Ganja has been the inspiration for many a reggae song, something deejay G Kevinston was aware of when he recorded Take A Puff. But if they really tune in, the listener will hear it is not just about smoking.

“I love weed, but what inspire me the most do this song is really the ladies that always keep asking for a draw off my spliff. That's why I call it Take A Puff,” he said.

G Kevinston wrote and produced the funk-inspired song for his Phat Sound Production. Released in June, it also features Intra and Dan Dan.

The song also represents a name change for the artiste previously known as Poetical. From the Southside community in central Kingston, he was influenced by a diverse list of dancehall acts including Super Cat, Little Lenny, Beenie Man, Bounty Killer, Shabba Ranks, Vybz Kartel.

His own career began seven years ago with Blacks on Top (with Daddy Mix), marking his debut. That was followed by a cover of Rihanna's Kiss It Better and Don't Bow.

G Kevinston, whose real name is Kevinston Green, has followed the process by Jamaican legislators to decriminalise ganja in the last three years. He points out that it is not only men who are happy with that development.

“Di lady dem love it to. A straight spliff to dem mouth,” he said.
