Alkaline has denied ever visiting Vybz Kartel in prison to make peace
and possibly record a collaboration.
On Tuesday, rumors started floating around the internet claiming that
Alkaline visited Vybz Kartel in GP. The reports alleging that the
Vendetta deejay apologizes to the incarcerated deejay and asked for
a collaboration in music and possible business ventures.Dapstream News reached out to sources in both the Vendetta and Gaza camp
who could not confirm the claim, the folks over Vendetta
categorically denied the reports.
“Alkaline never and I want to emphasize ‘never’ visit Kartel in or out
of prison,” a rep for the Vendetta told Us. “This is nothing more
than fake news made up by supporters of the other side. We too busy
making hit songs and making moves to even sit down behind a
keyboard and makeup foolishness.”
DJ-LYTMAS also reached out to our sources inside the Gaza for a comment
and they also couldn’t confirm that the meeting ever happen. “I don’t
know about that,” sources said. “Vybz Kartel gets visit from people
from time to time and there is a process to see him so at the very
least Shorty or management would know if that ago go down.” Vybz
Kartel and Alkaline are both rivals in dancehall and two of the hottest
artists in the genre over the last few years.
In October last year, Vybz Kartel released an Alkaline and Mavado
diss track “Round Corna” which solidifies their beef. That track has
since racked up 3 million views on YouTube.
