Vybz Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, was moments ago sentenced to 35 years to life in a Jamaican prison and hard labour.

The “Dancehall Hero” deejay, affectionately called Worl’Boss by his fans, shed tears as Home Circuit court judge Justice Lennox Campbell handed down the life sentence.

Kartel’s protege Shawn “Storm” Campbell, and his close friends André St John, and Kahira Jones were also handed lengthy sentences.

The handcuffed men were escorted out of court by heavily armed police officers where they will head straight to a high security prison.

“Addi (Vybz Kartel) remains strong and is maintaining his innocence so now we are looking forward to continue to fight for his freedom,” a rep for the dancehall star told Urbanislandz.com. “We are not giving up because the system imprisoned an innocent man. We will fight this down to the core and expose the Jamaica injustice system for what it really is.”

Vybz Kartel will be eligible for parole in 35 years.

      • Blackbeauty_1

        Yes this goes to show that no single individual is above the law regardless of his or her status in life, even president’s and politicians are not immune to prison and the arm of the law.

      • truemeds

        Are you saying that presidents and politicians are “not immune ” . Are you dumb ? This case only proves that the system is against dance hall music especially influential artists like Vybz.The justice system wanted to make the world boss an example. Only in Jamaica that can happen ..pol

      • DrM_11

        So a man is dead and all you’re concerned about is the TRASH music which has no positive message…..SMDH…

      • Blackbeauty_1

        You see how some individuals think, they have a very low reasoning capacity.

      • Chuckoff

      • AmberShay Joseph

        Love all those songs. People, dancehall music is just as positive as any other. This genre isn’t the only one that is corrupted technically they all have corruption tendencies.

      • Blackbeauty_1

        A mans talent can never be beneficial to him while locked up in jail, it will only be beneficial to those who are free and doing road like you.

      • Mama

        And life is what u make it !!! Great song

        He record that song in jail, not when he was on the street, who is he fooling, only his nuttle head fans dem

        Where is lizard? Lets cut the crap, someone killed him and now someone has to pay. I love kartel little songs, but he set himself up.

      • straw876

        i am not asking if you are dumb , i know you are , if he was innocent , why try to pervert the course of justice, Lisa Hype false statement , torch own house and didn’t even report it , produce false letter for main witness , hack into detective Facebook to make him look bad, buy jury, and up to today didn’t deny voice notes, you all think he is so intelligent , intelligence is thinking way ahead which Kartel wasn’t doing,

      • Makaveli

        Hey wise ass. Can you please learn how to use full stops (period) in your sentences and please refrain from calling people dumb. You DUMMY!!

      • straw876

        i know i am wise , thank you . i might not be wise enough to know when to use a “period” but smart enough to know not to record evidence against myself , and wise enough to be my own leader . ain’t nobody’s sheep. If my mother do the crime , she suppose to do the time . wrong has one universal meaning “WRONG”. BIIIIATCH. ………… and if you have time use up those extra periods where they are needed thank you

      • straw876

        btw , wasn’t it disrespectful truemeds asking blackbeauty if he/she is dumb ? SUMPH. it hurts to stoop so low but u draw mi out.

      • Blackbeauty_1

        The lack of full stops in straw876′s reply to truemeds did not by any means stop you from fully understanding what straw876 was saying. This is just a mere news forum and the use of the english language and its grammar is not meant to perfect.

      • BBDiva

        I completely agree with you. This shows the corruption that happens in our home lands. The one who commented no one is above the law is just crazy, there are NO politicians behind bars.

      • gary dale

        Not in jamaica blackbeauty if you are from uptown,rich and have the right politician friends you are above the law but if you are from the ghetto make your wealth you are still ghetto its just like rich blacks in America are still nigg@s, what happened to the bmw x6 suspect.can we create a media frenzy of his case also or will he be privately tried.

      • truth first

        Correction your statement should reflect: the law written governs all, however the humans that govern the law can dictate the manipulation and setting of the law.

      • Oneil Shuga Stick Martin

        politicians are immune…check u facts

      • Blackbeauty_1

        How many politicians in this world do you know who are immune to prison and the arm of the law????

      • Oneil Shuga Stick Martin

        most of them blacks…a nuh jamaica u deh..u watch news? u see how much scandal and mix up dem in..an after all the court cases settled, they just get a slap on the wrist..no prison time

      • yaadman

        Since u say that u don’t know the history of Jamaica justice system it’s sh-tty…they can’t find a body and Dancehall and reggae is the root of Jamaica tampered with evidence nothing isn’t fair here and Obama can’t help Vybz was banned from the u.s don’t send that here send it to England or t&t or Europe.

