Vybz Kartel Dominating Dancehall Airwaves From Prison, Jail Can’t Slow Me Down

Vybz Kartel is still dominating dancehall airwaves from behind bars and the best is yet to come according to a rep for the incarcerated deejay.

Since his conviction and life sentence earlier this year, Vybz Kartel has been releasing a consistent supply of new music from behind prison walls. But some artists and industry personalities are accusing the deejay’s camp of saturating the airwaves.

New singles such as “Happy Pum Pum,” “Pretty Position, “Louis V,” and more are hot commodities in dancehall sessions and clubs locally and overseas.

A rep for the embattled dancehall told Urban Islandz that the best is yet to come.

“Vybz Kartel has been the hottest deejay in dancehall for the last decade and will continue to be for a long time to come even while in prison,” his rep told us.

“We have a huge catalog of previously recorded unreleased singles and we heard that some artists are complaining about Vybz Kartel saturating dancehall but all of that is just badmind and envy talking,” the rep added.

“Fans can look out for more singles and we are working on a double disc album for early next year.”

Vybz Kartel, born Adidja Palm, is currently waiting on his first court hearing since filing his appeal in May to overturn his murder conviction.

The “Dancehall Hero” deejay along with his protege Shawn Storm and close friends Andre St John and Kahira Jones were convicted in February of this year for the murder of their associate Clive “Lizard” Williams.

All four men are serving life sentences are will have to wait three decades for a chance at parole.

Last month Vybz Kartel attorneys filed a multimillion dollar lawsuit against former commissioner of police Owen Ellington claiming that the top cop damaged his reputation in the music industry when he made some scathing statement during a highly publicized interview on TVJ in April.

Kartel is also suing the TV station for negligence.

  7. gaza is not in portmore

    You stupid apes from portmore of a disgrace you talk about gaza and yet in the real gaza people are dying and the so called portmore gaza is not hitting the headlines in the world media

    • So instead of campaigning for the real gaza you choose to spend your time and energy attacking the portmore gaza (which is a waste of time for someone who is really concerned about the “real” gaza), what are you doing to help make a difference in the real gaza since its so important to you? for months I’ve seen you talking shyt, but I’ve never seen you mention anything constructive that you’ve done for the real gaza, and you’ve never offered any suggestions or proposals to anyone to do something beneficial. All you do is bash portmore gaza and nothing helpful for the real gaza, but you constantly have their name in your mouth, stop use them name fi hype up yuhself just because you have a personal vendetta against Adidja. You’re not doing anything for gaza so stop use them fi throw word.

      • gaza is not in portmore

        I have campaign about the real gaza your gaza isn’t the real real one that the difference you stupid Ape

      • Whatever, mi nuh response, go and spend your time & energy on the real real gaza and stop following the “nonreal” gaza, I dnt understand why you still take the time to check on “my” gaza when you obviously have more important issues to tend to. & I still haven’t seen how your bashing of portmore gaza has been helpful to the “real” gaza. but mi nuh inna nuh long talkin wid yuh anyhow

      • gaza is not in portmore

        I can’t understand what this ape is saying you admitted that the real gaza ain’t in portmore there no such place called portmore gaza it not on the map you dumb ape
