.@DuttyPaul’s “Get Busy” Featured In @NetflixFilm, “Along For The Ride”


Have you been watching any good movies lately? Here’s something that appeared on our radar recently. Netflix recently released the film, “Along For The Ride“. Starring Emma Pasarow, Belmont Cameli, and Andie McDowell, this is a Romance/Drama film that finds two Teenagers meeting up nightly to help one experience the fun, carefree teen life before heading off to College. The main reason for this post however, is the fact that a Dancehall classic was featured in the film!

During a few minutes into the film, Sean Paul’s 2002 GRAMMY nominated classic, “Get Busy” was featured. Produced by Steven “Lenky” Marsden on the “Diwali Riddim” (you can find a Playlist dedicated to this Riddim here.), Sean Paul’s “Get Busy” was the summer Dancehall anthem around the world, and was featured on his GRAMMY winning seanmultiplatinum album, “Dutty Rock“. Sean Paul has had some of his music featured in films before, and we highlighted the inclusion of his Sia collaboration “Cheap Thrills” last year in the “Black Widow” film. The “Along For The Ride” film is available for viewing now on Netflix.

Filmmaker @Taqueth Shares The Story Of Jamaican Skater, “EDGE”!


The Skating culture continues to grow in Jamaica, but we need to set up some greater facilities to further nurture it. Recently, Filmmaker Tamara Smith a.k.a. “Taqueth” reached out to Skater James Lawrence a.k.a. “EDGE” to tell his story in a new Short Film! Hailing from Edgecombe Avenue in St. Ann, “EDGE” shares his journey from skating in the gully with visions of pursuing his dream, to getting his first pair of skates, and even a bumpy journey home on skates. While Taqueth captured scenes with EDGE doing tricks, we even hear him deejaying a bit in the end.

EDGE has been moving on up to being a Professional Skater “living life on the edge“, and has even performed at the Jamaican Independence Grand Gala, and represented as a qualifier at the World Skating Championships. He has been holding his own as a Recording Artist (formerly going by the stage name “Edgecombe”) as well having performed at New Wave and a few events at the University of the West Indies (UWI).

Here Are A Few Times The Jamaican Accent Was Terribly Done In Film!


Have you all seen the new season of Luke Cage on Netflix? If you have, you’d notice the Jamaican influence throughout as Luke’s latest antagonist is a Jamaican by the name of “Bushmaster“. While that is pretty cool, many Jamaicans weren’t pleased with the representation of the Island, including the cringe-worthy butchering of the accent. While Writers Sharine and Andrayspoke about it earlier after a discussion with some of the folks behind the series, we’d like to look back at the times our accent was given a huge dose of injustice in Film. If only Hollywood would take the time out to do some proper research, and give natives a chance at properly representing the 876. If you’re interested in the Jamaican music played throughout, check out our latest playlist here. Check out these clips, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Gabourey Sidibe – Tower Heist

If you’ve never seen this Eddie Murphy flick, you probably dodged a bullet. Anyway, while there were some decent scenes in this Comedy, this section is dedicated to Gabourey Sidibe’s role as Jamaican Odessa Montero. Pretty cringe worthy, even though the team behind it praised her role as “Refreshing. Refreshingly bad I must say. Check out the clip.
