COVER STAR: Kartel suits up for Buzzz.
Vybz Kartel is spending his "summer-time" in high style, at least on the cover and in the pages of Buzzz Magazine's August issue. The ace deejay dons a vividly deep purple suit to grace the cover then switches to an assortment of ensembles, including a straight-jacket (!) for his photo-spread and interview, "The Lighter Side of Kartel".
On the heels of his recent show-closing performance at Dancehall Night at Reggae Sumfest, the entertainer gets candid with the magazine about his rapidly expanding music empire, his penchant for attracting controversy, and what's up next in his professional and personal lives.
"Vybz Kartel is a superior, if not the best, lyricist in dancehall today, and an extremely clever and intelligent man," observes Buzzz in describing the artiste, who recently put out a new album (Kingston Story) and is getting set to launch his hotly anticipated TV reality series, Teacha's Pet, featuring a batch of women vying for his attention and affection. The August issue is out now and available at bookstands and other outlets islandwide.
