OLDIES SUNDAY: Mr. Pants – The Bam Bam (1992)


Today’s Oldies Sunday selection promises to get you dancing. While dancing music is no stranger to Dancehall, we go back a couple decades to hear a fun one from Dancehall Artist, Mr. Pants. Today’s selection is, “The Bam Bam“! Produced by Elon J Robinson on a variation of the “Bam Bam Riddim“, the track was released through the Top Rank label in 1992. Throughout the song, Mr. Pants paid respect to the “Bam Bam Riddim”, and utilized “Bam Bam” as its punchline. On the song, Mr. Pants utilized a vocal style similar to then top Deejay Tiger, but overall made a catchy song that required you to bust a dance move or few. Everybody love off the “Bam Bam”, and you should too!

Mr. Pants’ “The Bam Bam” enjoyed some success, and was added to his string of releases which included, “Original Stamina”, “New Style”, “50 Pear”, “Rema and Jungle” with Yami Bolo, “Carry It Back”, and “Duck” which was also featured on the “Bam Bam Riddim”, and utilized the same Tiger styled delivery. Mr. Pants hasn’t released many songs since “The Bam Bam”, but fans still check for Mr. Pants’ music every now and then. If you’re familiar with Event Director/Jamaican Social Media Personality @iRealPedro, this is his Dad. Shout out Pedro!

OLDIES SUNDAY: Clint Eastwood X General Saint – Another One Bites The Dust (1981)


Hello everyone! We hope you’re staying safe out there. Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from Dancehall Recording Artists Clint Eastwood and General Saint with their track, “Another One Bites The Dust“! Released in 1981, the track was produced by Henry “Junjo” Lawes, and it was distributed through Greensleeves Records. The duo display great synergy here with their chanting, commanding presence, and wordplay that borrowed from various sayings and proverbs like “Kiss kitty K.Y. you minus plus…“, “You bend down Guava, you lick up syrup“, “Nothing done before its time“, and “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust…“. (Ask your Grandparents for meaning of these sayings. – Editor)

“Another One Bites The Dust”, which was inspired by the track of the same name by British Band Queen, was featured on Clint Eastwood and General Saint’s 1981 album, “Two Bad D.J.“. The track became a memorable one for them, and gives nowadays listeners a feel of a time when Dancehall was growing up. Today’s selection was inspired by news of the Saharan Dust making its way around the world, and Jamaica getting a fair share of it this week. With word that a second wave is near, we urge everyone to stay masked up just the same, and prevent getting sick from it, and also the Coronavirus.

BLACK LIVES STILL MATTER

Vybz Kartel & @BujuBanton Kick Off Their Summer With New Albums!


With the Saharan Dust kicking up the heat all over the world, it’s nothing when it comes to the new releases from Buju Banton and Vybz Kartel that are gonna be scorchers this summer! Once again proving that Prison can’t hold him down, Vybz Kartel emerges with the highly anticipated album, “Of Dons & Divas“, followed by  Buju Banton with his also highly anticipated 11th studio album (12 if you count the rerelease album, “Quick”, and minus the compilations), “Upside Down 2020“.

Loaded with 18 tracks, “Of Dons & Divas” is Vybz Kartel’s 2nd album release this year following the hugely popular, “To: Tanesha“. With features from Lisa Hyper, Teejay, Tommy Lee Sparta, Skillibeng, Lisa Mercedez, Sikka Rhymes, and many more, fans of the “World Boss” can rejoice for new music that will hold them over till more singles drop. While Vybz Kartel maintains a presence through Instagram, only one can wonder how he manages to still release music from Prison after all these years away from physically being in the streets.

With his release from a nearly 10 year bid in 2018, Buju Banton got the fans going with new music. With “Upside Down 2020”, he looks to step back to the forefront of the music culture where he reigned supreme. With 20 tracks onboard, and features from Stefflon Don, John Legend, Pharrell, and Stephen Marley, Buju is in top form, and looks to reintroduce himself to the world in 2020 and beyond. The album packs a flavour for everyone’s tastes, and promises to be a repeater for a long time to come.

With folks calling these albums “Grammy worthy“, we’ll just have to wait and see what the nominations say come later this year. For now, check out the albums below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
