After years of featuring in songs and not being a part of the music video shoots due to his incarceration, Vybz Kartel’s feature in Sixteen with Rvssian and Trippie Redd shows him in an AI version, similar to his appearance in his Stay Clean collab with Valiant, but with more life-like qualities.
Sixteen is a song that touches on longevity, battling the odds, rising against foes, and a treasured friendship. The song, accompanied by vibrant visuals, dropped at midnight and has already garnered over 56,492 views and 11K likes.
At the beginning of the track, Vybz Kartel sings, “Mi nuh wah be nuh picture pan nuh button, mi a di goat, mi nuh wah tun nuh mutton. Yah mi bredda enuh Tarik and mi love yuh.”
Vybz Kartel’s AI clone is the first to be seen in the music video, following photos of him and Rvssian. The youthful version of the Dancehall King is seated with a vest on and Rvssian, born Tarik Johnston, is seen in the second scene wearing a mask, and another shot shows him with his crew.
The camera returns to Kartel seated on steps with his arms crossed and later on in the video, shows Trippie Redd. The visuals also include a child doing stunts on a bicycle, children playing, and people in a community.
In reaction to the video, viewers praised the song in the comments section, with some saying, “Glad to see Vybz kartel doing big behind bars bring tears to my eyes hope u get better tru your heart illness my prays king,” “Yes this is a certified banger RVSSIAN. Vybz never dissapoint,” and, “This is a SMASHING HIT.”
