Grammy winning Jamaican reggae artiste, Buju Banton, who was convicted on cocaine trafficking charges in 2011, has filed a motion in court in an attempt to secure an earlier release date, according to a report in a Florida newspaper.


The Tampa Bay Tribune reports that Buju, whose given name is Mark Myrie, filed his own motion from prison asking to be released early based on a recent change in federal drug sentencing guidelines. Buju is currently serving a mandatory ten-year sentence for his conviction on a charge of conspiracy to distribute cocaine. He is scheduled to be released in 2019.
