He revealed his visit and subsequent conversation on Instagram.

Sean Paul shared that Buju's message to his dans is simply this: "Expect greatness, again".

He also added that the singer, born Mark Myrie, is in good spirits, still very focused and is not broken.


Myrie reportedly spends his time keeping fit, staying healthy and has been teaching classes to fellow inmates at the facility.

He was arrested in December 2009, found guilty in February 2011 and was initially scheduled to walk a free man from the McRae Correctional Facility in February 2019.

His 10-year prison sentence was reduced by two months in January of 2016 after the entertainer agreed to waive all future appeals of his 2011 conviction on cocaine distribution and conspiracy charges.

In return, prosecutors agreed to drop a firearms charge against him.

According to the US Federal Bureau of Prison website, Myrie will be released on December 8, 2018.
