Beenie Man takes his role as the king of dancehall very serious. The veteran deejay recently sat down with Hot 97’s Cipha Sounds where he opened up about the current state of the genre.
Beenie blame a lot of the problems in dancehall on the younger generation of artists and says he is not just the king of the genre but also acts as a balance.

Beenie Man also sound off on the old G’s in dancehall including Baby Cham, Mr. Vegas, Elephant Man, Sean Paul, and Bounty Killer, who he says are not doing enough for the genre.
