Sean Paul has been a close friend of Buju Banton for years and has visited him in prison more than once since his incarceration in 2011. The Grammy-winning reggae star was sentenced to 10 years for a drug trafficking conviction in South Florida. He appealed the conviction several times over the past years but lost each on of them until he eventually gave up and opted to serve out his sentence.
