    For those who are interested the term comes from a certain style of dancehall that came about in '87 onwards.

    People like Super Cat and Buju were the original jump up artists. Fast forward this clip to 6m02 and you'll understand why it was called 'jump up'.

    The term "Jump Up" comes from a sub genre of drum and bass music. It originally started in 2008 when a Dj Hazard released a track called Machete.


    Hope this helps

    Wrong, jump up comes from what the speakers whisper to the vinyl needle so they don't have to endure more of that shite.
