Buju’s Son Is Learning Fast And Sharing The Lessons

Shortly before his appearance at the highly anticipated “Long Walk To Freedom” concert, Jahaziel Myrie shared some real talk on his Instagram. Posting a black square with big white letters, he sent a clear message: “Everyone please to come out DM.” The caption went into more detail, stating “I’ve seen my followers going up jus for the hypocrites,” and asking people to please “support me for my music.” It was only right for the young artist to focus himself before last night’s performance. Fresh off gracing the big stage at Jamaica’s National Stadium, Jahziel blesses the Boomshots massive with some fresh visuals for his new release “Leave Dem Alone,” a song that’s all about steering clear of fake friends and embracing #PositiveVibesOnly. It looks like Buju’s son is making his own way and learning important lessons too. As Jahaziel sings on the track, “Give them your all and them hurt you. Ah no every smile mean something good.” Video After The Jump… Read more »

Brand New Visuals Off The Master Blaster Album

Originally recorded for Sugar Minott’s Youth Promotion label, “Lots of Sign” was one of those extra-special tracks that made Tenor Saw a legend of Jamaican Music. The song’s timeless message, encouraging listeners to “face reality all the time,” inspired producer and engineer extraordinaire Colin “Bulby York” to update the tune on his recent Master Blaster project. “It was an honor get Chris and Beenie Man to rework this Tenor Saw classic,” says Bulby who blesses the Boomshots massive with today’s exclusive premiere. “Now the video will document the vibes for eternity.” Having worked with many of the legends of Jamaican music—as well as international acts like Chaka Khan, No Doubt, and Rihanna—Bulby chose Christopher Martin for the lead vocal. “When I was first contacted, it was awesome to receive that call,” says Martin, “and then it was incredible to find out that Beenie Man was included on it.” The Doctor offered a similar diagnosis of the process: “Working with Bulby is always magic—mi longtime friend,” says Beenie. “Is like Chris ah mi bredda. We just show up and boom! It done. One take. Laughs and vibes.” As for the video itself? Martin describes the shoot as “effortless,” adding that “the final product really tied everything together. Now I’m just looking forward to people watching it and loving it as much as I do.” Video After The Jump… Read more »

Buju Banton Lays “Boom Bye Bye” Controversy To Rest

Buju Banton Lays "Boom Bye Bye" Controversy To Rest

Gargamel Declares “Love and Hate can never Be friends,” Removes Decades-Old Song From Streaming Platforms

Even before Buju Banton’s return home to Jamaica, there were signs that the Grammy-winning reggae icon was determined to make a fresh start. Three weeks prior to his release, the artist shared a statement on his Instagram making clear his intention to leave all contreversy in the past. “In light of the adversity I have encountered, I feel the need to stress that my only desire going forward is peace and love,” Buju wrote. “I only want to be associated with my craft. Having survived, I want to share the good news and strength of my music. I just want to continue making music, which I’ve devoted my life to. I look forward to the opportunity to say a personal thanks to my fans and everyone who supported me.” Exactly what prompted this sentiment was left open to interpretation, but since that time Buju has quietly made moves to back up this talk with action. Without fanfare he pulled the song “Boom Bye Bye,” which has led to so much criticism over the years, including protests and canceled shows. The track—which he has not performed live since the mid 2000s—is no longer available on Spotify, Apple Music, or Tidal. And yesterday, Buju issued a statement to explain why he made this move.
