MAMA SAID KNOCK YOU OUT!
Meet the new Hip Hop collective that are here to make you recognise and empower your spirit with their knockout combination.
G‑Camp are a Hip Hop collective from London. The group was constructed by Majesty in early 2017 and they released their debut single in March on the MajestyKingdom site. Though Majesty has circulated the Hip Hop and music scene for years under another alias, his vision has always been to be a part of an “army”. The group was formulated with the aim to “eliminate negativity and to empower positivity” in the minds and spirits of society. The Hip Hop collective consists of Majesty, O.T.T (Only The Truth), and S.H.9.
Majesty, also referred to as the ‘Father of G‑Camp’ is the upper cut in the G‑Camp combination. An upper cut can initiate or finish a combination and Majesty does just that, he is the force that binds G‑Camp together. He creates the beats, organises studio time, arranges the group’s performances and even went as far as directing and editing the collective’s music video for their single Recognise. His flow and lyricism reflect the sound and essence of 90’s Hip Hop; however, his mentality is purely set on moving forward and the power of the Holy Spirit.
“Straight spiritual that what the combination of (G‑Camp) is. People need to understand that there’s power in the words that we speak, so just know (that) if you have wisdom…then God has blessed you to speak common sense and slap some conciseness in people’s minds, bodies and spirits. People are getting desensitised by listening to a lot of junk” — Majesty
A jab is known for its speed and power of execution and that is exactly what O.T.T exhibits. I had the privilege of sitting in on a few of G‑Camp’s recording sessions. I had a contrasting view of Majesty writing his lyrics with a pen and pad while O.T.T tapped away quietly on his iPhone, anyone would consider him the typical anti-social teenager. The most beautiful thing about O.T.T is not knowing what he is going to come up with and then hearing so much realness and substance from a 15-year-old. For a youngster he has a very strong yet calm presence on stage and just like most sharp jabs; you may not see it coming but you defiantly feel it when it lands. He may be a new school rapper but he possesses the value and essence of authentic Hip Hop. His lyrical efficiency combined with his firm delivery makes him very deadly.
“I’m not the tallest brother, I’m not the coolest brother” — O.T.T
Between Majesty and O.T.T they bridge a gap between old school and new school Hip Hop lovers. Unity has always and will always be a fundamental part of the culture. One of Hip Hop’s most classic and powerful songs that embodies the spirit of unity was penned by Queen Latifah. U.N.I.T.Y is a Hip Hop anthem that not only stands at the forefront of being united, it is also empowering and uplifting to all women. With the being said; All Hail S.H.9! She represents the sisterhood of Hip Hop and is the hook in the G‑Camp combo. The hook is a powerful punch with knockout power and S.H.9 embraces every aspect of that through her style, spirit and candid lyrics. She is more than a pretty face and effortlessly owns the mic, perks your ears and captures your attention. She speaks her truth and unapologetically stands as a Kween.
“I got a vision and a plan, God Over Devils is the G‑Camp brand” – S.H.9
G‑Camp bring truth, unity and power to the worldwide community of Hip Hop. You can catch them live in action in London at the Millfield Theatre on 28th July 2017 alongside Genesis Elijah and Dun D.
