Dancehall artist Busy Signal has lost his corn-rowed hair style he has worn for years.
The artist, whose real name is Glendale Gordon, was extradited last month to the US after he waived his right to challenge extradition proceedings.
He pleaded guilty to failing to appear in court to stand trial on drug charges 10 years ago.
The entertainer could face 12 to 18 months in prison and a fine of US$3,000 to US$30,000.
The dancehall star had been charged in February 2002 in relation to cocaine trafficking.
But he fled the US before his trial began and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
