Although he remains incarcerated, dancehall icon Adidja 'Vybz Kartel' Palmer will release a new studio album later this month.
The album, titled Kartel Forever: Trilogy, will be available in CD and digital format as of September 24. The album boasts 60 tracks on a three-disc album and will feature previously unreleased singles and numerous hits from recent years.
Hailed as the World Boss, Kartel is known for his stimulating lyrics and provocative ploys off stage. The deejay is said to be determined to stay atop his dancehall throne and keep his fans satisfied until his inevitable return to the studio to make music for the masses.
"I want to thank all my supporters for your love and unfailing support throughout these trying times. Even though I am incarcerated, I am still up to the time. This album shows that I get stronger with each passing second. Tad's plus Adidjaheim Records is a sick formula and the result is Kartel Forever: Trilogy. Worl' Boss fullstop," .
With the slew of songs Kartel currently has on the streets, Kartel Forever: Trilogy, provides a vivid kaleidoscope of his continued evolution as an extraordinary artiste. Despite the geographic limitations of the artiste, his music speaks volumes, as is evident from his continued surge in popularity, especially over the past two years.
The first official single from the album is School, a call to action for youths. The single was produced by Tanesha 'Shorty' Johnson under her new label, Short Boss. The other singles propelling the album are Business andCompass.
Apart from these three singles, the three-disc collection also includes some of Kartel's biggest hits in recent years, including Cake Soap, Summer Time, Dumpa Truck/That Sweet Yuh, and Benz.
Jamaican imprint Tad's Record enjoys a strong partnership with the entertainer and joins him on the journey of keeping his music alive.
"Producing and affiliating ourselves with projects that showcase exquisite craftsmanship is something that, as a company, we at Tad's Record take great pride in doing. Therefore, working with the World Boss Mr Palmer himself again, after the exceptional successes of our first project together Pon Di Gaza 2.0, was a no-brainer. "Sublime" is the one word that sums up the album Kartel Forever: Trilogy," states Tad Dawkins, president of Tad's Record.
The explicit version of Kartel Forever: Trilogy will be available in CD format in stores, while both clean and explicit versions will be available digitally.
