Buju Banton's family members have rubbished claims that the reggae artiste could be released from prison as early as this weekend due to an effort to ease overcrowding in penal institutions across the United States.  


"Nothing like that, we don't know anything about it, those media reports are false," Marcus Myrie, well known producer and Buju Banton's son, said. 

According to a news report from BET, the Grammy-winning reggae singer could be among 6,000 prisoners to be released during November as part of a reform from the US Sentencing Commission.


In its report, BET directly named the entertainer as one of the many prisoners who could be released.


Banton's release date is set for February 2019, but if his name makes the list of 6,000 he could be released sometime in November after only serving half of his sentence.
