Dancehall artist Admiral Tibet was born in Freehill, Jamaica in 1960. He is known for his genuine consciousness. A member of the Twelve Tribes of Israel since adolescence, Tibet avoids slackness in his lyrics. Tibet got his start in Jamaican clubs and in sound systems as a teen, but did not record until he was in his 20s because he did not want to move to Kingston. With his own original style of crooning, Tibet was a popular voice of the '80s and one of the few singers who maintained a presence in the deejay-dominated period of the early to mid-1990s.
