Gaza loses, Gully rises victorious
I was thinking on the bus, coming into work today how Jamaican music superstars, Vybz Kartel and Mavado have taken their different paths, just from their different outlooks on life.
This seems obvious to me if you listen to both of their latest songs ..
So with Kartel facing murder charges and things looking generally hopeless for him, he comes out with Ghetto Road
So he came from a place which was difficult and he’s faced a lot of hardship, if you re-read some of my previous posts, you will see that I am a real Kartel fan and have given him a lot of understanding, but he has let life really get to him.
Whereas, I think that Mavado is really rising above it all and OK, he comes from the same Kingston streets, but he’s using his new situation to enjoy life.
I actually rate Kartel for being more real in a way but when it comes to survival in this life, he maybe has something to learn from the Gully God.
