A short audio of Vybz Kartel singing Alkaline smash hit single “Block and Delete” has gone viral on social media.
It’s no secret that Vybz Kartel is not a fan of Alkaline and even as recently as last weekend released a new single taking some shots at the Vendetta deejay. Urban Islandz wasn’t able to ascertain the authenticity of the leaked audio, but some dancehall fans are convinced it’s Vybz Kartel voice singing the lyrics.
Sources inside the Gaza exclusively told us that although Vybz Kartel thinks Alkaline copied his image and style, he still thinks that he is a talented deejay. “He (Alkaline) is a talented youth and Addi (Vybz Kartel) said that, but that doesn’t excuse the fact that he copied Addi entire style and image,” we’re told. “Outside of that he has some good songs and some talent but it’s the lack of originality we have a problem with.”
Our sources couldn’t say if the leaked audio is authentic or not. Take a listen below and be the judge. Vybz Kartel and Alkaline are two of the top artists in dancehall over the last year and both deejays are showing no signs of slowing down. Despite being incarcerated since September of 2011, Kartel manages to stay relevant thanks to a massive supply of new music.
