2 Vybz 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.

He is my best dancehall artist in the world..No one absolutely can be compared to him.

4 Bounty Killer

Bounty killer boss the most artist in my opinion he is the best

Bounty killer is one of the best of all time. he contributed by far the most to dancehall and is still doing so

Controversial, Bounty has always kept it real.

Bounty killer is the best hands down;
talent wise none can actually DJ like him. He has never used auto tune. none can perform like him. None can have the impact he does. Dominating, impressive he is the deejay that brought prestige, class, professionalism and self worth to this game. What an artiste. 99.9% of the other artiste a sell out - run gone live America, care only about money, gone on tour everyday and don't get paid.
Real boss artiste

Consistently creating music watch out for 2016 which will be his year- hits include - moving mountains, things me love, more than happy, how it feel, champion boy many more etc...- Alkaline is believed to be the heir to the throne of dancehall after vybz Kartel

He is on his way to becoming the king of dancehall

Alkaline the youngest and top make me lean more about the sound. Alka is the best always

8 Beenie 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

19 Shabba 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?

Shabba is a legend yet to be equalled!

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

20 Anthony B

He is truly a good singer
