Vybz Kartel in roots tune shock.....

Postby Reggaemusicstore » Thu Jan 13, 2005 7:27 pm

Maybe I've been missing something but I've always associated Vybz Kartel with lyrics of the "Stamp pon a batty bwoy face" variety, alongside numerous references to various parts of the female anatomy. Imagine my surprise then to hear him chatting on a decent new roots riddim, "Justice" on Dejavu label. Mr Kartel's cut is "Life Over Death", other cuts on the riddim include:

Anthony B - Good Will Conquer
Luciano - For Old Times Sake
Norris Man - Babylon

ITs not the first roots tune he has cut Steve.. I don,t really rate that current rhythm but last year he cut a really positive sounding slice of roots over a slow one drop rhythm

Out of interest, when did Vybz start recording and was he ever associated with Sugar Minott's studio?

Thanks for the info Mick & Rez, he's not an artist I would normally check for so my knowledge of him is limited.... respect

Hardcore Djs have always recorded roots musics and conscious tunes. Bounty Killer is notorious for it. Kalonji, same way so

also Buju, Capleton dropped some of the slackest lyrics in their time

more recently Alley Cat AKA Imperial, Frisco Kid AKA Ancient Monarchy, Spragga Benz, Chuck Fender, all unlikely conscious deejays back when, yet they all went the roots route, if only briefly in some cases...

guess time will tell which man a fraud !

Vybz also has a nice cut with Jah Cure that came out last year, definitely check that...forget the name at the moment though.

Apologies...track I was referring to was not Vybz but a Mad Cobra track that appeared in 2003 on The Light Label..rhythm was called The Comet...track was called Never Give up the Fight

Check it!

Vybz also voiced the rootsy African Beat riddim on Fat Eyes last year.

Kartel's next album is pure one drop! That tune with Jah cure is bad tuh RATHID! BIG BIG TUNE! My look outs for this year is Bascom X. Always liked what he's done but I reckon this year he's gonna blow!
