Ninjaman Remanded in Custody

Desmond ‘Ninjaman’ Ballentine, was yesterday remanded in custody when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court to answer to charges of murder, conspiracy to murder and illegal possession of a firearm.

After being sought by police in connection with the murder of Ricardo ‘Ricky Trooper’ Johnson at his Marl Road residence last week Monday. Ninjaman turned himself in to the police last week Wednesday.

According to police report, Ninjaman was among three men who drove up in a grey vehicle and shot Johnson as he swept his yard. When police declared him as a person of interest in the murder, the deejay embarked on a media campaign and declared his innocence saying he had retired from a life of crime.

Ninjaman has been in custody ever since and will return to court on April 7.

Efforts are being made by the police force to nab the other two men who are suspected of chasing and shooting Johnson to death.

CTV Montreal Interview – Jan 17, 2009


“Brand New Style” is Empire ISIS’ break out album that reflects the life and places Empire ISIS has been as well as the cultures that have inspired her. From Jamaica to Latin America, Casablanca to New York City, if you listen closely you will hear the Dancehall influence and Reggae vibes, the pounding New York style bass lines and Empire ISIS brand of World Pop. This Boss Lady attitude coursing through her veins connected to you through these stories, digested from her time running the streets from Buenos Aires to Bogota, Kingston to London. Some may find it strange or hard to understand, but for Empire ISIS “Brand New Style” is the code she lives by. Vision, Power and Dedication are the tools and foundation that charge her engine. Empire ISIS has grown to a Four Star General of International Gangstress music. Meaning that any barrier, wall or obstacle you encounter is welcomed as a chance to prove you are a warrior ready to defend your program.
