Words by Jesse Serwer—
Vybz Kartel’s absence has forced video directors to get creative, as Kartel’s continued popularity, in spite of his incarceration on two separate murder charges, necessitates promotion of the massive amount of material the Werl’ Boss left in his wake. The latest example is “My Crew,” from Kartel’s Kingston Story LP, re-issued today in physical form by Vice Records after a phyical-only 2011 release through Mixpak Records. The video spotlights the breadth of Kartel-themed graffiti in the area of Portmore known as Gaza City, as well as the area’s youth, from likkle pickneys jumping over a gully to bandana-clad young men pouring liquor down from rooftops.
