The news of Miles’ death was initially confirmed by the Jamaica Observer.

“Yes it is true,” Jahazeil Myrie, another son of Buju Banton’s, told the outlet. “It is not my thing to say, it is not my job personally to give out any personal information about Miles, my father is the one who should share any details, but Miles is an hortical yute, his soul was clean, so I had to say something.”

“We grow up together one ah the time dem, and he always would motivate me to never give up. He was a very motivational person no matter wah. When he was younger, he wanted to be a judge but as he got older, he got to love the rapping so he wanted to be a rapper.”

Banton has been a legendary figure in the dancehall scene since the early 1990s. He most recently collaborated with Lil Wayne and Shabba Ranks on the song “Hallelujah Heaven.”

The track, a fusion of gospel and dancehall, was produced by the multi-talented Jeymes Samuel and appeared on the soundtrack for his movie The Book of Clarence.

“Hallelujah, holy shit, I get high as Buddha/ Put you on a highway to heaven like I’m your Uber/ I maneuver through Miami like I was Tua/ Like I was Shuler, King of Diamonds like I’m a jeweler / Hallelujah, from Hollygrove to Honolulu/ Me, Shabba, Buju, the holy ghosts will probably spook you,” Weezy rapped in his opening verse.
