Remember back in November of 2011 we told you that more high profile reggae artists were under investigation. Well, the time is now and Dancehall artist Busy Signal (one of my favorite dancehall lyrisct) has been arrested via the Jamaican Gleaner. All I gotta say is the hardest gangsta can become a RAT!

Law enforcement agents have arrested another high profile figure from the West Kingston community, on an extradition warrant.

Popular dancehall artiste, Busy Signal, whose real name in Reanno Glendale Gordon, was picked up at the Norman Manley International Airport, immediately after he stepped off a flight from the United Kingdom this afternoon.

The Gleaner/Power 106 News understands that the entertainer was returning from a tour in Amsterdam.

His arrest came months after The Gleaner broke the story that a prominent entertainer was under the radar of the United States to be extradited.

‘Busy’ is said to be linked to the operations of extradited West Kingston crimelord Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke. Coke is now awaiting sentencing in the United States on racketeering charges.

His sentencing hearing is to begin tomorrow.

According one of the law enforcement officers who spoke with The Gleaner, ‘Busy’ has been under investigation since 2002.
