.@StichieDon x @TheRealRampage Team Up On “Unsolved Mysteries”!


“I’m from a place where crimes are never solved…”

The United States has some of the most recognized places in the world, and it is nothing short of experiences whether good or bad. It is home to many Immigrants who share their cultures over the years. Today, Rapper/DJ Stichie Don and legendary Rapper Rampage who share Caribbean backgrounds, speak on where they’re from on “Unsolved Mysteries“. Produced by DubLab Productions, the duo share their experiences over some hard hitting beat that’ll have you thinking you’re on the corner in the 90’s. From hustling days to seeing crime and corruption, they share stories that many others have seen in the places they call home. Stichie Don plans to follow up with an EP titled “Hard Doe Bread” which will be released later this year. Check out the track below, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

We Take A “Quick Throwback” Look Into @IAmEvaFlow’s “Diggy InFlow”


Long before he gave you an “Anthem“, and before he met a “Familiar Stranger“, Recording Artist EvaFlow was giving you bars. Today in a new episode in our “Quick Throwback” series, we go back to the early 2000’s to hear EvaFlow’s “Diggy InFlow“. Borrowing Jay Z’s “H.O.V.A.” instrumental and Protoje giving an intro, EvaFlow gets into his bag to deliver an “overdose” of rhymes straight to your ears. The track could be found on one of his earlier mixtapes titled, “Unsigned Unhyped OnPoint” which finds the artist tackling various Hip Hop beats. Straight outta Santa Cruz with the “Over…diggydose“!

We Take A “Quick Throwback” Look Into @KabakaPyramid’s “Empty Souls”!


Before Kabaka Pyramid the Reggae Artist, before “Kontraband” hits the Internet, before “King Kabaka” ran the place, and before “Well Done” rocked the nation, there was the Rapper Keron Salmon a.k.a. “Ronny Pyramid” and he’s featured in our latest “Quick Throwback“! Going back to the year 2008, we check his track “Empty Souls“! Produced by Kevin Coates, Kabaka handles a sample based Production as he delivers some conscious Rap about saving those empty souls out there with the “doctrine from the Lost Papyrus“. The song also paid tribute to the late Rap Brown, a Rapper on the rise who was a part of Kabaka’s Bebble Rock crew, and known in the Jamaican Hip Hop scene.

Since the release of “Empty Souls”, Kabaka merged his Hip Hop influences with his Reggae side and became one of the prominent figures in the “Reggae Revival” movement along with Protoje, Jah 9, Jesse Royal, and many more. He has since released a few projects, and is looking to release his debut Album, “Kontraband” in May 2018. Stay tuned for another quick throwback!

.@FridayNightCru Have Their Eyes On A lil Bad Ting Like “Monáe” In Debut Video!


Ever met someone who instantly got you in your feelings? Always looking for love in the wrong way? Well maybe you can relate with Jamaican newcomers Djavan and Damani a.k.a. Friday Night Cru as they present to you their debut single and video. Titled “Monáe“, the single was produced by Austin Marc, while the visual was directed by Adam Armond. The single is a blend of Dancehall, Hip Hop, and Pop influences and finds the Artists (including collaborator LEO. who wasn’t present in the video) meeting the girl that embodies the swagger of the beautiful Janelle Monáe (whom the single draws inspiration from), and making moves. To hear them say it, she’s a “lil bad thing“! The new wave of Artists in Jamaica show respect to those before them, but draw influences from every genre out now to make their own unique sound. Friday Night Cru is the duo you should look out for more from. Check out the video below, and follow us on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
