13thStreetPromo: Hey Lila! Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to rock with us. Many have heard you on tracks like Protoje’s “Flight Plans“, and on your debut single, “Biggest Fan“, but who is the Artist named Lila Ike?

Lila Ike: Thanks for having me. To keep it simple and sweet, Lila Iké is a chill person who just enjoys creating and vibing.

13thSP: When did you discover that you could sing, and when did you decide that you want to pursue a music career?

@DaSupremeMusic Steams Up The Green With @TheRealDJCrooks On “How Yuh Mean”!


This goes out to all the Stoners, Steamers, and connoisseurs of the herb! Mandeville based Recording Artist DaSupreme wants us all to burn Babylon, one steam at a time on “How Yuh Mean“! Produced by DJ Crooks, DaSupreme speaks on the meaning of “steaming the herb” to him, being able to take his steam sessions anywhere, and chasing away those with a dirty heart and those who take hard drugs over a wondeful slow paced Reggae production that brings a vibe with every puff. The track appears on his debut self titled EP, and he promises that listeners will fully enjoy what he brings to the Reggae scene as he’ll cover an array of topics backed with amazing production. Check out the track after DaSupreme’s statement.

DaSupreme on “Steaming”

Steaming is the act of consuming Marijuana in one of its purest form; by inhaling the vapor. It has been around for many years but I was only introduced to it about seven years ago when one of my close friends started making steam chalices but in a modern and unique way. I started helping him to sell these creations by posting videos and images of these items on Instagram, and now his creations are used all over the world. Even rising Reggae star Keznamdi posted one of these one-of-a-kind steam chalices that was made specially for him on his social media. Therefore, doing the track “How Yuh Mean” was very organic to me because it has been such an impactful part of my life. As a Rastafarian, the act of steaming for me has a personal spiritual connection with a plant that is sacred to me and therefore is seen as a holy sacrament. Also, the instrumental was provided by frequent collaborator, DJ Crooks, who produced my previous 2 singles, and is also a Rastafarian, which gave the energy of the track a whole different layer. The song was written by me and recorded at my home studio in Manchester, Jamaica, while DJ Crooks mixed and mastered it.
