Supreme has just officially unveiled teasers for its upcoming collaboration with Jamaican dancehall and reggae great Buju Banton. Banton became a fixture in the music industry during the early ’90s with the release of two critically-acclaimed albums,
Stamina Daddy and Mr. Mention. In fact, in 1992, the Kingston-born artist also broke Bob Marley’s record for the greatest number of #1 singles in a year in Jamaica.
The 2000s saw even more success for Banton musically as he nabbed a Grammy for his album Before the Dawn in 2011 — his earlier works Rasta Got Soul in 2010 and Friends for Life in 2004 also received Grammy nomination nods. The reggae star also had some run-ins with authorities as he was arrested and charged in 2009 for conspiracy to distribute and possession of cocaine. He was convicted in 2011 and sentenced to 10 years in a federal prison — he has now been released since early December of 2018. Some of Banton’s most notable songs include “Murderer,” “Destiny,” “Champion,” and “Driver A” to name a few.
As for the Supreme collab, there’s no official word on a release date but the recent photo hints that this could be an artist photo tee as seen in previous versions with other musicians who’ve fronted Supreme drops. Stay-tuned as we get more official product imagery and actual release date.
