Vbyz Kartel Biopic Movie in The Works

Posted On: February 20, 2016

World boss and Mr. Gully dem, Vybz Kartel who is serving a life sentence, has a biopic movie in the works about his life. Vybz made Caribbean history as Jamaica's first biggest dancehall/Hip Hop artist. But unable to tame and conquer his internal demons, Kartel is living out his success behind bars. 

Being the most controversial dancehall artist Jamaica has ever seen, Vybz Kartel had beef and assualted Ninja Man during a performance on stage, other artists like We The Best soldier, Mavado (Gaza) which spilled into the streets of Kingston with the youth. Kartel continued serving up the beef with Bounty Killer (his former mentor) where fans threw bottles on stage. But it didn't stop there, Vybz started to bleach his skin and even made a track about it called 'Coloring Book.'  Which was also about his excessive addiction with tattoos. 

As we know controversy sells but in Vybz Kartel's case, the negativity of it came with a price and the consequence he paid was with his freedom. In 2011, Kartel was arrested and charged with two murder charges, during the first trial Vybz was found not guilty and in second trial being documented as Jamaica's longest murder trial, Vybz was found guilty. Although he is locked up, the spirit and freedom of Kartel's music continues to thrive. 

Inspired by legendary Buju Banton when he was a teenager, Vybz Kartel took on the musician name as Adi Banton and later evolved into his current name. An ambitious young Kartel who wanted to change the culture of reggae music in Jamaica, ended up living a nightmare instead of his dreams. However, his story is currently being penned and scripted to be directed and produced into a biopic movie of Vybz Kartel's life and journey as a dancehall artist. In an effort to inspire the youth of Jamaica to not make the same mistakes as Kartel, to pursue their dreams with the aspiration to succeed and enjoy that success; and not fall victim into the violence that plagues certain communities in Jamaica. 

Vybz Kartel's last interview before getting locked up and footages of some of his controversial moments can be viewed below via OnStage TV.
