When you see the names SOS Dynamikz and BNJMN, just know that some dope music was made. Having found themselves putting in the work in recent years, they are only climbing up to the ladder of success, and getting all that comes with it. With SOS contributing to Koffee’sGrammy winning “Rapture EP” and Chronixx’s Grammy nominated “Chronology” Album, and BNJMN working with the likes of Future, Stalk Ashley, Dave East and more, they have a lot of tricks up their sleeves. One of the surprises is their work on Hip Hop Artist Smoke DZA’s new project, “A Closed Mouth Don’t Get Fed“.
Contributing to the track, “Dark Web” featuring T-Pain, SOS Dynamikz and BNJMN lend their sounds along with Producer Super Miles to a track that is sure to get a lot of streams. With Smoke DZA’s signature sound and T-Pain’s Auto-tuned delivery, may this track be one of your favourites this year. While major placements are nothing new to the Jamaican Producers, we still congratulate SOS Dynamikz and BNJMN, and we look forward to more.

Christmas may be a lil early this year for some of you, and you’ll be rewarded whether you’ve been naughty or nice. For what has been a long time coming, well known Jamaican Producers SOS Dynamikz and BNJMN have announced their joint Album, “1221“! The duo have worked with each other over the years, but now they combine their sounds and bars for the new project. While the Album art has been revealed (designed by PlateFace), no further details will be out as yet except it will drop on 12/21 at 12:21 AM!
You call them when you want to want a fire beat to go with your lyrics, they help you turn that song into the greatest thing someone has ever heard, they spend hours creating a masterpiece that sounds so good you’re not allowed to add your vocals to it. They are called Beatmakers, Riddim Gods, and more commonly, Producers! Artists can’t live without these people, and at times they don’t get a lot of respect. We at 13th Street Promotions recognize these creatives, and today you’ll get to know 15. Watch this space!
Wavy Jones is a play on the name “Davy Jones”, but he also owns a locker filled with some dope beats! Whether flipping samples on “Locker 1 & 2” or dropping the bass on the Jeeby Lyricist, Blvk H3ro and Kione Zaire featured “100LBS”, Jones is a Producer to check for! Catch him on the next Hidden Fvces or Alpine Compound project!
Whether playing guitar as a part of “Di Vibe” or crafting beats, Kone (Koh Neh) should not be taken lightly. Having produced newcomer Yanah’s single, “The Cycle” and her “Believe In You” Freestyle, delivered the right Riddim with fellow Producer BoomDraw for Blvk H3ro & Leno Banton’s “Sky Dive”, expect to hear more of this creative this year!
He doesn’t call himself a “Riddim God” for nothing. You’ve enjoyed many of his productions that have been complimented with the vocals of Jamar McNaughton, and he has an arsenal ready to go toe to toe with the best of Producers. Having recently released the “Dub Policy EP”, he’s busy preparing his compilation project titled “Top Works Vol. 1” which will feature his ZincFence Records members Ulo, Jane Macgizmo, and Inezi. You can also hear his work on Chronixx’s “Chronology” album. Get familiar!
If you’re familiar with RD Studios, then you know about Director/Video EditorBaker Steez. Known to make your visuals look extra dope, he has been a part of many of your favourite Music Videos and Vlogs! Today, he reveals another side to him as he debuts his single and video for “Kush & Kologne“. With the single produced by BNJMN and the video shot by Krusha, Baker lets the audience in to his world when he’s not making the flashy visuals and hits you with the “sauce“! With cameos from Konshens, Prince Pine, Fat Skull, Jelly Bads, some lovely ladies and more, Steez shows us that this is only the beginning. Bringing the Trap to Jamaica, check out the video and single below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
What happens when the “Unruly Boss” meets Benji? Earlier this year, Popcaan released his “Tight P**** Wine” single but today Producer BNJMN flips it his way on “Poppy“. Here, Popcaan hits the purple stuff and changes tempo while BNJMN parks the Notnice Production aside as he adds his signature sound to the raunchy single. BNJMN has been pretty busy lately as his Production has graced various projects overseas, and we all know what Popcaan’s been up to as of late (lol). An Interesting take on the Dancehall track, and still an enjoyable listen. I’d recommend you play both versions one after the other. Keep an ear out for the “B*mbocl*** Benji” drops later this year but for now, check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Rapper/Producer King BNJMN drops his highly anticipated project, “Since 1993“. Known for some unique productions over the years (and a few verses here and there), this makes it his first EP as an Artist as his previous effort, 2014’s “Wanderlust“ featured his prowess in crafting remixes and original production. With 8 tracks on deck, this features co-production from SOS Dynamikz, Nova, KRS, Oshi, and verses from DutchBoy, Von Alexander, Oshi, SOS Dynamikz, Scolla, Carpe DM, and Maurice Moore.
