Earlier this month, police accused the rapper of conspiring with others to kill a 27-year-old music promoter who was gunned down on a street corner.

Assistant Police Commissioner Ealan Powell tells the Jamaica Gleaner that Kartel is being investigated “in connection with a number of murders, shootings and gunrunning.''

Kartel's defense attorney could not be reached about the latest allegations on Tuesday.

Kartel is known for sexually explicit and violent lyrics.
