.@FreddieGibbs & @MadLib Link Up With @AgentSasco On “Bandana”!


“Maad sumn!”

US Rapper Freddie Gibbs has recently teamed up with Producer/Rapper Madlib to release new music. While he has been enjoying a great 2018, Gibbs aims to go harder for the 2019. One of his latest offerings is the tough talking filled, “Bandana“, and it features one of Jamaica’s elite Artists, Agent Sasco a.k.a. Assassin! Sasco is no stranger to performing with Hip Hop acts here as he’s previously worked with Royce Da 5’9″, with Kendrick Lamar on his Grammy winning “To Pimp A Butterfly” album (“The Blacker The Berry“), with Kardinal Offishall on “OG” and “Legacy“, and with Kanye West on the “Yeezus” track “I’m In It“. The collaborative effort on “Bandana” might be a sign that Agent Sasco will be making his presence felt on many more International releases this year along with pushing his “Hope River” album. This isn’t the first time Freddie Gibbs has made the Jamaican link however as he’s collaborated with Popcaan on “Born Bad“, and has travelled to the Island to be a part of a currently untitled Independent Film. Off Gibbs and Madlib’s upcoming album “Bandana“, check out the track below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Pick Up & Run With These Current Dancehall X Soca Hits!


The 2019 Carnival season is officially on its way, and Dancehall artists are teaming up with Soca’s finest stars for various collaborations. It’s definitely a good look for the genres as it gives them more leverage to different markets, even after the seasons is done. Carnival is an International brand with different cities and countries around the world hosting their own. With more interest in the Caribbean culture over the years, it’s a pivotal moment for Dancehall and Soca to make a greater push for the International market with these collaborations. For those unfamiliar, the Jamaican love affair with Soca and Carnival dates back to the 1940s at the University of the West Indies (Mona Campus), and the collaborations over time are just great moments in this ever growing union. With their feel good vibes and ability to bring people together, the collaborations will continue. Today we’re featuring a few of the Dancehall x Soca crossovers that are currently making waves on the scene.

Know Yourself: @Yanah_I Releases New Single, “The Root”!


Closing out Black History Month and Reggae Month, one of our favourite Recording Artists Yanah emerges with new music for 2019! A song that’ll wake you up, she releases “The Root“! Produced by Kone, Yanah celebrates Melanin and the Mother Divine, reminds us all that we are Kings and Queens, and we should always remember where we’re coming from. Know yourself and your history, never let them white wash your brain! Accompanying the new music is a visual brought to us by C. Mills Art with Creative Direction by Kimberley Irons (will update you on that later). With so many having identity crises and those facing terrible situations because of their skin colour, you need songs like this to bring folks together and enforce a new level of consciousness.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Byron Lee & The Dragonaires x Preacher x Admiral Bailey – Dance Hall Soca (1993)


Happy Sunday! Today we celebrate a lil Dancehall, and a lil Soca with our “Oldies Sunday” selection. Going back to the year 1993, we tune in to the late Byron Lee and his Band The Dragonaires’ hit, “Dance Hall Soca“! Featuring Soca Artist Preacher and Dancehall Artist/Football Coach Admiral Bailey, we get the best of both worlds as Dancehall and Soca fans alike joined forces and partied away without care! The track was featured on the Band’s 1993 album of the same name, and it’s a fun song that became one of Byron Lee’s signature hits, and you could say one of the songs that paved the way for many Dancehall/Soca collaborations over the years. With the superb instrumentations from the Band, and Preacher and Bailey’s contributions, you could wave your rag, wine, and do the “Soca Bogle” to your heart’s content.

Gospel Artist @YannickPaul_ Debuts A Song For “Any Situation”.


New York based Gospel Recording Artist Paul Nembhard a.k.a. Yannick Paul has experienced a lot in his life, and he has a story to tell the world. Formerly a Dancehall Artist who performed under the names “Don Snypa” and “Dynasty General“, his music was an outlet for the many trials he and many others have faced. Influenced by Vybz Kartel, he released tracks like “God Nah Sleep” and “Who I Am“, and even performed in a Bronx based group named “Muzik Dynasty“.

The years that followed since his stint as a Dancehall Artist found him dealing with various personal issues, and through some soul searching he gave his life to the Lord. Now deep in his Christian faith, the love of music never left his side and in 2015 he released an EP as a member of the Agape Brothers titled “Organic Theology“.

Nearly 4 years since giving his life to the Lord, Yannick Paul wants to spread the Gospel with his debut single, “Any Situation“. Produced by StrateG Music Group, Yannick sits with the listener and lets them know that no matter the current situation they’re facing, GOD will come through when you believe and wait on Him. The song also encourages the listener to know their worth and don’t succumb to the temptations out there. He also shares pieces of his journey, and expresses how thankful he is to have made the changes in his life. A song that is needed, and is definitely one to share with powerful messages embedded. Be on the look out for more from Yannick Paul!
