Buju Banton was released from prison today

Buju Banton, born Mark Myrle, faces life in prison on cocaine charges, as previously reported.

This is an example of how broke music artists can be. Just because someone is on T.V or the radio doesn’t mean they are rich.

Buju Banton is a famous black musician who many would consider ‘rich’. Yet, he couldn’t even post his own bail.

Stephen Marley, another famous reggae artist, couldn’t post it either. He had to put his house up!

It’s different for rich folks.

If someone with real wealth get arrested on $300,000 bail; he’s out in an hour.

But what if he wasn’t that rich and couldn’t afford the bail?

He could make a phone call to one of his rich friends to post the bail.

The rich friend wouldn’t even have to post bail because he could just call the judge. Or he could call someone who knows the judge and ask for a favor.

That’s real money. That’s old money.

Don’t believe the hypocrisy of the music artists who say they ‘ballin’.

It’s all hype and no fact.

All these rappers can't be ballin
