Collie Buddz

If you’ve ever been to a reggae show or a house party with any sort of Caribbean leaning, odds are you’ve rocked to Collie Buddz’s 2007 monster hook: “Finally the herbs come around!” Since the release of his self-titled debut that year, the New Orleans-born, Bermuda-raised musician with a tendency toward dancehall and hip-hop has worked with the likes of Busta Rhymes, Beyoncé and Lil’ Flip—all the while attempting to avoid the shadow of the world’s Sean Pauls. Now touring on his third full-length, The Last Toke, Buddz may not have kept his grasp on the limelight, but he still has control over the convincing vocals and pop-dub-R&B crossover ability that put him there. With The New Kingston Band, Northwest Sons, DJ Redman. NICK FELDMAN
