Foota Hype is pushing back against anyone who says he can’t shell a party without playing Vybz Kartel music.
The veteran sound system selector posted a video on IG of himself shelling a party by playing back to back Kartel songs. Some Gazanation fans commented using a famous Kartel line “what’s a party without Vybz Kartel.” Foota Hype quickly pushed back saying “Don’t fool yourself it can be done by talented selectors remember I tell you that.”
The problem here for Foota Hype is that he hasn’t proven that it can be done or perhaps he doesn’t consider himself as a talented selector. There is no doubt that he is one of the most iconic disc jockeys in dancehall, but can he shell a dancehall session without playing a single Vybz Kartel song?
Kartel, who has been behind bars since 2011, manages to stay relevant in dancehall over the past decade. His music is being played on the airwaves and in parties more than any other deejays and his fan base has grown significantly despite some young new acts taking a slice of pie like Alkaline, Popcaan, and Masicka.
Foota Hype is also a longtime supporter of Vybz Kartel but let’s see if the Worl’Boss will react to this news.
