Dancehall history was created, last night as the latest Verzuz battle between Jamaican artists BeenieMan and BountyKiller was the party everyone expected as the two artists battled in person in Jamaica

Beenie Man ‘Verzuz’ Bounty Killer kicked off in iconic fashion with the Jamaican national anthem. It was, in fact the first time two musicians competed physically on the Verzuz battle platform, as battles were all virtual.

Beenie Man started the duel using the first track he ever clashed Bounty with decades ago.The single ‘It’ was written by Beenie but produced by the late Jamaican producer ‘Bobby Digital’ who passed away at age 59 on Thursday, May 21.
This was a respectable act of  homage to the late great producer. In similar fashion, Bounty Killer said his first song was his first Dancehall/Hip Hop clash and he called on his Brooklyn fans to “Listen”.
Beenie Man and Bounty Killer came ready with coordinated outfits, each with their own respective DJs or ‘selector’ in the native tongue and a back-up dancer.
“This is how we represent the culture … At the end of the day, it’s a musical sport,” Bounty Killer said at the end of the two-hour livestream as he and Beenie Man sang Bob Marley’s “One Love.”
“No no, we not stop now” Beenie Man said as the live stream continued for another hour.
Beenie Man and Bounty Killer’s battle was part of an ongoing series by producers Swizz Beatz and Timbaland as a way to entertain fans during quarantine.
