It was reported today that Jamaican dancehall artist Vybz Kartel and seven other prisoners escaped the Horizon Adult Remand Centre in Jamaica on Tuesday night. Vybz Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, faces several charges of murder, possession of cannabis and illegal possession of a firearm.
But just when we started to get excited, reports were published claiming that the whole story was cock and bull!
Ok so this wasn’t exactly a great escape, but the rumour that one of the most controversial musicians in the world had broken out of jail was enough to make #WheresVybz a worldwide trending topic.
So Pappzd decided to gather a few of our favourite tweets from some UK urban stars to see how they took the news.
JME who’s never short of words had some wise ones for Kartel…
SB.TV’s Jamal Edwards also had something to say
Even Mr nice guy Loick Essien made a joke about it
Krept just kept it blunt…
But then Sneakbo, who has allegedly been in jail, retweeted one of Krept’s tweets. Hmm both him and Vybz must have escaped, most likely on a jet ski.
Even though the rumours were proven false by Jamaican police, the thought of Kartel making a prison break made us literally wet our pants and we don’t know about you but we think this is by far one of the best publicity stunts ever!
