RESPECT JAMAICA! (Inspired By @VerzuzOnline’s “Bounty Killa Vs Beenie Man” Battle)


As I watched last night’s Verzuz Battle between Dancehall LEGENDS Bounty Killa and Beenie Man, I just felt inspired to write something. This may not be in the written style that grace popular International Media outlets, but sometimes you just have to write what you feel. – Wade Haye

Last night, nearly 500,000 people witnessed the clash of two giants in Jamaica’s music culture on Instagram. With close to 4 million views shared across other Social Media platforms, the beauty of it is that it was hosted in Jamaica, held in a Jamaican Studio, and through Jamaican Internet, and it was almost perfect! If you grew up during the beginning or peak of their careers, you know that Bounty and Beenie clashing a nuh normal ting. With Beenie Man celebrating over 40 years as a performer with Bounty Killa having over 30, a 20 song battle wouldn’t do this event justice. They further proved that when they kicked off a couple medleys throughout the over 2 hour long event. For those who are unaware (it’s ok), Hip Hop Producer/Mogul Swizz Beatz and Hip Hop Producer Timbaland kicked off their “Verzuz” battle series a few weeks ago. With the Covid 19 pandemic causing many to stay inside and be entertained by online offerings, Verzuz was made to highlight classic Artists, Producers, and Songwriters along with their timeless catalogues. So far, they’ve presented battles between Swizz Beatz and Timbaland, The-Dream and Sean Garrett, Neyo and Johnta Austin, Erykah Badu and Jill Scott, Lil Jon and T-Pain and others to the delight of many worldwide. Last night’s matchup however, was one that educated many, showcased classic Riddims and tracks, put Jamaica on the map even more, shook viewers with the BLACK GREEN AND GOLD, and will be an unforgettable experience for others.

Verzuz: Jamaica Edition started off in an authentic style with DJs Kurt Riley and Richie Dwarming” up the patrons with various Dancehall/Reggae mixes. Then the floor was open for two former foes/brothers for life to go toe to toe with the hits. In true and proper Jamaican manner, we started with the National Anthem. The stories behind most tracks before letting them loose was a joy to listen to. For those who lived through the 90s, you know Dancehall/Hip Hop collabs were very welcomed, and International collabs were (still is) a big thing for the culture. Beenie and Bounty kicked off a few of them, and the chat section was thoroughly entertained and educated. Then came the Police who caused the event to pause for a few minutes. While I believe it was a part of the act to bring some authenticity to the event (Police will show up to your event, only for it to end shortly after due to noise complaints or other reasons), Beenie’s humorous and somewhat stern approach to the Officers during the event was heavily cheered on.

Javada Jamaica Phenomenal Music Dancehall Reggae Blog 13thStreetPromotions 13thStreetPromo Caribbean

.@JavadaMusic Is Set To Make “Phenomenal” Moves!


Jamaican Recording Artist Javada is a diamond in the rough. An underrated Artist to many, he has been making progress in his career despite not topping the charts. Having given us tracks like “Wake Up Beside You“, “Seh Di Weerd and “Gal Dem Ready” with Konshens, and “Ooh Na Na Na” with Christopher Martin, he never backs down when it’s time to deliver. He even gave us projects like his “Rude and Smooth” Mixtape in 2014, and his “Feel Brand New” EP in 2018. Though he made International moves as he appeared on Latin Pop King Enrique Iglesias’ Gold/Latin Diamond selling single, “Duele El Corazón” in 2016, had his “Over and Over” single become a Gold selling remix thanks to German Rapper Bonez MC in 2019, linked up with Nigerian/DMV Recording Artist Tobby Drillz on “Give It To Me” in April, and teamed up with Austrian DJs Wax Wreckaz for “Bun Dung” in the same month, he’s looking to do even more. With a new decade to conquer, he sets the tone with his upcoming single, “Phenomenal“!

Teaming up with Jamar Oshane Roberts and Sean McCurbin a.k.a. Cymatic Audio, Javada targets the ladies with sensual lyrics, and a smooth delivery over a Dancehall Pop production that screams International ready. Showcasing his singjay style and giving the ladies a lot of energy, he looks forward to “Phenomenal” being kept on repeat this summer on the playlists, and during the late night activities. With more music to follow, Javada looks to keep his name buzzing even more for years to come, and dominate on the scene. “Phenomenal” is set to be released in June, but we have an exclusive preview of the track for you to hear.
