’Til Shiloh is the fourth album by Jamaican dancehall artist Buju Banton, released in 1995 on Loose Cannon Records, a short-lived subsidiary of Island Records (see 1995 in music).[1] His international breakthrough, ’Til Shiloh marked a turn towards a more serious path. Many of the songs on this album explore Buju's then newfound faith in the Rastafari movement, with songs such as "Til I'm Laid to Rest", and "Untold Stories". This could be seen as a transition from the rude-bwoy style to a more roots-oriented fashion, although the seventh track is based on the hardcore "Arab Attack" riddim.

The title track, which opened the album, was based on an introduction Banton had used in live shows. According to producer Donovan Germain, "'Til Shiloh mean forever."[1]

In 2002 the album an expanded and remastered edition was released on Island/IDJMG/Universal Records, featuring the tracks "Sensemilia Persecution" and "Rampage."

The album was listed in the 1999 book The Rough Guide: Reggae: 100 Essential CDs.[2]

In 2020, the album was reissued on its 25th Anniversary on December 18, including remixes of "Not An Easy Road", "Wanna Be Loved" and a unreleased track called "Come Inna The Dance" as bonus tracks.[3]
