Sizzla, a legend of reggae and dancehall, claims that Grammy Award-winning rapper and tycoon DJ Khaled “insulted” him.
This morning, he began a live Instagram broadcast to express his displeasure to his followers. He then posted the saved clips to his timeline.
The musician took apart and burnt plaques that were given to him to mark the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) platinum certification for two of DJ Khaled’s albums on which he is featured. He did this with the assistance of members of his entourage.
DJ Khaled’s best-selling album, Grateful, which earned Sizzla one plaque, was certified double platinum in January of this year for combined sales and album-equivalent units of over 2,000,000 domestic copies. He appears on the song with the same name, “I’m So Grateful.”
He did the same to the plaque for DJ Khaled’s 11th studio album, Father of Asahd, which was handed to him for selling more than 1,000,000,000,000 copies in 2019. Along with Buju Banton and Mavado, Sizzla is one of the featured artists on the Holy Mountain project.
Sizzla revealed that he could not see his name on the plaques, yet it was unclear why he was furious.
