Last week the Vendetta deejay stunned Kartel and Popcaan fans when he released a new diss track “City” aimed at the two former Gaza deejays.
Kartel, who is currently serving a life sentence for murder, is telling his people that Alkaline is just another new artist trying to take root in his own image.
“Alkaline is just another new artist trying to imitate Vybz Kartel to gain more success,” a rep for the incarcerated deejay told Urban Islandz. “What ever happened to originality. These young guys ain’t bringing anything new to dancehall musically. Addi bleach and him run go bleach to, Addi deejay about slackness and him run go do it and now him turn around trying to diss the deejay.”
Kartel’s rep also told us that he has no plans to release any diss songs aimed at Alkaline.
“A Vybz Kartel and Alkaline lyrical feud would only benefit one man, so it’s not worth the effort,” his rep said.
Vybz Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, has been behind bars since 2011 and has managed to stay relevant in dancehall despite his incarceration.
On another note, Alkaline had one of the biggest singles in dancehall last year “Champion Boy.”
