With the most anticipated stage show of the year, Sting 2009, peaking at us from right around the corner - it is expected that artists will be preparing to hit us with their best songs, designing the perfect outfit, and building up the drama until Dec. 26th, 2009.
Best known as the greatest one night reggae show in the world, you are literally expected to see artists put their best foot forward.
It is not a surprise that artists tend to make controversial music, have lyrical wars, and do publicity stunts until the upcoming event.
When Spice was questioned about the rumors that she and Vybz Kartel were no longer on good terms, she said that, "It's just a music thing."
"As far as I know, Kartel and I don't have a beef going on. My counteraction is just a musical one, even though I haven't spoken to him in a while 'cause I'm so busy with my album. I have no idea what he thinks about the song."
When Vybz Kartel was contacted, he had no comment to give about the 'beef'.
The musical 'war' started after Kartel's recent hit 'Do Me Dat', in which Sheba plays the role of an angry girlfriend who seeks revenge on Kartel, accusing him in the song by saying: "Mi have a strong feeling say yuh touch Spice." In the song Kartel responds, "Me and Spice ting, ah fren sum'n."
In Spice's song, however, she confirms that Kartel has tried to get involved with her, making reference to text messages she has as proof. She deejays, "Everyting yuh do me, mi ah go chattie back. Yuh did a look mi, yuh cyaan say a lie dat."
Getting more personal, Spice makes reference to the father of her son saying, "is a lucky ting mi neva deh wid you, and yuh neva get di Indian ting caw yuh a beg me fi lef di baby fadda mek me and you married and ting."
So, what do you think? Do you think it's more than a music thing?
