Jah Patriot's new single, "Dream" on 13thStreetPromotions.com #Jamaica #Music #Dancehall

Jah Patriot Gives The Ladies Some Loving On “Dream”


Following the release of the singles “Keep The Faith“, “Crown”, and “Oh Gosh” this year, US based Reggae Recording Artist Jah Patriot is making all the necessary moves to keep the musical spotlight shining his way. He has been gaining great feedback locally and internationally for his releases, and has been showing that the veteran still has the power to make great music. When he’s not making songs that command a certain level of consciousness, or music that provides a positive message, he’s making something for the ladies like his new single, “Dream“.

Produced by Reggae Capital, Jah Patriot calls the ladies over as he spins clever lyrics to entice them. Flipping a Dancehall flow, “Dream” may surprise many, but those familiar with his career, knows that he always has a few tricks up his sleeve. The veteran Reggae Artist has been hinting that a new project is on the way from him, and we look forward to it becoming a reality hopefully later this year.

General B ft. Ghost - Mr. Boasy & Friend on 13thStreetPromotions.com #Jamaica #Dancehall #13thStreetPromotions

OLDIES SUNDAY: General B X Ghost – Mr. Boasy & Friend (1998)


Happy Sunday! Today’s Oldies Sunday selection is for those who like to show off, stunt, keep up appearances, and look down on people, but their priorities aren’t in order. The World is filled with them, but this man chose to call them out many years ago. His name is Dancehall Artist General B, and the track is called, “Mr. Boasy & Friend“.

Produced by Colin “Fatta” Walters on the “Top Shotta Riddim” and released through Colin Fat Records/VP Records in 1998, General B calls out those who always have the most money, have all the high end fashion, driving the latest vehicles, and who carry on like rich snobs. While some may say he is hating, the fact is those same people don’t have their priorities in order to the point where they don’t own anything outside of the fancy things, and one false move may find them homeless and flooded with bills causing embarrassment to themselves and their families. General B shares that he may not have the best of things at the time, but he is confident that at the end of the day, life is more in order than theirs. Fellow Dancehall Artist Ghost makes an appearance on the track by providing the chorus, and compliments General B’s deejaying well. “Mr. Boasy & Friend” was a hit for General B, and was one of many as he was a part of the legendary Monster Shack Crew with Ghost and Roundhead. The single was also featured on the group’s 1998 “Monster Party” album. General B is still active in the Dancehall circles, and has solidified himself as one of the contributors to some of the best years in Jamaican music.

THANK YOU GENERAL B!

The Purpose of Therapy: A Live Well Jamaica Feature & Campaign


As Jamaicans, we strive to achieve all things bright and beautiful. Our lifestyle is one that reflects livity and freedom; that is brand Jamaica. However, what has been severely affecting our liberating culture in recent times, is the stereotypical treatment of our men, ultimately enhancing an anti-climatic nature of not seeking help — therapy, in particular. This phenomenon has been a constant discourse as it continues to haunt men in our society from one generation to the next. In our daily activities, it is evident that a significant number of males in our society who face life-threatening experiences are more likely to cover up their emotions and repress their feelings.

For many of them, this repression tends to manifest in unpleasant ways such as violence and sometimes even imposter syndrome and depression. Yet, they are reluctant to seek professional help in an effort to release those burdens. What’s even more saddening, is that many persons aren’t aware that mental health facilities even exist. These are the reasons we are taking an in-depth approach to raising awareness.

Therefore, this campaign ‘(His) tory: Normalize Therapy for Young Men’, seeks to eradicate the barriers between therapy and the fear that men experience, and provide useful information for them to receive the help. The purpose of therapy for men, as explained by Dr. Wendy- Lou Greenidge, is to ‘reshape the thought process of Caribbean perspective from stereotyping therapy to seeking professional help’.

Teaming up with Producer Wavy Jones, GyalKapone tackles a topic that many can relate to, and that’s heartbreak.

She shows a side of vulnerability, but the “Bad Gyal” steps out to show us that she’s not to be messed with. One thing you can’t do, is take her Crown. Big up Miss Julene. Wavy Jones on the other hand, provides the perfect sound to compliment GyalKapone’s emotions, and grab you by the collar at first listen. He has been enjoying a run this year with productions for “Ketch Di Pree” by himself, Blvk H3ro, Kione Zaire, and Jeeby Lyricist, “Two Minutes” by Jay EDGE, “Still On The Grind” by Yanah, and even gave us a remix for an episode of “13th Street Quarantine Sessions“.

Renowned Reggae/Dancehall Artist Bugle announced earlier this year that he would be releasing a new album for 2021.
