Adidja Palmer, gives the reader a history and current affairs lesson from the eyes of a ghetto youth in Jamaica. He uses his lyrics from his songs to guide the reader to the rationale for his music by positioning the reader into every day life in the Jamaican gaza. This book enlighten me to a lot of Jamaica's history, culture and societal behavior.
It has really proven the old saying "don't judge a book by its cover". The themes are very similar to many Caribbean countries such as Trinidad and Tobago and therefore while reading I was constantly shaking my head and saying, " wow! Overall I enjoyed this book.

I love the way it is structured by analysing the content of his lyrics. Kartel touches on every subject affecting Jamaican people -not just ghetto youths. From crime, politics, economy, the treatment of women, fatherless children, racism and abuse - Kartel voices his opinions with passion, realism and poignancy.
This is a must read for Jamaican black men. He has gained my respect in a way no other reggae artist could. While I may not agree with all his views, I appreciate him starting tge debate about tge future for ghetto people. Unlike any other reggae artist since Bob Marley he has used his talent and voice to create controversy and questions. I read it in three days and it inspired me a lot. Thank you Adidja Palmer.
Kartel has always said to expect the unexpected. Can Vybz Kartel change Jamaica for the better from behind bars? Whilst doing this, he has been summoned to Jamaica House by the Prime Minister, invited to the podium of esteemed Universities by learned professors and brought to West Kingston by the man known as the "President of Jamaica," Christopher 'Dudus' Coke, to show the people the unity between him and his rival Movado.
This was all accomplished while being banned from entering or having his music played in several countries. Naturally he has become the man that Jamaica loves to hate and the person that many hate that they love.
At the time of publishing this book, Vybz Kartel remains in custody at the Horizon Remand Centre having been charged with two murders along with multiple other criminal offenses. However, Kartel has vowed not to be silenced and has used this book as a medium to expose what, he believes, has been the societal ills, injustices and suffering endured by his people — the people of the Ghetto.
This book should be read by every Jamaican and any person who is interested in the real Jamaica. Kartel exposes some political secrets, other issues that are so taboo that they have been swept under the rug and downright lies told by politicians.
Palmer and his co-author both confess that they anticipate consequences from the powers that be for daring to write this book and exposing all to the masses. Email us your pics at realworlbossfans vybzkartel. Just kidding. About Jamaican life.
Why do you think he is such a compelling figure? Well, two things.
