.@JimmyOctober Deals With The Loss Of His Father “Over The Noise”


It’s never easy losing a loved one. We all have our own ways of dealing with loss in efforts to be stronger over time. Today we feature a song from T&T’s own Jimmy October as he shares his emotions. Titled “Over The Noise“, he lets it all out over the piano keys about the loss of his Father. Recorded a couple years ago, he contemplated releasing this, but finally made up his mind to present it to the world unmixed and unmastered. With assistance from Singer Kalpee, this will touch many who can relate. Light a candle for a loved one that you miss, and send a prayer to them as they sleep in peace.

13thStreetPromotions: Jimmy, thanks for having a chat with us at 13thStreetPromotions.com. We’ve finally made that Jamaica/Trinidad link up. For starters, tell us about the Artist named Jimmy October?

Jimmy October: The name was inspired by a couple things. Well firstly I was born on October 9 1994, and I’m pretty connected to the fact that I’m a Libra and the idea of not searching for perfection but for balance. That explains the October. The main reason for the Jimmy is the movie 8 Mile. Eminem played the character Jimmy “B-Rabbit” Smith Jr. The role of that character really resonated with me because I felt like he was a very regular guy, living a regular life but he had passion. He had raw talent and was determined to be something more. I’m also that regular guy that believes he can use his talents to be something more no matter how much people say its not possible. No matter how much people laughed at the fact that I was crazy for starting to follow this particular dream because they thought it made no sense. I’m Jimmy October.

13thSP: We’ve been hearing your music for quite a while, but tell us how did you get your start? What made you want to pursue a music career?

JO: As basic as this might sound. I’ve loved music from the jump and I’ve only grown to love more.

13thSP: You rap, deejay, sing, produce, and those have caught the attention of many out there. Who have been some of your influences when it comes to creating music?

15 Artists To Watch Out For In Summer 2017!


It’s another Summer, and it’s time for the Pool Parties, new fashion, new destinations, and for those in School, freedom from the books for a while. For others, it’s a time to discover new music, and we’ll gladly help you in discovering new Artists. We advise you to get proper headphones, great speakers, money for tickets and audio purchases, and the mindset to fully enjoy the music. Here are 15 Artists to watch out for this Summer!

*These Artists are not ranked in any way

1. Khxos

With a few years in the game, Florida based Recording Artist Khxos (formerly Khaos) has been releasing Dancehall tunes and gaining attention thanks to Social Media. He received a buzz that started to bubble in Summer 2015 thanks to the release of “One Touch”. Summer 2016 kept the ball rolling with his debut EP “Deception”, but collaborations with Andrew Trabass, Chargii, and Lincoln 3Dot helped to keep it blazing for the rest of the year. Early 2017 however saw his name change, and the release of “So Loud” and “BOMM” propelled him as one to watch this Summer as he prepares to release his debut Album, “Dopamine”.

2. Royal Blu

They don’t call him “El Fuego” for nothing, his music keeps you on your toes, and his lyrics hit like the hot oil from frying Plantains. This Artist has been quietly making his way onto the scene and has made appearances from “New Wave” to “Live From Kingston: Class 2016”, to “Imprint” to Protoje’s “For The Culture” event. His collaborations with the likes of Lila Ike, Runkus, and Leno Banton have received numerous hits on Soundcloud, and he hits the road (or Air) with Runkus as a part of the “Class Is In” European Tour and a stop at the German Summerjam this Summer!
