Wow.  Was kind of being a sensationalist blogger, and now people are catching murder charges and what not.  According to The Winnipeg Free Press:

KINGSTON, Jamaica – One of Jamaica’s most popular deejays has been charged with murder.

A police statement issued Monday evening says dancehall star Vybz Kartel was charged with murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm.

Police accuse the rapper, whose real name is Adijah Palmer, of conspiring with others to kill a 27-year-old promoter who was slain on a street corner earlier this year.

Up until this moment in my life I had never watched as Jamaican newscast.  I didn’t realize what I was missing out on.  If a rapper was smart he would sample the anchor saying “ganja”. On the Vybz Cartel front I must admit I am not that familiar with him.  I know he was catching hell for bleaching his skin, and now it appears as if the Jamaican authorities have arrested him for possession of marijuana.  Kind of sucks.  Spotted at RR.
