Kartel questioned by the police
So Vybz Kartel has been in a police cell now for nearly a week and set to stay there for another month. From what I can see, it’s over gang activities in the Portmore area where he’s from.
Recently when I was in JA, I bumped into these guys who film music videos and they were really hating on Kartel big time. It seemed to be more of an issue for them since the death of Oneil from Voicemail. As I have said on this blog before, I have seen the links between dancehall artists and gangs before, but Kartel and his camp are the subject of a lot of rumours. I can’t say how involved he is in this shooting or this beating.
But what I can say is, it’s hard to be a dancehall artist and not have a gun or be part of a gang which offers some protection and status.
