This will be his second album under The Wash House Music Group and will include features from international reggae artists: Gappy Ranks, George “Fiji” Veikoso, and a powerful young New Zealand Artist by the name of Aaradhna. Also featured on the album are Jamaican Reggae Legends Chaka Demus, and two Grammy Award winning Artists Gramps Morgan, and Buju Banton himself. Up & coming artists Lion Fiyah & Tenelle also appear on the album.
This album has come just three days after J Boog & his Hawaii based band “The Hot Rain Band” showcased a brilliant performance on the third annual Welcome To JamRock Reggae Cruise. A performance that left the reggae cruise predominantly made up of Jamaican and Caribbean passengers wide eyed and in awe. J Boog & Hot Rain made history as they entered as the first Polynesian Artists to be invited on the line-up. Critics & artists have all concurred that they may have very well had one of the best performances on the cruise this year. To celebrate the release of his album the Compton Native alongside his band joined Reggae sensation Christopher Martin and performed for the first time ever in Jamaica.

He is set to travel to the island of Saipan and Guam where he will be performing alongside fellow Hawaiian Musicians Mike Love, Anuhea, and The Jimmy Weeks Project.
