Review Written by: Samuel Gardner
What’s a party without having some Vybz Kartel added to the playlist, not a party at all. Vybz Kartel latest E.P. lives up to its title “Party”
This project embodies eleven tracks filled with high energy and non-stop vibes. Released on the Tad’s Record label, Dj’s get your Seratos ready.
To start the party off on a good foot, Vybz digs a little in the crates and gives life to Admiral Bailey’s “Science Again” record on “Poco Man Skank” a bouncy track that will liquidate any stiff bones in the dancehall. Hopefully by the time the second track “Party” comes on you’ve made a trip to the bar and grab yourself a cup of Appleton, like the World Boss says, “live your life before you lose it” track three is the clean version of “Party” just in case they’re any tender ears lingering around.
Track four and five consist of the clean and explicit version of “Keep Him” where Kartel is doing his usual shout out to the women who do right by their other half and keep their body in one place.
Envy and Jealousy is a disease that consume the minds of many, including sometimes family members and “friends” on “Mind Dutty”
Kartel lyrically attacks those who wish to see him fall. “High School Dropout” is definitely a hustler’s anthem, Kartel tells the story of one who dropped out of the high school curricular activities but nonetheless found ways and means to survive and never refused to put his shoulder to the wheel.
You just never know what kind of adventure Kartel will take you on with his tracks and on “Taxi” it’s nothing less of just that. The last and eleventh track Mr. Palmer expresses his love for his culture and native country on “Jamaica Land We Love”
Overall this project is just in time for the summer cookouts, beach, backyard and cooler parties. Make sure to grab a copy from any digital outlet and streaming services, what good is a party without some vybz.
