Top Reggae Star Gyptian Leaves the VP Record Label

Reggae Super-Star, Gyptian, announced his departure from VP Records due to the expiration of his contract.

Reggae Super Star Gyptian Leaves VP Records Music Group

Reggae star Gyptian

The ultra successful Reggae / Dancehall artist, who delivered Billboard topping albums ‘My Name is Gyptian’ in 2006, ‘I Can Feel Your Pain’ in 2008, ‘Hold You’ in 2010 and ‘Sex, Love, and Reggae’ in 2013, as well as earned multiple international awards and a gold-selling single, has reached the decision to move on from his lengthy stay with the label. “It has been a great journey with special memories made and I’m thankful for all the opportunities, but unfortunately I have decided to part ways with VP Music Group.”

The contract offered a clause in which VP Music Group could renew the option to continue making music with Gyptian, and after two years, the artist and his management team realized that this option will not be renewed. From a legal perspective “VP Records for more than two years has failed to render the payment option and operated with malicious intent in its refusal to comply with its contractual obligation.”

As Gyptian embraces the beginning of a new musical chapter in his life, he’s eager to get in the studio and make music under his own label, Ryte Dyrekshan Records. “It’s time I get back to doing what I love which is making music, and time for my fans to hear from me again so I can get out the road and see them. They’ve been asking and begging for new music – time to make that happen.”
