"It's a masterpiece, an album that encompasses the very essence of Adidja Palmer and, by extension, the Jamaican experience." "King Of The Dancehall will reinforce Vybz Kartel's status as not just another self-proclaimed king, but as the people’s champion," he continued. "The man who has created a movement like no other in dancehall."

Kartel is currently behind bars. His last album, Viking (Vybz Is King), arrived in 2015.
