The long-standing rivalry in Dancehall music between legendary entertainers, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer continues to intensify following the release of Beenie’s new single, “Cah Puff Mi Chest.”
Both deejays have exchanged a plethora of sharp-shooting diss songs at each other over the last week; starting with Bounty Killer's counteraction to Beenie's "Nah Talk Too Long" entitled, "Who Tell Him Dweet." That song followed comments that Bounty Killer made regarding Beenie's divorce from his ex-girlfriend, D'Angel earlier this month; claiming D'Angel was using him for her own personal gain. Beenie responded this past Saturday with the single, "Da Idiot Song Deh," where took shots at both Bounty Killer and fellow adversary, Tony Matterhorn. The next day, Bounty counteracted that song with, "Run Inna War," suggesting that D'Angel didn't want any "pissy tail bwoy" and even took a jab at Vybz Kartel; calling him "Lady Gaga."
Beenie's new effort, "Cah Puff Mi Chest," was released on the War Monger Riddim; produced by Open Ear Records. In the chorus of "Cah Puff Mi Chest," Beenie deejays, "P***y yuh cyaah puff mi chest, yuh cyaah beat me, Bounty have an eating disorder; yuh freaky, Gyal use yuh tongue as red carpet weekly, yuh teeth dem soon drop out, yuh too greedy." Beenie later addresses Bounty's claims regarding his association with controversial actor, Keith "Shebada" Ramsey; claiming the "War Lord" would fill a full segment of Shebada's story while re-affirming his heterosexual status.
Additionally, Beenie also claims that D'Angel told him about Bounty's freaky ways and implies that the "Grung Gaad" is overly focused on Vybz Kartel's and Mavado's career. Meanwhile, many fans have expressed mixed emotions regarding the re-igniting of the Beenie-Bounty war. Some have intimated that the beef has gotten stale between the two deejays while others believe that the two are using this as a marketing ploy to draw attention to STING 2011, taking place this December. The two established entertainers made peace earlier this year; performing together at Fully Loaded 2011 amongst other show. However, when Beenie claimed that D'Angel's decision to go to Bounty's birthday party and snub his own played a major role in their divorce, their perceived friendship seemed to deteriorate once more.
