The saga continues for the ageless Champion.


Within months of retaking what was rightfully his at the National Stadium in March, Buju Banton is really back in his wheelhouse, publishing new material. "Country For Sale" serves many functions outside of his regular job parameters. The song is in essence, an opportunity for the Dancehall legend to answer the personal convictions imparted on him during a lengthy bid in Jamaican penal system.

Check the records: it's taken Buju Banton nearly half a year to get his footing. The 45-year old reggae/dancehall artist was sentenced to 8 years for drug trafficking, without recourse. Within that period, the rare Buju bootleg would manifest itself, prolonging the anticipation for a good comeback narrative in the coming months or years.

Ironically, Buju's successor in terms of popularity (Vybz Kartel) was also incarcerated, several years later. With two of their idols behind bars, Jamaicans certainly they were robbed of many good years of service. In truth, Buju Banton's incarceration was in some way fortuitous characters, filling the void made by his absence. Now that he's been returned to the Jamaican public, and Vybz is seemingly finding a way to publish material despite the circumstances of his life imprisonment, the Dancehall scene might just be entering a brand new era of prosperity.

Quotable Lyrics:

Country for sale apply within
Now Cobell tell me what a gwan
I hear them sell off everything
Name your price if the bargain is right
Oh yeah with the right connections
You can have anything that you like
Alright then you can have anything
