If you’re proud to be a Jamaican, wave yuh flag fi dis one! We told you that Recording Artist Sekani is one of the Artists you should keep on your radar last month, and today’s entry is more reason to do so. In celebration of Jamaica’s 56th year of Independence, Sekani released, “876“. With production by Monte Booker, Sekani utilizes a different flow to speak on leaving Jamaica for the US, and share experiences in his life’s journey. Sometimes all we have is faith, and we have to be strong in order to move forward. Sekani is currently working on more music including the follow up to his amazing “Fragmented” project.

This link up was years in the making. While many can reach out to their faves for a collab with ease, it took a while for Recording Artist Alexx A-Game to get that with Canadian star Tory Lanez. After a few tries, the two finally connected and now we have their first track called “Double“. Produced by Vern Hill, A-Game gives us his signature subject matter where he motivates through the lyrics, and adding dreams of living a life greater than ever. Tory comes through reflecting on his come up, and offering some motivation as well. Nah dead poor, haffi go hard and done. Is there only one track together? Stay tuned.

The music doesn’t stop over here, and today’s entry is another to put in your playlists! While Recording Artists Daley and Chance (a.k.a. Kans) of HTG have been dropping music for quite some time, it’s been a while since they had a song for the summer. Enter “Rude“, a song that will have you grooving thanks to its infectious beat produced by Soundheightz, lovely vocals from Rosh Rebel, and of course some great lines from Daley and Chance. For the girls who like to be feisty in the nighttime, for those who wanna have fun in the summertime, and for those who have no problem showing out on the dance floor. Artwork by the super talented Kidding Art! Be on the look out for a new project from the HTG collective soon! Get this banger now on all your favourite streaming outlets.

(The Artists mentioned aren’t ranked in any way here, let’s get that out of the way…)
The “1One King” of Mobay started making a lot of noise late last year, and is no surprise to the lineup this year. With a buzz that quickly spread like wildfire thanks to tracks like “Tuff“, “Things Go Change“, “Feel Like This (Big Toe)“, and “Learn“, he quickly rose up the ranks with some of the best from the west. Don’t believe me? Watch his debut appearance at Reggae Sumfest 2018 below.
First off, Happy 30th Birthday to the “Unruly Boss“, Popcaan! With his album “Forever” blessing the Internet tomorrow, we’re showing love to a few of his International collaborations over the years in our latest Playlist titled “Popcaan Airways“. Popcaan has managed to build a name for himself during his role as a member of Vybz Kartel’s “Portmore Empire“, and has brought his “Unruly” brand to places many aspire to be. From Jamaica to Toronto to London to Tokyo to Lagos, follow the “Unruly” tracks. Check out the Playlist below, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

It’s dope when you can find the perfect Producer for your tracks. Finding one to score your Film, is something special. Recently Rapper/Chef Dylan Golden released his Short Film, “Half Dead“, which takes you through the journey of a young man of color who is exasperated with the onslaughts of current social injustices we are facing in America and around the world. Filmed in Brooklyn, scoring for this Film was done Dylan (who also directed it), and Jamaican Producer Kris Karz! While the two are no strangers to collaborating with each other, both have combined their powers to spread the messages injected throughout this piece. The Film was released in conjunction with the Rapper’s new album, “The Revolution Of The Heart“.
