Maestro Don delivers at Flava Unit's 5th anniversary celebrations

Maestro Don - Contributed

Warrior Chief Records artiste Maestro Don delivered an emphatic performance during Flava Unit's 5th anniversary celebrations in Portmore recentlythat showed why he is widely regarded as one of Portmore's top dancehall-reggae prospects for 2013.

He hit the stage, Ramping Rough and immediately got a good ovation. Then he changed gears to perform the lyrically hard-hitting Nuh Fear to forwards and lighters from the large crowd. But it was when he did the gimmicky Gi-gi-gi in his signature high-energy style, that the crowd went wild. They loved his humorous lyrics and his witty rhymes.

A week later, Maestro Don also performed at a show in St Thomas, shelling down the old Goodyear Warehouse in Morant Bay with his swashbuckling style of deejaying.

He performed Ramping Rough and then did some stage show songs that he has not recorded in a studio and the crowd loved his use of metaphors and his sick offbeat rhymes.He got forwards straight throughout his performance, and in fact he was so good, was called to do an encore. He spat some more lyrics and the crowd eruptedinto cheers again.

"When mi come off, pure autographs backstage, girls, all police ah come congratulate me to how me deal wid it," Maestro Don said, laughing. "That ah the best performance mi ever do, the people dem did a feel me."

'Full Saddle'

He is booked to perform at a stage show over Caymanas Track in Portmore called 'Full Saddle' at the end of January.

Last year, the rhyme slinger inked a recording deal with champion jockey Dane Nelson, which he hopes will propel him into the limelight of local dancehall.

Maestro Don first earned major props in 2011 when he clashed with a deejay called Khyda at Sting 2011, and lyrically annihilated him, earning him a legion of fans.

The Nelson-owned Warrior Chief Productions, bankrolled the marketing and promotion of his latest video, Ghetto Dreams. The video is now playing on CVM, RE, HYPE and a number of other cable stations.
