A rep for the former Portmore Empire boss told Urban Islandz that the self-proclaim Worl’Boss is stronger than ever.

“Addi [Vybz Kartel] is holding up strong in the face of this injustice,” the rep told us. “All this talk of suicide are false rumors people aligned to the system are spreading in the media. All clean heart people know that Di Teacha innocent and the fans them support stronger than ever. We are appealing this conviction and we are confident Teacha will walk free.”

The rep also told us that Vybz Kartel’s baby mother Tanesha “Shorty” Johnson visited him in prison earlier this week.

Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, along with Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Andre St John, and Kahira Jones were all convicted of the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.

The Crown says the convicted men beat Lizard to death on August 16, 2014 at Kartel’s house in Havendale over two missing guns.

All four men were handed down with life sentences. Vybz Kartel will be eligible for parole in 35 years, Shawn Storm and Andre St John in 25 years, while Kahira Jones will have to wait 30 years before parole.

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

  18. Kartel Batty ad di new ramping shop!!!! Kartel you gwan get ramped!!!

    • your mada gettn ramped on visit, queen king fish!!!!

    • Kartel ain’t afraid of no body

      • Thats the same reason why the 10 jurors and the judge were also not afraid of Kartel . You get what you give in this world and its not good to be known or portrayed as being a bad man no fear anything or anyone type of person. There is always someone who has more authority, is bigger and more powerful than you in this world, so never go around thinking that if you self proclaim and name yourself the “worl boss” you are now in reality the World Boss.

      • U must believe in santa clause too.

      • Lolll the killer is here what’s up girl? Kill em softly

        Santa has no history of….? take a pic next time he come down ya chimney , then ill believe all the accusations u turn to facts bout the Boss.clearly,he runs your world 😉

      • You welcome but I would rather have me or my children continue finding joy in the fictional santa clause than in the ever so human murderous self proclaimed worl boss. How come when I replied to you ross margarette was the first and fastest to reply to me, are you one in the same or are you related ?

      • Lmao -this is a public forum yaknow.You are strugglin with concepts of assumption vs fact , cant help u till u figure that out,so ima just say u and Paula llewelyn are same person.

      • You must be gay

      • Yup! I’m gay, Ina. That’s why I won’t do white gals like you. I much prefer my African gals over your kind any day.

      • So you are by sexual

      • LMAO!!!! That’s bi-sexual, ya idiyaat! Where did you go to school…in America?

      • Maybe I should go back to school it’s never to late I hear new jersey has hot girls

      • Try to stay out of the panties, bwoy. You’ll learn more, and won’t get stuck with a new name, like babydaddy. Plus, Jersey is too tough for the likes of you. They will tear you apart and feed the rest to their dogs.

      • Dwl,shatap u lil jerk, jerz aint brooklyn.

      • Ha! By Sexual huh? What’s that ? A Double Aunt Andre?

      • We are related yo????

      • Yep

      • Its funny to hear people call me Ross

      • “Its funny to hear people call me Ross”

        …but wait! Blackbeauty_1 responds to Ina Gotovina, and you shoot back with that??! Isn’t Ross your name? What should we call you? Ina, maybe??

        That’s the problem with sockpuppets and stupid people. They always get their creations mixed up.


      • So your real name is ziggyzagzag?

      • What is real in cyberspace?! You can refer to me by that nym, but you’ll never know the name on my driver’s license. Ya feel mi?

      • Do you even have a driver’s license? I haven’t head from you in a few days did your mom take away your computer?

      • LMAO!!! Mom can’t even turn on my machine, much less take it away. Unlike you, I don’t live in my mom’s house. I got one of my own that I pay a mortgage on.
        You know…big people tings!

      • If you say so

      • I don’t say so…it’s my damn bank that says so.

      • Well I’m 100% sure that I got more money than you home boy

      • Accusations by a corrupt police force

      • What are you talking about ? You don’t like kartel but it has nothing to do with badmind listen its just music look at Eminem DMX 50cent you think they really go around killing people music is like the wwe you take it to serious just like every dumb a-s hater you name yourself blackbeauty dose it mean you are really a blackbeauty no it doesn’t its just a name

    • Listen king bit-h just because you would bend over don’t mean everyone would bend over

      • yeah! We know! Some like you just fall to their knees and start slobbering wood.

      • Dude this ain’t a batty man site

      • Pull up your pants, then!

      • If you are looking for a man wrong site

      • Yeah, I know! There’s only pvssybwoys like you up in here.

      • So now you are saying that I’m a man?

      • Nope! I’m calling you a tranny.

      • Good one lol

      • Getting back to the real deal…why do you think Kartel is innocent? More specifically, what has you so convinced he had nothing to do with Lizard’s murder??

