With a follow up to his 2016 “Savage” on the way, Florida based Rapper Daley started making some noise earlier this year with a couple freestyles, and unveiling Artwork. He now adds a Music Video to the list. Joining forces with Rapper/Poet Trill Soulutionary, they get away from it all on “For The Dreamers“. Directed by Kiel Hoilett a.k.a. Kilo, the duo meditate, reason with each other, and spit thoughts throughout the visual. Put yourself in their place and think how the world can be such a crazy place that you need to head to the hills, streams and valleys to clear your head and dream of better days. Organize your mind by watching the video below! Keep dreaming…
You call them when you want to want a fire beat to go with your lyrics, they help you turn that song into the greatest thing someone has ever heard, they spend hours creating a masterpiece that sounds so good you’re not allowed to add your vocals to it. They are called Beatmakers, Riddim Gods, and more commonly, Producers! Artists can’t live without these people, and at times they don’t get a lot of respect. We at 13th Street Promotions recognize these creatives, and today you’ll get to know 15. Watch this space!
*These Producers are not ranked in any way.
1. Wavy Jones
Wavy Jones is a play on the name “Davy Jones”, but he also owns a locker filled with some dope beats! Whether flipping samples on “Locker 1 & 2” or dropping the bass on the Jeeby Lyricist, Blvk H3ro and Kione Zaire featured “100LBS”, Jones is a Producer to check for! Catch him on the next Hidden Fvces or Alpine Compound project!
Whether playing guitar as a part of “Di Vibe” or crafting beats, Kone (Koh Neh) should not be taken lightly. Having produced newcomer Yanah’s single, “The Cycle” and her “Believe In You” Freestyle, delivered the right Riddim with fellow Producer BoomDraw for Blvk H3ro & Leno Banton’s “Sky Dive”, expect to hear more of this creative this year!
He doesn’t call himself a “Riddim God” for nothing. You’ve enjoyed many of his productions that have been complimented with the vocals of Jamar McNaughton, and he has an arsenal ready to go toe to toe with the best of Producers. Having recently released the “Dub Policy EP”, he’s busy preparing his compilation project titled “Top Works Vol. 1” which will feature his ZincFence Records members Ulo, Jane Macgizmo, and Inezi. You can also hear his work on Chronixx’s “Chronology” album. Get familiar!
Whether you address him as “Nino” or “El Nino“, Rapper Slim I.D. aims to take over with his wave of Trap Music this Summer! While putting the final touches on his upcoming “Nino” Mixtape, he fires off a warning with “Homage“. Produced by NineSix, Slim lets listeners in on what’s to come on his new project. Still hustling like he has one more job to do before hitting the jackpot, you have to respect his ambition. Those who doubted will be inspired, and those who wrote him off with regret it. Previously featured in the “15 Artists To Watch Out For In Summer 2017” post, Slim I.D’s “Nino” project will see the light later this year. Check out the track below.
Entertaining listeners is something DJ Scribz enjoys doing. While he has been making sure people are enjoying his mixes, he manages to stay consistent with his special brand of mixes.

You can also use this mix to kick off a night of blowing that pay cheque, or pump you up for the work week. Over here at 13th Street Promotions, we’re gonna enjoy you get a great Mixtape everytime from our Mixtape Movements section!

Recently, a few pictures made its way onto the Internet hinting DJ Khaled’s upcoming collaboration with Reggae Legend, Sizzla Kalonji! With it possibly appearing on the DJ’s forthcoming “Grateful” Album, fans were overjoyed as Khaled has shown love to the Artist via his various Social Media outlets. While it’s no strange thing here, Sizzla has been a go to collaborator for years in Hip Hop along with a couple of his fellow peers, Junior Reid and Barrington Levy. He also enjoyed his share of hit songs being sampled in many Rap singles. Sizzla was also a signee of Rap Mogul Dame Dash’s now defunct “Dame Dash Music Group”. Below we feature 5 of Sizzla’s Hip Hop collaborations.
1. Shottas – Juelz Santana ft. Sizzla & Cam’Ron (2005)
2. Give Me A Try (Remix) – Sizzla ft. Rihanna (2003)
Despite missing out last week’s “Dreamer Fridayz” entry, Daley is back on track this week. This time around he shows love to fellow Jamaican Rapper Chase Soundz on his upcoming “Yaadman Hiatus EP“, and together they cause a “Problem“! The track was produced by Thundaa, and features both Artists, who happen to be fans of each other’s work, in a sparring match of lyrics and flows. Daley is still working on his “Frustrated Dreamer” project which is expected to see a Summer 2017 release. Do we have a problem? Check out the track below!
