Vybz Kartel is celebrating his 42nd birthday today (January 7th) in

The incarcerated dancehall legend received a family visit from his
kids who were brought to GP on Sunday afternoon. A rep for his label
told us that he is in good spirit as he marks another milestone in his
life and career. “The Worl’Boss is in great spirit and despite his
incarceration, there are a lot of things to be thankful for,” his rep
We’re told that this year will mark 25 years since Vybz Kartel been
in the music business and despite being incarcerated since 2011, he
is showing no signs of slowing down. “25 years in dancehall and still
active and more relevant than 99% of the artists is something to be
thankful for and something to celebrate,” his rep added.
Vybz Kartel started his dancehall career in the early 90s as part of
the group Vibes Cartel . The group was later disbanded and he took
on the name Vybz Kartel by just changing up the spelling. However,
his big success didn’t come until the early 2000s when Bounty Killer
took him under his wings and lifted him up from an underground act
to the mainstream of dancehall.
Bounty Killer , along with several other affiliated dancehall
entertainers including Sean Kingston, Popcaan and NotNice have
