Marcus Garvey Gets Sampled On @KanyeWest @KidCudi’s “KIDS SEE GHOSTS”!


As promised, Kanye West kicked off a weekly roll out of albums released under the G.O.O.D Music label. This week, he released the long awaited collaborative album, “KIDS SEE GHOSTS” featuring Recording Artist Kid Cudi. While the album featured 7 tracks, there was one that caught many off guard. On track 4 titled “Freeee” a.k.a. “Ghost Town Pt. 2“, it starts off with the words of the late Jamaican Scholar, Activist, Teacher, and National Hero, The Rt. Excellent Marcus Mosiah Garvey. Produced by Kanye, vocals from a speech and Interview Garvey was a part of in the early 1920’s about his trial and persecution for Mail Fraud was used in the first few seconds of the track.

Marcus Garvey’s influence and his teachings continue to reach many all over the world. If you wish to know more about this great man, check this out. Last year in celebration of his birthday, we featured a few songs that paid tribute to Marcus Garvey, you can check them out here. Know yourself. Kanye West and Kid Cudi’s album is now available online. Check out the track and speech below, and follow us on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

We Feature The New Kids Of Reggae/Dancehall In Our New Playlist!


In previous articles, we’ve highlighted Child Stars and dedications to the youth, but in closing of May being Child’s Month, we’d like to remix a series. A couple years ago, we highlighted the offspring of some famous names in Reggae/Dancehall in a 5 part series called “Chip Off The Old Block“. Today, we want to offer a playlist featuring some of the offspring that made their names known within the past few years. We urge you to not only play the songs, but support them as they continue their journey of carrying on the family name/reputation, or carve their own paths. Fi di yute dem! Check out the articles and playlist below, and follow us 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“!

Stay tuned for another quick throwback!

Billy Boyo’s “One Spliff A Day” Sampled On @IngleWoodSiR’s “D’Evils”


While we’re a lil late on this one (things fly below our radar at times), we’re always on time with the knowledge. Top Dawg Entertainment Recording Artist SiR released his debut album “November” earlier this year. Since its release, the Artist has been on the radar of many, and has been sharing the stage with the likes of Miguel, and his fellow TDE brethren on tour. Recently, he released the visual for his D.K. The Punisher produced single “D’Evils“, and a familiar sound started it off. While the video was shot in Jamaica by Karena Evans, the sample on the track comes from the late Dancehall Artist, Billy Boyo. A former child star, his popular track “One Spliff A Day” can be heard in the beginning, and throughout the song. The track was released in 1981 and produced by Henry “Junjo” Lawes. The track was also sampled on Jamaican Rapper Baker Steez’s “Ba Bye”, and Wiz Khalifa’s 2011 track of the same name.

Billy Boyo, who started his career in the early 80’s, has been considered one of Dancehall’s earliest child stars. While he released two albums, he was known more for his live performances than recordings. His “One Spliff A Day” track was recorded when he was only 10 years old and featured some rather mature lyrics from him. It still remains his most known track. The Artist passed away in the year 2000 due to a Brain Tumor. Check out other Jamaican Artists who started out as child stars here.
