2018 Predictions!

The Champagne is all done, the party favors are boxed up, and many are still hungover, but welcome to 2018! While we look forward to another year filled with new developments, we have a few predictions we want to put out there. We aren’t Nostradamus, but let’s see if the stars are aligned in Entertainment.

1. Chronixx wins the “Best Reggae Album” Grammy

With the 60th Grammy Awards coming up later this month, many Artists and viewers will be tuned in to see if their favourite will be carrying home a shiny prize. In Reggae music, we predict that the “Dread & Terrible” Artist, Chronixx, will carry home the award for “Best Reggae Album” for his project “Chronology”. This win will see him beating out fellow nominees like Damian Marley, Morgan’s Heritage, J Boog, and Common Kings! This would be a huge look for the Artist, and give the album even more attention. Maybe a Grammy tour as well? Let’s see.

2. Vybz Kartel will be successful in his Appeal hearing. 

Since 2011, we’ve heard the phrase “Free Kartel!”, and it will not stop anytime soon. Vybz Kartel has more than a cult following, and it doesn’t help when he can still release songs while incarcerated. It was reported over the past couple years that his Defense team will file an appeal in the conviction of Kartel and 3 of his associates who are all serving life sentences. Despite numerous delays, it was reported that his hearing will be held in July 2018. If he wins, things might be shaken up a bit. Free Ninja Man too.

We Look At @ItsJahmiel Vs @VershonMusic In “13th Street Rants” Debut!

13th Street Rants” is a new series on 13th Street Promotions (hopefully we have more after this) where we share commentary on various topics in Entertainment. In our debut episode, we speak on the current war of words with Dancehall Artists Jahmiel and Vershon. Is it necessary? We tend to think that beef is needed at all times, but that shouldn’t be the case. We think both Artists are amazing in their respective careers, but this beef? I don’t know how they’ll benefit in the long run. DJ Fusion takes the wheel in the debut clip below. Listen and share!

2016 Was Really @TheAlkaline’s Year, You Just Have To Live With That.

Yeah I said it. The Artist born Earlan Bartley has been gaining some traction in Dancehall Music over the years. Despite the controversies, he still manages to have a large fan base, plenty bookings, and hit songs. With his buzz starting around 2013, he first caught the attention of many with his Music Video for “Not A Slack Song”. The video, which scored high on the raunchy scale, was met with a huge backlash online with many writing him off as an Artist who had to use controversy to get a “buss”. The songs that followed further got his name buzzing for better, or for worse.

Will Clashing Still Be A Thing In 2017?

If you’re a fan of Dancehall Music, then you’re familiar with the art of Clashing. Seen as a way to bring out the best or worst lyrically in an Artist, we get to witness this event when tensions rise and the #1 spot in Dancehall is at a free for all stage. Over the years, the clashing season usually starts around late Summer/early Autumn where Artists call out each other in hopes of them sharing the stage and facing off at “The Greatest One Night Show On Earth” a.k.a. Sting, the yearly Dancehall event held on Boxing Day in Jamaica. Some of the greatest clashes included Ninja Man vs Shabba Ranks, Beenie Man vs Bounty Killa, and Vybz Kartel vs Mavado. While many never make it to Sting, they still manage to help put an upcoming or established Artist on the radar, or give an Artist their walking papers. In recent years, clashing has been on a decline. With the recent announcement of a no show for Sting 2016, the question I ask is, “Will Clashing Still Be A Thing In 2017?”.

@IAmRaytid Defends TGE Label In New Single

As the heat of the “Clash Season” rises, it seems that tempers are flaring at the True Gift Entertainment (TGE) Recording Studio as Dancehall Artist Raytid releases a diss track aimed at Dancehall Artist, Versi.

The song, which is titled Burial Ground, is an answer to a track done by Versi which took shots at Recording Artist Demarco and his ‘Bun Up Gang’ (TGE), the camp to which Raytid is signed. This new ‘beef’ came about since Demarco recorded the controversial track We Run the World, to the disapproval of Versi as he replied on a Riddim produced by Jay Crazie, former Studio Engineer at TGE.

In Dead Already, Versi threw jabs at the “Bun Up Gang” boss for referring to him as ‘dead’ on TGE’s controversial web series, “Talk Yuh Mind” and counteracts Demarco’s We Run the World. While the drama brewing may seen frivolous in some circles, Raytid’s Burial Ground, which was produced by Social Yaad Records, fires lyrical shots at Versi, calling him a ‘dirty child’ and a Groupie. The song came as a surprise to many as Raytid has always been making party singles, and no “Clash Ready” tunes. Fans of the two await further developments as tensions rise.
