Best Jamaican Dancehall Artist

 

VYBZ KARTEL

Vybz Kartel (Adidja Azim Palmer) has been recognized as the best Jamaican dancehall artist the world has seen yet.

At an age of 39 Kartel is just now starting to fall off of the dancehall scene due to his convictions.

Vybz Kartel has also been deemed for many years as the King of the GAZA. GAZA is one of the two major Jamaican gangs.

One of Vybz Kartels rival gang rival leaders Mavado has also made a very big name for himself and the two have always clashed.

In 2013 Vybz Kartel was convicted of first degree murder and in 2014 sentenced to 35 years in prison without parole for he murder of several Gully gang members.

 

 

 

Hit songs such as "Ramping Shop" "Summertime" and "Clarks" have been spread across the world into top 100 charts.

 

Given the corruption of the Jamaican law system you cant take you eye off of Vybz Kartel, with his power he may be out of prison very soon.
