In an exclusive interview, Kartel says dancehall has suffered a huge decline since he’s been behind bars and insists that there is no artiste in the market at present that can take his throne.
“Dancehall is in jail,” Kartel firmly insists.
“And although the fact remains that if I die tomorrow, dancehall will continue, it’s also a fact that the next artiste to bring the energy, panache, and ‘vybz’ to dancehall, isn’t here yet.”
Clearly unimpressed by any of the current deejays that have followed in his wake, the star, dubbed dancehall’s ‘worl’ boss’, feels the genre’s demise is clear for all to see.
