The “Bodak Yellow” rapper was in Jamaica last week to shoot a music video for the famed producer but seems that was not all she did in reggae land. There were some rumors floating around claiming that she visited Vybz Kartel in prison, but sources told us that did not happen. Instead, she spends some time at GeeJam villa where there is a studio and record some new music.
Over the weekend, Cardi B wrote on Instagram that Vybz Kartel is her favorite artist of all time. “I can cry @vybzkartel is my favorite artist of all time Me and my friends teenagehood was all about dancing to @vybzkartel #FreeVybz,” she wrote. She didn’t mention the new collaborative single, but what artist don’t want to work with their idol.
Rvssian and Vybz Kartel are again working on new music. Last week the longtime collaborators released the new hit single “Kremlin” featured on the producer’s new project, Moscow Riddim. The incarcerated deejay has cranked up the dial in the past two months by releasing a flurry of new singles including “Mhm Hm,” “Don’t Come Back,” and “Kremlin.”
Kartel made the strong statement in his new song “Kremlin” produced by Rvssian. Both rival deejays released new music over the weekend and fans of both sides of the divide are weighing on which one is better. In the incarcerated deejay’s new single “Kremlin,” he took shots at Alkaline in a few lines. “Who borrow me style fi know say dem owe me pon the loan / We a mega star, so everything we do it haffi show,” Kartel deejay over the Moscow Riddim.
Alkaline has been criticized for the past few years for stealing Vybz Kartel’s style. The Vendetta deejay denied the allegations and his fans have been pushing back while also accusing the Gazanation boss of being envious of Alka’s rise in dancehall. “We all know that the blind boy thief Addi style and can’t come out with a new song unless he is copying someone style,” one fan wrote.
“As a non Vendetta or Gaza fan,” one fan wrote. “A non biased ear can’t help but to be honest that Alkaline stop following Kartel and find his own cadence and flow since his last album and a whole bunch of singles. I respect Vybz Kartel but fans use the days of him following Kartel to this day to ignorantly discredit his talent. On the other hand he had to do what he had to do because of you the same fans who make it hard for any artist to catch your attention and to show their talent without some copying or controversy.”
For the last two months, Vybz Kartel has been dropping an average of two songs per week and almost all of them have been hits. There were some rumors claiming that the Gazanation deejay had stopped voicing for Rvssian, but that’s clearly not the case and this track pretty much respond to those critics.
“How yo mean mi naan voice for Rvssian / Yow Tarik yo hear the pu**y them,” Kartel said in the intro while laughing. “Kahira get a almanac, bet unno say Adidja a / A go run the place all when me .50, what a caliber / Higher than the Dutch inna the coffee shop / So me trick the trickster with the dove inna the magic hat
Huh, see say dem a copy cat / A no nothing that me a the prototype, the quintessential,” Kartel spits over a bass heavy beat.
Vybz Kartel also pays homage to his hometown Waterford in Portmore. Last weekend, the deejay released two music videos, “Don’t Come Back” and his viral hit “Mhm Hm.” Listen Vybz Kartel new single “Kremlin” below.
