Donald Trump lists Jamaica as a 'Drug Haven', and Reggae Music Thrives as its Biggest Export

On August 8th, the Donald Trump administration listed Jamaica as a major drug producing nation. Even though this refers to the island's marijuana production, the island's reggae music continues to be its major export. Ever since the breakout of Bob Marley, the island has produced many great entertainers who continue to tour the world and make a very good income doing so.

The artists and musicians mostly eise from very humble and impoverished backgrounds as those who enter the drug trade but they choose a life of reggae music instead. Four notable reggae artists to mention from these inner city communities who enjoy a vast amount of success are Bounty Killer, Sizzla, Anthony B and Richie Stephens. All four artists are present on the hit reggae compilation cd Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica (Reloaded). The album debuted in August at #1 on the Amazon Best Seller reggae album chart and shot to #4 on the iTunes reggae album chart.

The album was released by the Contractor Music Group along with Amada Records& The DJ Grid USA. The album also includes Trinity Chris from the inner city streets of Toronto, Canada as well as new upcoming acts from the Jamaican streets such as Nature Ellis and Whitter the Legend.
