Someone with both feet firmly planted and both hands gripped within that group would definitely be Mr. Mark Myrie, Buju Banton. When Buju's time is done and we look back on his career, he will DEFINITELY be regarded as one of the most noteworthy (and controversial, in both good and bad ways) figures that we've ever seen and he'll also likely go down as one of the most respected as well by both his contemporaries and fans, alike. I always remember a quote from Tony Rebel from maybe twenty years ago now where he said something to the effect of Buju Banton being the sun around which every other Reggae artist revolved! That is a HUGE compliment, particularly coming from someone as esteemed as Rebel and I would think it wasn't an opinion that he, alone, kept at the time. Throughout the years Buju has maintained a very interesting place in the music as someone whose work, inherently will receive international attention because he had built his name up so highly (through various ways) around the world and also on the local level as well. Though nowhere near as active on 'this riddim or that riddim' (and it's been a very long time since he has done that) as he once was, when Buju does release new music virtually everyone with an eye on Reggae music pays attention.
