Yes this is the defense for Buju Banton
It’s laughable at best against a Conspiracy Charge in Federal Court. Let us just examine this lightly as that’s all it’s going to get in court.

1. collusion, sedition. 2. Conspiracy, plot, intrigue, cabal all refer to surreptitious or covert schemes to accomplish some end, most often an evil one. A conspiracy usually involves a group entering into a secret agreement to achieve some illicit or harmful objective: a vicious conspiracy to control prices. A plot is a carefully planned secret scheme, usually by a small number of persons, to secure sinister ends: a plot to seize control of a company. An intrigue usually involves duplicity and deceit aimed at achieving either personal advantage or criminal or treasonous objectives: the petty intrigues of civil servants. Cabal refers either to a plan by a small group of highly-placed persons to overthrow or control a government, or to the group of persons themselves: a cabal of powerful lawmakers.
Uh Thought So, this is what they are accusing him of – The Law Form of Violation; which involves an agreement by two or more persons to commit a crime, fraud, or other wrongful act. in this case it’s got something to do with Cocaine.
Why else would they need a Columbian to do the job ?
Buju You Need to Start LISTENING TO PEOPLE, When They Say BE CAREFUL. Because we have it on Good Authority that enough people personally warned You about certain people who you are known to associate with; and are now standing trial with. There is no reason for a Big Time Reggae Star whos’ whole platform has been “No Cocaine” to be caught up in a Drug Bust – ON TAPE.
Just So You Know – It’s Dillinger “Cocaine In My Brain”
This is the Buju Banton we remember, but now when we watch this video we wonder what’s in the bag since he tells the man don’t stop at all. Hmmmm Buju did you make this video to serendipitously tell us what really agwan?
Buju says to Driver A as he hands him a briefcase:
I wan yuh go carry this down the road fi me; and don’t tek no time from nobody just do what me tell yuh fi do seen star, and mek sure everything work according to how man seh everything fi wuk seen. tek back yuhself anda bring bak yuhself inna one piece. mek sure seh yuh reach Hear Me. Lawd Have Mercy, Lawd Have His Mercy.
Driver Don’t Stop At All. Drop this Arizona down a alba mall. Driver don’t even eat, collect that likkle food there and come back quick. Driver Just Remember the Damn Speed Limit, cause if yuh run into feds my friend that is it. I got a nextel phone and a cellular chip, any problem you can reach mi pon dis.
A Pounds dem a buy, when a tons man a ship; Green like grass, Brown like chocolate. Fed Ex and UPS a mek several trip. All mi life savings a ride pon dis. you can drink a beer, but don’t you dare bun a spliff. the scent of the marijuana mek ya light uplift. even though it compress and tie up inna plastic. don’t deliver it, a gon end up drastic. a barrel gun mi bus, and yute yuh know it cyaan stick.
The Lyrics them-self are a plan if you understand what he’s saying. and these days the courts have plenty of people who speak and interpret patois; so this is no secret.
Buju You Made a Boo Boo.. You made a video before you went to jail talking about what they are charging you with. This video alone is prima facia evidence enough to put him away for Conspiracy. His lawyer may be expensive; but can he make the charges go away ? only time will tell as we await the latest round of court tactics coming up in this headline making case.
Buju – Maybe you need to go back to singing Till Shiloh Bredren,
