While 2018 found Tifa announcing her retirement from music, 2019 will see a delay in that as she continues to drop new music. One of her first offerings for the year is “Come Off A Me Name“! Produced by Vexxx Bad Records and FeddaWeight Productions, Tifa has a problem with those who keep her name in certain gossip and arguments. In her own style however, she kindly tells them to cease all name dropping a.k.a. “Come Offa Mi Name!“. She follows up the single with a video directed by FeddaWeight Films that finds her in colourful backgrounds and various costume changes. Be on the lookout for more T-I-F-A this year! Her name tastes good, don’t? Lol. Check out the video below and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
Where are the Anime lovers? Were you one of those folks who subscribed to CrunchyRoll and tuned in to Cartoon Network’s “Toonami” segment? What were your go to Anime shows? Inspired by the production of the late Japanese Producer Jun Seba a.k.a. “Nujabes“, Jamaican Producer BoomDraw steps out with his first Dancehall Riddim in over 3 years titled, “Jamaican Nujabes“.
A Riddim that you can really deliver some thought provoking lyrics on, BoomDraw shared that the melodies were inspired by the works of Nujabes as he produced the soundtrack for one of his go to Anime shows, “Samurai Champloo“. One of Boomdraw’s favourite Producers, he wanted to channel the Nujabes’ eclectic approach to putting together sounds, and inject into his Dancehall creations. Boomdraw went on to say, “I wanted the track to feel very vibrant and transport the listener into a carefully constructed soundscape that would bring feelings of euphoria. I feel very satisfied with how the final product turned out and I’m very excited to share it with the listeners.” This production is a follow up to BoomDraw’s “Juss Beats” compilation he released in January.
Think you can drop a song on the beat? The Riddim can be found below, and will be available on popular Streaming platforms on Friday February 8.
It’s a new year, and that means a lot more music is coming your way. While we gave you some Artists to check out in Summer 2017, Producers to work with, a list of lovely ladies you need to get familiar with, and a few more Artists to keep on your musical radars, we’re gonna put you on to even more who made moves in 2018 so 2019 could welcome them with open arms.
*These Artists are not ranked in any way, so nuh badda wid di mixup!
Matt Dewar has been working his way up to be heard. Armed with a melodic delivery and ability to adjust no matter the subject matter, Matt could be the next Artist you keep on repeat. Having performed at “New Breath” last year and “Imprint” recently, be sure to catch him performing sometime soon. Get familiar with “I Get Lonely Too” with Sara Bloom, “Slow Whine” with Sara and Jeeby Lyricist, and “We$t Island” below.
Jaz Elise definitely made some noise in 2018. Having made her debut on the scene with the singles “Forever Guide” and “For You“, she has brought a vibe that made everyone rock wherever she goes. From performing at “Jam We A Jam” and being called up by Lila Ike at “Live From KGN”, 2019 will find Jaz everywhere.
This year, Florida based Recording Artist/Event Promoter Daley will be speaking his mind a lot. With just hours before his birthday, he decided to unleash his first offering of 2019 titled, “Jan. 26th“. To hear him tell it, Daley stated that this new year will find him approaching things and people differently. In his music, he also stated that he’ll be sharing more, trying out different styles, and staying sharper with every song. On “Jan. 26th”, he aims to keep going, even when they sleep on his skills or try to be an obstacle in him moving forward. If you’re new here, click here to check out some of his previous offerings.

Happy Friday folks! How about some new music? Today’s new Artist comes from Reggae Royalty, and her name is Shav-A! Daughter of foundation Recording Artist Admiral Tibet, she has been on the grind in recent times including releasing her 2018 single, “I Need You“. To start off 2019, she goes International as she teamed up with French Recording Artist Orti on “I Need You (Remix)“! Produced by Don Charles, Shav-A and Orti give us some Dancehall Pop vibes here, but the track leans towards “AfroDanceMusic” thanks to its multi-genre inspired production. For those who yearn for their special someone to get home, keep this one on repeat till that phone call comes through, or the knock is at your door. “It was fun making “I Need You”, and when I did the remix with Orti, it was a walk in the park and definitely a track that I know you will love,” said an enthused Shav-A when asked about making the remix. “Orti is very talented, and I look forward to working with him again and other International Artists.“
With Shav-A’s sound, she will definitely be an Artist to watch out for this year as she steadily carves her own musical path. Shav-A also has plans to release an EP later this year, and it promises to make a lot of noise on the music scene. Check out the track below, and share with a friend.

Put down your Rollies and Apple Watches, it’s all about the iced out Patek Philippe today. While he has been making some noise in 2018, the Vincy/Brooklyn Recording Artist J Kinggz starts off 2019 with the new video for his buzzing single, “Patek“! Directed by Director EAD/Ingenious Genies, we find the cops keeping tabs on the Artist as he goes about his day reading the papers, staying fresh in designer fits, and getting money. Eventually they make the bold move of invading his space, but end up being on the receiving end of J Kinggz’s sharing of the wealth. The single was released on January 6, 2018, and was featured on Kinggz’s “30 Days EP (The Life Changing Project)” which was released last November. Tell your Jeweler to put the AP down, get yourself a bust down Patek and stay shining on the haters. Be on the look out for more releases this year, including his recent collaboration with Dancehall Artist Flexxx on “Stack This Money” (Prod. by HIRATA).
