Who say big man doh cry?

Gargamel also known as Mark Anthony Myrie was released from United States prison and finally returned to Jamaica on December 7th.  The sounds of Gargamel filled my two speaker tape deck during my college years driving the University of Maryland Shuttle Bus at the University of Maryland College Park.  “Have mercy…hear wah happen”

 Mark was arrested in 2009 on drug-related charges and his first trial resulted in a hung jury.  He was convicted in 2011 after a second trial and refused to appeal and was sentenced.  “Ring the alarm another song is dying.”

Buju Banton’s lyrics can be very provocative and homophobic which is very off-putting.  His ‘Til Shiloh album though I still own is a classic that is worth a listen.   Now he’s in Jamaica “walking like ah champion”.
