It’s dope when you can find the perfect Producer for your tracks. Finding one to score your Film, is something special. Recently Rapper/Chef Dylan Golden released his Short Film, “Half Dead“, which takes you through the journey of a young man of color who is exasperated with the onslaughts of current social injustices we are facing in America and around the world. Filmed in Brooklyn, scoring for this Film was done Dylan (who also directed it), and Jamaican Producer Kris Karz! While the two are no strangers to collaborating with each other, both have combined their powers to spread the messages injected throughout this piece. The Film was released in conjunction with the Rapper’s new album, “The Revolution Of The Heart“.

Today marks the 45th Birthday of the one they call “Gargamel“, Mark “Buju Banton” Myrie! While the word is he’ll be a free man by the end of the year, we still celebrate him as if he’s already here.

Today, we feature a few songs that have sampled him. #FREEBUJU! Check them out below, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Montego Bay based DJ Jer keeps the crowd moving with his selections, but his remixes are something special. By now you should be familiar with Drake’s new “Scorpion” album, and his track “In My Feelings“. While the track has sparked a trending “In My Feelings Challenge“, Jer joins in on the fun with Dancehall Artist Vybz Kartel with a “In My Feelings” remix! Lifting Kartel’s “Do It” track, we get a dose of what the “World Boss” would sound like on a Drake track. Imagine if Kartel made it to Drake single. Keke, do you love Addi?

Yuh eva lose a real friend yet?
Recording Artist Voiide has been putting out music that paint a picture to some his experiences in life. Today’s entry however, will hit some folks hard.

“I’m from a place where crimes are never solved…”
The United States has some of the most recognized places in the world, and it is nothing short of experiences whether good or bad. It is home to many Immigrants who share their cultures over the years. Today, Rapper/DJ Stichie Don and legendary Rapper Rampage who share Caribbean backgrounds, speak on where they’re from on “Unsolved Mysteries“. Produced by DubLab Productions, the duo share their experiences over some hard hitting beat that’ll have you thinking you’re on the corner in the 90’s. From hustling days to seeing crime and corruption, they share stories that many others have seen in the places they call home. Stichie Don plans to follow up with an EP titled “Hard Doe Bread” which will be released later this year. Check out the track below, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
Have you all seen the new season of Luke Cage on Netflix? If you have, you’d notice the Jamaican influence throughout as Luke’s latest antagonist is a Jamaican by the name of “Bushmaster“. While that is pretty cool, many Jamaicans weren’t pleased with the representation of the Island, including the cringe-worthy butchering of the accent. While Writers Sharine and Andrayspoke about it earlier after a discussion with some of the folks behind the series, we’d like to look back at the times our accent was given a huge dose of injustice in Film. If only Hollywood would take the time out to do some proper research, and give natives a chance at properly representing the 876. If you’re interested in the Jamaican music played throughout, check out our latest playlist here. Check out these clips, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
Gabourey Sidibe – Tower Heist
If you’ve never seen this Eddie Murphy flick, you probably dodged a bullet. Anyway, while there were some decent scenes in this Comedy, this section is dedicated to Gabourey Sidibe’s role as Jamaican Odessa Montero. Pretty cringe worthy, even though the team behind it praised her role as “Refreshing“. Refreshingly bad I must say. Check out the clip.
Today we present to you straight outta Guyana, the Recording Artist, Rémar. With Summer showing its face, you know things are gonna get crazy for the next few weeks. With that said, Rémar wants to make sure you hit him up with that “On My Way” text, which happens to be the name of his latest single! Teaming up with Grammy-Nominated Producer Bizness Boi, we get this Island tinged banger that promises to get the party started! This one is for the late night rendezvous, the afternoon run to the beach or river, the weekend clubbing, the breakfast parties, and for everything else! Be on the look out for the music video, and be sure to request the song to be played on radio, and at any of your favourite events. “On My Way” is also available on all your favourite streaming services.

Happy Sunday folks! Hope you all are doing well. If you’re a regular customer of Netflix, then you’re aware that the latest season of Marvel Comics’ “Luke Cage” is here! This season gets pretty interesting as one of the season’s Antagonists, “Bushmaster“, has a Jamaican background. While we’re pretty excited about it (the terrible accents however, no no no…), we’re even more excited that a few classic Reggae songs can be heard throughout the 13 episodes.
Today, we present to you the songs that were featured in our latest Spotify Playlist! Enjoy hits from Bob Marley, Ini Kamoze, Gregory Isaacs, and many more! Stay here for the music, but you can Netflix & chill with “Luke Cage”: Season 2 later. Congrats to Jamaican Actor Desmond Dennis on being a part of the cast.
