Despite the fact that embattled Grammy-Award winning dancehall superstart Buju Banton is prohibited from recording music while incarcerated, Buju released ‘Set Up the Mic’, this week. The single is the debut single from the new Certified Boomshots: Vol. 1 compilation. The song is available now on iTunes: ‘Set Up the Mic’
“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 songs producer, Mr. G praised Bujus ability to turn an impromptu freestyle into another hit song that fans yearning to hear his voice will appreciate.
The Dancehall/Reggae mixtape features many of Dancehalls top acts including Shaggy, Beenie Man, Vybz Kartel and several others.
Certified Boomshots: Vol. 1 will be unveiled on December 13.
