This question has been lingering in the dancehall hemisphere for a while now. It’s on everyone lips, Alkaline has been having a superb year releasing hits after hits with wavey songs like “formula”, and  “City” to name a few.

It’s one of the few years in the past ten years that an artist has gone head to head with the self-proclaim “World Boss” a.k.a Vybz Kartel in releasing consistent hit songs.

Alkaline has been compared to Vybz Kartel in every single public forum that the two artists have graced since their duo inception. You have to wonder though if Vybz Kartel holds a sympathetic edge over Alkaline due to his untimely incarceration.

Does sympathy from the fans maintains Vybz Kartel’s legacy and credibility as Dancehall’s Pied piper? Do fans refuse to credit Alkaline for his meteoric rise due to their allegiance to Vybz Kartel?
