Honestly, the Buju Banton situation is unfortunate but when are these artists gonna learn to stay clear of illegal activity? If you’re an artist, especially rap or reggae, best believe eyes are on you so why not just stay clean? I’m tired of hearing rappers getting time for firearms, possession and other illegal activity especially since they mention it in their music. It’s just plain stupid. Although Buju’s lyrics have matured and taken a different direction over the years, he still was responsible for justifying the burning and stoning of gay people okay. Because reggae music, specifically dancehall, is so violent, sexist and just plain destructive, me a Jamaican, have stopped listening. It has become a genre of destruction So even though the sentence is highly excessive, he can still make an impact while locked up. Maybe he should write a book. The lesson we can all learn from this is that karma has no expiration date.
