I don't think so because Welding came out in 1975 but 2 Sevens was recorded in 1976 and released in 1977.
Sounds similar though.

That's the vocal to Big Youth's "Natty Dread She Want" as opposed to I Roy's "Welding".

It's just another take on the Soldering rhythm, hence the "Welding" title.

Derived from an old ribald mento song, adapted many times through the various stages of JA music.
