Though incarcerated and prohibited from recording singles in a Miami federal prison, Dancehall/Reggae superstar, Buju Banton’s Set Up the Mic, premiered yesterday.
The single is the debut single from the new Certified Boomshots: Vol. 1 compilation.
The Dancehall/Reggae mixtape features many of Dancehall’s top acts including Shaggy, Beenie Man, Vybz Kartel and several others.
Set Up the Mic was initially recorded in 2008 by Buju for Young Blood Records on the Rapid Burst Riddim.
Intended as a just-for-fun freestyle while a studio engineer fixed levels at the beginning of a studio session and pressed “record” by accident while the Grammy-winning singjay was voicing.
In a press release issued via the Boomshots Magazine website, the song’s producer, Mr. G praised Buju’s ability to turn an impromptu freestyle into another hit song that fans yearning to hear his voice will appreciate.
Certified Boomshots: Vol. 1 will be unveiled on December 13.
The song is currently available on iTunes. –> http://bit.ly/rBQqSm
