Vybz Kartel launches his new business venture, the Gaza Vybz Rum.

Unlike his previous experience with the Jamaican judicial system, incarcerated deejay, Vbyz Kartel, has the law on his side as he launches his new business venture, the Gaza Vybz Rum.

Checks by The Star revealed that although the controversial artiste has been behind bars for five years, there is no law prohibiting him from having entrepreneurial pursuits such as the introduction of his new rum.

Clerk of the Court at the St Andrew Parish Court, Hansard Lawson, the artiste is within his right to have businesses operating under his guidance.

"Once he has the necessary licences, it can be done because there is no law that disallows imprisoned persons from having business operations," said Lawson.

A representative of the Department of Correctional Services also corroborated Lawson's views.

"If the rum goes through the proper legal channels, it can be done with his name as the proprietor," the representative explained.

This is Kartel's second sojourn into the liquor industry, it follows on Street Vybz Rum, which was introduced in 2008 and was a partnership between the deejay and businessman Corey Todd. Production was stopped in 2011 when there was a conflict between the two men.

"We are going to hit the marketplace hard this week. We are already getting a lot of orders all over the island, and in Caribbean islands such as Trinidad," Gaza spokesperson, Jeffrey Hype, said.

"Now, the Gaza boss ah do it again, the rum new and improved. The factory is based in Clarendon. We employ Jamaicans, providing means of employment for ghetto youths, and we know that this enterprise will be a successful one, so support the movement," Jeffrey Hype said.

Since his conviction for murder in 2014, music from Kartel has continued to flood the music industry with singles including recent hits, House A Bun Dung and Bicycle.

The representatives of the artiste have repeatedly denied that he has been recording these released singles behind bars but contend that they were recorded prior to his initial arrest in 2011.
