Di Genius talks creating Controlla, Vybz Kartel split, ignored Alkaline claim + more [Audio]

Prolific Jamaican producer talked about Red Bull & Guinness (Mavado “Weh Dem A Do”), establishing Mavado, re-establishing Vybz Kartel, Nelly Futardo almost getting Trippple Bounce riddim (Vybz Kartel “Bicycle”), critics of his hip hop-fused style killing dancehall and feedback from established producers.

In this second part, no long talk asks about 2010-2016. While many see this as his lower period in terms of output and presence in the dancehall scene, this has been his most productive in the mainstream market. McGregor talks about failure with Sean Paul’s album Imperial Blaze, two Grammy Award nominations, first UK smash-hit “Dangerous Love” by Fuse ODG and Sean Paul, plus creating Drake’s “Controlla”.

He speaks on international success affecting Jamaican work, whether Vybz Kartel fall out slowed his dancehall hits, claims he ignored Alkaline and ends on whether international artists making dancehall takes away from the Jamaican music industry.
