Stephen ‘Di Genius’ McGregor, spoke candidly on what it felt like being in the middle of the historic the Vybz Kartel-led Gaza versus Mavado’s Gully lyrical war.

The Grammy Award Winning music producer, singer, and songwriter gave his insight earlier this week when he stopped by The Fix for an interview on their podcast.

“I think a very specific situation was Ghetto Whiskey and ting and shoot the medley video for it. Dem time me and Kartel did par. We were going to the video shoot, me and Kartel ah drive I think, and I remember I was just like yo, what time Mavado and dem ah forward, dem dey ah collab on that and him was like him nah go forward and him just change the subject,” Di Genius said.

Following this incident, Stephen said he observed that a lyrical battle was brewing between Vybz Kartel and Vyz Kartel. However he was just excited to hit the studio and never focused on the early signs of trouble.
