Daddy G is a British musician. He is a member of trip hop group Massive Attack. Robert Del Naja and Andrew Vowles also are/have been members of the band. His mother’s surname is Clarke.

He has stated:

When my parents came over in the late [’50s] from Barbados and there was a lot of West Indians in Bristol, there wasn’t anywhere for them to go [to party]. The British culture really hadn’t really catered for the new influx of West Indians they didn’t… there wasn’t any social infrastructure for them. So they made their own parties… called Shabeen’s and Blues parties and you used to get the whole neighborhood turn up on Fridays and Saturdays at somebody’s house.
