Vybz Kartel is set to drop another album ahead of his upcoming appeal.
The Incarcerated Dancehall superstar will be releasing a new EP titled “Party” this summer. The project follows Kartel’s chart-topping ‘King Of The Dancehall’ album released last year.
‘King of the Dancehall’ served as Vybz Kartel’s second studio album since his incarceration and sold over 3,800 units in the United States with 1,867 units sold in the first week of it’s release on June 10, 2016. The 14-track project which was produced by TJ records also earned the biggest first-week sale for a dancehall artist since Beenie Man’s ‘Undisputed’ album in 2006.
Sources close to the “Fever” deejay recently confirmed his forthcoming project. “We are pushing for a summer release but at the very least it will be ready before the appeal which is less that a year from now,” sources said. “This project is special because it could be his last project before knowing his fate whether or not he will be freed or spend the rest of his life in prison.”
Vybz Kartel’s team has been releasing less singles these days following the Minister of Security launching an investigation into the self-proclaimed ‘Worl Boss’ allegedly recording music in behind bars.
Meanwhile, Kartel and his three co-accused in the 2011 murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams will be heard in the Court of Appeal on February 19, 2018.
The three week trial was set on Tuesday, May 9 for the self-proclaimed ‘Worl Boss,’ real name Adidja Palmer, Shawn ‘Shawn Storm’ Campbell, Kahira Jones and Andre St John in the Appeals Court at a case management hearing.
