Vybz Kartel: “I Will Not Be Recording Music In Prison”

The debate over whether or not Vybz Kartel will be recording new music in prison is over.

Lawyers representing the dancehall star says he has no intentions of recording behind bars after carefully evaluating the proposals.

“He has no intention of recording while in custody,” Kartel’s lead attorney Tom Tavares-Finson said after the deejay was sentenced to life imprisonment last Thursday.

Tavares-Finson came to the conclusion after receiving a letter from the judge inquiring about whether or not Kartel should be allowed to make music in prison.

“That is the most ridiculous proposition I have ever heard that he [Kartel] should be given authority to record while in custody,” Tavares-Finson added. “The person was not convicted to do music, he was convicted to do hard labour.”

A rep for the former Portmore Empire head also told Urban Islandz that Kartel says he will not be recording new music in prison given the harsh treatment from the system.

“After the system finish tearing you down then they want to use you, so no Addi [Vybz Kartel] will not be recording new music to make more money for the system to tear down ghetto youths,” the rep told us.

Vybz Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Andre St John, and Kahira Jones were all given life sentences by a High Court judge on April 3, 2014.

Vybz Kartel will be eligible for parole in 35 years when he is 73 years old.

The four men were convicted of the August 16, 2011 murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams, who cops say was killed over two missing guns belonging to Vybz Kartel.

Williams body has yet to be found.

    • Tell the truth mate – you are a fu—ng bum who is mesmerized by black culture but not accepted. Thats why you stay hanging out on black websites – if you really were a white supremacist you are doing a sh– job and i bet your peers hate you. You are nothing – no more significant than a worm in the earth. …

    • Kersha Baptiste

    • Haha this clown is too funny. Hitler was a closet homosexual like yourself. Was you bullied, parents don’t love you? Suppressing the fact your a blatant queer who loves black people but scared to admit it. Don’t make me locate your IP address and show all your people your true inept disgusting hypocritical self
      Go pick up a educational book or a bible

  22. the dumbest statements have ever see since the verdict an the sentence look for clarity before come talk bredren…

  23. Worldboss Christopher Marshall

    Me nuh blame him don’t dweet a money di system want mek off him,mek dem go su– out dem mada

  24. Kartel is a sociopath he doesnt feel remorse he still as a laugh over lizarda family cause he’ll never say where’s the body &with all the damning evidence gaza fans are still denying the truth well until it comes to our front door certain things meansnothing to us .are ee do obcessed with his music yhat we would overlook his crime for our selfish reason just to hear his song artist comes & go you do the crime you serve the time .how stupid can ssomeone be to sing sbout his crimes & tape his doings just to watch it over &over & smile thats a sociopath

  25. That’s what you are a ape just like your mum and dad and Hitler is my hero he wanted a super human race and Jamaicans are sub human inbreds all your good for is killing each smoking cannabis and doing voodoo

  26. Instead of writing this fictional novela full of pseudo-freud like fkry, u coulda kept the option open that maybe he did not take the “deal ” because they actually ARE innocent?
    Go find YOUR daddy now, lil fag.

  27. Kartel is now old news, those in denial can remain in denial for atleast 35 years. No words, anger, anthems or slogans from his fans can ever change the reality of his predicament now, tomorrow and 35 years to come. The best now for those so loyal fans of Kartel and gangster wannabes is to accept reality and learn lessons from all this

  28. The evidence against Vybz et all is extremely convincing. I thought without a body they shouldn’t be convicted. The truth is there’s so much other evidence such as blood in Vybz house that this situation with the facts cannot be random. This is very serious. I’m not saying anyone is guilty…I’m just saying the evidence is extremely overwhelming.

