@IAmRaytid Defends TGE Label In New Single

As the heat of the “Clash Season” rises, it seems that tempers are flaring at the True Gift Entertainment (TGE) Recording Studio as Dancehall Artist Raytid releases a diss track aimed at Dancehall Artist, Versi.

The song, which is titled Burial Ground, is an answer to a track done by Versi which took shots at Recording Artist Demarco and his ‘Bun Up Gang’ (TGE), the camp to which Raytid is signed. This new ‘beef’ came about since Demarco recorded the controversial track We Run the World, to the disapproval of Versi as he replied on a Riddim produced by Jay Crazie, former Studio Engineer at TGE.

In Dead Already, Versi threw jabs at the “Bun Up Gang” boss for referring to him as ‘dead’ on TGE’s controversial web series, “Talk Yuh Mind” and counteracts Demarco’s We Run the World. While the drama brewing may seen frivolous in some circles, Raytid’s Burial Ground, which was produced by Social Yaad Records, fires lyrical shots at Versi, calling him a ‘dirty child’ and a Groupie. The song came as a surprise to many as Raytid has always been making party singles, and no “Clash Ready” tunes. Fans of the two await further developments as tensions rise.
