  • Beres Hammond Ready To Perform With Buju Banton

    Beres Hammond and Buju Banton on the same stage would be one for the ages.

    Buju Banton is a few months away from being released from prison and several local promoters are already gearing up for his return to the musical scene. One thing is for sure, his first concert will be a grand affair. Reggae legend Beres Hammond has already indicated that he wants to share the stage with the Gargamel and he doesn’t care where the show will be.

    Beres and Buju have collaborated on a number of singles over the years including “Pull It Up” and “Who Sey (Big Man Don’t Cry).” The two singers have remained closed friends outside of working together musically. Buju Banton, whose real name is Mark Myrie, is currently in the final year of his 10-year prison sentence in Florida for drug trafficking. He is slated for release in December of this year.

    The last time Buju performed at a concert was in 2011 at a show in Miami during his high profile drug trial. The Grammy-winning reggae singer was convicted on three counts of drug trafficking charges in 2011 and sent to federal prison for 10 years. He appealed the conviction several times over the years but lost on all of his attempts. Since his incarceration, Buju has not released any new music and sources say he has been writing behind bars so you can expect some new music later this year or early next year.


  • Listen Popcaan New Song “Rich & Bad” Prod. By Markus

    Popcaan has a clear message for his enemies and that is he is “Rich & Bad.”

    The Unruly Boss teamed up with producer Markus Myrie, Buju Banton son, for the new dancehall banger. “Pu**y dem diss man a die out / Can’t diss one and fly out / New submachine man try out / Rich and bad, yeah,” Popcaan deejay over a drum heavy beat. “The Killy dem make a murder step / Assault rifle a beat, so a murder make / And anuh no likkle girl a step / Hundred buss dem head with the Intratec.”

    This marks the second single released by Popcaan this month. He also drop the visuals for his gangsta anthem “El Chapo” earlier this month, sending a signal that he is ready for war. Since last year he has been beefing with Mavado and Alkaline and this new track “Rich & Bad” would make for a clever diss record although he didn’t released it as a diss.

  • Chronixx Calls For Buju Banton Concert Promoted By Government


    If Chronixx has his way then the government would promote a massive concert for Buju Banton when he is released next year.

    The young reggae act made a surprised performance at Dubwise in St. Andrew last weekend where he calls for the Jamaican government to support reggae music, as well as, to host a massive concert for Buju Banton. “It is the number one export in this country,” Chronixx said about reggae/dancehall music.

    “It’s the only thing that we export all year round. The city of London invite me the city of Kingston neva invite me to do a show yet, enuh,” the singer added. “They don’t think it’s worth it to say we are going to put in our budget $20 million for Buju Banton and Sizzla to perform.”

    Buju Banton is a legend in reggae and dancehall music after starting out his career doing hardcore dancehall and later transitioned into Jamaica’s more conscious musical art form. The Grammy-winning reggae singer is currently serving a 10 year prison sentence for drug trafficking and will be released from prison at the end of next year. Buju was convicted in 2011 for three counts of drug trafficking and filed numerous appeals which he lost.

    Do you think that the Jamaican government should fund a Buju Banton benefit concert when he is released?
