Kartel Opens Up About the Real Vybz 'Pon Di Gaza'

NEW ALBUM FROM VYBZ KARTEL HITS ITUNES SEPTEMBER 22ND

Pon-Di-Gaza-Vybz-Kartel.jpgVybz Kartel is perhaps the most talked about man in Dancehall--a captivating figure noted just as much for his supposed rivalries and alleged personal controversy as he is for his suave but brazen delivery, racy content, and sharp lyrical agility. His latest album Pon Di Gaza, slated for release on iTunes on Tuesday, September 22nd, gives listeners a totally different perspective; an in-depth look at the man behind the myth.

Released on the Adidjahiem Records/NotNice Records label, Pon Di Gaza is a complete portrayal of the life and times of Adidja 'Vybz Kartel' Palmer. Tunes like the Billboard-charting single "Ramping Shop" featuring Spice, "Virginity" featuring Indu, and "Like a Movie" give audiences the flashy "vybz", while new singles like "Teardrops," "What You Won't Do for Love," "Can't Frame Me," and "Yea Though I Walk" gives personal testament of the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of Adidja.

"The exclusive tracks were done late last summer, and reflects the mood of what I was going through at that point in time," states Kartel. "Detained in jail without just cause, relationships between my baby mothers and myself--each with a different outcome, the death of a good friend...real life situations. I think my fans will love to get personal with Kartel, so this is their chance."

Vybz-Kartel-graphic-photo.jpgSince his initial introduction as deejay (emcee) in 2002, Kartel quickly established himself as one of the most domineering talents in Dancehall. That same year, he was crowned Deejay of the Year at the Stone Love 30th Anniversary celebration. In 2003, he nearly topped the Billboard Reggae charts for the most singles sold, coming in second to Elephant Man.

Crossover singles like "Tekk," "Gun Session," and "Ramping Shop" have earned Kartel international recognition, in addition to collaborations and remixes with Hip Hop and R&B stalwarts like Jay-Z, Rihanna, Missy Elliot, M.I.A, Pharrell, Kardinal Offishal, Akon, and Jim Jones. In recent years, he has been nominated for Source, VIBE, and MOBO awards.

In 2009, Kartel has had six number one singles in Jamaica: "Last Man Standing;" "Million By A Morning;" "Ramping Shop" featuring Spice; "Mama;" "Dollar Sign;" and "Completely" featuring Indu. In addition, he scored two international hits with "Ramping Shop" debuting on the Billboard Top 100 Singles charts, and "Dollar Sign" being in regular rotation on popular urban stations in the U.S. This year he was also recognized by the EmE (Excellence in Music and Entertainment) Awards for Song of the Year, Lyricist/Songwriter of the Year, and Male Deejay of the Year.

Pon Di Gaza is slated for release by Adidjaheim Records/NotNice Records on iTunes (www.apple.com/itunes) on Tuesday, September 22nd. The album's production credits include Ainsley "NotNice" Morris, Lenburgh "Leng" McDonald, Jordan McClure, and Tarik "Russian" Johnston.

All the persons getting all heated bout 'gully mi seh', 'gaza mi seh' & 'alliance mi seh' pls note the gully god's statement about 2 weeks ago on TV & I quote - "Vibez Kartel's 'Money pon mi mine' song is mi favourite song right now, cuz it a say just how mi feel". So unnu gwan mek a fool outa unnu self bout gully/gaza/alliance. David Brooks & Adidja Palmer r no Rodney Price (lol)...is str8 money making ting dem deh pan, not no personal thing. I really do believe that if Mavado didn't link so closely with Bounty he wouldnt have so many enemies, but making enemies is just Bounty's nature & if u r close to him that will be the nature of ur life. Mi happy fi both Kartel & Mavado - a fi dem time now.

Bax Vibes:
Posted by Bax Vibes | September 21, 2009 11:20 AM

Mi nuh loyal to nuh man, i'm a big fan of dancehall music-from neutral point of view-is not every song tht gaza does is great and is not every song tht gully does is great-i always respect an artist who writes they own songs

With Vibes cartel abilities-he's going be around for a long time coming

but i don't know for Movado!
