2Vybz Kartel

Kartel has the most hits in dancehall and that's a fact, no dancehall artist has dominated the industry for as long as he did and is still doing even from behind bars and the fact he writes all his songs himself is just incredible, all of the artist on this list had or have ghost writers and they still haven't put out as much hits as the great vybz kartel

The most versatile artist in the game, unfortunately incarceration has hindered his career from reaching its full potential.

Vybz Kartel possibly has the most successful dancehall career within Jamaica and the Caribbean. He has hit after hit and has the biggest influence over Jamaica than any of these artists ever had.

Kartel every time people

Sean Paul I think you are best artist in the world

6Buju Banton

Voice of the Jamaican people unfortunately hindered by incarceration

I live you Buju I always did n will bless

Buju is the most talented Dj, the only thing that has pulled him back is his stand against homosexuality.

Buju is the best

8Beenie Man

He stay current, where a lot of artist has fallen off. He still finds hits and his stage performance and presence is second to none in dancehall. He also had mainstream success and still stayed relevant in Jamaica.

Great Artist and performer, he is a down to earth guy. He is always in touch with his root and likes to mingle with his people in Jamaica just like a normal person

Was and still is one of my favourite artists of all time

Good artist, the ladies favourite up until this day

15Shabba Ranks

The first dancehall artist to win a grammy award, the one who pioneered the crossover of dancehall music into the mainstream

Should be WAY higher on this list. Seriously people?

To be honest most of his songs only cause headaches and the beats are dry, only Songs I really like are Mr Loverman and Housecall

17Busy Signal

With the flow and lyrics of the best dj and adding melody that can match some good dancehall/reggae singers, Busy a.k.a the "Turf President", is the most talented and best dancehall artist of all time. To add to that, he has great live performance ability and effortlessly makes hits on a plethora of topics and variety of beats from multiple different genres.
