Vybz Kartel - Jailhouse Interview @ FOX 5
08/19/2021 by Reggaeville
Vybz Kartel, imprisoned for allegedly committing a murder a decade ago, speaks exclusively with FOX 5 NY's Lisa Evers about prison, his mental health, and his legal saga.
About Kartel's legal appeal to the highest court in the UK, Lisa Evers reports:
"A lot is on the line. He could be a free man by 2022 or an inmate for 30 or more years."
Lisa Evers: You say you are in a better place mentally than physically. A lot of people would find that hard to believe.
Vybz Kartel: Yeah because, I was sick for a few years, so definitely I'm recovering physically, but mentally I've always been in a good place because I know I'm innocent and I know I'm coming out.
Lisa Evers: Do you really believe that?
Vybz Kartel: Yes of course I believe that, and to be totally honest, the system really wanted me thrown away, it was never about me being charged for a murder, it was about getting rid of Vybz Kartel, not Adidja Palmer, the person.
Lisa Evers: You've had a lot of songs come out since you being incarcerated, about how many songs have you written during this last decade, that you have behind bars?
Vybz Kartel: Lots of songs. I can't even count. At one point I was sending out like 3,4 books a month because when I write the songs, I usually send the books out when I get visits, thousands of songs really. And I know not all of them are going to be able to get released maybe in the span of my career, but I just keep, you know, writing, and writing... makes me better.
