At the center of a complicated trial, the longest in Jamaican history, that was shadowed by fake news, tampered evidences, corrupted jurors and more Vybz Kartel obtained the right to appeal his unfair trial and will appear again before the court on February 2018 to re start his battle for freedom. He always proclaimed his innocence.
During the years of his incarceration the already big fan base of the artist grew exponentially with new music coming out non stop thanks to the huge catalog of pre recorded material the Jamaican deejay recorded in studio during his whole career and prior to his arrest that producers kept releasing, making him became legendary for the volume and quality of the music released.
