Dancehall artiste Vershon recently told The Star that he will not back out of the lyrical war between himself and fellow entertainer Jahmiel.
“Clearly, mi career is a problem to some artiste. People did a tell mi from a longer time but me never really did a pay it any mind until him get me son involved,” he said. “Him say him ago tun mi yute inna him stepson and me take offence to dat because anybody know me, know say my son a mi life.”
Vershon says he took particular offence when Jahmiel made mention of his son in one of his songs and thus felt the need to respond not only to defend his son but to prove he is no walk over.
“Mi nuh wah no man feel like me a coward, nuh true yuh see me a sing nice songs with positive messages, yuh feel like yuh can diss me or diss me yute. Mi a ignore him long enough. Maybe him friend dem round him a hype him up and if yuh feel like your career better than a next man career, keep dat to yourself man.”
Though each artiste are affiliates of the ‘unruly’ and ‘gully’ camps respectively, Vershon sought to establish the fact that the clash is between himself and Jahmiel and is prepared to go as long as Jahmiel is prepared to draw it out.
