      Kartel represent fi di ghetto ppl and he belongs to the ghetto ppl and they are going to naturally defend what is theirs. Kartel brought niceness inna nuff ppl life, it is more meaningful to them then an outsider looking in would understand. the situation is bad for them and he was their relief, the way they see it, he did more “good” for them than the so called “justice system” did.

      • Gaza Boss

        you said it best dan. kartel bring a different kind of hope to not only Jamaican ppl, but ppl world wide. yes he has plenty songs with explicit lyrics but he also has many reality songs that highlight d struggles the ppl face on a daily basis. Guilty on not am supporting Adijah Palmer aka Vybz Kartel aka World Boss aka The Teacher aka Gaza Dan, 150%.

      Kartel did god and bad, don’t judge him.

      • Apple God Bless

        Don’t worry about people judging Kartel, on that final and last day when God put in is appearance all will be judged for his and her sins. Kartel cannot give an account for no one sins on judgement day but his own. All you people need to realise that Kartel is no God he cannot save anyone.

    music that makes the people forget about their situation even for a minute. It is a brief but needed relief that his masterfully crafted relief bring to a down and oppressed community. It is a powerful thing!

    • mash up head

      It sorry to say a gaza mi come from and world boss gone to jail. This is an example of how serious the judicial system of Jamaica has become. He has been tried. They found him guilty. This protest of ignorance arrogance and lack of knowledge again awears the system of how much power the world boss have giving them more reason not to let him out. There is a way to a more peaceful protest. The evidence prove teacher guilty. Sorry to hear dat.

        Not because you came out of a community, you should be like the community. You need to give your life to Jesus, because on that day of Judgement everyone will have to stand before the almighty one and answer for his and her sins. If you should die and your soul shall be lost its nobody’s fault but yours remember that.

  • junior

  • Chuckygee

    Well when you have a government that is powerless to deliver or chooses not to, then it is obvious that people will put their hopes, trust and aspirations in someone or something other than the government. When your dealing with JA music and those that make music are quite frequently elevated into positions of mini Gods and often become the healers of the nation. It may appear ridiculous to many, including me, but when the power structure continues to fail the masses, I think, it’s the power structure that needs investigating not just the likes of vibes cartel…

  • Prince Fame Shem

      Kartel should have given his life to Jesus, maybe he would have been freed, but him a devil worshiper and no devil can be successful in life for long, A Jesus mi say, and without him no man on earth can prosper, Some Jamaicans like too much slackness, they need to find themselves something progressive in life to do, like studying to make thy self aprove. Wake up and get educated and stop living off other people’s music to eat a bread. The word of God said, My people are ignorant because they are lack of knowledge. All you people you need to go and give your life to Jesus because on that day every man will have to give an account for his and her sins, Kartel cannot answer to Jesus for anyone sins but his own.
