Brand new Kartel, still great, still amazing. Still in jail.

From the Willie Bounce, pot lid pull ups, video lights, lighters, flame forwards, to high grade and Henessy, the video for Kartel’s Dancehall has all of the elements we love about dancehall and JA raves.Like all good things the video is NSFW!
This tune goes hard! Get it on the Viking (Vybz is King) EP.
Kartel is still pumping them out. This new one sees him chat about the many issues affecting Jamaica and everyone’s hustle for money. That 10 song a night work ethic paid off.
Probably the best cut on Rvssian riddim, Kartel is back this time with J Capri. We are really feeling Rvssian riddims at the moment. He is probably the only one that is actually making stuff that will last longer than 2 weeks. On this riddim he gets all the big dogs Sean Paul, Konshens and Kartel. Sean Paul sounds better than he has in a long long time, Konshens is good but is still missing something since his burst a year or so ago. Any new Vybz Kartel is always welcome and on this one he rides the reggaeton influenced track better than the others.
As 2013 comes to a close, it’s time for our Top 20 tunes of the year. This year more than others we feel that there is a growing scene with various radio shows, labels and DJ’s playing more and more of the music we love. There has been a lot more attention payed towards Africa, Soca finally getting more shine and Dancehall moving more and more into the mainstream. There may have not been a big crossover song but instead there has been many a song which has caught the imagination of the public. We have certainly seen a shift in our raves where people are demanding we play stuff that a few years ago they would have looked a bit lost at. Let’s hope that this momentum continues with more and more exposure to the World Carnival sound. This list has been based on the tunes that we have been playing out at our numerous raves, listening to at HDD Headquarters and generally being the best ones out this year.

So the man has been in prison for a long time and all of a sudden we get this? When this came out it was a bit odd but after watching Jamaican Tv show Onstage it all became clearer. This single is coming on on Vybz Kartel’s wife’s label which is focused on clean and positive songs. The only other people signed to the label are his kids. We are struggling to think of any other song that is so school positive. This is the first of the many great cuts on the Toasted Riddim to get it’s own video.
