Masicka Agrees Vybz Kartel Is The Bob Marley of Dancehall

Is Vybz Kartel the Bob Marley of dancehall?

Masicka scored one of the biggest hits of his career this year “InfraRed” with Vybz Kartel, but his admiration for the incarcerated dancehall icon runs deeper than just dancehall. In fact, they both went to the same high school Calabar and are both from Portmore. The Genahsyde leader sat down for a candid interview with Tim Westwood recently where he opened up about working with the Worl’Boss.

“Definitely Vybz Kartel is one of the most talented artists out of Jamaica, so it was crazy,” Masicka said. “His work ethics is crazy, Vybz Kartel put in a lot of work and he is one of the greatest artists out of Jamaica, so to even get that track you understand am hail from Calabar and hail from Portmore, Vybz Kartel show we a lot of respect.” Tim Westwood then added that Kartel is the Bob Marley of dancehall, to which he agreed.

Masicka also spoke briefly about his ongoing feud with Aidonia, telling Westwood that the 4thGenna deejay is afraid of a lyrical confrontation with him. “It’s just bad mind because we as the young youths come up and we are doing a lot so it’s not everybody going to show us love,” the dancehall deejay said. “They are just afraid to get into a lyrical confrontation.”
