Boasting a sound that stands out, and a swagger that lets you know he’s the next Caribbean Superstar, he has been on the radar of some of your favourites in recent times. After a few delays, we finally got a chance to have a convo with the Artist. From his sound, his latest project, to repping T&T, get to know him in our latest Interview below!

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?

Bounce & Turn It To @ValentinoKhan X @DuttyPaul’s “Gold”!


Sean Paul is the man for real. With a career spanning 20 years and over 26 million records sold, it’s crazy how he can still churn out the hits. Today’s selection is no different as he teams up with popular US DJ Valentino Khan for “Gold“! Featuring the “Dutty Yeah” Artist’s Dancehall lyrics over an EDM production, this is for the girls with a body of Gold that’ll make the men do anything to be in their presence and shine with them. Sean has been on a run with the International collaborations, and there will be no stopping this anytime soon! The single is also featured on DJ Collective Major Lazer’s upcoming Apple Music exclusive Documentary “Give Me Future, so that’s a huge look for both Artists.

@KansHTG & @DaleyHTG Are Going Up To The “Chill Suite” On New Single!


Sometimes you need to be on higher ground, an upper level…that’s a possibility today thanks to High Tunez Gang Rappers, Kans and Daley! On “Chill Suite“, they give listeners a laid back vibe as they make the kind of music you just want to relax on a leather couch, have a few close peeps around, and smoke a rare strain of Marijuana to over a TAC4 produced Instrumental. The track also features an appearance from OneLoveTheo, and the talented Monique Kidd (a.k.a. Kidding Art) provides the dope Art for the single as well.

It’s been a while since Kans has dropped any music, we hope this means a new project is on the way. Stay tuned for updates. Daley’s “Frustrated Dreamer” is out now! In the meanwhile…roll up, get comfy, get on a cloud by checking out the track below!
