Watch below a video interview with Jamaican Dancehall King Vybz Kartel aka Addi The Teacher from 2006.
This Vybz Kartel’s interview is almost 10 minutes long. It’s dated back to 2006. This interview is worth sharing, because it shows a different Vybz Kartel, from the one portrayed in most of his videos. He’s extremely clear, fresh and focused, real.The interview keeps it real on so many subjects from Bounty Killer, to Vybz’s own musical history and how he started his artist career, to his meeting with young and talented Jamaican producer Don Corleon.
Vybz Kartel talks about the origins of his unique style, he drops names of artists that inspires him and he starts with a list that includes Bob Marley, as first name and ends with Beenie Man.
Vybz Kartel comes also real about the press ignoring his social songs and he also talks about garrisons and political culture in Jamaica, touching subjects as music, police and politicians from Vybz Kartel’s point of view. A smart point of view. When the video – interview was released he just had build his label so he also explains everything about Adidjaheim Records & Portmore Empire.
