  People, mi woulda like fi know wah Michael Dawson, co-author of the 'Voice of the Jamaican Ghetto book' wid Kartel was drinking or smoking when him attempt fi try say Kartel is a "reluctant freedom fighter". WTF!!!!
Whatever it was, mi want a double dose of that. Yu have people wid lots of intelligence but no brains. This young man, Vybz Kartel, is a deejay who sing some pussy songs fi mek the gal dem clit jump, and some bad man songs fi the shottas dem clean steel. Him know the right but choose to do the wrong, and that is why he is currently enjoying the comforts of the state-run institution, the Crossbar Hotel called the Horizon Remand Centre, and developing calluses on his right hand. 
Dawson was quoted by THE STAR as saying that the book focuses on the hypocrisy of Jamaica.
"It focuses on the classism, the racism, all the things that Kartel has talked about but which have never been highlighted.Kartel is what I would call a reluctant freedom fighter. He has sung those songs but he just never wanted to get involved in that because he didn't want to deal with the consequences that he thought would happen if he started this. In May last year he decided that he was going to do it, let the chips fall where they may," Dawson told the STAR.
So who is the fucking hypocrite now?
Defend Kartel all you want to sell your fucking book, but we will not accept your attempt to cast him in the garb of a freedom fighter, a kind of misunderstood Malcolm X stuck in the purgatory of a Third World Caribbean country. Fuck that shit, Mr. Dawson. Try that and we will be forced to hold yu mek a downtown gal piss inna yu head. Again.
Kartel had the chance to inspire a whole nation of disenfranchised youths, instead, he chose to be a power-hungry despot who could influence youths to walk the path of evil. He is a great artiste, but he is a soulless, moral-less charlatan who has ended up in the maw of a system that will just happily devour him. The system is hungry and it feeds on the ghetto youths,  it creates a system of deprivation and poverty that turns the weak-minded into criminals and then destroys said criminals. So Kartel is in the belly of the slow, molasses-crawling Jamaican justice system that has devoured the hopes and dreams of many ghetto youths. And he has no one to blame but himself and that is the unkindest cut of all. And I am sure that he is up late at nights when sleep is hard to find, debating those points in his mind. 
The only freedom Kartel is fighting for right now is his own. So Dawson, yu better go chuck headfirst pon a piece ah steel if yu tink say we ah go shell out our hard-earned dollars fi buy the egotistical rantings of a man who thinks that he is really smarter than he really is. And don't bother trying to send me a copy of this book to change my fucking mind. I will just use it as a door stop.
