Beenie Man Blast Vybz Kartel Fans, ‘Dancehall Not In Prison’

Beenie Man is making one thing clear to Vybz Kartel massive fan base and that is dancehall is not in prison.

The dancehall legend sat down for an interview with Nightly Fix where he opened up about dropping a new album and the current state of the genre.

Beenie Man Explains Beef With Shabba Ranks At Concert

“No one man never run dancehall,” Beenie Man said. “Music bigger than Kartel, music bigger than me, stop the foolishness.”

Beenie Man added that he was offended to be told that dancehall is dead without Vybz Kartel.

“So basically what you’re saying is that dancehall music lock up in prison,” Beenie added. “That is foolishness… Kartel fans be Kartel fans and leave the music alone. Stick to talking about Kartel and don’t talk about the music. Because if dancehall locked up in jail then why the rest of the other artists them on tour can somebody please tell me? Why music is still playing? Why me have hit songs today if dancehall lock up in jail?”

Back in 2013, Vybz Kartel famously stated from behind bars that dancehall is in jail and that all the other artists are just pathetic.

“Dancehall is in jail,” Vybz Kartel said.

“Since I’ve been in jail, reggae has taken over because it’s a refreshing alternative to dancehall for the young kids who realise the artistes of dancehall are just recycling Kartel lyrics and flow. It’s pathetic.”

The dancehall hitmaker got a lot of bashing from several other dancehall artists who disagreed with his statement. Nevertheless, Kartel was unapologetic about his statement that dancehall is dead without his presence.

Vybz Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, has been behind bars since 2011 and is could be there for the rest of his life after he was handed down a life sentence with hard labor last year.

  7. Finally somebody speaks the truth. How in the fook is a prisoner going to rule dancehall when he can’t even get out and step on a stage??!
    Kartel fans need to leave dancehall alone. They worship a convicted murderer as if he’s the 2nd coming of Jesus.

  8. is it safe for me to big up worldboss and beenie? or nah

    • Yes it is safe so me ah gwaan big up buju banton aka gargamel cause him did it on both side reggae and dance hall.

    • Beenie, yes. The murdering summabeach fartel should be spat upon at every opportunity. Those who kill ghetto youth should not be placed on a pedestal and exalted.
      Get it?

      • No body = No evidence = No murder. Man was telling truth about corruption in the JA system and so they lock him up to shut him up

      • Your argument doesn’t even hold water. LOL!
        No body. No problem. Testimony and phone records got him life in prison. There’s only one way to shut a man up. “Dead men tell no tales” If they wanted to shut him up, as you say, shouldn’t Kartel be dead and buried by now??
