Vybz Kartel has been dominating dancehall airwaves for the last couple of years despite being incarcerated since 2011.

Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, was found guilty of murder and was sentenced to life imprisonment with the possibility of parole after serving 35 years. He and his co-convicts including his protege Shawn Storm have all maintained their innocence.

The deejay has filed an appeal.
