Vybz Kartel and JayCrazie drop off a new song, “Long Live Jamaica,” to celebrate Hero’s Day.
Despite his incarceration, Vybz Kartel continues to dominate dancehall’s airwaves to levels not seen by any other artistes. The Worl’Boss has a song for every season, including this new track, which arrives just in time for Jamaica’s Hero’s Day holiday. Today, we saw Sean Paul getting the Order of Distinction for his contribution to Jamaica’s music culture. Kartel has continued to make his contribution to the culture from behind bars.
“Yesterday me did a trouble Miss Brown / See a likkle old woman a hustle through town / Wid a big bag look at her face / A juvenile say mommy let me help out / Travel to the bus sit down, him get up and walk back in a the crowd / Me feel proud so me affi say it out loud / Jamaica land we love,” Kartel deejay.
The artwork for the single features an iconic photo of Vybz Kartel collaged with some historical images of some well-known figures in Jamaica’s history, including Paul Bogle, Nanny, Marcus Garvey, and Usain Bolt.
