"Letter to the Media from 'Anonymous overseas observer' "


AS CASE AGAINST VYBZ KARTEL FALLS APART MANY NOW WONDER IF IT COULD REALLY BE HIS BOOK TO QUOTE KARTEL “THAT STEPPED ON THE WRONG TOES IN JAMAICA” CAUSING THIS SITUATION.


Co-Author refuses to comment on the issue and claims he is not afraid despite recently toning down his attacks on the system after confronting the National Security Minister on prejudicing Kartel’s case and challenging former Senator Tufton to a debate on Dancehall earlier in the year

With the DNA being negative, missing pages from witness’ statement, tales of dog bites and lost note books; the man on the street in Jamaica now wonders “Is what Kartel do suh, why de man dem want him so bad.”

Prior to his arrest in 2011, he was enjoying one of the relatively quieter years as far as legal ramblings are concerned. In earlier years, he had punched Ninjaman on Stage, caused the Broadcasting Commission to change its rules on banning songs mainly due to the monster hit “Ramping Shop” and even forced the then Prime Minister to summon him to Jamaica House as he was partially being blamed for a Gully/Gaza conflict that took over the entire nation and parts of the Caribbean. Apart from a few detentions and quick releases; the system never really came hard at Vybz Kartel before as they did in September 2011.

Again, that was a relatively quiet year for Kartel in so far as interaction with the police as the Gaza/Gully war was over and he then vowed not to sing anymore gun songs. However, contrary to reason, the world suddenly sees Vybz Kartel in jail for more than 2 years for 4 cases including one involving a single stick of ganja which another person admitted ownership of. Now with a case that seems to have more holes than an gourmet slice of Swiss cheese and even included a story of a man who is not on the Jamaican Olympic team hopping on one foot running down and catching another man who said he was running for his life; Jamaicans are looking for answers as to why the system would hold a man in jail for two years on such shaky evidence. Now there are whispers that it could be his book as the only logical explanation.

What many had not realized until Princeton endorsed it, was that his book Voice of the Jamaican Ghetto was Kartel’s single most potent attack on Babylon’s system. In the book Kartel calls on the government to immediately end the Westminster system and set a date for becoming a republic, he calls the Members of Parliament the “N” word, questions Bustamante’s right to be a National Hero and reveal that Hugh Shearer once banned black books in Jamaica long before Ramping Shop was banned. He attacked the police for unjust killings and questionable deaths in custody and even reveals some elements of Jamaica’s history that were previously swept under the rug by the system. He takes on the PNP and JLP like no one has ever done before.

It is said by many that if this book gets to win the fight against it and gets to the masses in Jamaica similar to its global monster sales, Jamaica could be in for its first revolution – an intellectual revolution as suggested by Kartel but never the less it is obvious that much like the influential authors that affected the French Revolution, Vybz Kartel is a major threat to the establishment because of his ability to influence the masses – this time with their history, statistics that highlight the uneven distribution of wealth and more so an empowerment to rid themselves of the strong hold and division that Jamaica politics impart on poor people.

Kartel’s co-author and business partner Michael Dawson firmly refuse to comment on this new rambling about the book causing Kartel’s demise, only saying only that his focus right now is to work with the lawyers to ensure that Kartel is home soon.
