Bounty Killer – “The Poor People’s Governor” – with Beenie Man Clash Discussion & Chunes
Bounty Killer a.k.a Rodney Price is one of the Kings of The Clash as well as being tops in the field of Dancehall artists from Jamaica.
Bounty helped to boost Reggae Internationally by playing a critical role. Bounty Killer is a clash dj – very blunt and in your face. In the late 90’s and 2000’s, Bounty’s hardcore style was identifiable to the Hip Hop audience and helped to pull in those listeners to Jamaican music. Bounty blended hardcore with down to earth cultural lyrics and built a foundation which others utilized to push Reggae music even further. Still, Bounty has been prolific over the years and today continues to record in great volume and tour the world.
In the process, Beenie Man stepped in and crossed Bounty. Beenie is a self described “adaptor.” Much like water, he can fill any space and take on that form. On the tune “Wicked Man,” Beenie used some of the style that Bounty had perfected in the tune “Spy Fi Die.” Bounty took offense and the conflict was formed. The animosity shared between the artists took the form of Reggae Sting Clashes as well as song fe song counteractions over the past 20 years. This podcast features many of those songs. What we did do is to provide only portions of the songs in order to encourage you to seek out the tunes for purchase at your local record shop, on I-Tunes, or from Ernie B’s Reggae online. This way the artists can benefit.
