Vybz Kartel and Mavado disses rain down on Self Defence Riddim

Once again, a war of words between Vybz Kartel and Mavado is brewing in the dancehall even amid all the euphoria that surrounds the phenomenal achievements in this year’s Olympics by Jamaican athletes.

According to industry insiders, Mavado started the war when he voiced Dem a Fag on Cordel ‘Skatta’ Burrell’s microwaved rhythm, Karate, which is now called the Self Defence. Mavado, in his diss song, makes references to Kartel’s tattoos and takes umbrage with a well-known Kartel about ‘not wanting to know God’. In the song, Mavado spits: him say dem a fag, ah battyman alone nuh waan know God, well bleach out and full a tattoo like Rod.

However, Kartel’s response, Weh Dat Fah is brilliantly caustic and delivered with chest-thumping swagger and fury, and the listener is immediately keyed into the head-knocking intensity of the track. He drops a kicker of a chorus where he reveals that he is having sex with Mavado’s mother while repeatedly asking 'wah dat fah?'; and for the umpteenth time, makes references to Mavado’s homosexual brother. He questions Mavado’s street credentials and calls him a ‘community barber’, draws attention to Mavado’s potentially blasphemous title, Gully Gadd, and declares that “Selassie is my Emperor’. Industry insiders said that Kartel had voiced a song called 'Send a Hell' before Mavado had voiced.

Efforts to get a comment from either artiste proved futile.
