Dancehall is an intensely competitive industry and from time to time, its main proponents turn into combatants when passions boil over. ONE876 has compiled a list of five of the best dancehall face-offs.

He was upset that Lexxus and Vegas had done a song with his name inna it and was in the process of playing an anti MEMORABLE QUOTE: 'the gal dem nuh need no taxi fare when dem can walk free pon yu tongue".
