If you’re proud to be a Jamaican, wave yuh flag fi dis one! We told you that Recording Artist Sekani is one of the Artists you should keep on your radar last month, and today’s entry is more reason to do so. In celebration of Jamaica’s 56th year of Independence, Sekani released, “876“. With production by Monte Booker, Sekani utilizes a different flow to speak on leaving Jamaica for the US, and share experiences in his life’s journey. Sometimes all we have is faith, and we have to be strong in order to move forward. Sekani is currently working on more music including the follow up to his amazing “Fragmented” project.

(The Artists mentioned aren’t ranked in any way here, let’s get that out of the way…)
The “1One King” of Mobay started making a lot of noise late last year, and is no surprise to the lineup this year. With a buzz that quickly spread like wildfire thanks to tracks like “Tuff“, “Things Go Change“, “Feel Like This (Big Toe)“, and “Learn“, he quickly rose up the ranks with some of the best from the west. Don’t believe me? Watch his debut appearance at Reggae Sumfest 2018 below.
It’s dope when you can find the perfect Producer for your tracks. Finding one to score your Film, is something special. Recently Rapper/Chef Dylan Golden released his Short Film, “Half Dead“, which takes you through the journey of a young man of color who is exasperated with the onslaughts of current social injustices we are facing in America and around the world. Filmed in Brooklyn, scoring for this Film was done Dylan (who also directed it), and Jamaican Producer Kris Karz! While the two are no strangers to collaborating with each other, both have combined their powers to spread the messages injected throughout this piece. The Film was released in conjunction with the Rapper’s new album, “The Revolution Of The Heart“.

Montego Bay based DJ Jer keeps the crowd moving with his selections, but his remixes are something special. By now you should be familiar with Drake’s new “Scorpion” album, and his track “In My Feelings“. While the track has sparked a trending “In My Feelings Challenge“, Jer joins in on the fun with Dancehall Artist Vybz Kartel with a “In My Feelings” remix! Lifting Kartel’s “Do It” track, we get a dose of what the “World Boss” would sound like on a Drake track. Imagine if Kartel made it to Drake single. Keke, do you love Addi?

“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.
