Controversial Reggae artiste Chronixx has openly criticized Vybz Kartel’s impact on dancehall music.
Recently Chronixx came under heavy scrutiny from the public, majority of jamaican nationals, after the POTUS Barack Obama visited Jamaica and was labeled as a ‘wasteman’ by the singer via his Instagram account.
The outspoken conscious singer appeared on Noisey’s recent episode aired on Tuesday night, where he opened up about violence in Jamaican music, singling out Vybz Kartel as the main contributor and labeling him as a “cannibal.”
“Vybz Kartel himself has done a lot of good things in life, I must say,” Chronixx said. “Gangsterism, cannibalism… because Vybz Kartel overtime became a cannibal. When you listen to his music it is very cannibalistic. It became so pleasant to the human that there is a thing within us that crazes chopping up people and beheading people and cut out a man inside.”
Vybz Kartel was convicted of murder in 2014 for the death of his associate Clive “Lizard” Williams. A voicenote from the deejay’s Blackberry phone served as key evidence where he allegedly discussed chopping up Lizard in small pieces and disposed of his remains at sea.
