Dancehall self proclaim king Beenie Man is not one to shy away from questions relating to rival artists in dancehall.
In a recent interview with Walshy, the Doc opened up about getting back his visa, his relationship with former friend and rival deejay Vybz Kartel, and the surprising feud between Alliance and Gully.

Beenie Man also call out Mavado for constantly getting into trouble with the law even though he recently got back his US visa.
“We need fi be entertainers and support the youths dem, we no need fi a go a jail and a create problems,” Beenie Man said.
On his current relationship with Vybz Kartel, Beenie Man said he don’t have any conflict with Vybz Kartel because he is working with Corey Todd. Beenie said it would be difficult for him to hail Vybz Kartel on the street because of “the brown thing” (bleaching).
“Mi a rastaman and mi no mixup inna certain things,” Beenie Man said.
On the Gully Alliance feud Beenie Man said that is family business, “father need fi know wha him a do wid him son dem, cuz member inno Kartel was him son and Kartel gone, now Mavado out fi cut, so di father muss a do something wrong.”
