Last week, dancehall star Vybz Kartel was arrested for weed possession, a shock considering that the world’s perception of Jamaica is that it’s the second biggest weed loving country around (America being first). However, charges have become more serious for Kartel as he’s been hit with a murder charge as well stemming from an incident with a local promoter.

According to reports, Kartel along with others murdered Barrington “Bossie” Burton on July 11th while he was standing with friends in Gregory Park. Kartel’s lawyers plan to fight the charges as a preliminary hearing is set for Friday.
