SummarySince the early 1990s, the uncompromising lyrical insights, razor sharp rhyming skills and gritty yet beguilingly melodic deejay delivery of Buju Banton has dominated Jamaican music, transcending dancehall parameters to become a universally embraced prototype for the 21st century roots reggae movement. Fourteen years after 1995's exalted 'Til Shiloh, Buju Banton delivers the long-awaited opus Rasta Got Soul, his most musically audacious work to date. The album unites his characteristic vocals and consistently positive messages, grounded in the tenets of Rastafari, with organic roots reggae rhythms carefully crafted by a select aggregation of Kingston, Jamaica's finest musicians.
"Roots music is reggae's foundation," explains Buju, who became a dancehall superstar by riding the latest synthesized beats with an imposing ferocity that earned him legions of loyal fans and a peerless designation as the 'voice of Jamaica.' "To me the computer stuff gets monotonous; every third production you listen to you can hear some similarity in terms of the instruments that they use, as opposed to when you listen to something live there is always something different to catch you. I aim to bring back reggae's original sounds, original feeling and original consciousness through great poetry and pure live instruments."
