Up to di Timing

Vybz Kartel debuts to the yard and the world

But it's the cocky "Start Well" that might prove to be prophetic. Over a beat that sounds programmed from a telephone keypad, he broadcasts his plans to "make reggae bigger than rock and roll/Me make it bigger than hip-hop and soul." It's enough to make one believe the rules have really changed -- that the velvet ropes across the States are irrelevant. Even mainstream America seems to understand that the party's in the yard, where there's plenty of room for Kartel and Elephant Man. Commercial rappers, soul children, and rock and rollers, consider yourselves lucky if they can squeeze you in.
