Vybz Kartel lays out a political platform in the “World Government” video

The dancehall legend’s new album To Tanesha is out January 10.

Vybz Kartel has maintained a successful music career since entering prison in 2014 on a life sentence for murder. Since he's still one of dancehall and Jamaica's most beloved figures, a run for public office isn't that hard to imagine. "World Government," Kartel's latest song and music video, outlines Vybz Kartel's political platform (a house and Mercedes for every impoverished child, free education, etc). It's easily the catchiest political anthem I've ever heard, and who knows, maybe one day it will become the theme for a real campaign: a Jamaican court is currently considering an appeal on Kartel's murder conviction.
