Alkaline is like the new man running dancehall and Vybz Kartel is like the man who has been at the helm for the last decade. This year will be particularly interesting given that the Vendetta deejay received 10 Youth View Awards nominations while the Gaza boss received 7 nods. Lets not forget that Kartel did it despite being incarcerated for the last six years.
Spice made compelling case for her “Romping Shop” collaborator during a recent performance telling the crowd in a freestyle that Alkaline is simply not in Vybz Karte;’s class. “In a dancehall everybody want to be the boss / Talk what me feel this is try not my fault / Alkaline no reach in the Teacha class,” Spice deejay as the crowd erupts. She also shout free World Boss.
Kartel posted the clip on IG with an interesting caption paying homage the the dancehall diva’s thickness. “Muma say #FreeWorlBoss #2017 #GAZANATION Jah know muma u thick ee!”
