G7

There's always room in the Jamaican dancehall scene for a lyrically potent and socially current deejay. Garfield Reid, best known as G7 is ready to take dancehall music to another level. Having recorded numerous songs such as Gimme, Dem a Devil, and Love Yuh Right Now, and Nah Hold No Vibes. G7 is managed by T7G Music Production, and is enjoying strong social media interest and heavy rotation on Jamaican and overseas radio.
Originally from the inner-city community of Drewsland in Kingston and later Waterford in Portmore, G7 grew up at a time of tremendous political and social unrest. He saw firsthand the effects of social injustice and inequality. It wasn't all hard knocks for G7 as he was nurtured by a family of music lovers and who are well-known for their love of horse-racing. He soon emerged as a dazzling entertainer among his peers. Citing General Trees, Papa San, and Shabba Ranks as his earlier musical influences, he also has a lot of respect for the talent of Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley and Vybz Kartel, his childhood friend.
G7 has indeed made his mark on the dancehall scene since his days performing at local talent shows. As a metaphorical jockey sitting on the rhythm, his talent and keen social commentary is uncompromisingly direct yet catchy on the song “Dem a Devil”. The lyrics are swimming in a bowl of thematic soup. With the current trend of 'Do Di Maths' and living the high life, the song reinforces pride and satisfaction in not selling out.
The single “Love Yuh Right Now” was recorded on the Ice Box Riddim and produced on the Warrior Chief Label. “Nah Hold No Vibes” which is on the Nuh Fraid Riddim and produced by Jah Snowcone is doing well in the local dancehall with the release of the highly-anticipated video there is an expected buzz from music lovers. Nah Hold No Vibes, which speak to the strong musical legacy that is not being respected by the current generation of artistes, sends a powerful message regarding the showing of respect to original dancehall artistes. According to street promotion guru, Boswell ‘Stampede’ Lammie, the song has been getting a great response at the sessions where he has been promoting the song.
As G7 continues to record and promote great music, reggae and dancehall fans can expect to hear more creative offerings from this new artiste, including the recent release of the single: “Do Di Maths” produced by Terence McDonald for T7G Music. G7’s talent and hard work will no doubt take his musical career to new heights. G7 is here to draw on his global wealth of lyrics to become a leader in the dancehall/reggae music space. Stay tuned for his recent single “My Time Fi Buss”, by Kidamawi Jamakino Productions.
