If you’re a fan of Ishawna and her new single “Equal Rights” don’t get too excited because Vybz Kartel will not be jumping on the remix or there will be no duet with the Gaza Boss. Rumors of the so-called “freaky song” collaboration have been making the rounds online this week. A rep for the incarcerated deejay exclusively told Urban Islandz that there is no truth to the story. “I personally asked Addi (Vybz Kartel) about it and he flat out said no, so I don’t know where this rumor came from,” our source insist. “I don’t know if they will ever collaborate in the future, but as of now, there is no such collaboration in the works. Keep the boss name off that Equal Rights something.”
Ishawna manages to get a firm grip on dancehall over the last few weeks with her raunchy new single “Equal Rights (Shape Of You Remix)” where she sings about males in Jamaica satisfying females by giving them head. Vybz Kartel has his fair share of raunchy singles with a similar theme and even got chided by Bounty Killer earlier this week at a stage show in Portland. You don’t have to ask if Gaza fans weren’t pushing back against the dancehall legend for his stance.
Vybz Kartel maybe the only artist on the planet who is behind bars and still very much relevant. The Gaza Boss has been incarcerated since 2011 but it’s almost as if he never spent a day behind bars. Not only did he won the most award at this year’s Youth View Awards, but he also released a song or two almost every week since the start of the year. Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, is currently serving a life sentence for murder. A judge recently set his appeal trial date for February 19, 2018.
