The Beenie Man and Bounty Killer Verzuz battle got underway on Saturday (May 23). While nearly 700,000 viewers tuned in to watch the two Jamaican dancehall artists — who were actually in the same place unlike past Verzuz battles —  they had a few unexpected guests.

Not long after the event kicked off, at least one policeman showed up at their location and wanted to shut them down.

But rather than let the officer rattle him, Beenie Man politely asked him in his thick Jamaican accent, “Can we not do this right now? There are 500,000 people watching us right now from all over the world. Do you want to be that guy? Do you want to be that guy? Listen. People. The police are here. But we are not stopping because before COVID-19, it was murders killing people.

“It was people killing people then COVID-19 started … so we do this. Hey stop…Killer. Them gone out that door. The police are gone. We got rid of them. We are Jamaicans. We are being nice. We are being good. Don’t make me stop the fight! So people, let’s do this!”

Rihanna, who hails from the nearby Caribbean island of Barbados, wrote in the comment section, “Police go home.” Evidently, they did.

Twitter was also delighted with the way Beenie Man handled the situation, with one Twitter user saying, “This is the most Jamaican shit I’ve seen all day.” Others noticed Bounty Killer seemed to vanish into thin air as soon as the police showed up.
