Buju Banton took the stand yesterday for his drug trial. Carribean360 is reporting that he claimed all of the cocaine talk was him just trying to “talk garbage” and impress the man who turned out to be an informant.
“I was talking garbage. I was just talking straight up garbage. He was trying out-talk me,” Buju testified.
“I’m just a humble musician. I was just talking above my head. I was trying to impress this guy and that’s what got me into this hot seat,” he said in another part of his testimony.
Buju also said that he was shocked when drugs were brought to a meeting at a warehouse with Johnson and former co-accused Ian Thomas in December – a meeting that was videotaped and showed Buju tasting the drugs. “I was in over my head,” Buju said.
