We Look Back At @TonyCDKelly’s “Bookshelf Riddim” In Our Throwback Playlist Series!


Recently, Dancehall Artist Konshens dropped a new single titled, “Bad Man“. Off his latest “BadMan vs Nice Guy” project, he recruited the classic “Bookshelf Riddim” for the track and gave listeners a dose of the Konz’ sound. Released in 1998, this was produced by legendary Producer Tony “CD” Kelly and released through his K-Licious label. The Riddim featured the hits, “Bookshelf” by Beenie Man, “Deport Them” by Sean Paul, and was sampled by the likes of Ape Drums, Khalia, and Sneakbo.

We’re highlighting the “Bookshelf Riddim” in the latest Playlist in our #13thStreetThrowback series! It’s time to learn a thing or few. Check it out below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

.@BussPipe Teams Up With Hip Hop Legend @TheRealRedman On “Black Man In America”!


With close to 30 years in, the legendary Rapper Redman is still getting busy with the bars. Today, he feeds the streets with the visual for “Black Man In America“! Reaching for assistance from the Caribbean, he recruited USVI Recording Artist Pressure who adds his unique sound delivery to the Rick Rock produced track. The video, which was directed by Redman himself, sheds light on the things many black people go through in the US, and finds the Gilla House General further sealing his status as a legendary MC.

While Redman has announced his “Muddy Waters, Too” album sometime ago, we hope this track is a sign that it will finally see the light of day. Until then, check out the video below, and share with a friend. Follow us/show us some love on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

.@TootsMaytals’ “Pressure Drop” Featured In New @CoorsLight Commercial!


When you’ve had a long day on the road or at work, there’s nothing better than coming home to relax. We have many ways to relax, we fall asleep immediately on the couch or bed, we take a bath or shower, or we get some wine or beer. In Beer giant Coors’ latest Commercial for their Light Beer, one woman not only cracks a can of Beer to relax, but she takes off her Bra! While many women can relate to letting the Tatas be free, we recognized the Commercial’s soundtrack, “Pressure Drop” by the legendary Toots & The Maytals! Released in 1969, this was produced by Leslie Kong and featured on the Band’s “Monkey Man” (1970) and “From The Roots” (1973) albums. The song helped Toots & The Maytals gain International recognition as it was featured in the classic Film, “The Harder They Come” (which was recently released on Blu-ray).

A song about revenge, but in the form of Karma, “Pressure Drop” became one of Toots & The Maytals’ most memorable singles, and was included in Rolling Stone’s500 Greatest Songs Of All Time” list at #453. It was also featured in the soundtrack for “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas“. Relax and check out the Commercial below, and share with a friend.
