Kartel records single about incarceration

Deejay Vybz Kartel has recorded a single called Babylon Say Jail for Me on a one-drop rhythm created by the Portmore-based producer Not Nice. The song chronicles the deejay's recent wrongful incarceration at the hands of authorities in relation to a criminal matter. The song is a far cry from his humourously defiant 'When Shotta Go a Jail'' which he did after he was incarcerated by cops after getting into an altercation with fellow deejay Ninjaman at Sting 2003.


The lyrics go:
Babylon say jail for meThen the judge set bail for me
Smaddy tell the jury Jah control mi destiny
Down a cellblock mi whole mi stay, mmhhhh
Pree me a pree mi case, mmhhh
Next court date a next year February, that a f----ky
Mi de pon two months remand, mmhhhh
Thirty years mi a face,mmhhh
And the police bwoy know inna him heartAh the court time him a waste
