Just starting to warm up here in Japan and I really really can't wait to shake off the post quake doldrums, shake a leg down at the beach.. ah Spring/Summer can't come too soon..

Anyway, what's been happening riddim wise lately? Star A Star riddim sounds pretty damn hot to me so far. Anything else I've missed?


Tried and true formula, but still puts a grin on my face.

it's all part of his <a href="http://www.dancehall.mobi/2011/05/28/another-vybz-kartel-statement-says-he-has-been-carrying-a-secret/">master plan to trick Babylon</a>.

I did not want them to muzzle me also, so I took a decision that I felt I had to, I had to trick Babylon. I realized if I kept doing outrageous and outlandish stuff, they would write me off as just an attention seeking artiste and not realize that since July 26, 2009 behind closed doors I have been writing my book and setting up my GEL (Gaza Education and Literacy) program. So they put the spotlight on me, not knowing that they were actually putting the spotlight on themselves because Vybz Kartel is not about braces, bleaching and hairstyles but I am about elevating the cause of Ghetto people.

Please understand Jamaica sometimes you have to trick Babylon with confusion. If I revealed my intentions two years ago, do you think the people that control the media would report everything I do? Babylon, you have been tricked. For 500 years, the system has been using reverse psychology to trick my people,I have now used reverse psychology to trick them Let’s see societal hypocrisy for what it is. Now that my book is going to be released, now that most of my songs will have a more cultural overtone as i have already taken the decision to stop deejaying gun lyrics, now that I am going to be providing educational opportunities for young people,will you be giving me the same attention?
he fell out with his manager (who built the Vybz Kartel rum/condoms/nightclub/etc. empire) which seems to have caused him to lose his mind even more. i am a bit worried about what's going to happen to him.

wow, amazing link... i had to fetch a roach out of the ashtray just to pregame to read the whole thing..

Vybz Kartel is now advising the world that I will use the spotlight that you have put on me to highlight their cause. I am not naïve and I know based on recent interviews on TV that my life and freedom is more in danger than ever before because I have no intention of easing up on the system or their agents.
major paranoid coke vibes...

although he does address a great many subjects, he does not get to the bottom of how getting hair extensions and bleaching one's skin tricks babylon...

it's nice to see dancehall bleeding into road rap as it has no influence on grime these days (to grime's detriment obviously). don't know if this is part of a wider phenomenon though, i don't follow road rap.
