Eminem And Vybz Kartel Throw A W.T.P.

Jamaican superstar Vybz Kartel turned Eminem’s trailer park fete into a Dancehall ‘bad man party’ with yesterday’s release of  the “W.T.P.” Remix. The original single is featured on Eminem’s latest album Recovery, currently positioned at #5 on Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart.

Produced by Jamaican-born Hip Hop/Dancehall producer Dwayne “Supa Dups” Chin-Quee, the “W.T.P.” remix is an up-tempo club banger that features colorful world play for the two renowned lyricists, with Kartel’s flossing braggadocio at the ‘bad man party’ and Eminem’s down-home carefree flow at his ‘w. t. party.’

Kartel, long known as Dancehall’s notorious lyrical terrorist, earned international acclaim with radio zinging singles like “Tekk,” “Gun Session,” “Ramping Shop,” “Dollar Sign (Mind Pon Mi Money),” and most recently “Clarks.” Kartel was named Male Deejay of the Year, Recording Artist of the Year, and Songwriter/Lyricist of the Year during the 2010 Excellence in Music and Entertainment Awards in Jamaica. He earned nominations for Best Reggae Artist from the 2010 MOBO Awards and the 2010 Soul Train Awards. Earlier this month, New York’s WBLS 107.5FM named Vybz Kartel “Caribbean Artist of the Year” on their popular Caribbean Fever program. 

Award-winning lyricist Eminem is the first artist to win Best Rap Album for three consecutive albums, and is ranked #9 on MTV’s list of Greatest MCs of All Time. In 2003, Eminem won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Lose Yourself” from the film 8 Mile, which he also starred in. His seventh studio album, Recovery, is reported to be the best selling album of 2010 by Billboard, with 3.42 million copies sold.
