Ryno shoots down KipRich's 'excuses' - Says he needs to admit defeat and move on


Former Portmore Empire recording artiste, Ryno, has shot down several of the 'excuses' put forward by rival, KipRich, as to the reasons why he lost the Sting 2013 clash at Jamworld Entertainment Centre in Portmore, St Catherine.

"First of all, how him can say ah him pay me, or give me the run? Tell me something, the one year yu a clash fi $3 million, yu give it weh to yu little friend, mi no buy dat. Ah good artiste, but him need fi just admit defeat and move on, mi peel off him stripe like banana ... quickly," a laughing Ryno said.

Since his victory at Sting 2013, he has released a new single called Baddest Ting for producer Weedseed of Star Music in Portmore. The single is on the 'Happy Day' rhythm alongside Sting 2013 performers Ishawna, Specialist, Don Husky, Anthony B among others.

"This Sting ah the first time KipRich buck a real artiste, and him dead. Ah pure artiste weh pass dem prime him clash and kill onstage. Him encounter a fresh brain pon the stage and caan manage it. As a clash king, yu fi prepare fi anything, if yu have a lyrics fi Cobra, or anyone else, yu coulda put in a different name and flip it. That's why mi say gimme the belt because yu no deserve it," Ryno said.

Ryno said he had at least eight songs prepared for the clash but because of KipRich's poor showing, he only used one song.


"Mi chat one song and two street hits, the rest was all freestyle. Even Sashae, mi never prepare for her or expect her but mi think fast and adjust miself to the situation and deal with it," he said.

He also paid tribute to Vybz Kartel for his early guidance and influence during the Portmore Empire era of his career.

"Gaza means fight for what you believe in. Vybz Kartel show me that you can come from nothing and make it to the highest stages in dancehall and represent. Him show mi say it possible, so mi just want to bless him up pon his inspiration. Him show we say we can do it, and now we ah fulfil the legacy and carry it forward," he said.

Ryno has been added to Star Music's annual bash '29 Strong'. The star-studded line-up also includes Jah Cure, Bounty Killa, Sizzla and will take place on February 28 in Bull Bay, St Andrew.
