Back to humility. After doing most of their recordings in Port Antonio Jamaica, in November of 2009, Cee Gee and his management decided to relocate a part of their operations to Kingston City when they learnt that prominent Jamaican producer Mario C of 357 Records was impressed with Cee Gee’s talent after he got hold of a street album produced by Rudelikedat Entertainment with exclusive rhythms made by Kali Btz for their debut project called “Stayin’ Alive – Street Testimony”. Mario C viewed him a star immediately.
THE SONG WRITER
Since being at 357 Records Cee Gee has written fully and partially a host of songs for the King of the Dancehall Beenie Man. These include “Go-Go Club”, “Million Gyal”, “Badmind People”, “Gimme That Love” and “My Life So Happy”, just to name a few. In addition to this feat, Cee Gee has collaborated with Beenie Man in released tracks like “Roll Pan It” produced by Notnice Records, and “Mars Mi Gone” produced by MD Entertainment, and other hot tracks that yet to be released. In addition to this feat Cheston Grossett (Cee Gee) is acknowledged for his songwriter contribution on Nicki Minaj’s latest album for the track titled “Gun Shot”; a collaboration between Nicki and Beenie Man. Not many artistes’ catalogue is as colorful with as much solid collaboration with any dancehall icons. Talk about icons, the producer of “You Have Caught Me” by Dennis Brown at Finatic Records, sought after Cee Gee to collaborate in a trio with Trini Jacobs and Dennis Brown, to remake the hit track for Trini Jacobs’ album.
Undoubtedly a good songwriter, Cee Gee’s 2011 hit song “A Smaddy Dem” was originally written with the hopes of being performed by Bounty Killer. However the producer’s futile attempts to contact the Warlord was made good by Cee Gee’s astounding performances on both the audio and music video releases. With the momentum still at a high, Cee Gee connected solidly with dancehall when he recorded “Kill” which is a now hot dub-plate for sound system operators.
The hits didn’t stop there, in 2013 mega producer Kurt Riley released the Animal Instinct Riddim which included Cee Gee’s “Sittn Sittn”, and on the Decibels Riddim Cee Gee surprised producer ZJ Chrome with “Chat Some Supn”. And in 2014 U.S. producers David Ferrari and Paul Mice featured Cee Gee on their record titled “In Miami”. Cee Gee is also featured in “Back Pocket Rag” by Jamaican artiste/producer Xyclone based in U.S.
