According to Vybz Kartel, other artists have been copying his style since his emergence over a decade ago.

“Most artists since 2002 have been biting my style,” Vybz Kartel said. “Listen dancehall flow and vocabulary before Kartel’s emergence and listen it now, since I came. I set the new millennium benchmark for dancehall.”
