Prison walls can’t slow down Vybz Kartel.
The incarcerated dancehall hitmaker is gearing up to drop his new album Vybz Kartel VIKING (Vybz Is King), due in March.
Sources close to the former Portmore Empire boss told Dancehall HipHop that TJ Records and Adidjaheim Records have teamed up for the album.

“The album is coming and it will be big,” the source told us. “Expect some previously release and some brand new tracks on the album.”
“Addi [Vybz Kartel] say him want to take it to the streets this year and like I previously told you guys there is a huge catalog of previously recorded unreleased material we have working with,” the source disclosed.
“Fans can look out for Vybz Is King because Vybz Kartel is the king of dancehall,” the source added.
Vybz Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, was convicted of murder in March last year. He along with three of his co-accused were given life sentences and will have to serve three decades before being eligible for parole.
The body of their murder victim, Clive “Lizard” Williams, has still not being found.
Vybz Kartel is appealing the conviction.
Just last week law enforcement officials uncover a plot to murder the dancehall star behind bars. A fellow inmate and a prison staff were charged in the alleged plot.
