Now, in The Reasonings of Buju Banton, Bounty Killer & Sizzla, the 8th book in the series, you can get inside the minds of some of the most important artists who have made their mark on Reggae music for generations to come.
Buju Banton is one of these men. A certified natural talent, his career was hallmarked by his socio-political and overtly sexual lyrics. Then he turned his back and became a devout Rastafarian. Today, he is incarcerated.
Bounty Killer is acknowledged far and wide as The Warlord. His commanding delivery, attitude and streetwise outlaw music made him one of the biggest stars of his generation. He has likewise spoken candidly on the state of Reggae music and what was keeping it back from crossing over to the masses. Then he faced his most formidable opponent, ever.
Sizzla has released over 60 albums and is respected worldwide for his music. He has actively engaged a youthful following with his spiritual Rastafarian teachings and lifestyle, educating them on corruption, oppression and how to uplift themselves.
