Vybz Kartel

Vybz Kartel could legally be dropping new music soon.

Vybz Kartel looks set to become a part of the Rehabilitation of Offenders through Music Program, which allows inmates to record music while behind bars.

According to producer Mikie Bennett, the incarcerated Dancehall superstar has formally requested to be part of the program.

Bennett, who is a part of the rehabilitation program says he is looking forward to working with the entertainer.

The producer revealed that Vybz Kartel had previously opted not to be a part of the program by choice.

The program, which began in 2004, currently operates at the Tower Street (General Penitentiary) and St Catherine Adult correctional centers.

Conceptualized by Superintendent Gladstone Wright, the program scored hit singles such as Jah Cure’s “Behind These Prison Walls.”

Vybz Kartel is currently awaiting the ruling of his appeal to have his murder conviction overturned, continues to be a prolific force, dominating the Dancehall music scene from behind bars.
