Jamaica, Land We Love. Many outsiders know of the Resorts, the Beaches, living the “Island Life“, but there’s another side to our beautiful Island that is at times exposed. Following the death of a close friend, Recording Artist and Montego Bay, St. James resident Jeeby Lyricist released the visuals for “Mobaby“. Featuring Miss Jamaica Universe 2016 Isabel Dalley, and various clips highlighting Montego Bay in recent times, the visual sheds a light on both the beautiful and ugly sides of this location as it’s a haven for Tourists and great Businesses, but a place where Crime has been a huge thorn in its side. Delivered over a beat remake of Jidenna’s “Bambi” from The Kash, this has been a favourite of ours for the month and the song can be seen on the same level as Protoje’s “BLXXD MONEY”. Would be dope to get more verses from Artists representing other locations (Artists where are you?). R.I.P. Jayson Barnes and all the fallen Mobabies. Watch the video below.
Florida/Montego Bay based Rapper Daley is currently working on a follow up to his 2016 project, “Savage“! While he has made appearances since his last release, and has kept busy co-hosting his “Vent Open Mic” series Daley felt it was time to get the ball rolling on another project titled, “Frustrated Dreamer“. To prepare listeners this time around, Daley has decided to start the “Dreamer Fridayz (or #DreamerFridayz)” series complete with freestyles and album cuts weekly.
On week 1, Daley revealed the Kokabzd designed album cover, and has released a single off the album titled, “Delirium“. Featuring a smooth sample based Production from Bobby Williams, Daley urges listeners to “Open up your mind more“. Showcasing a couple different flows, Daley takes listeners into his world as he chases his dreams, makes observations in the game, and shows that the words he pens in his notebook are “For the culture“. Sometimes conscious, sometimes savage, the Rapper promises to be even more aggressive on his next project and future “Dreamer Fridayz” offerings will shock you. “Frustrated Dreamer” sees a Summer 2017 release. Check out the track below.
After getting the ladies in the right mood with the energetic “Your Body” off his “LOVE & Good Vibes” project, Memphis based Recording Artist Theo follows up with “Body Unique“! With OGE Beats providing the Dancehall/Pop Production and additional vocals by Cheynoo, Theo is calling all the ladies with the sexy bodies who command the attention and snatch the hearts of every guy. With a Production you can rock to, this is one of those “Grab a girl and slow wine with” tunes that will creep over to the Summertime. The single is now available on iTunes, and all other Digital Streaming Services. Be sure to follow “OneLoveTheo” on Spotify as he has a few surprises in store over there in the coming weeks. She seh a long time she want a Jamaican, and she can’t wait to visit the Caribbeans. Check out the track below!
Rapper Slim I.D. may be a lil late to kicking off his 2017, but when it comes to the money, he’s earlier than the sun! Inspired by Rappers Future & Rick Ross’ “That’s A Check“, he stepped in the booth and added his bars for his own remix! With Phantom handling the Production, Slim goes in like the Tax Man when that payment is overdue! If you owe Slim I.D. money, I’d advise you to get every sent together and pay him in Cash, Cheque, Paypal, Western Union, and any other way you get that money sent off! Stay tuned as Slim I.D. is working on his follow up to “The Initiative” (Available on iTunes and Spotify). Check out the track below!
2017 seems to be the year where the Mobay sound will grace the Internet again! With Daley recently hinting at an upcoming project in our latest Interview, to Slim I.D. and MoulaUE prepping new music, the High Tunez Gang joins in the fun! With Singer Rosh delivering amazing notes, Daley, Chance, & Kyng team up for the sensual, “Appreciation“!

We have featured his work, recently reviewed his “Savage” EP and now it’s time to personally introduce you to the Hip Hop enthusiast that goes by the name, Daley. Some of you may have recently known him as Tazz or even Dalai of the “High Tunez Gang” and “KMT“, but he is the one same original Montego Bay native now making a name for himself in South Florida. Now on the verge of releasing a followup to his 2016 project, let’s kick things into a higher gear with our first Interview with an Artist living completely outside the Jamaican space!
13thStreetPromotions: For starters, tell us a little about yourself. A grand introduction is always necessary to get our viewers super-hyped.
13thSP: You’ve been on the music scene for quite a while as you’ve started out with a group called the “High Tunez Gang”, is that correct? Tell us a bit more about how you got your start on the scene.