    • Karen you are so right. I love dancehall & the music especially the dis tracks because I don’t take dem seriously but admire the way dem drop dem pon each other so quick, but truth is we can’t say him don’t do it because we wasn’t there. Again I say I just listened to the voicetapes on the link above & it’s convincing plus dem say in court him never even say is not mi voice u hear

  29. Smart move waiting for the appeal

    • Let me make one ting clear. Kartel, Gaza, Moved, Gully & all the rest are artist. Music is art but don’t make your fantasies rule your life cos the young get caught up in your hype. Kartel case is circumstantial without Lizard body but after I hear dem recording deh is Kartel give police the evidence to convict himself so to all die hard kartel fans… Listen the tape & talk di truth

  30. im glad He can’t make any more music what kind of society do we live in .right is right wrong is wrong the man a killer .yep pee nomore karel thank fu– real talk All that illiterate gazza crap .listen serve him right

  31. Great news at least the ape kartel can’t make any money he done the crime he must do the time and to all you so called Gaza fans you all a bunch of wankers just like gully just keep fighting each other I love it

    • Bleach face boi


    • I think you’re commenting on the wrong story

      • I think you go back to the jungle you stupid jungle bunny max is a wanker

      • Blah blah blah blah,, … bollocks – twat.

        Just say it with me “I..I..Wish ..I was black” – come on you can do it. Thats what you are actually saying with every comment. If you reply to this it means it is definitely true regardless of what you write.

      • The only white thing we used a toilet paper an a fi clean we a– wen we done sh– as hole sash

    • Hitler I think u r a very confused individual.
      You name yourself off the worst dictator who killed millions of Ashkenazi jews. maybe you should be commenting on some Israeli blog this is not the gaza in Palestine its a little group in jamaica. so Hitler you may need to find a Israel/Palestine blog.

    • WhyTF you calling yourself Hitler? and what do you mean “Ape”…you fu—ng fairy.

    • Blaq Heart President

      Hey bwoy guh su– yuh muma and cum off a the man name. Mi nuh knw if man a fuq u r wat enuh bt u fi mind how u a diss up d worlboss enuh. Cuz nuff a unu just a act tough an can’t do a thing. Suh u see the next time u a think fi diss kartel, go bruk inna u muma ocean-wide hole first!!!! Zn

    • Funny cause sense he’s been in jail, he’s been make money all over the globe…European’s love him! Kartel doesn’t have to record, by him being in jail makes him money.

      • Nick BNP Griffin

        I love monkeys who kill there own that’s why Jamaicans there not Kat sweet just a just a slag I don’t love vybz kartel music I can’t understand what he said he just a ape urban island website own are racist cowards themselves just like Christoper dunce Cokehead you see how easy it was to get that ape Jamaicans so gangsters are weak they never fight the neo nazis they scared they only brave when it comes to themselves.

  32. Boo Hoo…

  33. He’s a fool. In a bid to satisfy his not too straying far from their narrow viewpoint fans, (because too many of them, not all seem to be the only people who believe that he is not a narcissist , but a Ghetto Soul Rebel in the same vein as Bob Marley and Malcolm X), Vybz kartel/Adijah Palmer knows that in order to not look guilty (to those same fans) he will mash up himself to seem “authentic”. However, being the type who embodies “misery loves company”, he will do his very best to make sure that his co convicted sheg themselves, too. Shawn Storm is an idiot, par excellence. He had the chance to get off (with time already served), but he really did believe Kartel when he most likely said that the tactics that were used to collapse the case would work….and as a result, Storm wouldn’t have to take any plea. Well luk deh now! Him have a big twenty five years bid fi duh before him can even think of parole. One of the conditions being that confession and acceptance of culpability has to occur for it to happen.
    Still it has been interesting to see this this Gaza Empire seems to attract fans of the kind that look for justification of self serving narrow view points, the low self esteemed looking for a father figure outside of their own family, down low gay men (like Kartel), females whose only use is to fu–, freak and tief and tek beating and latent criminals. The Kartel fans with sense, love his music, whilst acknowledging that he has most definitely committed a crime. Obviously they have critical faculties that they are able to put to use. God bless them for their humility. Especially the ones who until evidence made its way, piece by piece into the media, were very “die hard”. They humbled themselves (with heartbreak) and stated that whilst they still like a kartel music, them “loose offa di boss”.

  34. alright now, seet deh. spirit still strong
