About GRANDE GATO AKA SUPAFLYY PREEST
GRANDE GATO aka SUPAFLYY PREEST is an influential force whether he is in la calle de Norte Carolina (North Carolina) or Miami, Florida. 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 #4 (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; 2009 DIXIE CLASSIC FAIRGROUNDS) and MIAMI FLORIDA frequently (2003 UMOJA festival sponsored by LUKE RECORDS; I/O club in 2006). 2006 was also the year GRANDE GATO had his book BREAKING STEREOTYPES published which featured one of his LATINO performances on the front cover. 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. In 2009 GRANDE GATO released his sixth CD album, “PARA GANAR”(“IN ORDER TO WIN”), which features singing by his business partner/music artist MS. BONITA SENORITA. Through both his music and books GRANDE GATO is bringing the Latino culture, African American culture, and other cultures closer together which is undoubtedly muy bueno. Dios Te Bendiga!
