Whether or not you're still active on this forum - or care to carry on this discussion (from four years ago), I too think it's amazing that this thread got no responses. Buju was and still is a talented, amazing artist - and contributor to Reggae Music. It's very sad to see his present situation.

I have been listening to reggae for over 25 years so I have heard lots of reggae artists---I have to say I do not find Buju Banton impressive in the least.

Which is understandable tygerlilyzz - because that's your opinion. But some people consider Buju and his music to be the music of an era in reggae music. He had a lot of club movers - especially when he sang with other big name artists like Beres Hammond and Wayne Wonder; just to name a few. Then his life took on a spiritual turn - and his music transcended once again reaching people who shared his faith; as he also helped many others to convert to that faith as well!

Absolutely! A great track still in his early years is called "Wanna Be Loved". That was released around '95. "Bonafide Love" was another great track featuring Wayne Wonder. I think that was on the 93 album; "Mr. Mention"; which also had another powerful ladies song on it called "Who Say" featuring Beres Hammond. All tracks possessed a certain social and emotional awareness that resonated with guys - and ladies just LOVED! The beats also complimented his lyrics well. Buju has an extensive catalog; those are just a few.

Gave some of his songs a listen. Overall, I think he's probably a little too R&B for me, personally.

Understood. What type of reggae do you mostly enjoy?

Marley was obviously my introduction and so far he's my favorite artist (possibly from lack of exposure).

Unfortunately, I don't know the names since I used to stream Pandora at work. I remember at one point realizing that 90% of Sublime songs were covers and I tended to like the originals from old school reggae artists as I came across them on Pandora.

So I guess the old school stuff, really.
