Buju Banton Set Up The Mic
Incarcerated reggae artiste Buju Banton has graces his fans with a new single call "Set Up The Mic" on the Rapid Fire riddim.
The single was released on Wednesday December 7, 2011. It was hailed as the debut single from the New Certifed Boomshots VOL. 1 compilation, produced by Boomshots Magazine.
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, a studio engineer, fixing levels at the beginning of a studio session, 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 would appreciate.
The dancehall/reggae mixtape also features artiste such as Shaggy, Beenie Man, Vybz Kartel and many others.
