Vybz Kartel has no plans to record in prison, says lawyer

Vybz Kartel 2014The life sentence handed down Thursday to convicted Jamaican entertainer, Vybz Kartel could mean the end of his music career, with his lawyer saying the deejay will not be recording while serving time.

That now appears to be a moot point.
