Vybz Kartel Gets Featured On AMC’s Preacher



Vybz Kartel gets another mainstream feature this time on the soundtrack for AMC’s supernatural action serious Preacher.

Despite being incarcerated since 2011, Vybz Kartel has remained very much relevant in Jamaica’s dominant music form, dancehall. The Gazanation leader, aka Worl’Boss, has added significantly to his vast catalog during his time behind bars. This year he did a collaboration with Mangi Mahal, “Balle! Shava!” The track is featured on the soundtrack for AMC’s hit series Preacher.

For those of you who haven’t yet been watching, Preacher, it’s time to get on the bandwagon. The show is now in its second season and has reportedly been renewed for a third next year. The first season averaged around 3 million viewers per episode, so these are ears that Vybz Kartel will reach and these might be folks who have never heard his music before. The series was developed for AMC by Sam Catlin, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogen and starring Dominic Cooper.

Vybz Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, will get a shot to vindicate himself and walk free come February of next year when his appeal trial kicks off in the Appeal Court in Kingston. The dancehall star is currently serving life for a 2014 murder conviction. He will be eligible for parole in 35 years. Throughout the two-month trial, the defense argued that police officers tampered with cellphone evidence presented in court and also intimidate one of the defense witnesses. As if that wasn’t enough, one member of the jury was arrested the same day the artist was convicted of murder.

That juror, Livingston Caine, is now on trial for conspiracy and attempted bribery charges and faces a few years in prison if convicted. Vybz Kartel and his three co-accused, Shawn “Storm” Campbell, Andre St John, and Kahira Jones, have all maintained their innocence despite the mountain of evidence presented in the case against them. The murder victim, Clive “Lizard” Williams, body was never found.


Good Charlotte – Keep Your Hands Off My Girl


Let the record play,
Let the record play,
Let the record play.
The way that you dance,
The way that you move,
The way that you stare at me across the room,
You carry Dion bags,
And you got your Chanel,
You wear L Louis Vuitton, ASG, and YSL,
Now I got what you need,
I got DCMA,
I got brass knuckles hanging,
From my neck and my chain,
I got a model 26,
But she stays in her place,
I got a curve shirt neatly,
Tucked inside in my waist.
And the record keeps playing,
The same old song,
The hipster keeps mugging on me all night long,
They say "Aha, ahha",
Keep your hands off my girl,
Keep your hands off my girl,
They say "Aha, ahha",
But the record keeps playing,
The same old song,
They say "Aha, ahha",
Keep your hands off my girl,
Keep your hands off my girl.
Now she sweating my friends,
And my hurricane shoes,
She likes the records I spin,
But out important tattoos,
But she can’t say "what’s up",
So what does she do,
She just stays posted up,
The other side of the room,
I got AMC tattooed in my hand,
I got black wall street on a black bandana.
And the record keeps playing,
The same old song,
The hipster keeps mugging on me all night long,
They say "Aha, ahha",
Keep your hands off my girl,
Keep your hands off my girl,
They say "Aha, ahha",
But the record keeps playing,
The same old song,
They say "Aha, ahha",
Keep your hands off my girl,
Keep your hands off my girl.
She, she, she don’t wanna talk about it,
He, he, he wants to fight about,
Me, me, I don’t wanna fight about it,
I just wanna be about it,
I’m just trying to stay about it,
Step out the wagon,
You know the boy starts to hate,
The girl that came with him,
They like that’s not the boy she dates,
They get the fighting and swearing,
And now the boyfriend is staring,
The disco ball on the ceiling,
Looks like the chain that I’m wearing,
But the music keeps playing,
I got brass knuckles hanging,
From my neck and my chain,
I got brass knuckles hanging,
From my neck and my chain.
And the record keeps playing,
The same old song,
The hipster keeps mugging on me all night long,
They say "Aha, ahha",
Keep your hands off my girl,
Keep your hands off my girl,
And the record keeps playing,
The same old song,
The hipster keeps mugging on me all night long,
They say "Aha, ahha",
Keep your hands off my girl,
Keep your hands off my girl.
You carry Dion bags,
And you got your Chanel,
You wear Louis Vuitton, ASG, and YSL
Now I got what you need,
I got DCMA,
I got brass knuckles hanging,
From my neck and my chain,
I got brass knuckles hanging,
From my neck and my chain.
