One on One With Vybz Kartel - "I put my trust in scientists rather than pastors"

Artist Spotlight: Zo catches up with Vybz Kartel in an in-depth, online interview.

vybzkartel_zobanner.jpgFirebombings, scandalous pictures, beatings, conflicts with artists and producers, visa problems, and getting called into a summit with the Prime Minister - despite all this, Vybz Kartel, aka Addi the Teacher, aka the Gaza King - the infamous Adidja Palmer is still the Last Man Standing. Is the press surrounding these events real or just hype? I sat down with the Gaza Don himself to find out what separates the entertainer Vybz Kartel from the man Adidja Palmer, who I personally think is one of dancehall's most talented writers - whether controversial or conscious.

Zo:

First and foremost, a majority of the comments on Itunes say it's your best album yet. How do you feel about Pon di Gaza 2.0?

Vybz Kartel:

mi say di same ting.

Zo:

Why is the Gaza such a significant part of your lyrics in your music?

Vybz Kartel:

It's the nickname of my community. But since its inception everywhere in Jamaica has it graffiti style to show their love for Addi and it's also the unofficial name of the teacher. Like a pseudony.

Zo:

Give thanks for that explanation, very articulate - there are a lot of people in the world that don't know that.

Are you the sole writer for the lyrics in 2.0? Where do you draw your inspiration from writing your songs?

Vybz Kartel:

I am the sole writer for every Kartel song ever. Plus I wrote all of Gaza Kim's songs when she was part of the empire and all but one of Lisa Hype's songs when she was a member. Plus I wrote all the songs for Indu, Sheba and Gaza Slim.

My divine inspiration is from life, I get the meditation through divine inspiration

Zo:

What are the two most significant tracks on 2.0?

Vybz Kartel:

That's like asking who my two most significant children from the family of five are (laughing). It's relative to whoever's listening to decide what moves them. All of them are the "fatboy from Hiroshima."

Zo:

A lot of people think that you're a controversial person. I personally think you're extremely talented and you've expressed that in your diversity, why do you think people consider you so controversial, in terms of this gaza vs. gully business?

Vybz Kartel:

In terms of everything. Teacha is a controversial DJ because I choose to be different. I choose not to conform to people's expectations of what an artist should be, do, or say. I'm outspoken and I think, act and react outside the box.

Zo:

Your music is very worldly in inspiration. Do you have a particular spiritual background, or do you adhere to a certain school of thought?

Vybz Kartel:

I think religion is "good" in terms of restricting chaos as it keeps people in check (sort of like an extension of man-made laws). So they, the religious, believe that for every "evil" action (sin) there is a punishment of severe and eternal proportion (burn in hell, blah blah blah). I am spiritual not religious, I put my trust in scientists rather than pastors. I praise life.

Zo:

Nice... What's the reasoning in scientists rather than pastors?

Vybz Kartel:

Science is based on facts - Proof of things through hypothesis, reasoning and trial. Religion is based purely on faith, which in religious ed is "the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen." That can't run my life. No I'm not a scientologist freak. Just a Gaza youth

Zo:

What is the experience like being a celebrity in Jamaica? Do you see yourself as a role model or just an entertainer?

Vybz Kartel:

To whom much is given much is expected, but not in a way most people see it. That saying cannot be applied to entertainers or artistes for that matter because we express life and life can be as unpredictable as dice. So don't expect the "expected." I think as an entertainer I cannot be held responsible for growing your child. I do adult entertainment. I am an entertainer, not a religious or political leader nor a school teacher. Can Rambo grow your child? No. But maybe Sylvester Stallone can. You get what I'm saying?

Zo:

As a trendsetter, how do you see yourself in the future of dancehall music?

Vybz Kartel:

As the Russell Simmons of dancehall, that's why I have a record label that signs artistes, handles bookings and artiste development. Merchandising my line of rum, condoms, etc... I want to go into film production as well.

Zo:

Why Film?

Vybz Kartel:

It's one of the untapped areas of art in Jamaica. We need more films like The Harder They Come, Shottas, etc... to publish the Jamaican experience more vividly.

