Another international artiste has offered high praises for Vybz Kartel.
Founder member of the Rolling Stones Mick Jagger says imprisoned entertainer Vybz Kartel and Jay-Z are his favourite rappers.
According to Jagger, Vybz Kartel’s language is hard to understand but he is ‘mad’ with dance-hall styles.
“My favourite rappers are Vybz Kartel, I like him and I guess Jay-Z” said Jagger.
He also explained the difference between Jay-Z and Kartel.
“One is very different from the other. Jay-Z’s got this whole body of work and he’s put himself together with great tunes as well, and Vybz Kartel is just completely mad dancehall and totally different. It’s very difficult to understand a word he says until you’ve heard it about 100 times,” while participating in a question-and-answer session on Twitter recently.
American rapper Busta Rhymes is another international act who has given kudos to ‘the world boss’ in past. He once told the American based website VLADTV.com:
“The thing I found more intriguing is how he was able to evolve what the now reggae artiste should be like, whether you agree with it or you don’t. His perspective of what the now reggae artiste should be is what differentiates him from everything that I have seen a long time in reggae artistes. He understands how to incorporate shock value with incredible music. He does things on the shock value level that we might look at as very crazy.”
