The “World Boss”: 5 Vybz Kartel International Collabs You Forgot!


Yes, we know, Vybz Kartel is one of the greatest Dancehall Artists ever. We’ve seen the cult like following, we’ve heard all the tracks since his Incarceration, his ability to cater to every vibe and situation, and his influence on many. He is no stranger to collaborating with International acts though. While tracks like “Pon Di Floor” (Major Lazer), “Frontin’ (Remix)” (Pharrell & Jay-Z), “Twerk It (Remix)” (Busta Rhymes), “Girlfriend” (Busta Rhymes & Tory Lanez), “WTP Remix” (Eminem & Supa Dups) get spins, he also has collaborated with the likes of Lorde (on the way), Kalash, Wizkid, and Sean Kingston over the years. But today, here are 5 International collaborations that you didn’t know existed, or may have forgotten about!

(If you want to buy them, the links are in the titles. Bless up!)

1. Descarada (ft, Pitbull) (2006)

2. Everybody Gone Gangsta (E.G.G.) (ft. Kardinal Offishall) (2005)

NEW MUSIC: @KardinalO x @AgentSasco – OG


OG

“A maaad sumn!” Today’s new music comes from two lyrical giants, Kardinal Offishall and Agent Sasco a.k.a. Assassin. Titled “OG“, they show respect those who had the streets on lock, and show us what it takes to be a real OG in their respective areas. I like this collab and with the dope production, this sounds like a banger that will have listeners chanting “OG!“. Look out for Kardinal’s upcoming “Kardi Gras Vol. 1” project.

NEW MUSIC: @TPain x @KardinalO – Dis A My Ting (RAW)


TPain

Inspired by Dancehall music is T Pain’s latest single. Titled “Dis A My Ting“, this features Kardinal Offishall and an unnamed young lady on the chorus. Together they drop a little Dancehall and some Jamaican inflections in this bass heavy Hip Hop track. Interesting single from T-Pain but something you can play at ignorant levels.

KOBeing one of the top Hip Hop acts in North America, Kardinal Offishall has always reached out to the land of his heritage, Jamaica. From collaborating with top Dancehall acts to incorporating Dancehall styles in his songs, Kardinal always managed to keep a close link to Canada and Jamaica. Tonight on Onstage he spoke about his new position at Universal Music, his recent nomination at the JUNO Awards, his upbringing, collaborating with Bounty Killa that gave him his break in Jamaica, promoting new music on the island, and creating a movement to help Caribbean artists, designers, and producers to bring their talent to a larger audience.