Zo:

Why are you choosing to remain an independent artist and do your own thing by not adhering to the norm and signing with a major label like Universal or VP?

Vybz Kartel:

It's rebellion against the notion that a label cannot come from Jamaica that can deliver Jamaican music better than a VP or Greensleeves. That's why I released my album on my Adidjaheim/NotNice label before re-releasing with Tads Record Inc as a partner. The initial album sales before the release were poor because I was learning. But the fact I did it on my own is a victory within itself.

Zo:

Do you have any future tour lined up to promote the album?

Vybz Kartel:

Tour? Not really me. Not yet at least. Maybe I'll get the touring attitude when it becomes financially viable like a Michael Jackson tour.

So just who is Vybz Kartel and who is Addija Palmer? A pure genius, he leaves the world in suspense and mystery. One thing I know for sure, he was Zojak World Wide's #1 single-track selling Dancehall artist of 2009. The big hit Romping Shop, featuring Spice, sold over 35,000 downloads and ringtones. For an independent artist who did not tour in 2009, and promotes his music strictly in Jamaica whether physically or online, this truly shows a positive change in the music industry for Jamaican artists.

Pon di Gaza 2.0 is now available on Itunes and a variety of other fine e-tailers worldwide. The physical release is being distributed by Tad's Record Inc.

WOW...I was a living Gaza fan but I am quickly going off Kartel, he is clearly talented, but incredibly disillusioned...Its a shame that he chooses between scientists and pastors for trust and does not mention God the Almighty...Nevertheless God loves you Kartel, and continue to meditate on your sspirit and don't trust scientists, all they do is past an illusion off as evidence...All a now dem cyar tell we how de world start...Stop and tink bout dat...

I have been baptized and I have gone to catholic and many other types of churches, as Mr. Plamer/Addi/ whatever u wanna call him stated religion is based on "faith"... and that is well and fine for some, but for those who need proof or ask questions that just wont do.... Krish how can evidence be an illusion??? I guess all di guilty men in jail can get out on ur theory..... I believe there is a divine being, who or what that is I can not say but I rather live my life the way I please with respect for others so long as they respect me than to put my "faith" in a man whom is no different from me... Mr. Plamer's level of thinking is on another level unless u are willing to open your eyes and mind... stick wit you "faith" and don't try to overstand... Bless

Kartel is confused. Scientist as nothing to do with spirituality. He said that he is spiritual this means that he knows that there is a God and within his spirituality he also know that it based on faith. The last time he spoke about religion etc he said that there is No God. Now he is talking about scientist and spiritual. No one is telling him to put his trust in pastors they are humans just as us which means they are imperfect. Kartel it is time you acknowledge that man Jesus Christ.

YOU STICK WITH THE SCIENTIST COS YOU IS THE BIGGEST APE I'VE EVER SEEN AND THAT'S WHY YOU ALSO SAY THAT YOU DON'T BELEIVE IN GOD BECAUSE SCIENCE IS YOUR RILIGION.

This really proves that Kartel doesn't believe in God. Forget pasters, because alot of them or fake,but he did not mention the Almighty, be said Scientists. And we all know that these scientists doesn't believe in God, every thing that happens is science,just watch Discovery.
But all now they cannot tell me how the earth was created, also they say, was a big explosion, they cannot tell me how the sun was made, in fact they can't even look at it, much more go there, so we know a supreme been did it.
So the fact that Kartel believes in scientists rather than religion(as he said that's faith) tells me he also believes in Masonry, he's a free Mason, he said, hypnoses,trials etc. Masons does this, the man is a devil.

he believes in Science not pastors, I understand the reasoning behind being spiritual, it's knowing that there is a higher power that guides us. But to put your trust in Science, what I got out of that is he trust in Science (Obeah). Scientist a fool people at all times, they have the most pseudony. Was never a Gaza or a Gully, but always about Jamaica mi seh... I don't believe in segregating a nation that needs unity. Kartel needs to put the Unity back in CommUNITY and stop talk sh*t. I see him as evil and manipulative.

