Beenie Man 'Verzuz' Bounty Killer kicked off with the Jamaican national anthem.

Beenie told the 350k persons on the Live at the time: "Welcome to the culture!"

BET commented, "Jamaica, land we love".

Beenie Man started with the first track he ever clashed Bounty with decades ago. It was written by Beenie but produced by Jamaican producer 'Bobby Digita'l who passed away at age 59 on Thursday, May 21. He did it to homage to the late great producer. In like fashion, Bounty said his first song was his first Dancehall/Hip Hop clash and he called on his Brooklyn fans to "Listen".

Once Bounty started speaking on the mic, the comments started to go to how much people love Bounty's voice.

Six songs in, three from each, the Live viewers had grown to 380k.

Some of the celebrities in the Live chat included Miss Elliott, Safaree, Shenseea, Konshens, Idris Elba, Ashanti, Nas, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Spice, Diddy, Wale, Ja rule, Timbaland and more.

There was a cut around 8.58 pm and on the return one of the previous Verzuz participants Erykah Badu said: 'Part two'.

Hot on the return, Beenie Man asked Bounty one question, 'Seriously? Diss bad man yuh get...'

But Mr Bullet Bullet Bullet was not taking that lying down. He came with his arsenal including his collab with Lauryn Hill in reply to Beenie Man and Guerilla Black's Compton.

Beenie dropped 'It's all about Romy' and Ashanti commented: 'I'm winning on the counter'. Bounty said he does not deal with Romy.

Bounty said he gets called when de gyal want a beat-up not a sweet up. And as soon as he took off his shades, Rihanna entered the chat with 'Bounty Killaaaaaaaa' around 9.13 pm.

Buju Banton was in the Live chat in the part two as well.

Then at 9.23 pm there was a break as Beenie Man said 'The police are here' but he said they won't let them stop the Verzuz. He urged: 'Show gotta go on' and he called back Bounty. On his return, 'I are the poor people's governor' said Bounty and he took the listeners to parliament 'Look into my eyes...' and Beenie even ad lib and sang backup for Di General. Then he sang, 'We ran de place...tell a boy stop watch me rasta man style'.

By 9.34 pm the viewers were up to 426k.
