    The Associated Press reports that a Florida jury has found Grammy-winning reggae singer Buju Banton guilty on cocaine conspiracy charges. The 37-year-old Banton, whose birth/legal name is Mark Myrie, was on trial due to accusations that he conspired with two other men in setting up a drug deal in December of 2009. To add insult to injury, Banton's Before the Dawn won the Grammy last week for best reggae album. Shame that his professional life is doing better than his personal life at this point.

    This verdict comes at his second trial -- a jury deadlocked on the case at his first trial regarding this matter last year.
