'Bad Ras'cries for Kartel on youtube

A Rastafarian who goes by the name Bad Ras has uploaded a YouTube video where he cries for incarcerated deejay Vybz Kartel, asking Jah to forgive the deejay for his mistakes.

The minute and 34 seconds long video is called Kartel Case and shows the Rastaman holding a Gleaner in his hand while reading about Kartel's trial and beginning to cry (literal eyewater) while chanting a song.

The song, dedicated to Vybz Kartel, is a remake of Sizzla Kalonji's Dry Cry. It has received over 5,000 views thus far, with mixed reviews.

"Vybz Kartel look how yu career did start well until yu start beat di bwoy dem pon di Gaza Mi haffi dry cry fi Kartel it nuh easy fi yu lock behind cell. Whose fault? No one but yourself, yu didn't want to know Jah yu made a mistake. The devil influence yu just fi lock yu inna jail, just when yu career did start sell. Jah help yu pon di case, Jah help yu with the case even though yu bleach yu face," he chants.

The Rastaman also recalls some of Vybz Kartel's mishaps, hinting that they might be the cause of his present dilemma. His Sting altercation with iconic dancehall artiste Ninja Man and his split with mentor, Guinness Greatest Dancehall icon Bounty Killer, are singled out as some of Kartel's biggest blunders.

"Is that happening for real? Work fi the devil then yu get a raw deal. Still wanna wish you all the best even though you have the mark of the beast on your face. Bad blessing follow you from yu fight Ninja Man. Bounty Killer feed yu then yu turn and bite him hand then yu laugh and dis him inna song. Yu sey yu sex Mavado mother and that was wrong. Jah help yu pon di case, Jah help yu pon di case, even though yu bleach yu face. Forgive him Jah, forgive him Jah," the Rastaman cried.

Vybz Kartel and his co-accused are currently on trial for the alleged murder of Clive 'Lizard' Williams. If convicted, the deejay faces up to 25 years in jail. The trial is just as controversial as the artiste and has sparked much debate in media and entertainment circles.

Despite being incarcerated, the artiste recently won the award for Favourite Male Artiste at a local award show.
