Teach Dem is doing a great job, so even though he is not a producer, we thought of giving him the song,” he went on to say. I don’t like disposable music, so the collab will be on an uplifting topic that people can relate to and listen to every day. They officially ended their quarrel during a two-hour discussion with YouTuber Teach Dem. “I wasn’t paid for the show, and I was getting calls from people threatening to kill me because I didn’t perform. He added that he even tried to explain this to Bushman while the two were at a mechanic shop back in 2005. King identified an incident in Kenya to further illustrate his point. King explained that after seeing a Bushman interview with Teach Dem, he decided to call him up because the same incident was mentioned again, and he felt that it was time to clear the air. After that, things still went downhill for the two, and their professional relationship remained strained. Natty King explained that a lot of the angst that they had towards each other came after Bushman was arrested with a gun and the song was released. “I told him that I didn’t like the things that he said, and we spoke, and we decided that Teach Dem’s platform would be the best way to clear the air and move forward,” he added. Reggae veterans Bushman and Natty King led by example when they recently squashed their 20-year beef. He shared that it involved a promoter who was friends with Bushman. He also said he was looking forward to their upcoming collab. “We were doing an interview, and they wanted me to stand in front a picture of Bushman, and I said, ‘No’. After that, I heard that I was upset that the promoter had a Bushman song as his ringtone,” Natty King explained. He continued on to say that he never really had any quarrel with the fellow veteran. One where he said he felt his life was threatened because the promoters were from the same area as King Natty. He also shared with the STAR about an incident in Canada. However, that song was written from my own personal experience in Swallowfield, and had nothing to do with Bushy. He never intended to record to the track to offend Bushman. Panhead, Dirtsman and Peter Tosh dead by gun, so mi figure seh dem man nuh fraid fi kill artiste. That incident is also now in the past, and he and the promoter are good friends. Bushman added that even though he was aware of the track, he “never had the thoughts of being mindful of Natty King”. Looking back, I realise that I should have reported it to the police and deal with it on that level,” he said. The STAR spoke with both artists, who confirmed that their long cold war is now over. It’s never too late to make peace. Many fans thought King had taken a shot at Bushman, but he explained he was writing a song about his personal experiences. “No Guns to Town came out around the same time that Bushman got held with a gun, and people seh the song was about him. At the end of the session, they even agreed to drop something new together. Their issues started in part due to a misunderstanding over the song “No Guns to Town.” The two avoided each other for two decades even though they both hail from St Thomas. “For me, it was always water under the bridge, but now it is official.
