There is never a dull moment in reggae or dancehall land. Reggae artiste Jah Cure took to his Instagram account to warn off producer Kemar ‘Flava’ McGregor about exploiting reggae acts.
The Grammy nominated artiste is accusing McGregor of using his Grammy nomination and being number one on Billboard for Top Reggae Album of using this platform to advertise another of his (Cure’s) album that he (Flava) produced.
On the album that Flava is promoting, Jah Cure has written in red with bold caption “FAKE ALBUM BY #FME RECORDS.” The singer also wrote Please don’t buy.
Some of Jah Cure’s fans have since run to his defense with one fan stating “what more barefaced could this guy be?”
In a response on a Facebook post by Clinton Lindsay McGregor wrote: “Jah Cure claiming that I am exploiting his Grammy nomination to promote my album. Jah Cure your not the only artist that I produce that is nominated for a Grammy. I have produce records for Grammy Award winning Pop Artist Sinead O’Connor and Neo Soul Artist Musiq Soulchild who have 11 Grammy nominations, that sells millions of records just to name a few.
Jah Cure have come out today in the media claiming that songs that I produce with him I don’t have the rights to. Jah Cure you’re a lair I pay you to record these songs and all these songs are copy written in the library of congress. If you don’t withdraw your statement and continue to tarnish my reputation I will file criminal charges, definition (defamation) of character and slander against you in the US.
These songs have release for years and so why now your claiming that I don’t have the rights to these songs. I know its your record label VP Records that influence you to do this. Jah Cure you know the situation that you already in so stop being dishonest because you know I pay you for the recordings.”
