Vybz Kartel and Mr Vegas

According to the self-proclaim Worl’Boss, dancehall is locked up in jail and will not return unless he is free.

Speaking with Anthony Miller of ER, Mr. Vegas hit back saying dancehall is can never be in jail.

“Kartel is in jail, dancehall is not in jail,” Vegas said. “Dancehall music was way before Vybz Kartel, dancehall music was way before Mr. Vegas, dancehall was here before a lot of us. I think the industry need to leave that whole ‘Kartel is going to save the music like Jesus Christ’ and pay attention to the artists that are doing good.”

Mr. Vegas also opened up about being underrated in dancehall and his recent Twitter beef with Bounty Killer.

“The way they try to put people against Mr. Vegas and the way they try to belittle Mr. Vegas,” Vegas says.

    Mr Vegas be silent please! he didn’t say he is the Jesus of “Dancehall” proclaiming himself as a dancehall hero is really the least and even if he had claimed to be a Jesus of Dancehall we all know that the stats of Jesus is a very debatable topic. Mr Vegas where were you when your beloved dancehall almost became non existent? Further Mr Vegas you are almost none existent yourself and your music is unrecognizable. Sorry maybe you are the cooks who never get the praise while the chefs suck all praise and glory

  • shawn occonnor

    It’s already a challenge for you to spell simple words, so understand that the ability to reason is lacking. Guess you are one of them failed by your shabby education system! you are trying to open a new genre of dancehall to fit Vegas in when afterall they proclaim themselves as dancehall stars. What exactly is the difference then? Further, if Vegas was such a stellar talent wouldn’t he stand out? He did not! Vegas is just another old dancehall act and his days are almost done in dancehall and there is no way he can claim to be underrated since he wasn’t really at the pinnacle of Dancehall!!! He is just using kartel to get some recognition cause anything Gaza touch turn gold! Guess if he was in a dominantly white country he would Want to play the race card! I rest my case imbecile

  • ihatefaggots

    Salute the boss vegas.

    Kartel is not only caught up in the misguided notion he’s Jesus of dancehall, he believes he is Jesus and God of the entire world. Wrong! So wrong. He’s conceited with no unique caliber. Caught up with self, that’s why he killed so many people, got away with many of them; but could’nt have gotten away with all. Apparently, there is an omnipotent being mightier than self absorbed/idiotic Kartel. Kartel is garbage, and has produced such music. (Garbage) If he’d utilized is ability to grasp information quickly/entrenpenur fetish, in a positive way; he’d be out of prison today. Additionally, would be admired by relevant and constructive people. Anyone who is jealous of Kartel, is a fool like Kartel himself. He and his followers, should put such accusation to rest. Jealous of a leopard, for marking his body from head to toe. What success? If that’s success, i’d rather choose failure anytime, if that’s called success. Kartel cannot walk in Vegas’s shoes. I’d choose Vegas over Kartel any day, in music and someone who i’d date. Kartel cannot walk in Buju’s, Beres, Sanchez, Beenie Man shoes, and countless artistes. Our music was fun, many people gravitated to it, before Kartel smeared its image. He’s right where he needs to be. D–n killa! Hope he enjoys and shares his humble pie with his co-accused. Kiss and make up after your fights behind bars, feed them with the pie Kartel, you are a freak anyway. Peace out World Boss
