Jamaican Dancehall Artist Vybz Cartel, known for his raunchy lyrics and skin bleaching, has some pretty serious health concerns.

Media Take Out learned that, according to a report by Fox News, Kartel, real name Adidja Palmer, was diagnosed with Grave’s disease, and he is also living with two heart conditions.

The dancehall artists’ attorney Isat Buchanan confirmed the reports. Vybz cartel is currently in a Jamaican prison, where he is accused of multiple crimes, including homicide.

The attorney and son of Vybz Kartel claims that the artist is being housed in an inhumane lockdown for 23 hours per day in a cell that lacks proper ventilation. As a result, his health is deteriorating, his lawyer said.

On Wednesday, another Jamaican dancehall artist Spice – who stars in Love & Hip Hop – called out authorities for the condition in which the artist is being held. She also changed her display photo to a pic of Kartel.

“Prayers up for @vybzkartel STAY STRONG I LOVE YOU KING #FreeWorldBoss. How can you lock a man down for 23 hours every day in a poorly ventilated area knowing his health issues, just because you find a cell phone on his block? So wah happen a him alone have to pay the consequences for the entire block ? JAH JAH,” Spice said.

There are reports that the artist’s solitary confinement is a result of him allegedly smuggling cellular phones into prison. Prison officials have claimed in separate news articles that two cell phones were found days apart in Kartel’s cell.
