Skillibeng Responds To Alkaline’s Diss Track With “Mission”

Skillibeng seemingly responded to Alkaline’s rumored diss track with a single called “Mission.”

The new release was first teased on Monday (September 20th) on the artiste’s official Instagram page when he revealed the first few seconds of the audio. Skillibeng added no caption and allowed the clip to speak for itself as fans immediately reacted to the new joint. The new track arrived within hours of Alkaline dripping “Sell Off” a track in which he mocks Skilli’s flow.

The catchy intro follows a well-shaped melody and makes way for Skilli’s rich, raw vocals to seep into the song naturally. The lyrics are thought-provoking, which made fans immediately piece together that the single could be a clap back at Alkaline’s new single, released hours apart on the same day.

After Alkaline dropped “Sell Off,” Vendetta fans claimed that the song was ridiculing the “style and flow” of Skillibeng as the “Extra Lesson” deejay is known for his own signature flow. Still, this song followed a nursery rhyme style made popular by Skilli, using unconventional punchlines, which sounded almost like he was talking.

On the other hand, over a trippy beat, Skillibeng showcases his lyrical prowess while taking aim at his opps. The whole song is directed as a threat to an individual who keeps bothering him as he gets ready for a mission to settle things.

The positive reactions towards “Mission” show just how ready for battle his fans are. While neither artist has said anything regarding the speculations, fans have continued to draw their conclusions that both artists are taking aim at each other in their tracks.

“Dem nuh know waa dem a do, wa dem a wait pon/only we a original and nuh di fake one/welcome di new me really and truly/tell di judge dem tell di jury,” Alkaline deejays in “Sell Off.”

“Yuh naa done run off yuh mouth a wa yuh need me rise mi ting now an guh run/tell reverse say mi naa go run/gwan chat till unu fall a ground /from dem see mi wul an gun off, no mask coward yuh taught yuh bad yuh naa go lass yuh drop gone in one second/yuh not special/good day,” Skillibeng fired back in “Mission.”

The lyrical tension between the two dancehall deejays keeps growing bigger, and some supporters are excited as long as they keep the feud lyrical.

Alkaline Seemingly Mocks Skillibeng In New Song “Sell Off”: Listen

Alkaline drops a new song where he seemingly mocks Skillibeng.

While some fans labeled the newly released single “Sell Off” is fiery and intense, others compare the flow to that of Alkaline’s rival, Skillibeng, and are adamant that the song is nothing more than a mockery of the E-Syde deejay’s flow. Admittedly, the flow and tone of the song is unlike Alkaline’s usual style heard in his other hit songs such as “Spoil You,” “Pretty Girl Team,” “Juggernaut,” and “Champion Boy.”

This song is slow and steady with intermittent punch lines and a nursery rhyme tune that is usually aligned with some of Skillibeng’s hit songs such as “Coke,” “Badman,” and “Mr. Universe.”

Nevertheless, like much of Skilli’s work, the song is recognized as a potential hit, as both styles seem to satisfy the relevant audience.

In the chorus, Alkaline spits, “Sell off/ Seen, check out my swag, yuh know when yah win/ Anything me touch, any style weh man bring dat sell off/ Seen, curry and kitchen and chicken and wing/ Airport stick ah bank robber choplin dat sell off.”

The Vendetta Boss has so far received several positive comments for the tune. While he has not responded to claims that he is mocking the style and flow of Skillibeng, the deejay took to his social media to post a clip of the song without a caption.

“E lawd hard eno, sell off,” one fan commented while others dropped fire emojis welcoming the song.

The reactions from fans were consistent on Alkaline’s YouTube channel. “I’m dying laughing bcuz I know he’s mocking someone,” one person said. “Him do Skilli better than how Skilli do him self,” another jeered while another concluded, “He’s mockin skillibeng slow flow.”

Alkaline and Skillibeng have been at odds for quite some time, as Skilli had long announced his association with Vybz Kartel’s Gaza Empire, a known enemy the Vendetta Camp.

Fans believed that Skillibeng’s “Internet War,” released last month, was a diss track geared towards Alkaline, but he had not confirmed speculations.

Skillibeng directly noted in the song that he is not into social media jabs. In one segment, he spits, “We have new song, nuff fi mi fans, no competition. None a dem cant clash me. Da pu**y deh know him wouldn’t last, control uno camp, no mix Skill up with no fan. Gunshot will touch you for dat. Lovely!”

The two deejays are not expected to join hands anytime soon, if ever. While they have not directly addressed each other amid their reputed feud, fans are adamant that they have been indirectly aiming at each other through music.
