Veteran Dancehall deejay, Chad Simpson, more popularly known as Mr. G has called out former stable mate, Cham following recent comments the artiste made about him, Red Rat and Alliance leader, Bounty Killer.
Cham gave an interview on CVMTV's OnStage on January 14 where spoke about the success of his hot new single, Wine as well as the role of long-time mentor, Bounty Killer in building his career. During the interview, Cham claimed that during the late 90s, he had bigger hits than Bounty Killer associates, Mr. G and Red Rat but didn't rise to prominence as quickly due to lack of promotion. Additionally, Cham claimed that Bounty Killer assisted in his career as built his way toward mainstream success in the early 2000s and beyond.
Responding to Cham's claims, Mr. G, formerly known as Goofy, intimated through a recent interview that the Drop It Like You Doing It singer has always been jealous of him and Red Rat's successes.
"How Baby Cham fi talk say inna 1996-7, him have bigger songs than Rat and me by far, but the only thing him never get was promotion, and how much him never get the highlight even though he was bigger than me and Rat. Cham is nothing but a red-eye guy, me and Rat was the pacesetters, we do the ting, travel out the world and been travelling. Him need to understand him little self and him fi know anything ah anything," he said.
Mr. G also implied that Cham has become ungrateful towards Bounty Killer for the role that the "War Lord" played in his success.
"Bounty never just assist, him buss Cham to the world, him introduce him to the world and bawl out him name mek people know him, Cham need fi know say him and Dave Kelly ride pon Bounty Killer bandwagon, and him probably woulda never buss without Bounty Killer," he said.
Mr. G became renowned in 90s for singles like Fudgy and Buff Bay while showcasing more recent hits like Swaggerific, We Neva Like Dem First and Clean Everyday alongside Beenie Man. Red Rat, though out of the spotlight in recent years, remains known for several hit singles including Tight Up Skirt, No Live No Weh and Shelly Ann.
