13. Vybz Kartel Believes Music Has No Influence On Crime
Many would agree that violence in Jamaica is intertwined with certain negative aspects of popular culture, including Dancehall music.
Vybz Kartel, however, believes that music is just entertainment and that’s all.
In a 2003 interview, he shared his input on the topic stating that he would not subscribe to the argument that his music contributes to crime.
“I never heard that Sylvester Stallone or Arnold Schwarzenegger robbed a place yet, but you always seeing them in movies firing shots. So movie, acting is art and music is art and art is a representation of life and reflection. You can’t make life be a representation of art.” – Vybz Kartel (OnStage)