      • Lizard

        Yes a point was made at the expense of an artist. What a price to pay. We really needed his demise to teach this lesson? Pathetic. #SetUpTing

      • Blackbeauty_1

        I like the way you chose the name Lizard to be your username but yet you support Kartel di man who was convicted of the killing of the real Lizard. Its either you are confused or you are just pure hypocrite.

      • 19longtime

        Hype life ok. Just don’t murder people. That is what’s wrong.

      • truth first

        Are you making this conclusion based on circumstantial evidence provided during trail? Or are you making your comments and conclusion on your subjective feelings and what media has told you seems accurate by painting a picture to have you believe a reasonable doubt? Where is the body? Is lizard even died? Do you have all the missing pieces of the story? If so please share.

      • Blackbeauty_1

        My conclusion is based on 10 individual jurors all coming up with the same guilty verdict. Ask yourself these 2 questions and maybe you might find the answer within yourself :-
        (1). Why is Lizard not coming back from wherever he might be so that he proves to everyone that he is not dead and Kartel is innocent.
        (2). Why did the 11th juror try to bribe the other jurors so that they give a no guilty verdict in favour of Kartel.

      • Chuckoff

        1. God knows
        2. Maybe cuz he felt like it ?? Lol
        3. Go away

      • Blackbeauty_1

        You make no sense, so why don’t you find yourself a cliff and chuckoff.

      • Bleach face boi

        Do you know where Gaza strip is you cunt

      • Tweley

        I know where sh– come out of too, but in your case it’s from your mouth.

  • Jonaz

    This is unfair no justice! If he had killed someone with wealth and influence it would be 50 years before parole. I guess because lizard comes from a poor family his death isn’t worth much.

    • Lyric

      Oh Jonaz shut up he got sentence.. the case is over now its life you wont get what you always want..

    • Porchia

      I think 35 years was a good sentence….The man will be in his 70 when up for parole and that’s not guarantee. Cannot see what more years would achieved. And I’m no kartel fan no dancehall artist fan not my thing

    • Bleach face boi

      I think 35 yrs is more than enough even though I don’t like what kartel and he’s friend’s did I wouldn’t wish him to spend 50 yrs in jail, unless he was convicted for more than 1 murder or killed a child or something then yes give him 50 yrs. If he was in England he would have got life with a minimum tarrif of 11 to 20 yrs for that type of murder. In England you only get 35 yrs for shooting someone dead or killing a police officer and you WILL serve the full 35 yrs. There’s lot’s Jamaican national’s serving 35 yr tariffs in England cause they are stupid and think they can get way with it till Scotland yard catches you with them. Funny thing is most Jamaican national’s can’t do jail they self harm, attempt suicide, kick the door all night etc and it’s sad to witness and I’ve been to prison a few time’s but turned my life round 7 yrs ago and went in the straight and narrow.

YOU know how much ppl did a warn Kartel bout the ppl dem him have round him…..he went down the wrong road…nobody aint glorifying the situation he is in many are just disappointed and truly upset that this extremely talented artiste who was so promising and the hottest act just threw it all away like that. You reap what you sew my youth kartel was just a misguided and not humble individual..as educated as he was he should have known better..amazing yes but his time in the spotlight has ended by his own hands.Many of his fans are upset with him they just didnt expect this predicament but it is as it is..lyricist the greatest,hottest, creative hitmaker international artiste no one can take that from him..its just sad how he made a waste of his talent

        You are a brain wash idiot.
        The Romans created Jesus from the jews Judaism religion spread it throughout europe the back ward spanish and English took it to africans along with slavery and brainwashed our ancestors who brainwashed us and we have been stuck on that wagon ever since go read few history book and upgrade your knowledge of this world.

      • HOTTEDD_TURF

        YOU ARE CORRECT MY FRIEND JESUS IS AN INVENTION BY ROMANS….THERE IS A DVD BY JOSEPH ATWILL “CAESAR’s MESSIAH THE ROMAN CONSPIRACY TO INVENT JESUS” No wonder the so called prophecies Don t make sense not even prophecies at all…Just plagiarism from the old testament…its a lie we have been lied to…the gospels written in greek?? Why? A sudden shift from hebrew to greek….the scriptures even show no one can die on behalf of another (Ezekiel 18) even moses tried to die for Israel but the Most High forbade it(Exodus) each must pay for their own sin no one can die for anyone…so this concept of a messiah is greco roman and not hebraic…furthermore it is Christianity who has the concept wrong that messiah or mashiyach means savior one to do for sins while Hebrews view messiah as one to deliver them from the oppressive nations around them a military political leader…..we have been lied to but the Most High is revealing truth to those who seek it sincerely with all thier heart..those who are humble and want to do as The Most High says and dont want to be caught up in this confusion called Religion

