    I was the makeup artist on shottas, and I can tell you that I got to know this young man, and he was truly a most gentle and loving person.
    I really enjoyed working with him….everyone did!
    He had a keen sense about acting and he was so proud to be working so closely with his father, Spragga Benz.
    I know that he had a bright future, and I am deeply saddened to hear of this news. My heart goes out to Spragga and his family, friends, and the entire community, which is reeling in sorrow from this.
    G-D rest his soul.

    This is very sad that Carlton Grant Jr. lost his life under such circumstances. I thought the Jamaican police would try to spare a life rather than take one. I lost my brother in St Andrew little less than a year ago who was executed by gunmen. Even, when the police was given leads to investigate and bring the criminals responsible to justice, they did nothing. But they find the time to harass and kill a teenager who had a promising future. It would be more human if the police actively pursue dangerous criminals who poses continuous the Jamaican society rather than committing unexplained killings.

    Selassie I know star! It hurt mi heart when i read about the unfortunate event that took this young mans life, Spragga the Benz just gwaan hold firm and don’t lose faith inna the King because young Carlton is in better place maybe he was too good for this earth, so Jah needed him beside him. But the police men involved in this incident need to be brought to justice they are like animals, and i hope they are punished to the fullest extent of the law(if such a thing still exist in our country). R.I.P Carlton Grant JNR. Keep giving us the good music Carlton Grant SNR. love and good Rastafari.

    Yo, i personally knew Calton, good yout, never doing wrong. Man it sad seh the police had to kill him for no reason. His funeral was Saturday and man ohh man was it a somber day when my friends and i went to pay our last respects. I hope the police who were involved pay for this to the fullest.

    these lyrics go out to carlton kymani grant i was thinking of you on christmas day and i realized how much god loved you,he knew this suffering and pain you endured while living in his messed world,god never wanted to take you,but he does allow things to happen in our lives, he is trying to get somebody’s attention.spragga paid attention! carlton i have a son he is a little older than you,everytime i look him i will remember to thank god for his blessings. i was thinking about traveling to jamican,but i will pass because i do not want to be killed,or robbed. jamicans,blacks in america ,blacks people everywhere,where did we go wrong? greed,jealous,money,sex are killng our people.what happen to love one another? these killings are not just happening in jamican they are happening everywhere,our government is just as bad. i voted for obama,for a better world,this slave’s master laws must end. this dirty south!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! diamond
