On Friday we premiered Trini Recording Artist Sarkastik Ambassador’s “SDF” single with the promise that a music video was on the way. That promise was kept as today we present to you the visual! Directed by Rhyjell Ellis of Millennial Studios and shot at the famed Idlewood Bespoke in Port of Spain, Trinidad, Sark gets decked out in a nice suit and is accompanied by the lovely Ashly Suite. From there, Sark can be seen firing off his new single while both talents deliver an aura of flyness in every angle. We get that interactive fashion magazine vibe here, and in Sarkastik style the video ends with him playing Chess with a Rhyjell over a Queen sampled production thanks to Lumonest. If you love the track, remember to stream it now on Apple Music. Check out the video below, and share with a friend. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

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?
The holidays may be over for some, but Jimmy October offers listeners the trip of a lifetime for a low price with his “Vacation EP“.

Featuring contributions from Nico Banks, Tano, Mical Teja and GBM Nutron who help guide you throughout the project, Jimmy wants listeners to have that feeling he gave them upon the release of the title track earlier this year. The project is available on Apple Music for the streamers. Check your Calendar, call in sick, take the rest of the week off, and get some “Vacation” in your life by listening to the EP below.
Sometimes in life, you have to have an extra hustle. For Trini Recording Artists Sarkastik Ambassador and Nick Soul (both from Overdose Music Group), they hustle together as Pool Cleaners in the video for their single, “Coloured Girls (Get It Here)“! Directed by Dominic Koo and Stephen Hadeed Jr. for Hundred Eye Films, the duo try to mix business with pleasure as their client is quite a looker (played by ArtGod Lii). Dropping lyrics in hopes of getting the young lady’s attention, you’ll have to watch to see if one will be lucky enough to win her time. If your pool needs a proper cleaning today, give them a call, and don’t let them see your girl! Check out the video below.
