A voice that seems to echo from the depths of humanity with the capability to uplift the spirits of many. Major Daps or “Daps” as many of his colleagues call him, was born on the beautiful and influential island of Jamaica. Major Daps uses his experiences from Jamaica as well as the love and wisdom of his Grandmother Irene, Mama Maudlyn, and the rest of his close knit family members to create a sense of passion, culture, and admiration within music. Love is no stranger to Major Daps. His ability to express the pain of heartbreak, the pleasure of companionship, and the anticipation of romance makes him an incredibly versatile artist.

His stage presence will captivate an audience,while his voice will draw each listener closer to his personal emotions. Major Daps has had the wonderful opportunity to work with and open up for artists like Lady Saw, Anthony B, Capleton, Shabba Ranks, Sizzla, Maxi Priest, Cocoa Tea, Terror Fabulous, and many others. Major Daps is determined to make music that will continue to be informative as well as entertaining. If someone would ask this artist where his music would be in the future he would reply, “Beyond the future,it will uplift the people and teach them the right things about life”. Major Daps has always used Reggae music as a tool and outlet to express his innermost thoughts and feelings. For this reason, he is known as an intimate artist, and songs like “Dem A Old Murderer”, and “Ghetto Vibes” will evoke tears, laughter, and love. Major Daps thanks his grandmother for the development of his voice, but he humbly gives credit for his lyrical inspiration to Emperor Haile Selassie I and the teachings of his Imperial Majesty. Major Daps is currently traveling the world, so that his resounding voice and musical genres of cleanliness, godliness and righteousness can be heard around the world…
CJ Spotlight Interview With Major Daps.
Born in Clarendon, Jamaica, Major Daps is working on a synergy of the roots reggae music of the past with that of the present. In this CJ Spotlight, we talk to Major Daps about what makes his music and what his music means.
Talk about your music.
I do reggae music – positive reggae music to uplift the people. For the future is here right now, so we’re going beyond the future to teach the next generation – that’s how we roll.
Who are your inspirations?
Everybody that does positive work in the music field, from the heart, is my inspiration, really. But my main inspiration as a youth growing up was Lieutenant Stitchie, because of how he wrote lyrics and represented to other people. That would be my inspiration — to climb the ladder of success.
How would you describe your music?
I would say a positive vibration for everyone’s heart to feel, in a positive sense. Just to uplift everyone – culturally, in a mental way, and to be an inspiration. I would describe my music as message music.
How much is spirituality a part of your music?
A million percent or more. That’s how it goes – a million percent or more spiritual. It’s all spiritual. – it never changes.
You’ve lived in Jamaica and in the US. Does your music take on aspects of where you live?
Yes. From my upbringing coming up, whenever i would venture out of one area to the next, it’s an experience. So it brings a lot more to your knowledge, so you write from where you’re coming from, where you’re headed, where you’re going. That’s how it has to be – you write what you experience, what you believe, and what you know. So my music comes across through the powers of Rastafari, that’s how it rise.
What are you working on right now?
Currently working on another project to come out. I just finished It’s Time (H.I.M. Is Here Album) – it’s already on the road. Then we’re working on finishing the album.

What is reggae? It’s a word that has a meaning simultaneously static and dynamic. To answer the question, Caribbean Journal talked to four major reggae artists from around the Caribbean at the Coalition to Preserve Reggae in Brooklyn, New York. We talked to Jamaica’s Major Daps and Ed Robinson and St Vincent and the Grenadines’ Ossie Dellimore and Qshan Deya. The moral of the story? As Ed Robinson sees it, defining reggae is simple: it’s real. See the video below for more, and follow CJ as we place the spotlight on each of these artists in the coming weeks.
Throughout Europe and America and in Latin America, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Amsterdam, L.A and the Island is good place marking.

Why Choose Us?
We Work With The Best In The Business.
Music Business and The Law.
The business of music is not as simple as most of us operating in Jamaica tend to believe. Unfortunately this very simplistic view of the business of music has led to the making of some poor decisions, by artiste and producers alike that have set back not just these individuals, but also the entire local industry.
ARTISTE MANAGERS VERSUS INVESTOR
In my daily activities as an music producer, artiste manager and label owner, I come across so music case that provide evidence of the need for education and business awareness building among the practitioners in the reggae and dancehall music community. One of the most common misunderstanding I have encountered recently relates to the role, responsibilities and entitlement of an artiste manager, as against the role responsibilities and entitlement of an investor who spends money an artiste development and promotion. .
The business of music production and distribution is far more complex than most other business production and distribution process than I have encountered. One may ask, why is this so? The answer is a very simple one.
