Twitter War Sets The Stage For Epic Clash At The World’s One-Day Reggae Show
Around this time every year tensions between artists get hotter and hotter—it’s the run up to Sting and the heat is in the air. Looks like it’s about to get fierce. Over the past week or so Lady Saw & Macka Diamond have been sparring on Twitter (click through the gallery above for a raw and uncut recap) and there has been talk of a lyrical clash on the big stage of Sting. This is the second year in a row that Macka has been in this situation. Last year she was caught in a war of words against Spice in the run-up to Sting 2012 and the promoters had billed them both for the headline clash. But then on the big night the clash did not happen. Spice was there—along with a donkey dressed as Macka’s “twin” but Macka herself did not take the stage. She later explained that she had a schedule conflict—but that didn’t stop Macka coming back with an answer song addressing Spice’s donkey stunt. Lady Saw did not attend Sting last year. Her energies where focused on her smash hit single “Heels On,” which was taking over the island. But after hearing Macka’s recent diss track and getting into it on Twitter (see above) it seems like the Queen of the Dancehall is raring to go. And now that Macka has officially been added to the Sting lineup, the stage is set for a Battle Royale. If Saw’s recent tune “Lef Dancehall” or her performance at the Barclays center in NYC this past labor day weekend is any indication, Mumma Saw ain’t playing around. Saw has said in the past that she would never clash, but it seems Macka has gotten on her nerves. Will the Queen get down and dirty to defend her crown? Will Miss Dye Dye shock the world and stand up to Muma Saw? So many questions—and the only answers are to be found on the big stage at Jamworld. If you can’t make it down to Jamaica this December 26th, don’t worry yourself. You can catch all the action on Pay-Per-View TV or via webstreeam.
