Vershon had Buju Banton, Vybz Kartel, Ninjaman and more on his mind when he was recording his new song “One More Day.”
The young dancehall deejay pays homage to three great reggae/dancehall icons who are currently incarcerated while also paying his respect to a few other acts who were murdered over the last few months. “I had a close one yesterday, jah put an angel over me, be strong and hold a firm meditation, one day things must get better, don’t you go down keep your head above the water, words from the great Buju Banton,” Vershon sings in the intro for the Dakrome Productions-produced single.
“When them talk me do like me no hear no man, nuff blame the system but me blame the devil, cuz’ a him make Worl’Boss deh a jail so long,” Vershons sings in the second verse. At the end of the song, he played some old recording of Buju Banton, Kartel and Ninjaman before their incarceration.
“Well I am going to tell you something, is one person you can’t beg for publicity stunt, almighty god, any one of you feel like you can play with god then something is going to reach you,” Ninjaman said while Kartel added in an old interview, “right now I am concern over both my life and both my freedom because maybe by now and next week you can hear that anything happen to Vybz Kartel.”

In the first three days, the movie racked up over 11 million viewers on Netflix, prompting the company to announce a sequel. Game Over seems like its the perfect get together with some friends and watch and laugh type of movie in the comfort of your home.

Thousands of fans turn out for the show which was held on the lawns of Jamaica House in St. Andrew on Saturday night. International acts like Wyclef Jean, Sting, and Doug E. Fresh helped generate more buzz about the cause this year which helped Shaggy achieved his goal of raising $1 million for the Bustamante Hospital For Children. Since the inception of the benefit concert in 2009, the Make A Difference Foundation has raised over US$1.5 million for the top children’s hospital in the Caribbean. This year’s funds will go towards the expansion of the hospital’s ICU.
Vybz Kartel is either just trolling us or confirming that he has been recording music in prison.
Since December, Kartel has been very active on Instagram, a tool he used to keep his fans up-to-date with his new music and post new photos of himself and his kids. On Monday, he shared a meme which pretty much expressed how he feels about his haters. “When badmind a wait fi hear seh Vybz Kartel stop voice inna prison,” the meme reads. In short, he is taking shots at his haters who want to see him stop recording music behind bars.
In 2016, Vybz Kartel broke his silence about the controversial issue of him recording music in prison. Not only did he dismissed the claims, he also said electronic devices are not permitted in prison which begs the question how is he able to be on Instagram so frequently?
“I’ve always been a prolific songwriter, and I record at breakneck speed as well, so I have a lot of surplus material to choose from,” the dancehall deejay told Rolling Stone. “There is a recording studio at another correctional facility [in Jamaica] but none here … cellphones, laptops, or any Internet-capable instrument are prohibited items.”
That same year, the National Security Minister ordered the department of corrections to conduct an investigation to determine if Vybz Kartel and other musicians are illegally recording music in prison. The investigation came up empty-handed, but the prison reinforced its security operation while also installing cellphone jamming devices. It’s also illegal for Vybz Kartel to be recording music in prison and if caught, he could be sent to solitary confinement and faced other penalties.
Nevertheless, he has been dropping more music than even artists who are free and his team has been saying that his slew of new music s from previously recorded unreleased material. That still doesn’t explain how Kartel has been deejaying about things that are happening now and he has been incarcerated since 2011. Unless he is a time traveler.
Nicki Minaj and Safaree Samuels belong with each other, according to Maury Povich.
Since their breakup in 2014 over, both Nicki Minaj and Safaree have dated other people but one thing they both have in common now and that is, they are both single. SB has dated a bunch of females since joining Love and Hip Hop and not of those relationships worked out. He even suffered some embarrassment at the hands of a few of the ladies including Sophia Body who put him on blast during an interview and Star Divine who gave away all his stuff that was at her home after accusing him of cheating.
Nicki Minaj, on the other hand, has dated Meek Mill and Nas although she never really confirmed the later. Her relationship with Meek ended bitterly a year ago, while her split with Nas took place over the holidays. Maury says he knows a good love story when he sees one and the two former flames should give it a try again. “Uncle Maury knows a little something about love [Safaree Samuels] and [Nicki Minaj] why not try it again?” Maury tweeted on Monday.
Whether or not these two will ever get back together is a very long shot given the hatred that has developed between them over the past three years. SB even said in a past interview with Wendy Williams that he will never get back together with the Young Money rapper whom he dated for over a decade. That’s a lot of history so even with the bad blood between them now, you just never know what may happen.
Safaree himself regularly keep track of the happenings with Nicki Minaj only and last week he commented on a story about her split with Nas. “Yup, we’ve both been having bad luck in this department… Sigh Rastafari… Ain’t no hope in these streets,” he wrote.

Nas and Kelis have made peace at least temporarily for the sake of their son.
The former couple reached a custody agreement in their ongoing custody battle over their 8-year-son. Just a few weeks ago, Nas complained to a judge that Kelis has been hostile to him and is preventing him from seeing his son as per their previous agreement, TMZ reported. There were some rumors that she might have been jealous of the rap icon dating rapper Nicki Minaj and perhaps this is mere coincidence, but they reached an agreement just days after news of the relationship’s demise surfaced.
The couple’s new agreement will see Nas has his son Knight for extended periods like weekends which begins on Fridays after school and runs through to Sunday night or Monday night if it’s a three-day weekend like when a holiday falls on Monday. This new setup will cover January through to March when they are expected to hammer out a more permanent custody agreement.
As part of the agreement, the couple agrees that both parties will not expose their son to social media, which means you will not see Nas or Kelis post any pictures of their son. In his most recent court filing, Nas called Kelis hostile and says she deliberately prevents him from spending quality time with his son. He argued that she only allows him to see Knight when it was convenient for her and has little regards for his wishes to see the 8-year-old. Seems co-parenting is harder than it seems, but at least these two came to the table and worked something out.
As for the rap legend’s career, many fans are hoping that they will get an album from him this year although no formal announcement was made. Nicki Minaj would have been a great stepmom but perhaps she wanted her own child.
