Admiral Tibet

Admiral Tibet, also known as ”Mr. Reality” is a legendary Jamaican Dancehall singer known for his ”cultural & conscious” lyrics.

Tibet was one of the few artists from the early days of digital reggae to focus on ”conscious” themes in his lyrics. He has been described as ”the most consistently conscious singer of his age”.

He began performing in Jamaican clubs and with Soundsystem during his teens. He made his first recordings when he was in his 20s; a reluctance to move to Kingston played a part in this. He eventually made the move in 1982.

He was less prolific in the 1990s but returned with more albums in the 2000s, and is still delivers eclectic performances at his shows in the 2020s.
