According to the word on the streets of Kingston, Vybz Kartel got a severe beating by fellow prisoners after they blame the deejay for getting their cellphones and other contrabands confiscated by prison warders.
The beating stems from an incident last week when Vybz Kartel joined dancehall producer Rvssian’s Instagram live. The prison warders were tipped off and Kartel along with other prisoners got their cells raided and multiple contrabands seized.
It is said that the other prisoners were not very happy about Kartel’s selfishness and rewarded the jail boss with a sound beating.
“The man them have them phone where they can keep in touch with their family members and now because of Kartel they no long have that, so they gave him a nice beating,” a man whose brother also got his phone confiscated told the Jamaican Observer.
Although the beating was a good one, it did not require any hospital visit as prison warders were able to intervene and put a stop to it before it got to that point.
“Yea man! I hear him lucky the warders stepped in when they did. A cellphone in prison is the closest thing to freedom so prisoners not happy when they lose that, they were very angry,” the source said.
Vybz Kartel is serving a life sentence for the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams and is currently awaiting the verdict on his appeal of the charges.
