The American rapper recently took to social media to remind his fans of his close connection with Kartel and that he looks forward to see Buju being released from prison later this year.
“Free di teacha!!!! @vybzkartel#Gazaweseh,” he captioned the pic of himself holding Kartel’s book, The Voice Of The Jamaican Ghetto.
The book by the “Fever” deejay, real name Adidja Palmer, was released in July 2012, with the tag line “Babylon can incarcerate the messenger but not the message,” and with the prestigious Princeton University adopting the book into its libraries.
Vybz Kartel, who prepares to appeal his murder conviction in July, has been in custody since September 2011, and informed media reporters that he was already writing a follow-up to The Voice Of The Jamaican Ghetto.
“Free @bujuofficial the Unconquerable Gargamel!!” he wrote on a pic of Buju via Instagram.
Buju, real name Mark Myrie, is expected to be released from a US jail in Florida on December 8 where he has been serving a drug trafficking sentence since June 2011.
