Given birth to in Mexico but raised in Australia, Malisha Jupiter was subjected to hip-hop when American rappers became a fixture on Australian radio in the ’90s. After impressing her high-school close friends with her capability to sing along with those tunes on the air, she penned her 1st initial rhyme at age 14. Four years later on she was going to the same golf club every weekend, wanting to chat the promoter into allowing her on-stage. Ultimately he caved in and offered Maya Jupiter — her Turkish mom recommended the name to reveal the Mayan part of her history — her 1st possibility to perform before a crowd. Following that she continued to be the host from the RNB Superclub, Sydney’s largest R&B/hip-hop golf club night time. In 2001 she received the WEDDING DAY Out MC Fight and made an appearance in the film Lantana, playing a dance trainer. At that time she had started recording tunes inside a piecemeal style, but it wouldn’t normally become until 2003 that her debut recording, Today, will be released on Mom Tongues, an unbiased label concentrating on feminine performers. That 12 months she joined Route V as the sponsor of their Spirit Kitchen program and in addition became a member of the salsa-jazz music group Child Veneno, though she continued to be behind if they relocated to Britain. A year afterwards, Jupiter, who got previously hosted Alchemy on SBS radio, became the web host of the every week hip-hop present on Triple J, a nationwide radio station generally responsible for assisting Australian hip-hop coalesce right into a unified picture. Along with DJ Nick Toth and MC Trey, she shaped a group known as Foreign Heights, launching an record from the same name in 2007.
