According to the attorneys for caged deejay, Vybz Kartel, the world boss could be free any day now. The attorneys presented an air tight case in Kartel’s appeal and it is only a matter of time before the judges overturns the deejay’s conviction.
Vybz Kartel’s freedom should be a concern to every dancehall artiste because even from behind bars he was one of, if not the most popular dancehall artistes. So one can only imagine what Kartel has in store once he gets his freedom. Some dancehall fans believe that Alkaline was borrowing Kartel’s style and flow and will have to return it once Kartel is freed.
One artiste that is not concerned about Vybz Kartel’s eminent release from prison is Popcaan. The unruly one says regardless of what Kartel does, he Popcaan, is going to always be on top; this includes if Kartel even hates on him for his success. Staying on top in spite of his haters is something Popcaan says he learned from Vybz Kartel.
“Even if Vybz Kartel hates Popcaan today, I will be forever on top because mi learn that from him,” Popcaan said in a BBC interview.
The year was a very successful year for Popcaan including Drake announcing at Popcaan’s Unruly Fest that Popcaan was now signed to OVO music.
Vybz Kartel is still in prison awaiting the result of his appeal but his attorneys believe that we can expect him to be free any day now.
