Ninjaman is back in the Supreme Court in Kingston today for his sentencing hearing.

The dancehall legend, whose real name is Desmond Ballentine, was found guilty of murder unanimously by a seven-member jury on November 20th. Two more men, his son Janiel and close friend Dennis Clayton, were all found guilty of the same crime. According to authorities, Ninjaman shot and killed Ricardo Johnson in March of 2009 during a domestic dispute over kitchen space at a house on Marl Road, Kingston 13.

Ninjaman represents the latest dancehall artists to be sent to prison for a serious crime. Vybz Kartel was sentenced to life in 2014 for a murder conviction, while Buju Banton is serving ten tears in a U.S. prison for drug trafficking. Dancehall deejay Munga Honorable is currently awaiting trial also for a murder case. Some dancehall fans thinks that there is a conspiracy against local entertainers where authorities are using them to send a message amidst growing concerns about crime.

Ninjaman, 50, has maintained his innocence and hinted last month that he will be appealing the conviction. He will likely be sentenced to life in prison with hard labor and will likely serve his sentence at the same prison where Vybz Kartel is housed, GP.

G-Eazy double album The Beautiful & Damned is now available.

The robust album packs 20 singles with guest appearances from E-40, Jay Ant, Kehlani, A$AP Rocky, Cardi B, Charlie Puth, and more. G-Eazy announced the album back in June and after six months of quietly working on the project he finally delivered it to his fans. Puth is featured on the single “Sober,” Cardi B and Rocky came through on “No Limit,” while Kehlani is on “Crash & Burn.” Among the producers who put in some work on the project includes Murda-Beatz, Boi-1da, Allen Ritter, The Futuristiks, and J Gramm.

“This is the next chapter of Gerald,” G-Eazy told Billboard. “I think [the fans] know me well enough by now, so this is just the next chapter of my life. I’m further exploring my Gemini; you know, the duality and the split personality of who I am. That’s The Beautiful and Damned. There’s multiple layers to the title and the concept of the album, but that’s one of the better messages. I’m exploring that yin and yang of my personality.”

Seven of the songs on The Beautiful & Damned were released ahead of the album. You can listen to the entire project below on Apple Music.

[Verse 1]
O Holy Night
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth
Long lay the world in sin and ever pining
Til He appeared and the spirit felt its worth
A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn

[Chorus]
Fall on your knees
O hear the angel voices
O night divine
O the night when Christ was born
O Holy Night
The stars are brightly shining

[Verse 2]
Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains He shall break for the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease
O the world, the star is sweetly gleaming
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we

[Chorus]
Fall on your knees
O hear the angel voices
O night divine
O the night when Christ was born
O night divine

[Outro]
O the night when Christ was born
When Christ was born
When Christ was born

[Verse 1]
Before I spoke a word, You were singing over me
You have been so, so good to me
Before I took a breath, You breathed Your life in me
You have been so, so kind to me

[Chorus]
O, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
O, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it, and I don’t deserve it, still, You give Yourself away
O, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God, yeah

[Verse 2]
When I was Your foe, still Your love fought for me
You have been so, so good to me
When I felt no worth, You paid it all for me
You have been so, so kind to me

[Chorus]
O, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
O, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it, and I don’t deserve it, still, You give Yourself away
O, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God, yeah

[Bridge]
There’s no shadow You won’t light up
Mountain You won’t climb up
Coming after me
There’s no wall You won’t kick down
Lie You won’t tear down
Coming after me
There’s no shadow You won’t light up
Mountain You won’t climb up
Coming after me
There’s no wall You won’t kick down
Lie You won’t tear down
Coming after me
There’s no shadow You won’t light up
Mountain You won’t climb up
Coming after me
There’s no wall You won’t kick down
Lie You won’t tear down
Coming after me
There’s no shadow You won’t light up
Mountain You won’t climb up
Coming after me

O, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine
And I couldn’t earn it, I don’t deserve it, still, You give Yourself away
O, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God, yeah
