Vybz Kartel, “Lightning Bolt” MP3


Jamaican Usain Bolt set a world record for the 100-meter dash on Sunday, speeding to the finish in an unprecedented and nigh absurd 9.58 seconds—which inspired Vybz Kartel to immediately hit the studio and memorialize the freakish sprinter. The song is only two minutes long so it feels nearly as quick as Bolt's record, but it's notable that Vybz sounds audibly STOKED, singing with a glorious wail and proudly repping the Jamaican flag. The Times writes, "Jamaica is the cradle of sprinting now, and all those curious to know just how fast Bolt might have gone if he had not stopped trying 20 meters before the finish in Beijing now have a much clearer answer. Assuming ratification, the time to beat is 9.58 seconds. And for now, only one man appears capable of playing this game." Bolt also dragged his feet at the start of this one. Vybz puts it more succinctly: "The fastest man in the history of the worrllllllldddddd!"