      • HOTTEDD_TURF

        MOST IMPORTANTLY THE MOST HIGH SPECIFICALLY SAID TO WORSHIP HIM ALONE NO OTHER…THERE IS NO SAVIOR BESIDES HIM NONE CREATED WITH HIM OR AFTER HIM..JUST HIM ALONE…SO WE HAVE BEEN STUCK IN IDOLATRY..SO DONT LOOK FOR THIS JESUS TO COME THROUGH THE CLOUDS HE NEVER EXISTED THERE IS NO HISTORICAL EVIDENCE HE WALKED THE SANDS OF PALESTINE BUT CHRISTIANS WILL SEE ALL YOU NEED IS FAITH….FAITH WHICH IS WITHOUT EVIDENCE..PROOF..I COULD NOT ACCEPT THIS AT FIRST WHEN I FOUND OUT THIS SAVIOR CONCEPT WAS TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM THE WAY OF THE MOST HIGH BUT I DID MY RESEARCH PUT IT TO THE TEST AND CONCLUDED IT IS MADE UP…SO I DROPPED The idol “jesus” further more the letter J is only 16 century so J cant be in th name if there was a savior…names dont change……..its left to everyone to seek truth and stop following crowd..question the world! Sins were forgiven numerous times without shedding blood..just return and you be forgiven stop the evil stop the sin and you be forgiven 2nd chronicles 7:14

      • chercher

        The Old Testament was wrritten in Hebrew and Aramaic. The New Testament was written in Greek because at the time Greek was like an international language (like English is today) and most people used it because it was accurate in expression and beautiful in sound. Prior to Jesus’ coming, Jerasulem was occupied by the Romans who had also conquered the Greeks. The Romans adopted a lot of the customs of the Greeks. You can’t change History to suit yourself. The Romans and Greeks kept excellent records. Caesar who was before Jesus’ time, did he exist? He wasn’t mentioned in the Old Testament either. But the same Historical Records that recognized Caesar, also recorgnized Jesus.
        Now let me say this. God had choosen the Jewish people as his people to receive his favors and blessings. However, he did make a covenant with Abraham that from him would come all the nations of the world.
        Now I get your point that there is a Supreme God, and many people confuse Jesus as God. Now in the beginning when God decided to make man Gen. 1:26….”Then God said.’Let Us make man in Our image according to Our likeness.”….Who were the “Our” and “Us” that he was speaking to..?
        If there is no Jesus (Yeshua) where do we stand? When Moses predicted Jesus’ coming and the prophet Isaiah on numerous times predicted both His and John the Baptist’s birth written in Hebrew was this a misinformation.?
        And aren’t the Jews expecting a Messiah to come to earth to deliver them, just not Jesus? Didn’t Jesus told the Jews that God had given him power on earth to forgive sin causing them to kill him.
        Prior to Jesus’ coming, it was saving the “circumcised” only, but Jesus came to save both Jews and Gentiles.
        If there is no Jesus, do you expect another or how do you see this panning out. Because Jews aren’t even saying that Jesus didn’t exist, only that he is not the promised Messiah.
        So when did something written in one language true and the other in a different language not true.

        All those Apostles who were martyred and their deaths recorded…..all lies….

      • HOTTEDD_TURF

        Jesus is an invention get over it…we have been lied to…i suggest u watch Caesars messiah the roman conspiracy to invent jesus DVD…..u have to be open to truth and be unbiased .willing to put to test and try validate what youveben told your whole life is true….the so called prophecies are misapplied..most arent even prophecies…Isaiah speaks of no virgin birth the context shows two Kings coming against Ahaz and The Most Highsending Isaiah and his son to Ahaz to tell him take comfort what the kings are planning wont be successful…..any blind fool can see the dishormony or differences among the gospels..they are a lie making bold assertions that prophet said this this was fulfilled……interesting that tells u to actually go back and see if the prophet really said that or if it was. Prophecy..a good example is Hosea where it says out of egypt I called my son supposedly the descent into egypt by mary and Joseph..looking at hosea it was referring to Israel…when israel was a child out of egypt I called my son…..all lies taken out of context…we have been fooled..Jesus no J was until 16century so if there was a savior he would not be named Jesus names dont.change…..seek truth do thy diligent research prove all things..new testament is a false system of worship to replace the Creators true . way…2nd chronicles 7:14 is the message

  • Dorrick A Bess

    Not a big fan of these guys but I know most of them feel they too big for the law and can do anything and getaway with it because of their celebrity status especially here in the States…So i feel if him did the Crime he should do his time and if him didn’t well me sorry for him…

