The reggae singer was speaking during an interview with Vice’s Noisey Jamaica when he made the scathing statement about the incarcerated dancehall hitmaker.
A rep for Vybz Kartel told Urban Islandz that the deejay simply brushed it off when he heard the news, referring to Chronixx as just another local artist using his name for publicity.
“Chronixx had no reason to make such statement about Vybz Kartel because they never met, never spoke to each other, and have never worked together,” Kartel’s reps told us this morning. “Clearly he is just another badmind artist using the artist name to get some sort of hype and publicity.”
During his Noisey interview, the “Here Comes Trouble” singer did point out that Vybz Kartel did a lot of good but still lost his way and became what he calls a “cannibal.”
“Vybz Kartel himself has done a lot of good things in life, I must say,” Chronixx said. “Gangsterism, cannibalism… because Vybz Kartel overtime became a cannibal. When you listen to his music it is very cannibalistic.”
Watch a snippet of the interview below.
Chronixx was perhaps speaking about Vybz Kartel murder conviction in 2014 where evidence points to the deejay and his three co-accused chopping up their victim, Clive “Lizard” Williams into pieces before disposing of his remains at sea.
“It became so pleasant to the human that there is a thing within us that crazes chopping up people and beheading people and cut out a man inside,” Chronixx added.
Chronixx didn’t stopped there and even used Vybz Kartel’s hit single “Kill Dem All And Done” to drive home his point.
“When you see how youth react to a song that says go and kill everybody, kill dem all and done and everybody excited,” the “Who Knows” singer said.
Don’t expect a collaboration from Vybz Kartel and Chronixx anytime soon.
