.@DreIslandMusic & @Wyclef Fight For “Justice”!


With all that’s going on in the world, one thing is certain, the Black Man is still fighting the good fight. With more Black Lives Matter marches and protest spawning everyday, they won’t stop until justice is served, and those who were wronged inspire others to do the right thing and honour them. Recording Artists Wyclef Jean and Dre Island join the fight, and protests with good message music. Today, we see the visual for their track, “Justice“!

Directed by Ray Flaco, the video gives us a behind the scenes look at both artists recording “Justice” from their respective locations, and interacting with the people while spreading the message that justice for Black lives needs to happen. They also can be seen jogging while rocking hoodies and watching their backs, which sheds light on the injustice that the late Trayvon Martin faced. Inspired by Wyclef’s racial profiling experience, he is no stranger to calling out on injustice, racism, and wanting equal rights through his music. He recruited Dre Island for the track who is considered one of Jamaica’s most powerful messengers.

BLACK LIVES STILL MATTER!

“Justice” will be available on the deluxe version of Dre Island’s recently released debut album, “Now I Rise“, which will be released later this month. Check out the video below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Vybz Kartel & @BujuBanton Kick Off Their Summer With New Albums!


With the Saharan Dust kicking up the heat all over the world, it’s nothing when it comes to the new releases from Buju Banton and Vybz Kartel that are gonna be scorchers this summer! Once again proving that Prison can’t hold him down, Vybz Kartel emerges with the highly anticipated album, “Of Dons & Divas“, followed by  Buju Banton with his also highly anticipated 11th studio album (12 if you count the rerelease album, “Quick”, and minus the compilations), “Upside Down 2020“.

Loaded with 18 tracks, “Of Dons & Divas” is Vybz Kartel’s 2nd album release this year following the hugely popular, “To: Tanesha“. With features from Lisa Hyper, Teejay, Tommy Lee Sparta, Skillibeng, Lisa Mercedez, Sikka Rhymes, and many more, fans of the “World Boss” can rejoice for new music that will hold them over till more singles drop. While Vybz Kartel maintains a presence through Instagram, only one can wonder how he manages to still release music from Prison after all these years away from physically being in the streets.

With his release from a nearly 10 year bid in 2018, Buju Banton got the fans going with new music. With “Upside Down 2020”, he looks to step back to the forefront of the music culture where he reigned supreme. With 20 tracks onboard, and features from Stefflon Don, John Legend, Pharrell, and Stephen Marley, Buju is in top form, and looks to reintroduce himself to the world in 2020 and beyond. The album packs a flavour for everyone’s tastes, and promises to be a repeater for a long time to come.

With folks calling these albums “Grammy worthy“, we’ll just have to wait and see what the nominations say come later this year. For now, check out the albums below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
