Mavado or Kartel

Vybz Kartel and Mavado are not on good terms in Jamaica, the remix of ‘Gangsta’ by French producers Daddy & Hypa (D&H) is fast becoming a monster hit in France. The remix features Mavado, Vybz Kartel and newcomer Delus. You can listen to the Gangsta remix on the OutAroad music player on the right.

However, what we are here to discuss today is the feud between Mavado and Vybz - is it real or fake? team went on the street and these are the views of the people.

Mavado and Vybz Kartel have some personally issues going on, down to even the little kids them can tell that they are not friends. What I would love to know - were they real gangsters before them become entertainers? Them need fi pick which one them want to be because we can’t have kids looking up to them as role models, it might sounds crazy but a lot of teenagers look up to them.

Mi love dancehall music and mi love see a little clashing gwaan more time but from what mi see taking place since of late, the thing seems as if it’s turning into a gang war. Look how long Beenie Man and Bounty a clash and yuh never see them physically war each other. The only feud that I believed is fake is the feud between Beenie Man and Bounty.

With all the good things that are happening for Jamaica internationally, we don’t need this kind of negative vibes fi come steal the spotlight that was given onto us by our strong and hard working athletic team. I do not listen their songs but I listen the news and at least once or two times a year them headline the news.

Otis Wilson, Store Clerk, Age: 22
Anyone who thinks that these two are friends must be from another planet. How can this be fake when they are telling each other to s**k mother and who sex whose girl, isn’t that a bit too personal. In a real life not even you own cousin can tell you to s**k out your mother and get away with that. I love some of their songs but I am not going to like it when it gets too personal. Kartel and Mavado much more intelligent than that.

Alicia Fraser, Student, Age: 17
I think the feud between Kartel and Mavado is real in some way. So many incidents took place that would let anyone thinks that this is not just war of words but as real as Tupac and Biggie. Moreover, if they continued behaving like this both or one of them is going to go under the earth.

Vybz Kartel vs Mavado

Vybz Kartel a.k.a Addi the Teacha is denying claims that his Honda Accord motor car was firebombed by thugs who allegedly came to his posh residential home in the wee hours of the morning.

"Ridiculous!" a calm-sounding Vybz Kartel told a reporter this morning. "The Honda had an electrical problem and the fireman came and extinguished the blaze, that's all, my car was not firebombed."

kartel_mavado_thumb.jpgVybz Kartel has been involved in a lyrical clash with David 'Mavado' Brooks, a member of the Alliance in recent weeks, the two exchanging hardcore disses on the Martial Arts rhythm resurrected by Cordel 'Skatta' Burrell. Mavado's song, Dem a Fag, intimated that Kartel was a homosexual, while Kartel responded with equal vitriol in Wah Dat Fah? suggesting that he had sexual intercourse with Mavado's mother and reiterated rumours that Mavado's brother was an effeminate homosexual.

"At the end of the day, Jamaicans should know it's just music, no physical altercation. Mi no have nothing against David. If he does against me, I don't see it. My focus now is on positive songs like Money Fi Spend, Million by a Morning, and Life Sweet, uplifting songs for Jamaica, so don't expect me to perform those clash songs onstage, just regular thug anthems and daggering songs. Money over war," he said.
