The Grammy-winning deejay, currently in the island celebrating his 39th birthday, has long been criticized by Jamaican music fans for not putting out â€œauthenticâ€ Dancehall songs since unveiling his Dutty Rock in 2002. Â Known for doing several successful Dancehall/Reggae singles with a crossover vibe, including the recently released Got 2 Luv U featuring American singer, Alexis Jordan, Sean Paul has copped mass criticism from locals yearning for him to produce a more original Dancehall sound.
However, the We Be Burning deejay took to official Twitter account to sharply address said critics; suggesting the work he does should be appreciated more by Jamaicans.
â€œRRR! ALL JAMAICANS WEH NO LIKE NOR RATE MI OR MY MUSIC GO S*CK U MADA WIT STRAW!!! A ME A REPRESENT U! RRR!!!â€ he tweeted.
Shortly thereafter, fans called out Sean Paul for his tough talk. Upon reading fan retorts, Sean Paul further clarified his stance.

Meanwhile, Sean Paul continues to promote his latest project, The Material Riddim which features several top names such as Voicemail, Raine Seville and Mr. Vegas amongst others.
