Jamaica's Story on CD

The question is this, If you placed a Jamaican on a Hip Hop/Trance/Techno track and told him to flow without losing his yard essence (Jamaican Vibes), what would you get? Most likely confusion of course, unless the MC was Pedro! Peter Gracey a.k.a. Pedro was born and raised in Kingston Jamaica, and later moved to Florida. Pedro would be the first to admit, being raised on the streets of Waterhouse in a rough political climate, and then later in Miami, plays a large part in his 'no-nonsense' militant aura. Influenced by artists such as Shabba Ranks, Garnett Silk, Bob Marley,Papa San, Maxi Priest, Luciano and Sanchez, and fused with his passion for writing, it was inevitable that Pedro would be heard. Leaving Jamaica College at 17, Pedro resided in Miami, San Diego, Seattle and back to Miami where he mingled with the underground culture, toasting on local sound systems and appearing at parties in all three cities. After taking time off from the military, Pedro returned with a vengeance to show his skills. Working the underground Dance Hall circuit with the likes of Tinga Stewart, RPI, Sanchez, Luciano, Barrington Levy, Buju Banton and Gloria Estefan. He continued to record his first single entitled 'Life' in 1996. By this time Pedro has been touring with 303Infinity who then introduced him to Nadine Renee (RIP) (The voice behind Planet Soul.. ' Set U Free')where melodic Dance Hall hooks combined with a smooth yet rugged Hip Hop/ Trance-Techno flow. He managed to touch Electronic fans like no other Dance Hall artist ever did, representing the 'real Hip Hop/Techno' without losing his Jamaican borne flavor, 'yardcore.'
