Sim Simma! This time Beenie’s got the keys to a new Mercedes.
The King of the Dancehall Beenie Man earlier this week showed off the all-leather interior of his pricey new Mercedez Benz. The 47-year-old singer has a lot going on for him, as he added what seems to be a white Mercedes SUV to his collection and gloated happily in his Instagram Story that he has copped “Another 1”
In the short clips, shared by Beenie Man, he offered some rhymes while celebrating the purchase. “Plastic offa seat, brand new car yuh zeet,” he said while showcasing the white, unblemished exterior.
Beenie Man closes off the video by showing off the Benz’s “fat” rims.
The Dancehall veteran recently returned to the United Kingdom after 12 long years and recently caught up with Complex Magazine to promote his upcoming project, Simma.
Beenie spoke on why chose the title Simma — noticeably from his 1997 megahit Who Am I — for what will be his first album in 13 years.
“People have been talking about how I haven’t produced an album for a long time. Time is a virtue, indeed, and the aim of the album is to come and take over the white noise. Why? Because the King is here! It’s just me in my element,” he said. “We also have great collaborations from Sean Paul, Giggs, Popcaan, Shaggy, Bounty Killer and more. Every feature on the album is a No. 1 song. Quality, quality and quality! The entire album is great. I think people would love the Giggs feature. The Giggs collaboration is straight murder—he killed it!”
When asked what the music meant to him, the veteran Dancehall artist said he never wanted to be anything else.
“Music means everything to me, being a musician is everything to me. I never wanted to be anything else! I used to stutter as a kid, so music opened doors for me I couldn’t even imagine,” he said. “I’m not an electrician but I know how to do it and even plumbing, I know how to do that. But music’s in my DNA, in my soul, and it has always been there for me.”
“Music is my life. I don’t care about any opinions about myself. I am me and I keep it true to myself, so I don’t need validation from others. The greatest thing in this life is that I’m still here and I’m still relevant. No one can take that away from me.”
