We Look At The Samples Of @Protoje’s “Royalty Free: Side B” (1 Year Anniversary)


Time is moving fast, we were just enjoying the work of art that is “Royalty Free: Side B“. A project made by Recording Artist Protoje, this was released on his Birthday on June 14, 2016 via his Soundcloud page. Featuring 5 tracks and production from Tracker John MD, Winta James, The Drum Keys, 8 Track, and Protoje himself, the project was a hit among fans and newcomers, and had us all wanting the follow up. While we wait on “Royalty Free: Side A”, we look back at the year old project’s samples below. Happy Birthday Protoje and Side B!

Today’s Youth, Tomorrow’s Future: 8 Artists Who Started Out Young


In recognition of May being Child’s Month, 13th Street Promotions is dedicating this Oldies Sunday post to the youth. Many of us can look back at our own childhood when we’d imitate our favourite Artists and pretend we are established stars. What many may or may not know is that some of our favourites started out or even got discovered in their early stages. While we know that acts like the late US Pop Star Michael Jackson and Jamaican Singer Jimmy Tucker started out very young (Jimmy was Jamaica’s 1st Child Prodigy in the 1950s), we’d like to inform you or refresh your memory on some of our Caribbean acts who started out young.

1. Machel Montano (Debut Age: 9) – Too Young To Soca

2. Beenie Man (Debut Age: 8) – Too Fancy

Chip Off The Old Block: Meet The New Kids Of Dancehall x Reggae (Pt. 1)


First they started out as the youth of the Dancehall/Reggae culture, now they’re parents with growing kids. It isn’t unusual for the child of an Entertainer to follow in their parent’s footsteps one way or the other as at times they bring a modern take on their parent’s creations, or create their own lane. Some of the most famous off springs include Stephen, Ziggy, and Damian “Junior Gong” Marley (Sons of Bob Marley), Chino and Di Genius (Sons of Freddie McGregor), Junior Tucker (Son of Jimmy Tucker), Morgan Heritage (Children of Denroy Morgan), Tarrus Riley (Son of Jimmy Riley), Queen Ifrica (Daughter of Derrick Morgan), Protoje (Son of Lorna Bennett), Chronixx (Son of Chronicle) and many more. Today in a few part series, I feature some of the new set of kids on the scene whose parents have covered much ground in their respective careers.
