The roots reggae singer received heavy backlash from social media users for a comment he made about the jailed dancehall deejay.
Chronixx was speaking with Noisey about crime and Jamaican music when he said Vybz Kartel over time had become cannibalistic through his music.
Chronixx in his lengthy post said “for all true supporters of Vybz Kartel as a true talent… you have all right in the world. Put every other element aside, Vybz Kartel as a student of the music and our culture is an undeniable and exceptional talent who has proven himself to be a fearless creative soul on this earth.”

Let me title this one..”weh yuh know bout pressure”
I will never dignify untrue and twisted publications made by a media who only seek to create headlines which drag artistes and their supporters through the valley of disunity and division. It is all a part of the overall effort to divide our music, divert our creative focus and incarcerate the legends of our music- “to divide and rule is their only plan…I a nuh fool”. We (chronixx, vybz kartel) will Never dignify the statements made by these individuals of no culture…instead I will continue to make good projects as I patiently wait to see the silver lining behind this dark precipitation of ignorant bloggers and so called “gaza” fans.
Now for all the true supporters of Vybz Kartel as a true talent…you have all the right in the world. Put every other elements aside, Vybz Kartel as a student of this music and our culture is an undeniable and exceptional talent who has proven himself to be a fearless creative soul in this earth.
Then…for the ones who are quick to believe and react out of ignorance to the lies of these puppets who have only revealed themselves to be a disgrace to true journalism, may the peace that passeth all overstanding be with you and yours. – Chronixx
This is the second time Chronixx has come under heavy criticisms by social media users. Last year he was attacked on social media for his controversial ‘waste man’ statement that was directed at United States President Barack Obama.
