Buju_Banton_Tour_Gays_Reggae_Dancehall_Beenie_man_Elephant_man_Driva.jpgWord is that Buju Banton's vocals were removed from the 'Traffic Jam' hit with Stephen and 'Junior Gong' Marley. The video was shot in Florida earlier this week, but Buju was not in attendance at the shoot. Instead, Spragga Benz 'pinch-hit' in Buju's role. Curious as ever, YardFlex.com made an enquiry of Tracii McGregor of Gargamel Music who sent us an email saying that "...in a nutshell, we simply failed to find common ground with the Marleys on the contract they sent over. Their deadline to turn in the album was looming so I imagine they chose to remove Buju's parts from the song to protect themselves legally."

"We feel no way. It's the business of music," the email concluded.

Anyway, Buju well alright because Driva gone. It mad ah foreign and yard.
