Take A Trip Into @DiEnergist’s Mind On “Psycho”!


It’s been a while since we’ve seen and heard Kyng Tavii. While he has since done away with Comedy and dabbled a little in music, he was M.I.A. for a bit. Having been one of the early adopters of the Social Media Comedy lane in Jamaica, a week wouldn’t pass where he didn’t have a crazy skit posted online (like this one). Today, he gets on his music ting with the visual for, “Psycho (stream here)“! Handling the directorial duties with creative direction by Noel Smith, viewers are taken inside Kyng Tavii’s mind as he lets us know some of the things that pop up in there, and what he has been going through. While he’s living in his thoughts, he shares the ups and downs of fame, failing friends, and being his own friend. Take care of your Mental Health! We hope this is the start of more content from him.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Born Jamericans – Yardcore (1996)


On Oldies Sunday, we highlight and celebrate those who have made their contributions into pushing Jamaica’s music culture worldwide over the decades, whether they’re natives of the Island or not. Today’s selection comes from the Hip Hop/Reggae/Dancehall duo, Born Jamericans (Edley Shine and Notch) with their single, “Yardcore“! Produced by Rahiem and Notch, this was released in 1996 through the Delicious Vinyl label. On the track, despite being born in the US to Jamaican Immigrants, they both celebrate their Caribbean heritage and share how it has influenced their life and music. With that said, they came crashing in from the “heart of Babylon” with their “Yardcore” slang and style of music to rock the world.

“Yardcore” was the first single off their 2nd and final studio album of the same name which was released in 1997. Since its release it has enjoyed significant airplay, enjoying a top ten entry on the U.S. Rap charts, and entering the U.S. R&B charts in the top 50 slot. The single was also remixed a few times including one from top Jamaican Producer Dave Kelly. While they followed up with more music, the duo parted ways in 1999. Both being solo acts, they went on to release their own type of music as Notch dabbled in Reggaeton, and Edley kept it Hip Hop and Dancehall (and even tried his hand in acting). They got back together as a duo in 2015, and have been performing their classics wherever they can.

Having played a part in bringing the Caribbean influences to mainstream Hip Hop, Born Jamericans will always be remembered for “Yardcore”! Check out the selection below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

“Maad sumn!”

US Rapper Freddie Gibbs has recently teamed up with Producer/Rapper Madlib to release new music. While he has been enjoying a great 2018, Gibbs aims to go harder for the 2019. One of his latest offerings is the tough talking filled, “Bandana“, and it features one of Jamaica’s elite Artists, Agent Sasco a.k.a. Assassin! Sasco is no stranger to performing with Hip Hop acts here as he’s previously worked with Royce Da 5’9″, with Kendrick Lamar on his Grammy winning “To Pimp A Butterfly” album (“The Blacker The Berry“), with Kardinal Offishall on “OG” and “Legacy“, and with Kanye West on the “Yeezus” track “I’m In It“. The collaborative effort on “Bandana” might be a sign that Agent Sasco will be making his presence felt on many more International releases this year along with pushing his “Hope River” album. This isn’t the first time Freddie Gibbs has made the Jamaican link however as he’s collaborated with Popcaan on “Born Bad“, and has travelled to the Island to be a part of a currently untitled Independent Film.
