About DJ Suppa Natty (Biography)
At the age of five, Suppa Natty, born in a family of musicians, developed a true passion for music. Both of his parents loved music, and his sister and mother are professional singers.
Music grew to be a part of him and inevitably, would lead to his career in the music and entertainment industry. As a singer, promoter and disc jockey, he made his mark on the map at a very young age.
He later used the name Suppa Natty and has penetrated the mainstream dancehall reggae sector, promoting events and playing with major artists such as Beres Hammond, Capleton and Lady Saw. Through the years, he has gained a lot of supporters, and an extensive variety of people come out just to hear him play.
Born in Canada to Jamaican parents, Suppa Natty has remained true to his Jamaican roots. He started using his networking and event planning skills at a very young age to promote basement dances and parties with various sounds and artists like Silver Star, Lindo P., Barry Culture, and many more.
Although Suppa Natty found contentment in this, he desired to be more involved with the actual music playing, so at the age of 13, along with Bigga, he co-founded Soul Beat Sound. Later, Soul Beat would merge with King Kris to create Black Diamond.
This transition was the beginning of Suppa Natty’s explosion on the Reggae scene. Black Diamond left an impression, or as Jamaicans would say, “dem done di place” anywhere they played.
As anyone in any business or the music business is aware of, before reaching full potential, you go through a series of transformations. Suppa Natty is not an exception; later, he left Black Diamond to play with One Draw.
He would find himself, in this season, playing a lot of big dances with sounds like King Turbo, Military, Black Reaction, and many more. Also, he played for successful artists like Admiral Tibet and Cujo Banton, just to mention a few examples.
The chance to branch out quickly came. Suppa Natty felt the need to go solo after 3 years with One Draw. The “Suppa Natty” style of playing was the start of this venture, a period for him to come into his own.
“Mashing up” the place wherever he played and genuinely versatile, he developed from strictly being a reggae DJ and started playing for wider audiences. Though his primary love is still reggae, he delights in playing other music genres.
Suppa Natty has discovered his niche, and he is creating a difference in the reggae music industry in Canada. He has performed shows with the following:
• Lady Saw
• Baby Cham
• Elephant Man
• Gregory Iaacss
• Junior Reid
• John Holt
• Rich Boy
• Joe Budden
• Royce 5’9
• Stone Love
• Collie Buddz
• Chinese Assassin
• Mr. Vegas
• Clinton Sparks
• Queen Ifrica
• Ding Dong
• Mad Squad (from Jamaica)
• England’s reggae ambassador, David Rodigan
• Munga, and the list goes on
At Caribana 2008, Suppa Natty had his own float and was nominated Reggae DJ of the Year for 2009 and 2010 Stylus Awards. Suppa Natty is on the move and won’t be looking back.
With new doors open for him, he has a vision to carry his name global.
