Is Vybz Kartel flooding the airwaves with new music?
Since he started serving his life sentence in April of this year, Vybz Kartel has released an album and a slew of new music.
This abundance of new material is keeping the deejay relevant while behind bars. But some artists and industry personalities are not happy and are accusing the self-proclaim Worl’Boss of saturating the airwaves to remain relevant.
One producer who produced songs for Vybz Kartel in the past, told Urban Islandz that the flood of new music seems deliberate.
“Nuff man a say Kartel a saturate the airwaves with new music but he has been doing that long before him go prison,” the producer told us requesting to remain anonymous.
“If you look back from 09 back to 2011 the airwaves was saturated with Kartel music because he is a hard worker, but is it good for the music? no it’s not because while you have some big hits, majority are junk under produced songs,” the popular producer added.
A veteran deejay also expressed similar views telling us that most of the new influx of Vybz Kartel songs are under produced and is just watering down the music.
“A lot of the so called new songs I am hearing everyday from the deejay is just junk, like somebody just trying to make a money and a put out some songs that not suppose to leave the studio,” he told us.
Since his arrest in 2011, Vybz Kartel manages to remain relevant in dancehall with a consistent supply of new music.
Vybz Kartel two sons Little Addi and Little Vybz have also launched their careers in dancehall to carry on the deejay’s lagacy. So far the duo have released two singles.
Do you agree with some artists that Vybz Kartel is saturating the airwaves with junk music? Or do you think other artists need to hit the studio more often?
