Vybz Kartel Found Guilty Of Murder! | Jamacian Dancehall Sadness

To be honest, this is a sad day. Vybz Kartel, one of the best dance hall artist or maybe even one of the best international artist alive has been convicted of murder. The trial lasted 65 days and is Jamacia’s longest lasting trial ever. He will definitely be missed.

Prosecutors alleged Williams was beaten to death at Kartel’s home in August 2011 after being lured there to answer for two missing illegal guns. His body has never been found. Police testified they retrieved a text message from Kartel’s phone saying Williams was chopped up in a “mincemeat” so fine that his remains would never be found.

Last year, another murder case against Kartel and two other co-defendants collapsed after prosecutors failed to produce evidence to support allegations that the trio killed businessman Barrington “Bossy” Burton in 2011.

Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, has been in jail for about three years, but his songs are played widely and many young Jamaicans, especially those in blighted slums, consider him a hero of sorts.

Vybz Kartel you will be missed dude!
