Vybz Kartel Up 2 Di Time
- Words: Ross Hogg
- Label: Greensleeves
Bounty Killer's former ghostwriter steps out of the shadows and into the limelight with his debut album, named for his trademark phrase. When you're the hottest dancehall act in Jamaica, you get the hottest riddims: Mad Ants, Egyptian, Time Travel and Krazy all get the Kartel treatment here. Vybz scores big on collaborations "New Millennium" (with Wayne Marshall) and "Kartel and Kardinal" (with Kardinal Offishall), as well as on boom tunes "Sweet To The Belly" and "Sen On." But the standout is "Robbery," in which Kartel jacks Busta Rhymes' hook from "Dangerous," 50 Cent's concept from "How To Rob" and all property from everyone in dancehall, his crew and producers included.
