Deva Bratt Talks Founding Portmore Empire, Says Vybz Kartel Badmind [VIDEO]

Deva Bratt Vybz Kartel

Deva Bratt is still a bit bitter about getting ousted from the group he founded Portmore Empire.

Yes the rumors are true, Deva Bratt is the original founder of Portmore Empire, but Vybz Kartel registered the name before Deva Bratt could get around to doing it.

During a recent interview with PRgirlangel, Deva Bratt opened up about the history of Portmore Empire and his fallout with Vybz Kartel.

“He is the lyricist of lyricist, he is a good artiste but he has a personal problem,” Deva Bratt said about Vybz Kartel.

Deva says he was blind sided by Vybz Kartel when he came up with the name Portmore Empire and brought it to the incarcerated deejay.

“I was oblivious to envy, grudge and a thing call badmind… supremacy and people who just want to be ahead of people… I never knew those things exists,” Deva Bratt said.

Check out the full interview below.

      Check this article it’s from 2008 Deva has been talking about this issue a long time.

      I don’t think he was talking big he seemed humble in the interview. Be mindful that the topic of Kartel was brought up by the interviewer and not Deva.

    • Starboy

      Every time you open your trap your foot get caught in it open your big eyes and see that kartel has a problem and was a bully if 10 out of 11 people say he’s bad. He’s bad, he makes music you like I understand but you don’t know him personally, he could be the bat out of hell.

      • Ross Margarette

        And you know him personally?

      • Ross Margarette

    • Starboy

      So you’re suggesting that if he had said that when kartel the saint was not incarcerated kartel would bully him hmmm. So by you saying what you said kartel was definitely a bully.

    • NYC one

      Listen Christopher u sound ignorant that’s why Kartel going to prison him and is bag a man them attacking people you a talking garbage . Kartel and him deadbeats could have never ever attack a rasta artist a JA . Certain rasta artist in JA don’t play . Trust me any one of these people who was around Kartel if they do anything they going to prison the police in JA know all of them .

    This is how the system controls the world T.V and newspapers remember when 2pac was going through his so called rape case they did everything to make him look bad so don’t believe everything you read or see on T.V

    Deva shouldve kept making music, he is good…

  • Real black man

    Dash wey de key! Kartel is not bigger than the law of the land! Murderer, blood deh pon u shoulder

  • imposing will

    So niggaz a talk say the media a bash kartel and deva never say nothing till kartel get lock,
    Well obviously he has history with the interviewer and he is in Florida where the interview took place
    Im sure they reached out to him for the interview and not the other way around.
    furthermore he is only answering the questions being asked as honestly and as diplomatically as he can, because it is obvious to me he could’ve taken the opportunity to say kartel fi rot in jail fi all he has done but he wasn’t doing that.
    It bun me fi Gaza fans them don’t use them common sense them worship kartel thru all him fukry
