Spice and Lisa Hyper both apologize to each other and squash their decade old beef.
Firstly, Lisa Hyper begins anew by laying to rest her long-standing feud with Spice, stating, “Spice I’m sorry.” Dancehall artiste Lisa Hyper and Queen of Dancehall, Spice, have been entangled in a nasty feud for over 12 years. The feud began back in 2009 shortly after a performance at Sting. Lisa Hyper dropped a diss song directed at Spice, who then fired back with a savage diss song of her own, titled “Draw Me Out”.
Over the past few weeks, Lisa has been involved in a vicious back and forth battle with Jodi Couture, Tanesha “Shorty” Johnson and Lisa Mercedez. All three women have been laying claim to the title, First Lady of Gaza. They have all cited their personal ties and commitments to dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel as proof. However, Shorty made it known to all that she is the only one with access to his bank account while the other women only have talk and fans unanimously agreed.
It seemed that the situation prompted Lisa to truly sit and consider what is most important in life as she took to her Instagram account to publicly state that she has no beef with anyone. She began, “I’m just here to clear the air that I have no beef with no female entertainers, I appreciate all of you guys because all of you guys contribute to the dancehall music.”
She then showcased immense growth as she also apologized to Spice. “I want to say a big big sincere, humble apology to Grace “Spice” Hamilton for the past disrespect, and I want to move past this, and this is why I’m doing this. The past is the past, and you gotta have a past to have a future,” she said. In closing, she stated, “Mek we stop the foolishness and be the big role model and the star role model fi di fans dem.”
Elaborating on the issue at hand, Lisa captioned the post, “The world has changed recently and have forced me to look at life differently. I have realized that peace is much easier than war and that healing is important. I’ve made mistakes just like anyone else, but it’s what you do and learn from your mistakes that count.”
Tagging Spice’s “Women Empowerment Foundation” Instagram account and a fan account, she added, “Today I want to say I’m growing and healing. I still mess up, but I’m trying to fix things. Spice I’m sorry for the way I allowed the traditions of war in our music made me feel and treated you. You have done wonderful things for this business, females in the business and Jamaica. I want to let you know Im humbled and I appreciate you. I’m not sure how this will play out but from my heart I am sorry and I pray God intervenes where ever evil doers try to create anymore animosity.”
Spice reposted an article published by the Star on her Instagram account and issued a lengthy note addressing Lisa Hyper. "Apology accepted ‼️and I’d like to apologize to you too, because at the end of the day the disrespect wasn’t one sided. I too retaliated towards you in my diss song in a very derogatory manner.... read more at Urban Islandz

The track is being regarded as the best of 2020 as fans blast it from speakers on repeat. With Buju singing, “We a strive and a reach fi wi goal / Them a fight and spy through them in control / Dem a real asshole, but a long time / We a fight fi a slice of di bread / them a scheme and a dream and wish wi fi dead / But a God have wi head and a just now / We a scream and a cheer fi di team / them a plan how fi bench we and them rule supreme / Like a dem one fi clean / Well imagine we a try move out of the shack / Them a cry and a spy and a try stop we clock / Guess a who have wi back,” the track has a powerful message.
The uplifting video moves effortlessly between black & white and colored scenes. It begins with Buju having a conversation with his father about the current state of the world. Reggae artiste Koffee cameos in the video as she sits with Buju’s dad while she actively listens to the message they are delivering. Buju’s dad starts off by stating that he was driven to tears upon visiting a local market and witnessing how desolate the environment looked. Buju responds by saying, “Dark forces man…The dark forces have taken over the earth. Through every time of change you know, we have these revolutions from the French come right up.”
His dad breaks in, “That is why it won’t stop son.” Buju remains steadfast, ” So the change that’s going on now, with the youths revolting and rising up all across the world. So Jah said he shall call upon all sorts of us to do his works you know he called upon the adults and they failed us, so he decided to call upon the youths.”
With that, he shares a fist bump with Koffee as he says, “That’s why we have to make sure that the youths know the right things and stay awake so they can enlighten their generation.” You are then met with visuals of individuals raising their fists high in support of black power. The concept of the video surrounds the on-going riots and protests that are taking place in the world in the fight against racism and other important matters.

Actor Ray Fisher accused director Joss Whedon of “gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable” behavior on the set of the 2017 film “Justice League,” in a tweet that quickly went viral on Wednesday.
Fisher also claimed in his tweet on Wednesday that former Warner Bros. co-president of production Jon Berg, and former DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns, both “enabled” Whedon’s alleged behavior on “Justice League.” Berg and Johns also served as producers on “Justice League,” and the film’s poor performance was a factor in both executives exiting their positions leading the DC Films unit at the studio.
