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.

The legendary

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
