The Riddim featured the hits, “Bookshelf” by Beenie Man, “Deport Them” by Sean Paul, and was sampled by the likes of Ape Drums, Khalia, and Sneakbo.

.@BussPipe Teams Up With Hip Hop Legend @TheRealRedman On “Black Man In America”!


With close to 30 years in, the legendary Rapper Redman is still getting busy with the bars. Today, he feeds the streets with the visual for “Black Man In America“! Reaching for assistance from the Caribbean, he recruited USVI Recording Artist Pressure who adds his unique sound delivery to the Rick Rock produced track. The video, which was directed by Redman himself, sheds light on the things many black people go through in the US, and finds the Gilla House General further sealing his status as a legendary MC.

While Redman has announced his “Muddy Waters, Too” album sometime ago, we hope this track is a sign that it will finally see the light of day. Until then, check out the video below, and share with a friend. Follow us/show us some love on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Jamaican Artist Miguel Bell Debuts Manchester Based, “Shadow Trapped” Comic Series!


As a child growing up in Mandeville, Manchester, Miguel “The Drawtist” Bell was all about Art. His daily sketches caught the eyes of his peers and anyone who’d be interested. From his School days to adult life, he never stopped developing his skills. Recently, he leveled up by releasing his first official Comic Book series titled, “Shadow Trapped“! With a storyline originating in Mandeville, “Shadow Trapped” sheds light on a masked Serial Killer simply named, “Pinocchio Killer” and the various characters involved. Part one of the Comic follows main character Salem Smith and her encounter with the Serial Killer. Highlights of the Comic so far include Miguel’s alma mater, Manchester High School, its neighbouring Mandeville Plaza, and Villa Plaza. The Comic stands out as it’s one of the few in recent years that shares Jamaican origins.

The art style featured throughout the Comic is inspired by Japanese Anime, CreepyPastas, with edgy Manga titles. The Comic Book series is broken up into 3 parts with parts 2 and 3 releasing in the coming months. In the meantime, part 1 is available here, and if you wish to commission Miguel for artwork, you can reach out to him here.

.@TootsMaytals’ “Pressure Drop” Featured In New @CoorsLight Commercial!


When you’ve had a long day on the road or at work, there’s nothing better than coming home to relax. We have many ways to relax, we fall asleep immediately on the couch or bed, we take a bath or shower, or we get some wine or beer. In Beer giant Coors’ latest Commercial for their Light Beer, one woman not only cracks a can of Beer to relax, but she takes off her Bra! While many women can relate to letting the Tatas be free, we recognized the Commercial’s soundtrack, “Pressure Drop” by the legendary Toots & The Maytals! Released in 1969, this was produced by Leslie Kong and featured on the Band’s “Monkey Man” (1970) and “From The Roots” (1973) albums. The song helped Toots & The Maytals gain International recognition as it was featured in the classic Film, “The Harder They Come” (which was recently released on Blu-ray).

A song about revenge, but in the form of Karma, “Pressure Drop” became one of Toots & The Maytals’ most memorable singles, and was included in Rolling Stone’s500 Greatest Songs Of All Time” list at #453. It was also featured in the soundtrack for “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas“. Relax and check out the Commercial below, and share with a friend.
