Artist Name: GRANDE GATO aka SUPAFLYY PREEST aka J.O.T
GRANDE GATO aka SUPAFLYY PREEST aka J.O.T. is an influential force whether he is performing his SPANISH songs in Norte Carolina (North Carolina), Miami, Florida, or overseas in HAVANA, CUBA. Although he is African American, GRANDE GATO had Latino influences in life that introduced him to both formal and informal(slang) Spanish language. Starting out as a breakdancer and DJ, GRANDE GATO tasted his first success at a party he did at the Sawtooth Center in WINSTON-SALEM, NORTH CAROLINA. He went from being one of the hottest DJ's in the N.C. underground scene to one of the hottest track making producers. Eventually GRANDE GATO started writing and rapping in Spanish. People started telling him that his Spanish lyrics were caliente, so he continued. Staying true to his roots as a DJ, GRANDE GATO has pressed his music on 12" vinyl, or "wax" as some call it, as well as CD. The 12" vinyl projects are entitled NORTH CAROLINA STREET HEAT, and are in series starting at volume #1 and the most current being #7 (reggaeton remixes of songs by GRANDE GATO aka J.O.T. are on #4). Because he has made rap songs in Spanish and also made Reggaeton remixes to some of those songs, GRANDE GATO has performed music for the Latino culture in both NORTH CAROLINA (2008 HISPANIC FESTIVAL “FIESTA”; 2007 Twin City Ribfest; 2009 NC STATE “EL SALSABOR” event; 2012 at his live regueton show at THE POURHOUSE NIGHTCLUB in RALEIGH; consecutively in the years 2009/2010/2011/2012/2013/2014/2015/2016/2017/2018 for the annual DIXIE CLASSIC FAIR at the LJVM COLISEUM) and MIAMI FLORIDA frequently (2003 UMOJA festival sponsored by LUKE RECORDS; I/O LOUNGE NIGHTCLUB in 2006); the 2014 CORE DJ EVENT hosted by DJ DNA from SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO, in 2017 at MIAMI LIVE NIGHTCLUB for his reggaeton/trap show); & 2018 MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND overseas at THE MADRIGAL NIGHTCLUB in HAVANA, CUBA. 2006 was also the year GRANDE GATO had his book BREAKING STEREOTYPES published which featured one of his LATINO performances on the front cover. To his credit, there are four more books published by GRANDE GATO: PRESS ON(MAKING A WAY OUT OF NO WAY); (I COULD HAVE GOTTEN REVENGE BUT I DIDN'T; NORTH CAROLINA STREET HEAT; ABOUT J.O.T.). In 2007 he met Angela Star of INDIE STREET LATINO at the magazine’s music venue on Park Avenue in Miami. It was there GRANDE GATO gave the 12” vinyl Volume#4 to INDIE STREET LATINO’s boss lady and was later interviewed by Angela Star that same year. GRANDE GATO released his sixth CD album, “PARA GANAR”(“IN ORDER TO WIN”) in 2009, which featured singing by his business partner/music artist MS. BONITA SENORITA. In 2010 he released his seventh CD album "ESA QUE PASA"("THAT's WHAT's UP) featuring new songs by both he and his business partner BONITA SENORITA. Also released in 2010 is the 12" vinyl NORTH CAROLINA STREET HEAT project(Volume#5) which features SPANISH TRACKS like ESA QUE PASA and a DJ megamix of his song PARA GANAR which is on the new CD album as well. In 2011 GRANDE GATO releases his eighth CD album titled "LIMPIAR PALABRAS"("TO CLEAN WORDS") featuring his partner once again MS. CRYSTAL aka BONITA SENORITA. With his ninth CD album, “VERDAD”(“TRUE”), GRANDE GATO hit with mucho reggaeton tracks such as VERDAD, REGGAETON, & the remix to BONITA SENORITA’s song AROMATIC. The following year was the release of “NUEVA MUSICA”(“NEW MUSIC”) for 2013, the tenth CD album for the J.O.T. RECORDS indie record label!!!! This latest project features a futuristic Spanglish track, GOOD vs EVIL(remix), with partner BONITA SENORITA that starts the CD off.
