Vybz Kartel Speaks… lawyer, Tom Taveres dismiss claims of recordings done in Jail

Five years to date since the incarceration of Dancehall mogul Adidja Azim Palmer (Vybz Kartel) yet somehow he still manages to stay current and ruling Dancehall. Since the start of this year there have been over 50 new release songs from the self-proclaimed “World Boss” including the 12 track album titled ‘King of Dancehall’. How does he manage to stay current and on top?

In an exclusive interview with Rolling Stone conducted through his lawyer, Tom Taveres Finson, Vybz Kartel denied that he is recording in jail and revealed the secret behind how he manages to stay current in Dancehall.

“I’ve always been a prolific songwriter, and I record at breakneck speed as well, so I have a lot of surplus material to choose from,” Kartel tells Rolling Stone. “There is a recording studio at another correctional facility [in Jamaica] but none here … cellphones, laptops, or any Internet-capable instrument are prohibited items.”

In the meantime the artiste has continued to maintain his innocence in the murder of Clive “lizard” Williams which he has been spending a life sentence for following his 2014 conviction.

“I cannot speak much about it since it’s ongoing, but I’d like to reiterate to the fans that I’m an innocent man,” he says.

“He is appealing his conviction, a process that has stalled for two years while his legal team has waited for transcripts from the trial to be prepared by the courts. That paperwork was finally completed this summer.” Reported by Rolling Stone

“Once you have been convicted of a crime, you have the right to appeal your conviction and or the amount of time you were given, so I’m exercising that right as a Jamaican citizen,” Kartel told Rolling Stone. “It’s a very delicate issue.”

The Appeal Hearing is expected to be early 2017 and Kartel and his team of Attorneys are anticipating a successful verdict.
