  • G3 NEE feat. Junior Cat - 2 Shotz (Hackney Street Mix - Radio Edit) / G3 NEE - 2 Shotz (Laid Back Cali Mix - Radio Edit)
Overall rating : (1 to 5 stars)   
Born, raised and still surviving in East London's notorious Hackney aka Murder Mile, G3 NEE (pronounced as G3 N Double E) easily found the love for ragga music. This was easily achieved as his mates and surroundings heavily influenced him. Learning to pick up the mic and rock it was different as he was the only Indian amongst many Jamaicans apart from his younger brother Addy Daddy.

The love on the mic grew as the days went by. He was inspired and still is inspired by the greats such as Super Cat, Shabba Ranks, Junior Cat, Nico Demus, Cutty Ranks, Cocoa Tea, Sanchez, Tony Rebel, Buju Banton, Bounty Killer and many more. This was the pivitol and most important part in the uprising and learning curb of the vibe behind the G3 NEE as and artist and as a movement. A short time in 1993 saw the G3 NEE leave the UK and venture into the USA (Los Angeles) where he resided for a year where he was exposed to Hip Hop & R'n'B at a great level and therefore he began to like Hip Hop & RnB, as it was always on the Box channel.

This was the second pivotal point in his life, as he started mc-ing to Hip Hop and combining this with his ragga vocals to fuse some mad wicked vibes. Obviously this was and is extremely unique, as you do not come across artists everyday that are lyrically flexible in 2 genres of music. On "2 Shotz (Hackney Street Mix - Radio Edit)" G3 NEE teams up with one of his inspirators, Junior Cat aka Di'Original Wild Apache Indian. Backed by a nice hybrid riddim both artists drop their lyrics in their own distinctive style and deliver a decent tune with a strong Hip Hop flavour. On the flipside we're treated to a laid back solo version of "2 Shotz", a track that definitely will be enjoyed by many Hip Hop fans, but probably won't make any serious impression when heard by ragga dancehall fans.
