JUPITAR IS THE MOST UNDERRATED DANCEHALL ACT
Real Name Micheal O’mint, stage Name Jupitar, also known as the General started his Career as part of the Black Empire Clique which Consisted of himself, Episode,Kamelyon and Virgo.
His first big hit as a solo act was “Nah F**k Again”, this was after his feature on Eazzy’s “GoGo whine” which became a big hit and got music fanatics asking questions as to who this powerhouse was.
After his mainstream outdooring, he hopped on another phenomenal slow wind tune with Trigmatic titled “Uptown Downtown”.this song had major airplay but I still felt it was slept on in a way.
He has always been likened to Vybz Kartel a.k.a the ‘World Boss’ himself due to some style similarities but if you listen deeper you’ll realize he has a very unique style.his carefully chosen lyrics and vocals sets him in a different league from all the other dance hall acts in the industry. When his major hit “Money Box” dropped it shook the Airwaves and clubs for over a year, due to the Songs impact he had to do a remix which he got other Great acts on as well. Both the Original and remix were always played hand in hand.
Not long after he dropped another typical Jamaican style song titled “BadMan Place”, this I always had bumping in my headphones and speakers continuously. I’m not really a DANCEHALL music sort of guy to be sincere but Jupitar always brings out that part in me. He got this extra flair, energy and delivery style that sets him apart from the rest.
He has jumped on a lot of Riddims which he dominated more cos of his unique style and rythm. He has a couple of inspirational music that also brings out that ‘Go getter’ in everyone. These include “Dream”,”Smile Again” and “Fire” on which he featured another phenomenal DANCEHALL act Stonebwoy.
These are just a few to mention and also his new release “Wah Do Dem” has received major airplay since the day it dropped till date. I keep it bumping even as I write this piece.
Talks are he is Cooking Up an Album Titled “Alpha”.
From my little knowledge, I know Alpha means Leader or Head of a pack. This is being anticipated by his core fans and also music elites that know his capabilities when ever he steps in a booth. Rumours in music listening circles are, he will be dropping a surprise just the coming week, He also got a Remix of his Enemies tune with PatoRanking coming soon which we should look forward to with it’s visuals. Judging from all these upcoming Projects I’m guessing a major takeover, it’s like the General is about to Actually Lead the DANCEHALL pack as its “AlPHA”.
The General has been slept on and this is like COME BACK SEASON. Lets keep our fingers crossed and our Ears attentive as we wait for Greatness from The General.
