What’s better than listening to a Vybz Kartel song? Listening to many of them in one sitting of course! With many unsure of the chances of the “World Boss” being a free man anytime soon, it’s good that we have plenty of his music to hold us over till then. Having had a run of Vybz Kartel themed mixtapes, DJ Heavy D of the big bad Chromatic Sound delivers another one in time for the holiday party season. Titled “Str8 Vybz Vol. 1“, we get over an hour of Addi hits, dubplates, collaborations, and some offerings from some of his “children” that we know you’ll love all over again. In case you didn’t know, this is also promotion for the upcoming “Str8 Vybz” event to be held in New Kingston in December. Check out Str8 Vybz here for more info on that.

Montego Bay based DJ Jer keeps the crowd moving with his selections, but his remixes are something special. By now you should be familiar with Drake’s new “Scorpion” album, and his track “In My Feelings“. While the track has sparked a trending “In My Feelings Challenge“, Jer joins in on the fun with Dancehall Artist Vybz Kartel with a “In My Feelings” remix! Lifting Kartel’s “Do It” track, we get a dose of what the “World Boss” would sound like on a Drake track. Imagine if Kartel made it to Drake single. Keke, do you love Addi? Check out the track below, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
Today marks the 42nd Birthday of the one they call, “World Boss“, Vybz Kartel!

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!
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!

Ha ha ha ha, ha ha ha ha… The “World Boss” Vybz Kartel is back at it again with a new song!
