Titled “Black & White“, features 13 hits that were produced by Liquid himself, and famed Producer Don Corleon.

The Album name is based on Kartel’s change in physical appearance over the years.
“When I decided to venture into Production, I had my objectives lined out and I was determined to make my mark in the Music Industry. Over the years, I had the opportunity to produce a few of Vybz Kartel’s hits which I have now compiled into an album,” said ZJ Liquid. The Album saw a March 10 release, and is currently distributed on all major Digital Media outlets by 21st Hapilos.
ZJ Liquid also shared that this album will give the general public a better understanding of who he is as a Producer as many fans tend to pay more attention to his DJ persona. “Many fans see me as a DJ first and Producer after. They know I am in Production but they are not aware of the altitude to which I take it. This Album will help them to recognize what Instrumentals were produced by me as well as which of their favorite Vybz Kartel tracks I’ve produced over the years,” shared ZJ Liquid. “Since its release, I have been receiving a monument of positive feedback. The fans have been supportive, and have been sharing the project on various Social Media platforms,” he added.
