King Cruff Gets Into A “Blackberry Groove” On Latest Single!


Canada based Rapper King Cruff (f.k.a. Solyd Roy) has been keeping himself busy this year. While his output wasn’t heavy early on, he looks to make a statement with upcoming releases. One of the releases is the new single called, “Blackberry Groove“.

Produced by Teej a.k.a. Teej Made The Beat, King Cruff put together a track will surely light a fire in you to get moving. With a bass heavy production, this will rattle speakers, rooms, and your ear drums. When speaking about the creative process for the track, King Cruff shared, “I always find it interesting when a song has the overall vibe of being happy, but when you really pree the lyrics, there’s a touch of melancholy in there. That’s exactly how Blackberry Groove came about. When me and Smoothe locked into the studio session, I was feeling a bit disconnected from everything around me. So I tapped into that feeling, and wrote lyrics that would uplift myself, and anybody else who has that type of anxiety“. Accompanying the single is a music video directed by Lighter Juice that plays around with a lot of 3D work. Whether performing at the beach or running with the Lions, King Cruff brings new energy and vibes, and wants to get you into a “Blackberry Groove”! Be on the lookout for more from King Cruff!

We Look Back At Songs That Sampled @TootsMaytals In Our Latest Playlist!


On September 11, 2020, the world lost a legend named Toots Hibbert. A pioneer in Jamaican music, he has been heralded near and far as the inventor of Reggae. His contributions to music are vast, and he and The Maytals have inspired generations. Up until news of his failing health, he was working on music and performing. Yesterday we paid tribute to him by highlighting the song that gave Reggae its name. Today, we highlight some of the songs that sampled and covered Toots & The Maytals through our latest Playlist.

From Foxy Brown, to Vanilla Ice, to Tone-Loc, to Lucky Dube, to Romain Virgo, you can relive the moments you’ve heard the classic singles, and learn about the music that paid homage to the classics. Frederick Nathaniel Hibbert paved the way for many, and we respect and honour him over here. Thank you for your life, your music, and your energy Toots Hibbert. Walk good!

.@Protoje Goes In For The 5th Time With His “In Search Of Lost Time” Album


He announced it a few weeks ago, but today is the day Protoje hits the virtual streets with the release of his 5th album, “In Search Of Lost Time“. A follow up to his 2018 Grammy nominated “A Matter Of Time” album, he looks to further expand his movement, and still bring a few new changes to the game. His first release since his partnership with RCA Records and Six Course Music, Protoje shows us that despite a few new changes, his formula is still timeless. With a lineup that includes Popcaan, Koffee, Lila Ike, and Wiz Khalifa, expect nothing but great offerings throughout. Backed by production from iotosh, Winta James, Supa Dups, Di Genius, Ziah, Natural High Music, and The Grei Show, you’ll be swayed by the Riddims as well. Will this be the album that not only gets the Grammy nom, but take home that golden award? Let’s see what happens in 2021 as iotosh and The Grei Show are two producers we’d love to see be a part of a “Grammy Family“.

.@BustaRhymes & Vybz Kartel Trade Bars On “The Don & The Boss”


We don’t think any Rapper loves “Yaad” more than Busta Rhymes, he was just one plane trip away from being born there. Throughout his 30+ year career, Busta Rhymes always found time to big up the home of his parents through switching up to patois in his lyrics, spreading the Jamaican culture in one way or the other, or even visiting and interacting some key folks there. One person he has managed to get a few collabs from is the “World BossVybz Kartel. Today, we check out their latest track together called, “The Don & The Boss“.

Produced by Schife Karbeen, this marks Busta and Kartel’s 3rd official recording together as they drop some big talk over some heavy production. While it’s not very lyrical, you know you’re still getting music from two legends in their respective genres. Now imagine a free Vybz Kartel and an energetic Busta Rhymes in the same studio. The renovation after some massive recordings would be super costly. With Busta Rhymes announcing once again that he will be dropping his “Extinction Level Exit 2” album soon, fans can look forward to that project upon its release. We feel there will be another Vybz Kartel feature on there.

We want all the Nicki Minajs and Megan Thee Stallions to shake it fi di boss by pressing play below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
