A new song featuring dancehall artistes Tommy Lee and Vybz Kartel has added more fuel to the current controversy regarding Popcaan's alleged dismissal from the Gaza camp. The song is called Betray The Gaza Boss and contains lyrics which appear to be directed at the estranged Only Man She Want deejay.
Tommy Lee sings in the song's intro, stating that he wants somebody to desist from calling his name to get respect. "Don't sey yu love mi, man mi nuh love stop call mi name just fi get a forward," sings Tommy Lee.
Vybz Kartel starts his part of the song proclaiming to be the champion of the Gaza and implies that some of his followers used his name to make money, but have no ratings (respect) for him.
"Stop talk bout Gaza betta unno talk bout plaza unno a use mi name fi mek money but, unno nuh rate Mr Palmer. Every ghetto youth unno listen to deh part ya, nuh bite the hands wey feed yu none tall mi nuh have nuh time fi nuh bwoy wey nuh remember wey di World Boss duh fi him, tek dem from nothing to something, tek dem from the ghetto gone straight a foreign," Vybz Kartel deejayed.
The song was premiered on Friday by ZJ Chrome and has since been uploaded to YouTube.com by a fan. Since its upload, the unofficial version of the song has received over 2,000 views.
Just over a week ago, Tommy Lee appeared on popular TVJ show Entertainment Report to dispel allegations that Vybz Kartel had booted him from the Gaza, citing him and Popcaan as traitors.
According to Kartel's alleged release, said to be issued by Gaza Slim, within a week of his arrest, some of his followers switched management arrangements.
The alleged release read: "I just want you to let the people know that all a dem runnin aroun sayin Gaza, Gaza" are not real. Before I came here, we were 'good." No animosity, but within a week of my arrest, they started giving other people managerial and booking positions. But where were these people when I was building their careers? When I was investing time and money to transform them from nobody to somebody? They are opportunists and fake."
It continued, "I'm not surprised because this is dancehall and I have no problem with them making their money. But I jus don't want them to be all over the place exploiting a movement that I built with blood, sweat and tears when they and I know they aren't real. I want them to stop. The only two loyal people are Slim and Sheba (the girls) and maybe it's because they haven't fully realised their potential."
