Vybz Kartel Warns Fans Of Fake “Gaza Vybz Rum”
Vybz Kartel and Masicka may be working on some new music together. These two dancehall spitters have never appeared together on the same single but now it might be a reality.
Sources inside the Gaza told DHH that Kartel is a big fan of Masicka’s music and think that the young Genahsyde deejay is one of the most talented new acts to emerge in dancehall over the last few years. “Addi rate Masicka and vice versa and lyrically these are two of the top deejays in dancehall now so a collaboration is going to happen,” sources told us.
In December last year, Vybz Kartel gave Masicka a big co-sign on social media, naming him as the artist to watch for 2017. “But hold on no artiste out there not firing like Masika,” Kartel wrote. “Him my money is on for 2017, him a go be a worthy opponent by 2020.” Most dancehall fans would agree with the incarcerated deejay on that statement, Masicka and his management team are doing a lot of things right and he is very talented.
Perhaps this is what a Vybz Kartel and Masicka collaboration would sound like. This is not a new song, just a fan mix.
Vybz Kartel is getting back into the rum business but first, he has to battle some folks who are selling counterfeit “Gaza Vybz Rum.”
The incarcerated dancehall rhymer was instrumental in the success of Street Vybz Rum with his ex-business partner Corey Todd. The venture saw huge commercial success in the dancehall market back in 2009-2010, but things came to an abrupt end over a fallout between the two in 2011.
A rep for the dancehall star told DancehallHipHop that the new rum venture is a partnership with his new business partner and they are expecting more success. “Anything the Worl’Boss (Vybz Kartel) touch turns to gold,” his rep said. “Gaza Vybz Rum will be a hit just like Street Vybz did. There are some fake rum on the market but our lawyers are dealing with that. This is premium rum so the difference will be noticeable.”
Vybz Kartel also gave his fans the heads-up on IG warning them of the fake refreshments bearing his name. “People don’t buy this rum,” the “Fever” deejay wrote. “Di boy dem a rob ppl buy selling a lower grade of product and a use me name..I repeat DO NOT BUY GAZA VYBZ RUM…the Real GAZAVYBZRUM coming soon..just keep posted to this page.”