Why ppl believe you have to believe in some God to be a good person.Most people that turn to religion would be vicious if they didn't. They tent to be good out of the fear of God. Not out of the goodness of thier heart.Plus half of whom say they are religious, do it out the fear of what ppl will think of them if they didn't say they are.I try to explain this to ppl all the time,Just the way kartel put it.We boast every day how much churches are in JA. Yet still, JA is the murder capitol of the world.Personaly i think having so much churches show how divided we are as a people. We cant even worship under one roof.
PS: Not a fan of Kartel just his opinion

There is a lot of sense in Kartel's statements. Whether we are a fan or not we need to examine his statements objectively. We must not allow our emotions or bias to obscure our ability to reason. Firstly, he stated that he did not put his trust in pastors not that he didn't believe in God, two separate issues. There have been several occasions in the past where pastors or other religious leaders have been proven to be wrong by scientists. In 1633, the distinguished Italian scientist Galileo Galilei was imprisoned by the Church and officially charged with heresy. He pronounced that the Sun was the center of our Galaxy and not the Earth as proclaimed by the Church. Based on observations, by way of telescopes, he proposed that the Earth rotates around the Sun. However, this idea (the Copernican system) was against the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. We all know today, based on scientific evidence that the Earth actually does rotate around the Sun. Scientists are professionals just like doctors, lawyers, etc. There are good and bad ones. There are obviously some scientists that have malicious intentions. However, there are a large number that conducts their researches in the hope that it will yield something that will have a positive impact on the world. Nature is quite complicated which means that there are still several phenomenons that scientists will not be able to figure out at this point. One must give them credit though for the several advancements they have made throughout several centuries. The fact that we can at this point communicate with several persons globally in real time via the internet must be attributed to their great work. Let me just state that I, like several other scientists, do believe in God and believe that we were given a complex brain so that we can understand the natural world that we live in. I am disappointed in how some of my fellow jamaicans reason, rather than discussing the points they bellow a diatribe.

One thing i noticed about him in all interviews, he answer his questions fast and effective, know the meaning to the questions being asked, however he does not or maybe do not want to believe that there is a GOD. He said he wrote all of Gaza Kim songs, and in the song that said, "AMEN" she sang about "thank you Jesus" etc etc. So deep down he believes there is a GOD, he is just playing like a fool

HYPOCRITE!!!! You should go open the book by which you live by and try to overstand it..... by the way that book by which u live by was translated by MEN at least SIX times before it was translated to english.... and Mr. Palmer watever u want to think of him is bringing jobs to JA and giving others chances to rise....wat is the last thing you did to help your country or countryman????

The important thing Kartel mentions is that we all need to raise those under our direct control coz he wont do it for you or me. Same way I ........any way keep arguing

U'll christian minded people need to try and figure out how to better understand ur religion and leave people with other views on life alone. we were all born without a religion and if a man or woman want to leave this world without a religion, thats their business, not urs.

Also, someone mentioned if science can give life, my question to is...where does life come from, have you ever seen it being created?

we are all hypocrites, science is the doctor you see every month, the hospital you go when your sick, the weather you watch when you need to know what to wear, i can go on forever.90% of society value science over religion but would never say say it. most of yall run to church only after there, easter or christmas is death but what about before? if the majority of the world was religious then we would live much better as one especially jamaica. you can claim religion and then kill, rob,etc at the drop of a dime.kartel speaks what most people would never say in public and i respect his opinion.you same critiques i assume that your all "christians" living a holy life.and if not the you have no respect for what you believe in, that is heaven and hell.

Anyone who is supporting Kartel is his disciple.The man sing all kinds of devilish songs, all "sey him no mus know God".He's the one who's confused, not Rhyno. Because, early in his career, before Gaza, when he was in Alliance, i read on his website, and he stated that his mother was a Cristian, but he doesn't really believe in God.He didn't say it clear, but, his explanation clearly showed that he was a non- believer. I i was like, this man don't believe in God.
So all who is been led astray by Kartel, go read the Bible, and all who say they Bible is a lie, because it was translated several times by those who has their own agenda, is delusional.Proverbs for eg, consists mostly of King Salomon's quotes, and he was the wisest man, that lived, if you have any understanding at all and read Proverbs, then you look what is happening in the world today, you will realize that it is real.Every thing that he speaks about happens now in everyday life.
By the way,where do you think the Djs get their belief about Homosexuals,you heard what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah.So clearly anyone who questions the Bible has no understanding, never read it, cannot read and will F*****K M****N.
Kartel sings about b***y m**n fi dead, where does he get that belief, so I'm sure he knows there is a God, and reads the Bible, he's just confused.