  • Earlyb

    Earlier a man said, “there was no vid of him killing anybody!!” HELLO?!!! The phone recordings and conversations were admissible in court! Recording of his and his accomplices and voice matching was enough to convict him! To me, if anybody is STILL saying this murderer should be set free, are condoning this act of murder! This is why Jamaica is f*cked up! For this man that does not even believe in god and calls himself the ‘World Boss’ and trying to put himself as a leader of the world!!! Basically him saying he is god!!! He should get another 35 years for that, another 15b years for stupidity and throw another 15 years to round it up to 100 years! I was always a fan of his music but now, i have deleted everything i own from him! I don’t support murder in any case!

    • Lyric

      *Roll eyes* you sound stupid.. go have several seats. the trial it over you getting worked up for too much.

      • shanae martell

        something wrong with that man are something kmft

      • Porchia

        Think u shud read Earlyb’s comment again as he is only getting worked up because of idiots behaviour about kartel being innocent

    • Porchia

      Sick people about nothing else better to do and I’m sure they could use they time bettering themselves. Apart from the evidence you pointed out….The main witness who was bricking it (scared shyte) saw lizard motionless body in kartels home while he and kartel left to go hospital for a dog bite…that put kartel in the frame and makes him an accomplice to the crime. The murderer was committed in his house…that makes him an accomplice….The text messages about lizard is now mince meat…forget police tampering with phone, there was more evidence to reach a guilty verdict and I hope he don’t dwell on getting out if he is granted an appeal because I don’t think he will win so he had better accept his sentence and anything would be a bonus…i never like to see innocent people locked up and I’m aware many innocent people are locked up and that is sad but in kartels case his incarceration is justified….And Btw fans please stop saying no body found so he’s not guilty. ..you don’t need a body to have a trial or to be found guilty …Once the evidence is there

      • Chuckoff

        Yes that’s what the witness claims… U don’t know because u were not there. PERiOD so stop jumping to conclusions yuh chat toooooooooo much gwaan mine yuh pickney

      • chercher

        Portia is correct. In his unsworn testimony Kartel said that both men did not come to his house that day, yet Campbell said that the eye witness was there, but he had dropped williams off on the way. Did you hear the girlfriend in court say she received these text from the deceased that Kartel was going to kill him and to call the police? I am sure Williams is a murderer too, but there is a law that the citizens made that you cannot take another’s life and Kartel broke that rule and even if he didn’t actually do the killing himself, he is guilty of it because if it wasn’t for him that man would still be alive.

    • Chuckoff

      So u can’t separate an artists personal lives from their music?? And what if he killed someone on the downlow and never got caught would u still be listening to his music??? Yes so don’t deny ur love for it dwl u can’t avoid it either …. Kartel in a di 80s kartel in a di 90s etc etc KARTEL RUNS DI PLACE!! Yuh need fi cool dung man…. Life is short go listen to ur favorite artist vybz kartel cuz his music will always be in ur blood now … Don’t deny the vibessssssssss

    • Chuckoff

      They want him dead …. Them tooooooooooooooooo wiiiiiiiicked enuh!!!!! CHUH

  • replacement killer

    His defence team which is considered to be the best didn’t represent the case as it should, I feel kartel could have done better if he was representing himself.
    Anyway mi fren Daddy Vic use to sey prison neva mek fi dawg…. It mek fi me and you……

    • Tweley

      This is why you’re not a lawyer

    • chercher

      Prison is actually made for people breaking the law so if your’e intending on doing that you will eventually end up there like Kartel. Now, speaking about his defense, there is hardly much they could do….yes they did their job by trying to make the Jury disbelieve the evidence, but it was so overwhelming that they couldn’t overcome it. If someone told you that John stole an apple, you can choose to believe or disbelieve whether the person is credible or not, but when you see John actually stole the apple then you know for sure that it is a fact. Kartel video taped this act perhaps to use it in a music video later for bragging rights, but it came back to bite him in the butt.

      kartel is 73 years old you need to find a new god for yourself and stop defending yesterdays news he gone and noone jealous of shet all that money and fame look where it gt him cant even see his s class lol

      • Chuckoff

        Even if his fame and money is gone his talent still exists and he has accomplished SO much thus far… He is a musical genius and that will NEVER change …. So there is still a lot to be jealous of if u think about it he was once at the very top did u get there yet?? Oh and he’s ur girlfriends favorite dj (present tense) ;)

  • karlos

    What a plot to hang an innocent soul

    • S.S

      His definitely not innocent, his paying for something only him and God knows

      • Ross Margarette

        That’s stupid you think god helps everyone where is god in Africa where was god in the slavery days where is god in jamaica the whole police force are murders how many souls have they taking and where was god the devil runs jamaica

  • Rebellious

    What type of evidence was being filed instead of an ‘text message’ that was being sent. Where is this man body? What type of evidence can be shown that Vybz Kartel and all the rest really killed this man? And if they all commit the crime why is there than vybz kartel was sentence the most in prison? Its pretty obvious that this was not a fair case.