      • So you want to talk like a grown up ok the jamaican police are killers we all know that kartel was getting to big I mean he was making alot of money for someone who didn’t have a visa to leave the country bleaching his skin tattoos and tv show street vybz rum and they knew that he was writing a book about jamaica they had to take him down if you notice every paper tears him down even the news its him against the system they know he is innocent and he will win his appeal and they know he will but they will put him behind bars for as long as they can is already 2 and a half years trust me its a set up stop hating on him for a second put your feelings aside and look at the case

      • I have looked at the case. He was found guilty of the crime irrespective of the murderous Jamaican police force. It was the preponderance of evidence which has him doing 35 years to life.
        What you’ve told me is nothing more than conspiracy nutcase crap that can’t hold much water.
        Look, if you know Jamaica so well, then you know there’s bigger, badder, more dangerous men than him on the island. Why are they not on trial for murder??! …and the bigger question remains; of all the doors to knock on in Jamaica why did they knock on Kartel’s door?
        If he was a legitimate business man he would be on the outside making money. Instead he’s a convicted murderer doing some serious time. Try looking at the facts of the case without your blinders on.

      • Guest, are you like 11 years old? I asked because you sound like an illiterate 11 year old. Was Kartel making more money than the djs before him who had visas and who were very popular abroad? How many of them are in prison for murder? Are all the other bleachers and tattooed artists and influential Jamaicans behind bars too. Maybe you are unaware of how many books and documentaries there are about the negative side of Jamaica. Are the writers and producers of these in prison for murder too? Did the ‘system’ get them too? You need to stop living in denial…THEM MURDERING B….CHES ARE GUILTY!

      • Kartel gonna bend over for the next 30 years!

      • I don’t think so

    • So mean, innocent people go to jail everday. Pray you wont one day. Karma is a bit–.

    • Innocent people do get convicted every day even in USA every day because prosecutors hide evidence.

    • Kartel’s trial was a big joke for JA justice system.

      • Weee a de man , chat it Wee , Wee dunce but smarter than Shawn Storm , good job justice system . Witnesses need to follow our new hero Wee , let me get a Wee , Wee Wee.

    • Sounds like you know what you are talking about

      • It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know a puppy like Kartel is going to get eaten by big dogs in prison, son.

  19. He will walk just a matter of time … Note too people don’t let bad mind get you cause those people are broke and envious of what they don’t have stay strong vybz kartel … World boss

  20. Peace maker.....

    Every judger is a sinner. No one is perfect! !!! People use this as a opportunity to come and lash out on each other and the say its free speech.lol
    full time now we start posting some positive message on here to help our brothers and sisters.AND THE KIDS OF THIS GENERATION. JUST SAYING……..

  21. Kartel is a strong man for not taking the deal i believe that he is 100% innocent

    • Shawn storm was the one who get the deal. And he didn’t refuse because as you said he is strong. He would be a sell out, and of course they would kill him whether in prison or when him get out. Him have to play it hard.

  22. wtf man killed him in august 2014 snh

  23. Stay strong kartel

  24. kartel he might aswell that foooool …….

  25. kartel made his bed now he must lay on it,all him have to do is repent of his sins and keep strong cause i know him must have some regets about some path he choose in his life so let us stop throw stones(hurtful words)and just pray for him cause jail house is not a fun place.We all know when you break the creator laws and the earthly rules the punishment is drastic.

  26. We all know the jamaican judicail system is corrupt, and their were numerous inadequacies from the prosecution. Yet at the same time his attorney’s did not do a stellar job they etiher which allow the prosecutor to get this conviction. Children did we hear anything about the defense team calling up any character witness or alibi on kartels behalf? Second we all or calling for kartel’s freedom, but what about just for Lizard? Kartel did not do himself any good with those damning voice notes. As a grown man with 7 children what are you doing hanging around those idiots? I advice every one to take a step back and don’t get caught in with this whole kartel situation, because kartel could care less about any us, and if he did it he will have to answer to god the creator.

  27. Check Out New Vybz Kartel Aka Addi Innocent- My Love – April 2014

  28. FWB! I wasn’t there..but the trial was a sham. The Gaza 4 need to be set free. If this happened in America the tampered evidence alone would of let all of them walk. Voice notes can be altered as well as text from a cell phone. Jamaican government officials have already proven to be corrupt. Free di general, Gaza mi seh!

  29. World boss a fool those guys are talented n look what happen now they use the music business to cover up their dirty evil ways

  30. Police used kartel phone hv nothing to do with the fact he kill the man.

      • Not saying vybz should commit suicide but according to you Talking About A Fellow Jamaican Who Is Convicted Of Double Murder One Was Thrown Out But I Think He Did It Is Bad…When Did It Become Ok To murder/kill someone? when???

      • Ppl like you with your ignorant mentality why jamaica is in the state that it is in with crime and voilence. You lack morality and basic human decency. Kartel had a bright futureahead of him, he chose to give up everything over 2 guns that could easily be replaced unlike his freedom. He was a fool and you a idiot for supporting his shegry.
