Roc Nation just added a second reggae legend to its roster of musicians which cuts across all genres, from rap to country music. The company specialized in artist management, music publishing, touring, production, strategic brand development, etc. Buju Banton, following in the steps of Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, inked a deal with the JAY-Z led entertainment company.
Banton came home from prison recently after being sentenced to a 10-year prison term in the FEDZ for his conviction for conspiracy to possess and distribute cocaine (in addition to a lesser charge). The reggae legend was set-up by an informant (aka snitch) who was working for the DEA. Banton’s sentence was eventually reduced. Federal prosecutors would eventually agree to drop a firearms charge and a juror was also found guilty of misconduct. Banton was released from prison on 12/7/2018.
On Friday (11/22), his deal with Roc Nation became official and dropped his first reggae track, Steppa. Catch that video below.
