It was reported that, Vybz Kartel was found dead early dawn with his bed sheet wrapped around his neck. This suggested he had committed suicide during the night.
Prison officials have debunked the story and branded it as fabricated.
Vybz Kartel is alive and well, and is currently serving his 35 year prison sentence in a cell at the Horizon Adult Remand Centre on Spanish Town Roadlocated in Jamaica.
Based on the lyrics of a Vybz Kartel song which recently surfaced on the Internet called Mama, it would appear that the deejay foretold his current predicament with the law.
The song was produced by TJ Records off a remake of the 90s Baby Wayne hit record Mama.
Many Vybz Kartel fans have taken to social media, speculating that the deejay is talking about his current situation. Some websites have even argued that the deejay is contemplating suicide behind bars due to suggestive lyrics like,
“Mama we waan come out yah, di grung too tuff, me miss me sofa. Mama come check me lata, di place too small, dem grill di winda. Mama, check yuh pastor fi help, mi waa piece a rope cause mi muss hang mi self,” Vybz Kartel sings.
Music producer Elvis Redwood says Vybz Kartel was simply having a Tupac Shakur moment in the recording booth over two years ago when he recorded the song.
The producer also believes that persons are misinterpreting the song, while others have taken the meaning too literal.
“When a man hang himself in a movie, dat nuh mean sey him hang for real. Some people in the same situation as Kartel might do that, but he is not going to do such a thing,” the producer reassured.
Elvis also revealed that new Vybz Kartel singles will be released to the public under a new moniker, Addi Innocent.
He also advises other producers who have unreleased songs for the incarcerated deejay to release them under the name Vybz Kartel, aka Addi Innocent.
