We Look Back At @TonyCDKelly’s “Bookshelf Riddim” In Our Throwback Playlist Series!


Recently, Dancehall Artist Konshens dropped a new single titled, “Bad Man“. Off his latest “BadMan vs Nice Guy” project, he recruited the classic “Bookshelf Riddim” for the track and gave listeners a dose of the Konz’ sound. Released in 1998, this was produced by legendary Producer Tony “CD” Kelly and released through his K-Licious label. 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.

We’re highlighting the “Bookshelf Riddim” in the latest Playlist in our #13thStreetThrowback series! It’s time to learn a thing or few. Check it out below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

.@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.

I know many of our readers are familiar with Recording Artist Gyptian, but do you remember his hit, “Hold Yuh“?
