Beenie Man says what everyone is saying - Spice not ready for Queen of the Dancehall title

beenie-man-photo-8.jpgIn a recent interview on OnStage, self-proclaimed King of the Dancehall, Beenie Man says Lady Saw remains Queen of Dancehall and that Spice doesn't have the accolades to claim that title. After all, how can anyone be the Queen of Dancehall without putting out even one album, without having a big international collaboratiobn; without having even one song on the Billboard chart?

"The Queen of Dancehall, Marion Hall is baptised, so i am here to see the next queen to come," he said.


When quizzed about Spice getting the title, Beenie Man stated quite frankly that although Spice had upped her game and seemed poised to claim the throne, that's not how you become a queen.

"If yuh guh tek Lady Saw crown, you affi do weh Lady Saw do! no disrespect," Beenie said. "You can't do less work" and expect to claim the title. Beenie however agreed that Spice is now the queen-in-waiting. But, Spice could be w-a-i-t-i-n-g-f-o-r-a-v-e-r-y-l-o-n-g-t-i-m-e. Let's hope not.

And, of course, Predictable Grace (S-P-I-C-E) reacted in her usual hostile manner to constructive criticism.
