It’s not an easy road, but once we have life, we have the opportunity to live, dream and hope. On his earthstrong, we salute the reggae icon, Grammy winning artist, Buju Banton and the amazing music he blessed the world with so far. As Gargamel marks his 42nd birthday behind bars—having instructed his defense team to cease all appeals, and looking forward to his release in 2019—we remember the words he told Boomshots many years ago: Buju: “Well nothing last forever and one thing I hope and pray… that is that all man and all true works must receive their justice. We are not just pawns here to make you dance and gyrate. We are here to uplift, educate you, and to stimulate you in all ways and every way. Yes?”  More After The Jump…

“Our life and our destinies are sometimes predestined and no matter where this journey takes me, remember I fought the good fight. It was a great man that said my head is bloody, but still I am bowed. I love you all, thank you for your support and continue loving God”
—Buju Banton (Mark Myrie), statement delivered by his lawyer, David Markus

Strange, this feeling I’m feeling, But Jah love we will always believe in

Though you may think my faith is in vain

Til Shiloh we’ll chant Rastafari’s name
