Vybz Kartel was not among the five names nominated for the 2017 MOBO Award for Best Reggae Act and his are furious.

The list of nominees for the 2017 Music Of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards for Best Reggae Act came out last week and all five nominees are local Jamaican artists. Popcaan, Alkaline, Aidonia, Chronixx, and Damian Marley are the five nominees this year. A lot of dancehall fans are again questioning why Vybz Kartel was snubbed despite having a massive year last year which continues into this year.

“The system trying to fight against the boss [Vybz Kartel] but they can’t stop him,” one fan wrote. “Kartel had a bigger year than Popcaan, Aidonia, and Alkaline and yet he was not nominated for a MOBO are you kidding me. This is utter nonsense and that’s why people can’t take these awards serious anymore.”

Fans echoed some similar sentiments last year when the deejay was not nominated. There is an underlining reason why Vybz Kartel may not get a MOBO nomination, at least as long as he is behind bars he may never get a nomination per the rules of the award show. Additionally, MOBO is based in the UK where most radio stations are barred from playing songs from convicted felons who are serving time behind bars like Vybz Kartel who is doing life for a murder case.

One fan criticized those fans who are angry at Kartel’s MOBO snub while drawing reference to his album sales numbers last year. “Don’t make music fool you prison is taking a hold on Vybz Kartel Now you cannot be in prison for murder and get the mobo award and apart from that he’s not doing any live performance 3249 in 15 weeks sales for the top dancehall artists of 2016 that’s a shame on dancehall and Vybz Kartel the great Shabba Ranks used to sell millions and Beenie Man gaza fans please don’t even brag about it on YouTube 3249 copies that’s a shame on Kartel?” Joel wrote.

Despite being incarcerated since 2011, he has remained in the top echelon of dancehall with a consistent supply of new music. Last year, he came under investigation under orders directly from the Ministry of National Security for allegations that he has been recording music in prison, something that would be illegal and could potentially send him into solitary confinement. Nevertheless, new music continues to pour out of Vybz Kartel coffers like hot bread and he is showing no signs of slowing down.

Want you bad, want you bad, want you bad
Saw you in the [?]
You bad, you got me good, never turn back (ooh)

Coming at you, coming at you, coming at you
Never seen a girl do this before

[Chorus: Charli XCX]
If you want to put, put, put, put it on me
You’re gonna get, get, get, get it on me
Come on put that dirty sexy money on me, on me, on me
You got that pla, pla, pla, pla
You wanna do, do, do, do it freaky
Sweat it boy [?]
Come on put that dirty sexy money on me, on me, on me
You got that pla, pla, pla, pla

The Toronto rap mogul threw himself a massive birthday party at Poppy on Monday night in Los Angeles and a ton of celebrities came out to support him. Among the famous names at the party includes G-Eazy, Jordan Clarkson, Leo DiCaprio, apl.de.ap of the Black Eyed Peas, Swae Lee from Rae Sremmurd, Tobey Maguire, Lamar Odom and more.

The fun-filled weekend for Drizzy and his crew started in Toronto where he hosted a party in his hometown. He then moved the celebration to Los Angeles where he had dinner with his friends and family at Catch LA rooftop. His father Dennis Graham was also there to help him celebrate the occasion and was also present at Poppy.

His dad surprised the birthday boy with 31 bottles of Perrier-Jouët champagne and lead a singing session of happy birthday. Later in the night, we’re told that Drake took the DJ table to spin a couple records. Drake is half Jewish.

Nicki Minaj will not be testifying in her brother’s highly publicized rape case and for good reasons.

The hip hop superstar’s older brother Jelani Maraj is currently on trial for allegedly raping an 11-year-old girl. Last week, Page Six reported that Nicki Minaj will be a star witness in the high profile trial that could send her brother to prison for life. The 11-year-old victim is his stepdaughter and she told authorities that Maraj had sex with her up to four times per week. The rapper’s brother legal team also told reporters that she will take the stand in his defense.

Despite the reports of Nicki Minaj testimony in the trial, sources told Dancehall HipHop that she is fully supporting her brother, but will not be taking the stand. “The talks of her [Nicki Minaj] testifying are just not true,” sources told us. “She is supporting her brother by paying his legal fees and giving him moral support, but she will not be testifying.” We’re told that Nicki Minaj team strongly advised her against testifying telling her that he could be damaging for her brand. “It’s a difficult decision for her because this is her brother and she loves her family, but this is just too much of a risk for her brand,” sources around the Trinidadian rapper told us.

Jelani Maraj’s rape trial is currently underway in a long island court and Nicki will not be going to court. Jelani’s wife, Jacqueline Robinson, told Nicki Minaj that she could make the case go away for $25 million. Of course, the rapper did not bite so the case now goes to trial. The Assistant District Attorney Emma Slane told jurors in court that the little girl’s younger brother, who was 8 years old at the time, was the first person to reveal the sexual abuse to child services who then called the cops.

Investigators got a search warrant and went to the house where they recovered a pajama stained with her stepdad’s semen. The boy also testified in the trial that his stepfather spanks him for walking in on him having sex with his older sister in a spare bedroom. The defense attorney says this is all a ply by their mother, Jacqueline Robinson, to get money from Nicki Minaj, whom she has been obsessed with from day one.
