Dancehall Superstar Vybz Kartel, has escaped from the Horizon Adult Remand Centre early Wednesday morning. Vybz Kartel was being held on several murder charges, along with possession of marijuana. One guard suffered a heart attack during the escape, and two others were shot. This escape is the biggest in Jamaica’s history, which involved 7 prisoners in total. At the present moment, 6 of the prisoners including Kartel, are still at large.
Vybz Kartel has been denied bail after being accused in not one but two, murders in Jamaica.
Police in that case say he’s responsible for the shooting death of Barrington “Bossie” Burton, a 27 year old businessman/promoter from a St. Catherine address.
Just weeks after those accusations he was once again named in a case, this time by Detectives from a Criminal Investigation Branch in Constant Spring, St. Andrew.
Now according to The Associated Press, Resident Magistrate Opal Smith has refused Kartel’s bail.
He did not give a reason for his decision and Kartel’s defense team has yet to comment.
Cat Washington sat down with Philly’s 107.9 Q Deezy VJ leaving no question unanswered about their past relationship.
On how she met Drake:
We met on the set of “Best I Ever Had.” It was real cool! We sat on the bleachers on set directed by Kanye [West]. Having fun, tweeted each other back and forth–real cool. Never thought it would go anywhere just cool, kicking it. The next thing you know I’m in Toronto and we’re having dinner.
He flew me out to Toronto and we started kicking it and liking each other. One flight turned into ten, then the next thing you know I got a toothbrush in there and it’s on.
How long did it take for you to get from just dating to a relationship?
Like a month. It was like 0 to 60.
You moved to Toronto?
Yeah, I was actually there and packed up and was like “I’m out….I’m in love.”
Did you meet his mom?
Yeah, she’s a very nice lady.
Did she know you like, “Oh, what’s your name again?” or she KNEW you?
Well, at first it was like that but then it was like, “Oh this hoe is still around, huh? Oh, she’s still here.” After a while it was like, “Hey, Mom!” I’m from Philly and I’m in Toronto now…that’s my boo.
How long did it take you to go from condom to no condom?
That’s assuming there was ever one involved.
On if she was in love with Drake:
Of course, it was an awesome relationship. I was in love, he was in love and by the way in the song he said he was in love, so don’t try to switch it up now. I never mentioned you, you mentioned me. It was good. I’m talking family dinners and we in Whole Foods pushing the cart around. It was a regular relationship. I was in love and he was in love but at the end of the day he started getting a little bit too loose. Meaning he pops up in the tabloids with Maliah, trips to Jamaica that I wasn’t invited to or never heard about. I’m from Philly and we don’t go for that.
It’s a problem [when] you had the kind of relationship we had. That was my dude; it wasn’t somebody I was just kicking it with. If you were just kicking it, you can do what you wanna do but I was yours and you were mine.
On if he gave her gifts:
He’s a very kind-hearted individual. We traveled a lot and we shopped so of course the price tag got a little expensive. A car, bills paid..but we were together so it wasn’t like he was tricking.
On if he’s well endowed:
He is a phenomenal “peach eater” and he is black and Jewish and the black side is Mandingo.
On why they broke up:
Well, we broke up because I wanted to do The Bad Girls Club 2 and that was a whole big issue too. I was like, ‘I have my own career and I need to move forward’ and he was kind of like ‘I really don’t want you to go on there and embarrass me.’ I was like, ‘Well, you know my career is my career. You know you’re Drake and you’re cool but I need to be cool too. I can’t sit around and try to get pregnant by you and be a baby mama. I need to make a career for myself.’
Vybz Kartel is currently in jail awaiting an October 26th hearing where he’s expected to answer charges of murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm in relation to the shooting death of Barrington “Bossie” Burton, a 27 year old businessman/promoter from a St. Catherine address.
Detectives from Criminal Investigation Branch in Constant Spring, St. Andrew issued another murder charge against Kartel and Kiro Jones aka “Ray Jones,” on Monday evening.
This is the second count of murder he has been charged with over the past three weeks.
It had been reported weeks earlier that a badly burnt body was found in a building believed to be owned by the self-proclaimed “World’ Boss.”
Vybz Kartel has been charged with murder.
Kartel is accused of killing a 27-year-old promoter Barrington “Bossie” Burton in Jamaica on July 11th, 2011.
Vybz was arrested yesterday and charged by the Major Investigation Task force, after being arrested in Kingston last week for marijuana possession.
Reports state that the initial arrest occurred, so police could hold Vybz until he was officially charged in the murder of Burton.
Vybz was charged with illegal possession of a firearm, murder and conspiracy to murder.
Vybz kartel Arrested On Ganja Charge + POLICE sources have indicated that Deejay Vybz Kartel is being questioned in relation to a body that was found in a house reportedly owned by him in Havendale, St Andrew. The body was found a few weeks ago the source said.

A man has admitted to shooting rap star Tupac Shakur in 1994 after allegedly being paid $2,500 dollars by James ‘Jimmy Henchman’ Rosemond inside Manhattan’s Quad Studios in November of 1994.
Dexter Isaac, a former friend of Rosemond, is an inmate currently serving life in prison for murder, robbery and other offenses.
Isaac came forward Wednesday (June 15) with the information on the eve of what would be Tupac’s 40th birthday. (Read his statement here.)
He confessed to his involvement in the November 30th, 1994 shooting of Tupac Shakur, after Jimmy Henchman identified him in a statement, relating to Henchman’s indictment for dealing numerous kilos of cocaine.
“I want to apologize to his family [Tupac Shakur] and for the mistake I did for that sucker [Jimmy Henchman],” Dexter Isaac said from prison. “I am trying to clean it up to give [Tupac and Biggie’s] mothers some closure.”
Henchman, who is currently on the run from Federal officials, claimed that Dexter Isaac, along with other incarcerated inmates were cooperating with the government in an investigation of his alleged drug dealing activities.
“If the government is relying on informants like Winston “Winnie” Harris, a convicted drug dealer and Jamaican deportee, who came to me and motioned via hand signal that he was forced to wear a wire and begged me to skip town or Dexter Isaac who is serving life in prison plus 30 years, then I’m sure I will not be offered a fair trial,” Henchman said in May of 2011.
