So me say pull up yuh pants and put it pon yuh waist and tuck in your shirt and don’t bleach your face.” A man who stands charged with the crime of murder, Kartel was deemed a criminal long before his arrest due to his explicit lyrics and his controversial practice of lightening his own skin—and marketing his own “Cake Soap” to fans.
