Merital Family

First it was Pop Caan, Kim, lisa hype, Notnice and Jah Vinci.

Now the Montego Base Merital Family has exited the Vybz Kartel's led Portmore Empire.

In a release to the media this is what members of the group had to say, "For the last year and a half, we ah get stifle, we ah get overpriced, dem a tell people say we de pon tour and we de ya nah go nowhere. We ah suffer, we nah get no promotion, we have kids to feed and me have my mother to take care of."

"From wah day ya, mi see riddim a mek and no Merital, no Jahvinci not on it and when we call Notnice, him say 'ah the Teacha set it'. So wah kinda suffocation this? We have been loyal to the organisation, and it is not being loyal to us ... no video, no promotion, no recording. Mi fed up and tired. We caan reason or have a number for the man who run the organisation that we are supposed to be signed to," another group member said in the release.

The release said that the level of segregation and separation insisted on by Portmore Empire head, Vybz Kartel, had stifled opportunities to meet and collaborate with other artistes.

"Mi come to do music and sake ah the Empire, we never get to contact certain producers and artistes, or meet with icons in the business like Bounty Killer, just because of the Empire, we just caan link wid nobody else or it would be seen as a straight violation."

The group, however, has continued to record songs, voicing Tell Me Why for the Young Money label for Good Good Productions, and Dancing on the Type R label. They also recently recorded On and On on the Gangsta City Part Two label.

"We are doing our own bookings now and our own management. We are willing to work with all the great producers out there to make our careers happen. Big-up to Vybz Kartel for signing us in the first place, but we have to move on now so that we can earn and support our families. The way things are going on caan work. We fed up and tired," a representative was quoted as saying in the release.

The group can be contacted through the email address, meritalfamily876@yahoo.com.