And to anyone who don't believe the Bible or God, just stop and look, observe nature, the birds in the sky,the fishes in the sea, night and day,the ants,water. Who created them, who created humans. All now these so called scientists cannot make a man and say walk, live, they can't make water, if rain don't rain, we will die of thirst, look a the water problems now.And all these great scientists died, they cannot live until they want to, when the supreme been is ready for them they have to go, co dem too.No wonder most of them are gay, a least that's what i heard. Because even if you cannot read and understand the Bible or wasn't taught, you observe, look a the dumb animals, have you ever seen two bulls mating, two roasters, any same kind at all mating? then how come we, who are suppose to be smarter are doing it.Laws are all been passed in some countries for same sex marriages, and they claim that they are 1st world countries, yet even the , wild tribes who are not believed to be civilized doesn't do it.These people clearly, like Kartel, doesn't believe the Bible or God,so they sey what they feel fi say, and do what them feel fi do, all cuss God, and that's why so much destruction reaches them.
Everything that great men makes helps to destroy their own self and will eventually malfunction and be useless. They make guns, and is shot by it, they make planes and is crashes and kill them.How come the sun doesn't fall out the sky.huh!

I like him but he's seems to contradict himself in every interview. And in regards to pastors I have to admmit that you cannot put your faith in them but at the same time you only go to them to have the bible clarified to you. I live Canada and there is always a new theory about this that and the other from scientists and each theory always contradicts the other and each scientist has his own view or belief system and they seem to disagree often. That being said putting all your trust in scientists would not be very wise.

I sat here and read all your comments.... some of you f**kers either are DUNCES or just plain haters of kartel....a lot of us even many of you who are talking a bag of shit.... do believe in a supreme being...but we not believe in that supreme being by way of religion because only a fool will not see that religion is a story... nothing else....i will also take facts over faith any day.... ONE of you religious fanatics who don't know shit about what you follow need to answer this question for me....Christianity as you know it dates back to as far as 3000 years ago... just yesterday.... so now except for the MIGHTY bible what physical evidence any of you have to back up the claims of the bible? NONE.... what ever a scientist talks about they prove it..... with this religion bullshit we believe in things we can't prove, we don't understand and in most cases.. we don't even believe it but yet we follow.... Kartel seem to have his head on more tightly than all the fuckers who are here chatting a bag of non-sense... why would i want to be apart of religion when the religion that i am apart of teaches me to hate the other one and cast judgment.... some of you fuckers need to go know your history (religious) before you come and make claims....90% of you don't even know black history beyond slavery.... you don't even know how you came to believe what you believe in...IDIOTS!

As much as mi can't stand VK and his music I believe he his review in a very unfear manner on the statement about his preference between a pastor and a scientist. He was truely taken out of context her. Both pastors and scientists are men. None is God and the question never mention anything about God. God made VK, the pastor and the scientist. Base soley on this statement I can't category say the man is a devil worshiper, however, I can say he his charactor is morally questionable like many Jamaicans. Even some of the commentators here. Generally speaking Jamaican gloried many wrongs without noticing. VK is only feeding these wrongs. Just step back and observe then tell me if I'm wrong here. We glories gun, murder, fornication, adultry through all sort of medium. How that make us better than VK how we proclaimed is a "devil worshiper". No sin bigger than none. If we stop place demand for these action from our artists then they will have to change or go away.

