For Wales, it was a great opportunity to collaborate with Shaggy on this project, who he rates highly. Even more special to Wales was recording on a riddim “Take it Easy,” which was originally produced by the late champion of Rocksteady Hopeton Lewis. Thankfully, Lewis was alive to witness the revamp of his historical riddim. By all means, Sting International offers fans a revitalized, fresh take on Lewis’ classic riddim. It’s fun and catchy, attracting attention from radio DJ’s and sounds/selectors alike. Other artists featured on the riddim, include Shaggy, Christopher Martin, Red Fox, Screechy Dan and GC. So, Reggae fans, we encourage you to get ‘Ready Fi Josey’ by downloading the red-hot single today!
Earlier this year, during his “Return of the Outlaw” tour, which touched down in more than a dozen U.S. cities, Wales wowed thousands of fans across the country. Never missing a beat, despite a 15 year U.S. performance hiatus, Wales delivered memorable performances, chock full of 80’s anthems and loads of energy. What made Wales’ tour extra rewarding, was the outpour of love he received from multi-generational audiences.
Wales’ “Ready Fi Josey” single, appearance in popular dancehall artist Konshen’s “Don Dada” video earlier this summer and heralded performances before diverse audiences across the country during the “Return of the Outlaw” tour have collectively solidified Wales’ grip on young fans and fellow Dancehall fraternity members. Notably, a hot Wales classic is slated to be remade by a popular young artist soon.
The certainty about Karamanti is her take on any issue of reality. Karamanti has grown her art through her quest for truth and utter of reality; as a reality artiste she has shown consistency in her delivery of a message in each of her music.
Vocals recorded by Snysh at Mixing Lab Studio in Kingston Jamaica and performed by Karamanti, ‘IT’S A LIE’ was produced by Christopher G for Christopher-G Records & Black on Black Productions in St. Thomas, Jamaica, on the Movie Time Riddim.
Though the song sets life as a movie in which each actor doubles as a lead and director, Karamanti was quick to draw the rhetoric that life is really ongoing and indeed not a movie you can pause.This is a song that identifies much of modern life’s routines as artificial and sadly false. ‘IT’S A LIE’ is a song that encourages its audience to turn away from the norm of following other people’s dreams, to staying focused on one’s own purpose in life.
“lights camera action yu on
star yu owna show from di day weh yu born
yu a di lead actor no second in command
so film can end any way weh yu waa
a yu fi determine an know weh fi gwan
select all di cast members co stars
di point me a mek is yu a di boss
an a real ife dis no film weh fi pause”
You are not second in command, “IT’S A LIE”, the truth of the matter is that you are in control of your life, you are the boss player, lead actor, director so play a good role. This is the message in this song, herein attached » “IT’S A LIE”!

From reggae royalty rises singing sensation Garnet Smith Jr., son and namesake of the legendary reggae artist Garnet Silk. Exposed to the world of music since his birth on April 3 in Mandeville, Jamaica, Garnet Jr. is a true musical artisan and today continues to walk the path of a musical legacy that is unparalleled and is, in fact, his birthright.
Garnet Jr. fatefully entered the rhythmic realm with his first professional recording in a studio at the tender age of 13, after receiving much encouragement from family and friends to sing for years. Family friend and producer Lloyd “Pecus” Anderson recorded his first track, “Jah A Guide.” The song was never officially released as a single but granted Garnet Jr. invaluable recording experience, along with his first taste of lyrical liberation.
Maturing over the years into a seasoned singer and songwriter, Garnet Jr. makes music that flows from his soul. His lyrics showcase intelligence, wit and charm, as he shares a relatable narrative of pursuing his dreams, along with his everyday life experiences. His musical styling is a fusion of hip-hop, R&B and reggae, and is greatly influenced by his father, as well as other reggae luminaries such as Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Jah Cure and I-Wayne, and also the King of Pop himself, Michael Jackson; they have all captured the ears of this auspicious artist, and thus, contribute to his genre-bending sound.
Garnet Jr. and his brother Eon “Duce Califa” Smith are currently working together under the Blu Rok Music label, which emerged from a rap collective that was created during Duce Califa’s high school years. The imprint comprises of a number of other young talents who are pooling their skills to become a collaborative force to be reckoned with in music.
With his catalog produced at Blu Rok Music, Garnet Jr.’s first single “Condolences” is a hip-hop, R&B and reggae hybrid in which the connection to his artistry, especially through his delivery, is evident. His other singles “We Can Par” and “Call It Quits” are dancehall fused with R&B, and he strikes a chord on both sides of the gender aisle with these catchy, romantic odes. He also teams up with Duce Califa and Sugar Black of Black Judah, who was incidentally a friend of the late Garnet Silk, for a heartfelt collaboration called “Tired Of Running.” The song contains a line from one of Garnet Silk’s tracks and pays tribute to him. Music videos for “Condolences” and “Tired Of Running” were produced on location in Jamaica and have been on rotation on television channels at home and abroad. His latest singles include ”Lady Divine” and ”Promises,” both produced by Earl “Chinna” Smith, as Garnet Jr. continues to add to legacy of his father.
2014 finds Garnet Jr. featured on the official soundtrack of the Jamaican-Canadian independent feature film, Destiny. His original song “Eyes On The Horizon” was composed specifically for the Destiny soundtrack and was produced by famed reggae producer Clive Hunt. This coveted inclusion on a movie soundtrack is evidence of the overall welcome and embrace from the music industry for this blossoming entertainer.
As Garnet Jr. casts the stones for his own legacy, he also plans to study Business Administration and finesse the business skills needed to carve a niche for his gifted talents in today’s competitive music industry. His quest is nourished by unbridled support from his mother Novlyn Banton, who has every confidence in her son’s success, in music and beyond.
Realizing that his prized pedigree brings enormous responsibility, Garnet Jr. is proving to be a dynamic and talented entertainer, which only compliments and strengthens his father’s legacy, through the younger Garnet’s relentless work ethic and boundless creativity. Indeed, this heir to the throne is paving his own way and earning his right, with each beat and lyric, to his very own crown.
