.@DreIslandMusic & @Wyclef Fight For “Justice”!


With all that’s going on in the world, one thing is certain, the Black Man is still fighting the good fight. With more Black Lives Matter marches and protest spawning everyday, they won’t stop until justice is served, and those who were wronged inspire others to do the right thing and honour them. Recording Artists Wyclef Jean and Dre Island join the fight, and protests with good message music. Today, we see the visual for their track, “Justice“!

Directed by Ray Flaco, the video gives us a behind the scenes look at both artists recording “Justice” from their respective locations, and interacting with the people while spreading the message that justice for Black lives needs to happen. They also can be seen jogging while rocking hoodies and watching their backs, which sheds light on the injustice that the late Trayvon Martin faced. Inspired by Wyclef’s racial profiling experience, he is no stranger to calling out on injustice, racism, and wanting equal rights through his music. He recruited Dre Island for the track who is considered one of Jamaica’s most powerful messengers.

BLACK LIVES STILL MATTER!

“Justice” will be available on the deluxe version of Dre Island’s recently released debut album, “Now I Rise“, which will be released later this month. Check out the video below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Mr. Pants – The Bam Bam (1992)


Today’s Oldies Sunday selection promises to get you dancing. While dancing music is no stranger to Dancehall, we go back a couple decades to hear a fun one from Dancehall Artist, Mr. Pants. Today’s selection is, “The Bam Bam“! Produced by Elon J Robinson on a variation of the “Bam Bam Riddim“, the track was released through the Top Rank label in 1992. Throughout the song, Mr. Pants paid respect to the “Bam Bam Riddim”, and utilized “Bam Bam” as its punchline. On the song, Mr. Pants utilized a vocal style similar to then top Deejay Tiger, but overall made a catchy song that required you to bust a dance move or few. Everybody love off the “Bam Bam”, and you should too!

Mr. Pants’ “The Bam Bam” enjoyed some success, and was added to his string of releases which included, “Original Stamina”, “New Style”, “50 Pear”, “Rema and Jungle” with Yami Bolo, “Carry It Back”, and “Duck” which was also featured on the “Bam Bam Riddim”, and utilized the same Tiger styled delivery. Mr. Pants hasn’t released many songs since “The Bam Bam”, but fans still check for Mr. Pants’ music every now and then. If you’re familiar with Event Director/Jamaican Social Media Personality @iRealPedro, this is his Dad. Shout out Pedro!
