Grammy Nominated Reggae Artist Buju Banton Gets 10 Years Behind Bars!

buju banton gets 10 years in prison

Way back in December '09, Grammy nominated Reggae singer Buju Banton was arrested in Miami and charged with conspiracy to possess over 11 pounds of cocaine with the intent to deliver!

Given the fact that he's called for the attack of gays in his music, we were ESPECIALLY unsympathetic when we heard that.

Now, a year and half later, a federal judge has sentenced Banton to 10 years in prison, which is the lowest sentence legally allowed for his charges.

To be perfectly honest, we would have been fine with it if he had been given a more harsh sentence. We think his actions were beyond reprehensible, and his anti-gay lyrics have disgusted us over the years.

See you in 10 years, Buju! Let's hope you've changed your hateful ways by then.

Dance Hall music used to be fun but this scum and others like Shabba Ranks, Vybz Cartel, Elephant (monkey) Man and Beenie Man made that music a piece of shit well now Buju is going to be a prison bitch! By the way he is Sean Kingston uncle!!

    what a sad and pathetic man. thankfully he's being sent to prison for a drug charge and not a murderous hate crime.

    1) You know normally read the stories on here and never comment but this really irked the shit out of me. Now… granted I do not condone the anti-gay mentality. But to sit here and say that a man deserves a harsher sentence, (more years of his life taken away from him in a brick box) is complete and utter bullshit. I lived in Jamaica years ago and that is the mentality of the country, they don't like homosexuality. Plain and simple. Not everyone is as open as individuals or as a culture to gay life. You don't have to like his stance, that's your choice — but that's YOUR opinion.

    Re: AttFinch – You really can't call someone you don't know pathetic. His actions were stupid yes. But you don't know the man… and you don't know what he's like behind closed doors much less in person. So don't be so quick to cast judgement.



  12. 12

    Shame! It couldn't have happened to a more deserving person.

    ok I never comment on this site, but I now have to since Buju is one of my favourite artists. Perez I like you but your comments are totally ridiculous more years cause he dont like gays smfh he can sing what he choose to i actually like the song and still dont have a problem with gays.. y'all americans are crazy I am quite unhappy with Buju for choosing to live in a country that dont like him of course he was was going to get 10 years for conspirating to do something and not actually doing it your laws are so retarded. Well when he comes out in 5 he would write more music.. cant keep a good man down .. free Buju

    Re: Mad Dog – white people r the craziest and sadistic people ever take a look at the mass murderers and those who have commited the worst attrocities in history

    Re: Jaeda – His song "Boom Bye Bye" advocates pouring acid on LGBT people, "burning them up bad like an old tire wheel," and shooting them in the head with an AK-47. He also sings "Anytime Buju Banton come, f–gots get up and run … they have to die". Sounds pretty pathetic to me. And you know what else sounds pathetic to me, is you trying to defend this bigoted hateful piece of shit.



  18. 18

    10 YEARS IS PRETTY HARSH CONSIDERING THE ONLY REASON WHY THEY DID THIS IS BECAUSE OF HIS RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. I THOUGHT THIS WAS AMERICA FREEDOM OF SPEACH. ONLY NASTY PEOPLE LIKE YOU WOULD BASH HIM FOR SPEAKING WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS. BOOM BYE BYE YESSSS ADAM AND EVE NOT ADAM AND STEVE AND IF HE IS A MONKEY YOUR A CRACKER.



  19. 19

    BOOM BYE BYE INNA BATTY BOT HEAD!

    Re: BUrnoutbattybwoy – Yes he is monkey!!



  21. 21

    So if he said nice things about homosexuality then he would deserve a lighter sentence?



  22. 22

    PEGADO- YOU ONLY THINK HE IS A MONKEY BECAUSE OF THAT APE OF A MOTHER WHO RAISED YOU AND THAT CRACKER JACK FATHER WHO DISOWNED YOU SO YOU THINK ITS OK TO BE GAY. ALL OF YOU ARE GOING TO BURN IN THE FLAMES OF HELL WHEN YOU DIE. WALKING AROUND HERE WITH AN OPEN BATTY HOLE. NASTY NASTY NASTY



  23. 23

    YES AND DONT FORGET HE'S BALCK, A MINORITY, RICH AND PROMOTES FREEDOM OF SPEECH. NOW DO YOU SEE THE ARROW ON HIS BACK

    Re: AttFinch – I defend his right to freedom of speak. If you don't like that then that's your problem. I don't like the ignorant bullshit that you spew but I respect your right to say it. 'Nough said! :)

    Re: BUrnoutbattybwoy – Touche! Finally someone who gets the fact that he can sing about whatever the eff he wants whether we support it or not. What people FAIL to fucking understand is that he has good songs that don't spew hate. Not ALL his songs have homophobic lyrics. But people are so quick to pass judgement and point out the bad in people before they take a look at the good. Those people, (like that ignorant pig Attfinch, teehee!) make me sick.
