Buju Moving… To Low Security Federal Facility In Miami

Buju Moving...

The family and close friends of Buju Banton can breathe a collective sigh of relief. After spending two months living under horrible conditions at Limestone County Correctional Institution, a private prison in Groesbeck, Texas, the Jamaican music icon is now on the move and expected to be transferred to Federal Correctional Institution Miami, the low security  facility originally recommended by the Honorable Judge James Moody, who oversaw his criminal case.

The Gargamel Music family expresses great thanks to the Jamaican consulate, who immediately sent a representative to report first hand on the conditions in Texas, and to Judge Moody, who wrote a letter to the Bureau Of Prisons (BOP) on Buju’s behalf. We are especially thankful for Buju’s attorney, David Oscar Markus of Markus & Markus Law, who worked diligently with the prison in Texas, the Jamaican consulate, the BOP and the Court to make this unprecedented move happen.

  1. What is the address to were buju is incarserated. His lyrics gave me hope. Ive grown up in detroit and have seen many dark days. I found away to turn my back on the darkside of my city and bujus music was my cornerstone. Please send me the info as I would like to write him a letter. Dont forget the inmate # I hope to reach him in a way that he helped me unknowingly.

    May God continue to guide you and to lift you up spiritually, Don’t be discouraged,be strong and ask God to watch over you. Just listened to your songs and was blessed tremendously especially the song “Sweet hour of prayer”. Stay blessed Buju, focus and used your time to write some inspiring lyrics. One love…
