After initially insisting that he would never clash Bounty Killer out of respect for the iconic entertainer, Tommy Lee has now hinted that if provoked, he will challenge the ‘Grung Gaad’ at Sting 2012.
"Why me can't be a demon, why me can't be that character. Killa can't study me, him can't drain mi energy. This morning mi wake up see new song name Nyammy Lee. A who him a call so? Mi nuh fear him, that a mash potato and bully beef. Anything a anything over Sting!" Tommy Lee told the media.
Meanwhile, one of Bounty's protégés returns to STING for the first time since his memorable clash with Vybz Kartel in 2008 as highly acclaimed singjay, Mavado will perform at the prominent stage show. Mavado, who has elevated his international status since joining forces with DJ Khaled’s We The Best Music Group over a year ago, has been absent from the local scene for the most part since his move. However, singles such as Box of Money, Real N****s Do Real Things and All Faces have kept him a dominant force on the Jamaican Dancehall scene.
Another Gaza artiste, Popcaan will be making his second straight appearance as a solo act at STING 2012 while popular deejays, Aidonia, Kiprich and Khago will also perform at Dancehall’s most controversial event.
STING promoter, Isaiah Laing expresses that this year’s show hails as one that the streets will love.
"We always listen to the streets. Whatever is happening at the parties we know, we read the streets very well. Whatever the street is calling for, that is what they will get. Sting 2012 production is gonna be high quality, smooth transition from one top act to another. We also have a surprise with a four-the-hard-way sing off. Top reggae acts, we talking about big names of the past. Something that they have never seen before, we will have it this year,” Laing stated.
