6. Tends Not To Write Songs (Anymore)

In a 2011 interview, Vybz Kartel discussed his hit song, “Dumpa Truck,” which he claimed he did not write but simply memorize the lyrics during studio time.

He also disclosed that his basic requirement is to listen to the beats (rhythm/riddim) and the lyrics will eventually fall in place as he ponders around with ideas straight from his thoughts.

“The riddim talk to me enuh, I dont write anymore.

First, I get the melody, then the words come after.” – Vybz Kartel (Hitz 92FM)
