Reggae world, we all know what has been going on in the music world lately. I’m talking about all of the ongoing clashes. Some people think it could get out of hand one day and reach the rancorous level of Biggie and Tupac. In the end, conflict sells (e.g. Biggie & Tupac; Beanie & Bounty; Mavado & Vybez Kartel) but people have to be wise and know it is a lyrical war, not a physical confrontation. Some of these artist have said numerous times that these clashes are musical expressions, not meant to be taken literally. But I wonder if reggae clashes will ever escalate to violence? – MP
