Today marks the 42nd Birthday of the one they call, “World Boss“, Vybz Kartel! While many hoped he would celebrate his Birthday as a free man, he is still incarcerated while his music runs rampant in the playlists of many worldwide! In honor of his special day, fans recall some of their favourite VK lyrics marked with the hashtag, #WhenKartelSaid. While it has happened in previous times, we’d like to highlight some of the entries today as Kartel continues to churn out songs. A legend in the game, let’s see what some of the fans have recalled below!
No matter where he is, Vybz Kartel has always represented where he’s from and this new single is no different. Titled “Represent Portmore” and produced by Short Boss Muzik, Kartel drops a few punchlines to have your attention, how he lives his life, and makes sure you know that he’s from Portmore over a retro Dancehall riddim. A good one as always from the World Boss and I like that old Dancehall/Reggae riddims are creeping back on the music scene. This week the world will know if Vybz Kartel will either see years in a prison cell, or freedom for the first time in a couple years.

Once again, those prison walls may hold him but can never hold his music. Today’s new music comes from the Gaza boss, Vybz Kartel. Titled “Punany A Mi Best Friend” and produced by So Unique Records, we hear Kartel proclaiming his love for the female anatomy and naming it his best friend. Interesting song from Vybz and i’m sure the ladies will keep this on replay. what do you think of it? Check out the song below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
After making headlines last month about wanting a Vybz Kartel collaboration, Busta Rhymes got his wish and then some on his “Twerk It Remix“. Featuring a fresh verse from the currently incarcerated Gaza boss along with great contributions from French Montana, Jeremih, Neyo and T.I., It’s obvious Kartel would be the main focus here. Technically the 2nd remix as Nicki Minaj’s version was made as the main single, this version is just as good and is sure to collect numerous spins. Busta Rhymes’ E.L.E. 2 album is on the way.

Today’s new music comes from the currently incarcerated World Boss, Vybz Kartel. Titled “Right Wine” and produced by TJ Records, this is one of Kartel’s girl tunes where he encourages the ladies to keep dancing and keep him excited. Nice upbeat rhythm and it’s a summer song which should be very popular at upcoming parties. Ladies get your short shorts ready and dance for the World Boss. The new Kartel songs just keep coming out of the woodwork. What do you think? Check out the song below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
On today’s episode of Noisey Jamaica Dancehall Show Gaza Slim is the featured artist. We see Codine Williams, Slim and crew situated at a courthouse in Kingston where Vybz Kartel attended a court date. Here Gaza Slim told Codine about her start in the music business, meeting Vybz Kartel, his incarceration, members of the Portmore Empire, her “Addi” tattoo, and other things. They also visited the West Bank community in Portmore and spoke to a few of Kartel’s fans and learned of the impact Kartel has on the community. Even though it’s a Gaza Slim episode, it felt like more of a Vybz Kartel episode. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
