In September 21, Busy Signal, born Glendale Gordon, was fined $30,000 and sentenced to six months in prison by Minnesota State District Court Judge Donovan W. Frank for absconding bail related to drug trafficking charges brought against him 10 years ago. At the time of his sentencing back in September, Gordon had already served four months — a month in Kingston’s General Penitentiary and three months in Minnesota’s Sherbourne County Jail and judge Donovan W. Frank counted that as time served.
His latest album -Reggae Music Again- was also just shortlisted for the nomination in the category Best Reggae Album for the upcoming Grammy Awards 2013 together with Vybz Kartel’s album Pon Di Gaza Mi Sey, Konshens’s Mental Maintance, Sean Paul’s latest album and Mr Vegas album.
