Video: Vybz Kartel, “Sweet Victory”


Since Vybz Kartel's pum pum tracks tend to dominate airwaves and dancefloors, sometimes we forget how deep and beautiful he sounds when he's in introspective mode. "Sweet Victory," on the Chase riddim, is built-up sorrow embodied, and in the video he looks like a blunt-smoking, gilded monument to a heavy conscience. He and Mavado might be the earth's best modern-day blues singers. (via Dancehall Mobi)
