Incarcerated dancehall artiste Vybz Kartel has released a holiday song which has his fan base believing that he’ll be out of prison for the Christmas holiday.

In the song Beautiful Island, the DJ sings, “I’m coming home, it’s a holiday, America cyaa hol mi now, Christmas a JA, what a happy crowd, weh de dance dem deh, country come a town.”

Some fans saw the song as Kartel announcing that he will be out in time for the Christmas, which has generated a buzz on social media.

Kartel was sentenced to life imprisonment in 2014. He’s to serve 35 years of that sentence before becoming eligible for parole. He’s currently appealing the conviction and sentence.

He was sentenced along with Shawn ‘Storm’ Campbell and Kahira Jones for the killing of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams.
