( L - R ) Ryno, Gage - Contributed

A bitter lyrical battle is ensuing between dancehall artistes Blak Ryno and Gage.

Not mincing their words, the artistes have been involved in a lyrical showdown since January, with neither entertainer opting to quell the growing dispute.

According to Gage, Blak Ryno was first to record a song aimed at him, and being the entertainer he is, he had to answer to Ryno's comments.

"Well, him do a tune and call mi name, so mi call back fi him own and him run go do interview wid ER and make me look like di troublemaker," Gage said.

The deejay who calls himself the 'walking gun', released a song called Dancehall Football in January. Aimed at Ryno, the song accuses the deejay of only being able to make a mark in music at the end of the year, alluding to Ryno's surprise win at Sting 2013.

In the most recent exchange of words, Ryno has accused Gage of stealing Tommy Lee Sparta's voice as well as performing oral sex on women.

The song, titled Di Truth, was released earlier this month in a joint effort by Khalfani and Garrison Records and according to the artiste, the song is expected to put all arguments to rest.

"A me name Ryno don't, and a we say go harder; him cyaa answer dat," he said. The deejay also stated that other than incarcerated deejay Vybz Kartel, there is no one else in dancehall as lyrically potent as himself. He even went further to call himself the "real walking gun", dubbing Gage the "talking gun".

However, having heard Ryno's counteraction to Dancehall Football, Gage says he will answer Ryno, stating that he has already recorded a track titled Dynamite. "Mi affi answer da one deh cuz it seem like him (Ryno) know more about my life than me," he said.

The song is slated to be released on YouTube today. Gage told The WEEKEND STAR that while the rivalry is good for entertainment, he doesn't plan on going back and forth with the exchange of words. "Mi nuh support foolishness, suh if him put out a song weh nuh mek no sense, mi nah go answer."
