ham on the promoter to take the dancehall king off the stage.

In the end Beenie did not performed but his manager is saying that the whole melee is over the band Ruff Cut who was booked by Shabba.

"He was to perform with Ruff Kutt, but when we got there, there were issues," Blue said. "It turned out that Shabba Ranks was the one who hired them and therefore he could not work with them. He (Beenie Man) did not perform, but was not barred from performing."

But that statement was just a cover-up of the real issue. So why didn't Beenie Man perform with a differnt band if that was the case?
