Alkaline Makes Historic Appearance On Audiomack’s “Fine Tuned”

Dancehall artists always look forward to milestones in their career, but very few can say that they created history for the genre.

In past times, the lyricist has been compared to the great Vybz Kartel, and there have been many so-called manufactured beef started by fans of the two artists. However, in spite of that, one thing we can agree on is appreciating good music, and Alkaline has never faile...