    • S.S

      Can you honestly believe he didnt have anything to do with lizards death? Lizards gf and sister were paid by the police to sit in court crying n lie about everything. I personally wish he was on the road but I think he did it so he took a life or helped take one so we need to stop him taking another till he meets Jah to explain himself to the real world Boss

    • Porchia

      LET ME SPELL IT OUT TO YOU. ..1. YOU DONT NEED A BODY TO CONVICT AND WE ARE NOT GOING TO FIND ONE COS PART OF THE EVIDENCE WAS LIZARD IS NOW MINCE MEAT…2. PART OF THE EVIDENCE..ON THE DAY OF THE KILLING KARTEL GOT BITTEN BY HIS DOG AND HIMSELF AND THE MAIN WITNESS LEFT KARTEL HOME TO ATTEND HOSPITAL LEAVING LIZARDS BODY MOTIONLESS THE FLOOR. 3. THE MURDER WAS CONVICT ED IN KARTELS HOUSE. 4. KARTELS HOUSE WAS BURNT DOWN TO GET RID OF EVIDENCE. JUST THESE ALONE KARTEL IS AN ACCOMPLICE TO MURDER. IT DONT MATTHRWS IF KARTEL WASNT THERE WHEN LIZARD WAS CHOPPED UP…KARTEL ALLREADY ENVOLVED AND IT WOULDN’T SURPRISE ME IF THE ORDER TO MINCE HIM DIDNT COME FROM KARTEL…YOU ALL NEED TO STUDY EVIDENCE AND STOP DWELLING ON TAMPERED PHONE.. KARTEL GOT MORE OF A SENTENCE BECAUSE THE JUDGE THINK AND KNOW HE IS THE RING LEADER…THE WURLL BOSS LOL THAT WHAT YOU GET FOR BEING IN CHARGED :P

      • Chuckoff

        U think u got it alllllllll figured out don’t cha

  • #Wedontgivafk

    3 sets of ppl in jamaica right now #idiots saying free world boss- # him deserve fi get 4 life sentence and christians dont give a fk which one are you

  • just a voice

    As we all know, this case had many problems with it! It should have been thrown out of the courts? In many other countries YES it would have, but it was not! What’s done, is done! The only way that Kartel or anyone can prove his innocents if for someone to find Clive “Lizard” Williams and bring him out in to the public for all to see.

  • Taniel Sevenz Young

    u cant convict a man n u dnt have a body. it goes to show that Jamaica justice system is lame

    • straw876

      so if you witness a man kill your relative and him throw him in a car back and go dispose of him at sea , body can’t be found ,would they have a case against that killer ? just asking…….

      • Chuckoff

        But that’s irrelevant because there was no witness just mr chow and it took him 7 days to testify…. It’s not the same situation

  • crime

    I am a fan Gaza ,without kartel a lot of rap rite now. F##k dancehall the system an all who love wat happen to the world boss uno has things a come all a we way your coulda worst Dan Mrs Palmer …..wish bad Fe no man mine u end up like lizard ….Gaza Fe life..

  • HOTTEDD_TURF

    Bawl like gal in courtroom you shoulda llow the evil and concentrate on the music….u had talent to the extreme but wasted it…..very promising individual who let it all go to waste..smh #wastedtalent

    • Chuckoff

      Ur right men should have no emotions !!! We should be zombies …. Crying is for girls……… Grow up . Actin like u wouldn’t cry shiiit is real anyone would..

      • ZiggyZagZag

        naaaw! Real men take it like a man, and don’t cry when faced with a life sentence. If he’s hard enough to murder a man, then he should be hard enough not to bawl like a gal in court.

  • crimenopay

    Vybz Kartel should be taken to the back of the court house and be executed. that stupid piece of crap!

    • China

      Why u no execute u mother dog

  • crimenopay

    Vybz Kartel is a bad egg! I hope the security forces clean them out like mosquitoes. Vybz Kartel and his entourage are very destructive for Jamaica. Listen up security forces! Shoot to kill! They are the ones destroying my country. Kill dem and bun dem! We have no use for criminals and murderers in Jamaica. They are hurting our tourist industry.
