UPDATE 5/15/17 6:45PM:  A short while after Red Carpet Shelley reported this news, we received communication from VP Records denying reports that Gyptian had left the label and that he is still a part of the VP Records family:

Reports that reggae artist Gyptian is no longer signed to VP Records are false. On the contrary, VP Records can confirm that Gyptian remains an exclusive VP recording artist. VP Records aims to establish and maintain strong working relationships with all of our artists and endeavors to release the best possible product.
The label holds Gyptian in high regard and looks forward to releasing his next project. ~VP Records
hmmmm, I guess this story is developing and we will keep you up-to-date!


(original story 5/15/17 3:27PM) Jamaican reggae superstar Gyptian announces his departure from VP Records effective immediately due to the expiration of his contract which was not renewed by VP Records.

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 anthem, has reached the decision to move on from his lengthy career 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”, says Gyptian.

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, that 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 in the road and see them.  They’ve been asking and begging for new music, time to make that happen. ~Gyptian

Red Carpet Shelley wishes Gyptian and his team all the best with the new label!
