.@UsainBolt Links Up With @SHODesusAndMero For An Interview!


One of the world’s greatest athletes, Jamaica’s own legend Usain Bolt stopped by (virtually) the “Desus And Mero” show recently. Hosted by Desus Nice and The Kid Mero, Bolt speaks about his new role as a father, being a Jamaican Icon, being naturally gifted but putting in the work to further develop his talents, experiences as a athlete representing the Caribbean, his thoughts on the Bounty Killa & Beenie Man Verzuz event, his role on Apple TV+’sGreatness Code“, working on music and more.

For those unfamiliar with Desus Nice And The Kid Mero, they are from The Bronx, NY, share Jamaican and Dominican Republic backgrounds respectively, have gained popularity on Social Media for years before starting the “Desus Vs Mero” and “Bodega Boys” Podcasts, and having the “Desus And Mero” late night series on Viceland and now Showtime. We featured them a few years ago as Desus makes many references to Jamaica on the “Bodega Boys” Podcast (Check it out here). Anything is possible, don’t take limits!

13thStreetPromo: Thanks for taking the time out to have a quick chat with 13thStreetPromotions.com. We’ve heard and enjoyed the tracks, but for those who don’t know, who is the Singer named Jaz Elise?

Jaz Elise: I am just a girl who decided to take a leap of faith less than a year ago to do music for a living. I love singing, wholeheartedly. It brings me a joy, and I’ve found that the best way I can reach people is through my voice. I am fully born and raised in Jamaica also.

13thSP: When did you realize you could have a career in music? How did you get your start?

JE: I have always been singing (church, school etc), but never really took it seriously. I was mainly empowered to only do a 9-5. My exposure to the arts however empowered me to really see a career being a Recording Artist. I really got the calling and courage to do it as a career a few years ago and that’s when I started going to studio, and did a few singing gigs all while still being in school. Encouragement from my friends and family as well as a personal conviction really pushed me to decide to do it as a career though. I would say when I released my first single (“For You“) in November 2018 that’s when I decided to go full force into it.

OLDIES SUNDAY: @BujuOfficial – Me Too Bad (2005)


If you’ve been unaware, Reggae/Dancehall Icon Buju Banton is finally a free man! Having done his time in Federal Prison, Friday December 7 became a day to remember when word got out that he would be making his triumphant return to Jamaica, and return to freedom. Today on Oldies Sunday, we salute the Gargamel’s  return with one of our favourites, “Me Too Bad” (o/c “Too Bad)! Produced by Leftside & Esco on the “Throwback Giggy Riddim“, Buju effortlessly rides the riddim as he flexes his rather uncanny ability to drive the ladies crazy and requesting his presence ever so often. With lyrics like “Outta road, nuff gyal a mad ova me“, and “Mi Babymada seh mi bad, mi too bad…“, you know Buju has a way with the ladies. The single was released through VP Records and quickly became a hot track in the streets. It was also featured on his 2006 album, “Too Bad“, and became his first #1 hit in years. With Gargamel’s newfound freedom, many fans are awaiting his return to the booth to unleash the tracks that will have the place in a frenzy, but for now we wish he takes as much time to rejuvenate himself and reconnect with society and loved ones. If you want to check out more Buju content, check out our Buju Samples article we did on his Birthday, the throwback “Love Sponge” for the lovers, and Lila Ike wanting to work with Buju as he’s an inspiration in an Interview with us.

As promised, Kanye West kicked off a weekly roll out of albums released under the G.O.O.D Music label. This week, he released the long awaited collaborative album, “KIDS SEE GHOSTS” featuring Recording Artist Kid Cudi. While the album featured 7 tracks, there was one that caught many off guard. On track 4 titled “Freeee” a.k.a. “Ghost Town Pt. 2“, it starts off with the words of the late Jamaican Scholar, Activist, Teacher, and National Hero, The Rt. Excellent Marcus Mosiah Garvey. Produced by Kanye, vocals from a speech and Interview Garvey was a part of in the early 1920’s about his trial and persecution for Mail Fraud was used in the first few seconds of the track.

Marcus Garvey’s influence and his teachings continue to reach many all over the world. If you wish to know more about this great man, check this out.
