Veteran dancehall/Reggae artiste Super Cat wants reggae to flourish


Veteran dancehall artiste Super Cat is asking for fans of Jamaican music, along with the artistes to understand it in a more wholesome way. According to Super Cat, dancehall is a place and the music that Jamaican artistes produce is reggae.

The deejay says when Jamaicans do not call the genre by its correct name, the force of it is watered down.

Cat was adamant that what is important right now is to ensure that the youth in the reggae music industry understand what publishing is and the value of publishing to their careers.

He believes that the youth need representation because there are still certain mistakes being made in terms of career management.

According to the 'Don Dada', it's time for youths in reggae to be appearing on 'cribs' because the music is flourishing.

The Apache said reggae built hip hop and that genre is flourishing, but that this was not the case for Jamaican artistes who bring money to the country.

"Which promoter ever ram a venue?" "Which promoter can sing nutten?" Cat questioned.

We asked Super Cat, which artiste has been an inspiration for him and if he has a favourite.

"Well my favourite dem, the great late Nicodemus and the great Ninja Man and my inspiration come from Rankin Trevor. Me a do di ting from me about nine."

OPINION ON CRIME

The deejay has lived outside of Jamaica for a while and so we asked him his take on the crime situation in the country.

"A tree without root will be blowing in the wind. The youth have no root. The crime have a root and the root is government and journalists who are not doing investigative work to expose corruption."

William 'Super Cat' Maragh released hit singles Si Boops Deh, Cry Fi Di Youth, Sweets for my Sweet, Dolly My Baby, Wild Apache, Don Dadda, Ghetto Red Hot, and Dem Nuh Worry We in the late 1980s and early '90s.

In 1992, signed to Columbia records, Cat released the album Don Dadda and in 1993 released The Good, The Bad, The Ugly and The Crazy with his brother Junior Cat, Junior Demus and Nicodemus for Sony Records.



Hardcore and unapologetic, the Wild Apache, with the mic as his tool and the stage as his school, is sometimes conscious, militant to a fault and 100 per cent controversial.

The DJ, who appeared on Killamanjaro back in the day, was featured on the remix of Jump with Kriss Kross in 1992 and also collaborated with them in 1993 for their song It's Alright.

Those hits made Super Cat the Source magazine's dancehall artiste of the year in 1993.

He was also an early collaborator with Jamaica-born Notorious B.I.G. featuring the then unknown artiste along with Mary J. Blige, 3rd Eye and Puff Daddy on the B-side remix of Dolly My Baby in 1993, three years before Biggie would make it to Sting 1996.

Cat's version of Fats Domino's My Girl Josephine, performed with Jack Radics was included in the soundtrack to the film Pret-a-Porter in 1994.

Super Cat collaborated with IndiaArie on her hit song Video in 2001, and with Jadakiss and the Neptunes on The Don Of Dons in 2003.

Also in 2003, he collaborated with 112 for their song Na Na Na Na.

Following the death of his long-time road manager Fred 'The Thunder' Donner in 2004, Super Cat released a multi-cd tribute album featuring Yami Bolo, Michael Prophet, Linval Thompson, Nadine Sutherland, Sizzla and others.

Last year, Cat's song Dance Inna New York was sampled in Nas' single, The Don, from the rapper's album Life is Good with Cat adding vocals to the hook.

Super Cat has a new single out called Reggaematic.

The Don Dadda is looking forward to exploding on the Jamworld stage, Boxing Day, December 26.

He is looking forward to seeing friends and fans and says we are to expect a 'performance' at Sting 2013.
