Busta Rhymes says Vybz Kartel is not a clown like Rick James for his shock value antics

No Comments

"Vybz Kartel is a very intriguing artiste to work with... I don't really have nothing to think about his situation because I don't know all of the truth about it and it is none of my business. At the end of the day I just know about my experiences with him and I know what he does for me and music. He is an inspiring mother fucker and he work hard too.


The thing I found more intriguing is how he was able to evolve what the now reggae artiste should be like, whether you agree with it or you don't, his perspective of what the now reggae artiste should be is what differentiates him from everything that I have seen a long time in reggae artistes...He understands how to incorporate shock value with incredible music...He does things on the shock value level that we might look at as very crazy. I wouldn't say he say he was the Rick James of reggae because he is not a clown, that ain't Kartel.


He is still looked at as being very serious even though he is very entertaining. I just respect what he does with his music and I hope that his situation works out for him because he has a lot more to contribute".
