As noted above, 2014 was as bright musically for Vybz Kartel as it was dark for him personally. “Miami Vice Episode,” one of two big Kartel tunes this year inspired by 1980s pop-culture memes (the other being “Rambo Kanambo”), was his biggest anthem in the clubs this year, its airy synths bringing a wave of feelgood vibes into any room it played. From the perspective of lyrics and dlow, though, nothing could touch “Do Di Maths (“Wah Do You?”), a classic Worl’ Boss shit-talk session addressing di yutes dem who Kartel ah mek star, if you catch his drift. —Jesse Serwer