My take

I never believed that so much people here in Jamaica don't believe in God and the Bible like Kartel, no wonder him can sing 'mi no must know God," and those things and people jump up to it, Killa right, Mi sorry fi unno. The Bible tells you not to put your trust in man or flesh, and that your own will deceive you, you must only put your trust in God. Cain killed his brother Abel over jealously, from creation,and that is happening now. You look how many people today are deceived by someone who they taught was their friend or by their own family. If you watch football, look at John Terry. A s i said before read Proverbs which was quotes by King Soloman the wisest man and tell me if it's not real, it's spot on.
As a matter of fact the Bible talks about people like some of you , Kartel and Mutabaruka, he's another one. He doesn't believe either, i've watched his show and listen on radio,and he questions everything, he even say's our beliefs and things in the bible are Ananci stories, just like brother Ananci.But the bible talks about people like those, who will come out and say there is no God and will have strong explanation to question him, yes,and the anti- Christ who will come and tell people that they are God. It also talks about Earthquakes in divers places, see how much quakes have hit since 2010, rumors of wars, children having children, i read that a 10 yo girl gave birth this year in St Elizabeth. So all these things that are happening makes me know that the Bible is real as can be and God is real.

Just like that the we know the first man on earth was Black. Scientist prove that so why is that when you go into most Black people homes you have a picture of a White Jesus. The same scientist twist that all up and make him White. So people don't follow them The White Jesus is the "Beast" and if you read revelations and it will tell you if you worship another God and not Jehovah. Like God says "If any one worships the beast and its image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he also shall drink the wine of God's wrath" If you read the Bible most of the stories are by Black man. In Jeremiah God tells you he is Black, Job was Black, Daniel was Black, Solomon was black, but Like Kartel woman mashup him relationship with GOD Praying to non existing things worshiping cows, Buddha, Moloch, sacrificing, the whole Catholic religion, drinking Blood, Guard Rings (obeah), denouncing God, any man will say what he wants to justify what he is doing is right, If you read your bible it tells you about the priest that preach what they want. The Romans made the picture of Christ and thats not Jesus so please take him off your walls and out of God's Church.

Im sitting here reading everyone's comments and this sh*t is crazy. If you would just come out of that little f**kry religious bubble that yall are in you would understand what the f**king man is saying. Try to differentiate between religion and faith why believe in religion when there is so much of it out there and every f**king religion is different and saying that there god is better than the next man everyone praising some other type of man made figure. Europeans brought religion to Africa in order to control the feeble minded f**ks that they were trying to conquer cause they saw them as animals. The fact that there is countless amounts of religions out there from catholic to buddhism shows u that it is man made everybody has a f**king theory and religion exploits that because they dont have to prove sh*t. Scientists on the other hand has to prove why they believe that the earth is round and every other theory they have but remember it was your religious ancesters that burn and hang a man when he first said that the earth is round and every planet orbits the sun. When people ah try tell unnuh someting wah mek sense unnuh nuh wah listen. Take a fucking History, Theology, Philosophy, and Psychology class like i did and make up ur own minds instead of eating some elses bullsh*t that they feed your weak mind on a positive note GAZA TO DI F**KIN WORLD!!!!!

I notice once one starts studying science they tend to stop believing in God because they some how find a theory of how things happen over a period of time. God gave people the talents they have and they do with it what they wish. I for 1 don’t believe in man developing from tadpole to fish to monkey and so on, if that was so why anymore tadpoles aren’t evolving anymore. Scientists’ gives theories and anybody as confident as Kartel can reason with you "Fusion" and lead you to even believe he himself is God. I don't have to see God to know He is real because I feel his presence. Can you see the wind? No! But you know its real because can feel it. Something to think about, there must be (a supreme being) someone or something that created us just likes everything else. What proof does science have of how the world and all its content are created? Belief kills and belief cures, I rather die a believer in Christianity than a believer in man.

Kartel sounds VERY CULTURED and EDUCATED!
Well rounded is maybe a better term.
I love his music-pure genius! and who he signs to his label is insane... Ryno-popcaan-etc. And For those of you who dont have a deep Connection to the Creator -or- Master Of all that is - you will never know what god is. NOT WHO BUT WHAT!!!

You Tell me people without the dark how would we know what is light??? Without sin and bad in the world how would we, or could we appreciate or be thankful for anything Good?
Wake up people! Be thankful for bad and good. There is a WAY bigger plan than we can understand and nobodys way of thinking should EVER be judged!
