Super Cat promises memorable performance for Sting 30

Supercat 2013 DancehallWilliam Maragh a.k.a. Super Cat, caught up with Barry G live on air in JamaicaBarry G got Cat live on the phone in New York as he was hanging out with his manager Earlton. Cat started out by acknowledging the greats who had passed on in the form of Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Garnet Silk, who passed this time in 1994.

The D.J. who also goes by the name ‘Wild Apache’ reminisced about the music and about the role Barry G and David Rodigan played in the music.  He spoke to sharing stage onSting with Ninja Man and others and rising to the occasion.  Super Cat says he will be in Jamaica shortly and alluded to the fact that patrons should look out for his performance on Sting 2013.  This was the DJ’s first interview in Jamaica in a dozen years and when he performs on Boxing day, it will be for the first time in a dozen years.

‘Cat’ released hit singles ‘si boops deh’, ‘cry fi di youth’‘sweets for my sweet’‘dolly my baby’‘wild apache’‘don dadda’ ‘Ghetto red hot’, ‘Dem nuh worry we’ in the late eighties and early nineties.  In 1992 signed to Columbia records, he released the album ‘Don Dadda’ and in 1993 on Sony Music he released ‘the good, the bad, the ugly and the crazy’ with his brother Junior cat, Junior Demus and Nicodemus.

Hardcore and unapologetic, the wild apache ‘Super Cat’ with the mic as his tool and the stage as his school, is sometimes conscious, militant to a fault and 100% 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 dance hall artist of the year in 1993.  He was also an early collaborator with a then unknown rapper born of Jamaican parents, Notorious B.I.G. featured 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.

His 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.  In 1997 Cat was featured on the number one hit “Fly” by Sugar Ray on their platinum album Floored.  Super Catcollaborated with India Arie 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.

Super Cat performed at Madison Square Garden with other Sting performers Mark Myrie a.k.a. Buju Banton and Barrington Levy. Cat also headlined the ‘Best of the Best’ concert in Miami in 2008, with Assassin, Etana, Barrington LevyBuju Banton, Junior Reid, Tony Matterhorn, Sizzla and Beenie Man.

Last year, his song “Dance Inna New York” was sampled for Nas‘ single “The Don“, from the rapper’s album Life Is Good, with Cat adding vocals to the hook. Super Cat made a surprise appearance at Massive B‘s concert in September this year and in the same week, a mix of his work with The Neptunes label was released to the internet.
