Young Warrior Shocks Out On Sting For The First Time, Maintains Steady Meddy

Over the past few months, 20-year-old Jamar McNaughton, better known to reggae fans as Chronixx has emerged as the hottest new artist in Jamaica.

Hours after her no-show at Sting 2012—where she was expected to clash Spice—Macka Diamond went straight to the studio to record a dis track called “Donkey.” Her next stop was an early morning interview with Reshma B for Boomshots. Macka explained to the ReggaeGirlAboutTown that she did not run from the clash and that Spice would have been “an easy kill.” In this epic four-part interview, Macka Diamond speaks on her earlier dis track “Kill The Black One,” and tries to clear up any misunderstanding about the lyrics.

Because at the end of the day, Macka is all about her “Money-O.” Video After The Jump…
