Prospects were bleak for Vybz Kartel when in 2014 he was sentenced to life in prison for murder. Since then, however, a juror on his trail has been accused of bribing other jurors, making Kartel's release seem like an actually feasible prospect. While we wait on that and the Rihanna collaboration, two undated, previously unreleased recordings have surfaced. "Who Trick Him" catches the World Boss blustering over a riddim full of strings and 8-bit stabs, while "My Girl (Raw)" is a sex jam so lonely and urgent it could have been recorded in his Kingston cell.
