Reggae star Buju Banton faces drug trial in Fla.

MIAMI – On his upcoming album "Before the Dawn," Jamaican reggae star Buju Banton crows about standing strong, though battered and bruised, in the face of a gathering darkness.

The songs sound prophetic — the four-time Grammy nominee recorded them before he was arrested on federal cocaine charges last December.
A U.S. government informant testfied today that the Jamaican reggae star Buju Banton introduced him to a friend who the musician said had contacts to sell kilograms of cocaine.

Recordings of phone calls and other conversations between Banton and the informant, Alexander Johnson, were also played in Court Today.

Johnson testified that Banton introduced him to Ian Thomas. Thomas pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine. He faces up to life in prison.
