Wayne Marshall Lands Performance on BET 106 & Park

Wayne Marshall Lands Performance on Bet 106 & Park and Will Release Video for New Single "Go Harder" With Waka Flocka, Ace Hood and Cham

After dropping his critically-acclaimed album Tru Colors and touring the globe alongside Stephen "Ragga" Marley this year, Wayne Marshall is poised to take his sound to the next plateau. 

On August 27, 2014, the Jamaican dancehall singer will make his national TV debut performance on BET 106 & Park for their special Caribbean Carnival takeover episode. 

That same week, he plans to drop his hip-hop flavored video (directed by Maybach Music's Jon J) for the album's latest single "Go Harder." 

The multi-talented singjay shot the video in sunny Miami with featured artists Waka Flocka, Ace Hood and Cham as well as Damian "Jr Gong" Marley, who produced most of Marshall's new album.  

Hailed by the Associated Press as "a refreshing curve to the dancehall game," Tru Colors is Marshall's first album in over a decade. The 13-track collection, released on the Marley-owned label Ghetto Youths International and distributed through Thirty Tigers/Sony RED, was written almost entirely by Marshall. Tessanne Chin, NBC’s The Voice winner, also contributes lyrics on the album’s closing track “On The End.” 

The album features an all-star cast of collaborations, including Ace Hood, Cham & Waka Flocka on "Go Harder," Aidonia, Assassin, I-Octane, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Bounty Killer & Vybz Kartel on “Go Hard,” Assassin on "Stupid Money," Bounty Killer on "Be On The Alert," "Tarrus Riley" on "Nah Give Up" and Capleton on "Strike Dem." The album follows his 2013 digital-only EP Tru Colors (Ghetto Youths International) and his 20 03 LP Marshall Law (VP Records).

Buju Banton gets new appeal hearing in Atlanta

Via reports

A lawyer for convicted Jamaican reggae star Buju Banton says a U.S. federal appellate court has agreed to hear his appeal. The Grammy-winning singer is serving a 10-year sentence for convictions on cocaine conspiracy and trafficking charges stemming from a 2009 arrest.

He was convicted in 2011 following a sting operation. In a Tuesday email, attorney Charles Ogletree says the full 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta will hold a hearing on the case.

The decision comes after a panel of that court in 2012 upheld Banton's convictions. His former defense lawyer had argued that a government informant improperly entrapped the singer. Ogletree says Banton is pleased with the court's decision. It's not clear when the hearing will take place.
