Two Sevens Clash is the debut album by roots reggae band Culture, recorded with producer Joe Gibbs at his own Joe Gibbs Recording Studio in Kingston in 1976, and released on Gibbs' eponymous label in 1977. The album's title is a reference to the date of July 7, 1977.
Hill said "Two Sevens Clash," Culture's most influential record, was based on a prediction by Marcus Garvey, who said there would be chaos on July 7, 1977, when the "sevens" met. With its apocalyptic message, the song created a stir in his Caribbean homeland and many Jamaican businesses and schools shuttered their doors for the day.
The liner notes of the album read: "One day Joseph Hill had a vision, while riding a bus, of 1977 as a year of judgment -- when two sevens clash -- when past injustices would be avenged. Lyrics and melodies came into his head as he rode and thus was born the song "Two Sevens Clash" which became a massive hit in reggae circles both in Jamaica and abroad. The prophecies noted by the lyrics so profoundly captured the imagination of the people that on July 7, 1977 - the day when sevens fully clashed (seventh day, seventh month, seventy-seventh year) a hush descended on Kingston; many people did not go outdoors, shops closed, an air of foreboding and expectation filled the city."

John Brown's Body is an eight-person modern reggae group. The group has released six studio albums and toured across the U.S. for ten years. Originally more deep-rooted in the more traditional roots and foundation stylings of Reggae that helped to build their reputation as a serious act, their music (starting from 2003) began to take a direction toward a more modern, spaced-out sound with an occasional blend of the traditional. As such, their music has been described by the New York Daily News as "more Massive Attack than Marley", and "reverent and revolutionary at the same time", a nod to their futuristic take on reggae music and their ability to put a unique twist on this music.

10 Foot Ganja Plant is a roots/dub Reggae group primarily based in upstate New York that is a spinoff collective of the popular group John Brown's Body, and is spearheaded by former JBB dub engineer Craig Welsch. The group lineup does not consist of the entire JBB lineup, but more so implements a jamband feel and often employing the assistance of many special guest artists.
One of the main keys to 10 Ft. Ganja Plant's legacy is their consistent shroud of mystery, considering that, for the most part, fans are baffled as to whom the unfamiliar guest artists are in particular as there are often no personnel credits featured on any of their albums. Their key vocalists, however, were Ras Jay Champay, former JBB lead singer Kevin Kinsella, and his protιgι Rob Bellnier (whose voice was virtually identical to Kinsella's).While their music today has a wide range of styles, most of their music often has a more traditional vintage '70s Jamaican sound to it.
