    On Friday, July 6, Adidja Palmer aka Vybz Kartel is set to release his best body of work catalogued in his book, Voice of the Jamaican Ghetto. Sam Cooke best describes Kartel's journey in his hit song Change is Gonna Come, writing "There's been times that I thought I wouldn't last for long but now I think I'm able to carry on. It's been a long, long time coming but I know a change is gonna come. Oh, yes it will." And for Jamaica, it has!
 
Kartel has always said to expect the unexpected. In a statement released May 2011, Kartel threatened to use the pedestal that 'Babylon' has put him on to fight for his people - 'Ghetto People.' Through this book, Kartel is signaling that the fight for change starts now. Can Vybz Kartel change Jamaica for the better from behind bars? He has vowed to and based on Kartel’s ability to use his lyrics to gather a following, it will be interesting how this initiative by Kartel will affect Jamaica. On the cover of his book, Kartel states “I pray this book helps to change Jamaica forever.”
 
Vybz Kartel and his co-author, Michael Dawson, completed the manuscript early summer 2011 and Voice of the Jamaican Ghetto was first copyrighted in the United States on August 5th, 2011. The publishers have worked assiduously on getting it right. The release of Voice of the Jamaican Ghetto, Kartel's first book, heralds a new dawn in the history of Jamaica.
