Usain Bolt continues to take over US Media by stopping by your favourite TV and Radio shows for Interviews. Earlier he stopped by The Ellen Show to have a chat with Host, Ellen Degeneres. Here Bolt spoke on Rio 2016 and comparing the popularity received to previous events, creating Olympic history, adopting a Cheetah, and are Wedding Bells in the air for Bolt? Although Ellen received some backlash for a joke directed at Usain earlier this year, it’s pretty cool that they brought it back up at the end.

Reggae Music has done some amazing things worldwide. From turning frowns upside down, to building lifelong relationships/friendships, to influencing many sub genres, it’s incredible how all this came from the small Caribbean Island called Jamaica. Today, we go back a couple years to an Interview with the Ragga Jungle Artist formerly known as UK Apache, Abdul Wahab Lafta. Firstly, Ragga Jungle is a genre of music that was popular in the 1990s UK which was pioneered by Michael West (Rebel MC, Congo Natty), and was a fusion of Reggae, Dub, Old School Jungle and Dancehall.
Being interviewed on “Living The Life“, a Programme found on the Islam Channel in the UK, Abdul spoke on renewing his Islamic faith, his popularity in the 90s as he had hit singles including “Original Nuttah” with Shy-FX, coming back with new music including his new single “Assalamualaikum“, performing at the 1EID Festival, and closing the show with a live performance of “Assalamualaikum“. Many thanks to Videographer Tyrone Simms who contributed to this post. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

You may have heard of the “Tall Ras“, you may have enjoyed his DJ gigs whether he plays in the club, the street or at your favourite University, but what you know about DJ Ariez? Representing Clarendon, he has been in this DJ game for quite some time. While many may be familiar with his stint as a member of YxB (Youngest x Baddest), he has recently joined the ranks of Chromatic Sound and continues to keep your attention thanks to his collection of Mixtapes and live juggling. We had a chance to holla at the DJ and get his thoughts on his recent signing, thoughts on the Jamaican Entertainment Industry, plans for the future and more.
13thStreetPromotions: Greetings Ariez, pleasure to hear from you. Catch us up on the momentum you’ve been gaining recently. Fans would love to know about your recent game-changer, bring us into your shoes so we can know what the Chromatic experience is firsthand.
Ariez: The momentum since the move is a little overwhelming as it is a huge step up in my DJing career. This new opportunity has granted me more work (more Mixtapes, DJ gigs etc.), access to a larger fan base, and more promotion for my brand. I am ever so grateful for all of this.
13thSP: Let’s not kid ourselves, to work with one of Jamaica’s current top selectors is a huge achievement. Did you always figure it would be Chromatic and if this doesn’t get you into too much trouble, were there any other prospects?
