Mavado has Sent a clear message to Vybz kartel telling him “mi a wait till you come out”. After vybz kartel released “step” aimed at mavado.

For a moment it seems like Vybz Kartel was stepping in to fight Popcaan’s battle but turns out that’s not the case. Sources are telling us that Kartel and Mavado have a friendly rivalry going on and he has a ton of diss tracks in his arsenal.

VYBZ Kartel and Mavado, two of Jamaica’s most renowned dancehall artistes, have achieved what many Jamaicans have not been able to do in a lifetime. They were able to get the full attention of the Jamaican government which invited them to a summit at Jamaica House. They both represent and symbolise two competing factions, Gaza and Gully respectively.

These two G factions are not unlike our two P factions, the Jamaica Labour Party and the People’s National Party which have divided and ruled this country for decades. In the case of the Gs, music has been the compelling and inspiring force, while for the Ps it has been primarily about the distribution of the spoils of office and scarce benefits.

In both cases, it is the poorer class of people with a generous sprinkling of the middle class that comprise most of their avid followers. Needless to say, factions in Jamaica of whatever ilk tend to be factious as well as fractious. In other words, war is usually an option, whether it be verbal, physical or psychological. And given the fact that many of these followers are not very well educated and informed, they are likely to be easily led and influenced in whatever direction their leaders want to take them.
