Not sure -- but I think it means, to be held in bondage, slavery.

According to the Dictionary of Jamaican English (Cassidy & Le Page):

Ginal (or Jinal) - A clever, crafty or tricky person. A crook (there are overtones with obeah, i.e. black magic).

And Max Romeo gives his explanation of the word 'ginalship' hlafway through this interview:

(P.S. Has anyone got the dub version of the Black Crucial song they can upload somewhere? I've played this to death on the Makasound 'Wanted' set, and obviously the single is nowhere to be found :roll: ).
