From the poolside as the Mansion with friends, to hitting the road, everyone is having fun while the Gang drop bars on this 300Shotta directed video. For those looking for eye candy, this video has you covered, and for those familiar with HTG we see the return of OG member Bird Don who delivers a few bars. Are we seeing a new HTG project for 2019?

If you’re familiar with the current wave of Jamaican Rappers, you know some have adapted to the “Trap Music” style that started out in Atlanta. While the style has been modified since first coming out, it has gone on to be a pretty trendy style that crossed over to even Dancehall. One of the Atlanta Rappers who’s running with the modern style of Trap Music is Dre 2X with his single, “My Drip“. Produced by Keyraze, Dre sticks to his Atlanta sound as he ensures you won’t catch him slipping when it comes to his everyday lifestyle. This one is for those who stay flexing, getting to the money, and blocking the haters. The “Drip” isn’t for free. With a mixtape on the way, Dre is working on getting his name out there, and being respected with some of the familiar names in ATL. Get familiar with Dre 2X by checking out the track below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
It’s been a while since we’ve featured Jamaican Rapper Gotti OG. With him feeling like a “Wockstar” the last time, he now gears up to release a project filled with some of his best work. Kicking things off till then, he releases the “Nomad Freestyle“. With production by Circa11, Gotti gives listeners that “drip talk” until that mixtape drops. With the visual shot by ShotByDeth, we find Gotti in the Studio putting together the bars in the booth and letting some good weed smoke fill the room. With “Marinas & Moet” floating around as the suggested title of the mixtape, listeners can look forward to more Gotti OG in the coming months.

A dream is just the beginning when you’re on a mission to achieve greatness. Rapper Five Steez knows that too well as he continues his journey in music. With the follow up to his 2016 Mordecai Beats assisted collab project “HeatRockz” on the way, he aims to hold listeners over with the single, “Dreamer“. With Mordecai handling the production, the track features Shaq The MC on the hook as Steez shares bits of his life growing up and pursuing his passion, music. This song is also motivation for those who have dreams to build on them. Not a fan of the delivery of the hook on “Pete Sweat’s” part, but the track is a good listen overall. “Love N Art” is the name of the followup project, and sees a 2019 release. Artwork by ScottyDreamz a.k.a. “Badmind Repellant“. Hold on to your dreams. Check out the track below and share with a friend. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
Dancehall & Reggae Music continue to influence many worldwide whether through the various sounds, lyrics, or even some of the people who create from the genres. Today’s entry is no different as famed Hip Hop Producer 9th Wonder dabbled in a bit of the sounds in his latest compilation album, “Jamla Is The Squad 2“! While the album features a host of tracks for every flavour, it’s the opening track that will surprise and awe many. On “Welcome To JamRoc“, the opening vocals come courtesy of Dancehall Artist Quick Cook, while the following production samples Damian “Junior Gong” Marley’s “Welcome To JamRock“, and Ini Kamoze’s “World A Music“. With 9th tackling the production, Rapsody, Heather Victoria, GQ, Reuben Vincent, and Ian Kelly provide the lyrics that go well with the dope sounds. This isn’t the first time 9th sampled Jamaican music as he borrowed sounds from The Mighty Diamonds on the tracks “L.A.” and “Bad Man” by MURS, and Third World on the track “Let It Go” by Little Brother. Jamla Is The Squad 2 is out now, check out the track below, and share with a friend. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
Born in Saint Vincent & The Grenadines and based in Brooklyn, New York, Recording Artist J Kinggz has been on the grind and making his voice be heard. We’ve featured him some time ago with the single, “Birthday” featuring HighOnFi, but he has since followed up with the Jewelry store anthem, “Patek” with a promise that a project was on the way. That promise was kept as he released the “30 Days EP (The Life Changing Project)“. Featuring four tracks, this came together during a very serious time in his life. With freedom on the line, the best thing he could do during that time was pray and create (and he spoke it in the paperwork for this EP). With Producers such as RazsyBeats, Khalijah, and JSebastian providing the sounds for the lyrics and features from J.R.E. and DTG, J Kinggz gives listeners a bit of what’s to come as he’s currently working on more music including a follow up project. Sometimes when your back is against the wall, you just have to fight back in any way you can. Big up the Vincy Boss. Check out the EP below, and share with a friend.
