Billy Boyo’s “One Spliff A Day” Sampled On @IngleWoodSiR’s “D’Evils”


While we’re a lil late on this one (things fly below our radar at times), we’re always on time with the knowledge. Top Dawg Entertainment Recording Artist SiR released his debut album “November” earlier this year. Since its release, the Artist has been on the radar of many, and has been sharing the stage with the likes of Miguel, and his fellow TDE brethren on tour. Recently, he released the visual for his D.K. The Punisher produced single “D’Evils“, and a familiar sound started it off. While the video was shot in Jamaica by Karena Evans, the sample on the track comes from the late Dancehall Artist, Billy Boyo. A former child star, his popular track “One Spliff A Day” can be heard in the beginning, and throughout the song. The track was released in 1981 and produced by Henry “Junjo” Lawes. The track was also sampled on Jamaican Rapper Baker Steez’s “Ba Bye”, and Wiz Khalifa’s 2011 track of the same name.

Billy Boyo, who started his career in the early 80’s, has been considered one of Dancehall’s earliest child stars. While he released two albums, he was known more for his live performances than recordings. His “One Spliff A Day” track was recorded when he was only 10 years old and featured some rather mature lyrics from him. It still remains his most known track. The Artist passed away in the year 2000 due to a Brain Tumor. Check out other Jamaican Artists who started out as child stars here.

Ever met someone who instantly got you in your feelings? Always looking for love in the wrong way? Well maybe you can relate with Jamaican newcomers Djavan and Damani a.k.a. Friday Night Cru as they present to you their debut single and video. Titled “Monáe“, the single was produced by Austin Marc, while the visual was directed by Adam Armond. The single is a blend of Dancehall, Hip Hop, and Pop influences and finds the Artists (including collaborator LEO. who wasn’t present in the video) meeting the girl that embodies the swagger of the beautiful Janelle Monáe (whom the single draws inspiration from), and making moves. To hear them say it, she’s a “lil bad thing“! The new wave of Artists in Jamaica show respect to those before them, but draw influences from every genre out now to make their own unique sound. Friday Night Cru is the duo you should look out for more from. Check out the video below, and follow us on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
