Dancehall & Reggae Music continue to influence many worldwide whether through the various sounds, lyrics, or even some of the people who create from the genres. Today’s entry is no different as famed Hip Hop Producer 9th Wonder dabbled in a bit of the sounds in his latest compilation album, “Jamla Is The Squad 2“! While the album features a host of tracks for every flavour, it’s the opening track that will surprise and awe many. On “Welcome To JamRoc“, the opening vocals come courtesy of Dancehall Artist Quick Cook, while the following production samples Damian “Junior Gong” Marley’s “Welcome To JamRock“, and Ini Kamoze’s “World A Music“. With 9th tackling the production, Rapsody, Heather Victoria, GQ, Reuben Vincent, and Ian Kelly provide the lyrics that go well with the dope sounds. This isn’t the first time 9th sampled Jamaican music as he borrowed sounds from The Mighty Diamonds on the tracks “L.A.” and “Bad Man” by MURS, and Third World on the track “Let It Go” by Little Brother. Jamla Is The Squad 2 is out now, check out the track below, and share with a friend. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
Born in Saint Vincent & The Grenadines and based in Brooklyn, New York, Recording Artist J Kinggz has been on the grind and making his voice be heard. We’ve featured him some time ago with the single, “Birthday” featuring HighOnFi, but he has since followed up with the Jewelry store anthem, “Patek” with a promise that a project was on the way. That promise was kept as he released the “30 Days EP (The Life Changing Project)“. Featuring four tracks, this came together during a very serious time in his life. With freedom on the line, the best thing he could do during that time was pray and create (and he spoke it in the paperwork for this EP). With Producers such as RazsyBeats, Khalijah, and JSebastian providing the sounds for the lyrics and features from J.R.E. and DTG, J Kinggz gives listeners a bit of what’s to come as he’s currently working on more music including a follow up project. Sometimes when your back is against the wall, you just have to fight back in any way you can. Big up the Vincy Boss. Check out the EP below, and share with a friend.

Nothing like getting new music, and we’re glad to deliver it to you! Today’s new entry comes from UK Recording Artist Biz as she teams up with Jamaican Producer Wavy Jones for her new single, “No Fuss“. Here she gives listeners a lil bit of Hip Hop and R&B as she speaks on being a “Ride or die Chick“, not bringing drama, and being a one of a kind girl for someone who will treat her right. She lets us in on some of her experiences in a relationship, and lets that person know that if he doesn’t act right, she’ll move on. If she’s the one you need, you have to let her know. Jones’ sampled based production on this track fits the lyrics well and definitely adds to the replay value. Imagine a video for this track. Artwork provided by the talented Romario Lynch a.k.a. “SeenByLynch“. Be on the look out for a new project for Wavy Jones in the coming months. The track is now available on all streaming platforms so get yourself a copy. Otherwise, check out the track below and share with a friend. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
Bless up Jamaica and New York City. Today we’re witnessing a historic moment thanks to Chris Matic, a Jamaican born Rapper who resides in Brooklyn, New York! Having been on the grind for some time, his day finally arrived once he signed with IB Music, a division of Invisible Bully which was started by Damion “D-Roc” Butler and Diddy. Since his signing, Chris Matic has been showing up at various outlets dropping bar after bar, and impressing many. Today is no different however as he checks in with the legendary DJ Funk Flex at Hot 97, and he delivered! Over Drake’s “Duppy Freestyle” and Mobb Deep’s “Quiet Storm” Instrumentals, he lets us know he’s not in the 360 deal life, rolling with D-Roc and Diddy, and showcasing why he’s one of the nicest out there. Of course he had let the patois sneak in and represent as always. Get familiar with him if you haven’t yet. Check out the video below, and share with a friend.

If you’re a Hip Hop head, then you’re familiar with Chicago Rapper Lupe Fiasco. He has collaborated with the likes of Kanye West and Jay Z, and gave us hits like “Superstar“, “Kick, Push“, and “The Show Goes On“. Recently, he released his 7th studio album, “DROGAS WAVE” with enough bars to keep fans happy till the next project. What made this project more interesting, is Lupe tapping into some Jamaican influences here. On “Gold vs the Right Things to do“, he utilizes patois throughout, and although it may make some of us cringe, he drops some serious lines in this one to make up for it (he did a better job than these Actors in this article). On “Kingdom” he teams up with another potent lyricist, Damian “Junior Gong” Marley as they unleash more consciousness into the world. For those familiar with Lupe, this project is a great listen and has garnered positive reviews so far. If you’re new here and into lyrics, you can’t go wrong with Lupe.
