Jamaican hit maker, Justus Arison has unleashed a verbal flogging against fellow internationally acclaimed producer, Tarik ‘Rvssian’ Johnston regarding recent comments he made about reggae sensation, Chronixx.
Johnston called out the Capture Land singer on social media following controversial comments he made during the visit of U.S. president, Barack Obama to Jamaica earlier this month, claiming that the singer was a hypocrite and gave Jamaica a bad name with his perceived ignorance. That led Arison to leap to the defense on Chronixx in a social media rant of his own.
“Rvssian is a dunce idiot weh frighten fi people though,” Arison said as part of a series of Twitter posts. “Worse off him deeven live a Jamaica. Mention him fi mi too please. Tell him seh Justus seh him is a waste man eediat weh sell out Jamaica fi Spanish girl.”
“Me nuh stay like some bwoy weh need Kartel songs fi stay afloat” he added. “Me nah no don except the Most High. Me nuh follow back a man, Rvssian flop from Go Go Club rhythm. Dem sell out Chronixx fi lack of rice and peas.”
Arison, the mastermind behind the highly-rated Overproof and Overtime rhythms also fired verbal shots at prominent singjay, I-Octane, who he believes has been getting far too much acclaim and credit for his work in 2014.
“High Froctane? How can people vote for I-Oxtail as Singjay of the year? He barely had any major songs last year…,” he said.
Johnston seemingly responded to Arison’s claims by calling him a ‘kid’ while I-Octane has stayed quiet since the rant.
Arison has worked with a number of dancehall heavyweights including Mavado, Beenie Man, Bounty Killer and Gyptian, as well as international stars such as Shurwayne Winchester, Daniel Bedingfield and Nicki Minaj.
