Reggae Grammy Award winning producer, Lee Scratch Perry, one of the living legends of reggae music believes Vybz Kartel is the best deejay ever out of Jamaica.
Veteran entertainer and producer, Lee “Scratch” Perry, who is also responsible for the success of Bob Marley posted a video online giving props to Vybz Kartel. The producer hails Vybz Kartel as the greatest deejay out of Jamaican but also warns the deejay to repent and change his sinful ways.
Perry says he loves Kartel and hope the convicted murderer will get another chance as he is the best.
“Hello to you, Kartel, Jamaica’s best deejay ever on the reggae and dancehall scene. This is Lee Scratch saying to you Kartel, I know you are not feeling nice and I know you are not feeling good where you are, but we are praying that you can come out one of these times and change your ways and repent so that you can have another chance because you were one of the best deejays to ever come out of Jamaica. So, love, Kartel from Lee Scratch Perry,” the Reggae Grammy Award winner legend said.
Vybz Kartel is currently serving a life sentence for the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams. The deejay’s appeal case was heard in July of 2018 and an appeal decision is expected in early 2019. If Kartel does not win his appeal, he will have to serve 35 years before he is eligible for parole, at which point he will be in his 70s.
