.@DiEnergist Stans For @TheAlkaline In “Dear Alkaline” Video!


It’s not secret that Kyng Tavii is a huge Alkaline fan, so much so that the Deejay has inspired many of his skits and music. Today’s entry is no different as he was requested to make a video with the “Detta Boss” in mind. In “Dear Alkaline“, Kyng Tavii parodies Rapper Eminem’s infamous track, “Stan“, to share his love for Alkaline. He shared his ups and downs as a fan, even including taking his side when Alkaline beefed with Vybz Kartel and Popcaan. He even mentioned being a proud Stepfather for a child that Alkaline made with his girlfriend.

Which Artist can you say you’re a huge fan of? Who do you stan? Share with us! Good to see Kyng Tavii putting out some comedic content again, as he has been having a rough time in recent months. Let’s hope he keeps it up. Check out the video below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

.@TheAlkaline Gets Recruited For @OGKeithSweat’s “Playing For Keeps” Album!


R&B Veteran Keith Sweat always had a thing for delivering that feel good grown folks music. From his debut decades ago, he has been the one to turn up the heat for the ladies. Recently, he released his 13th studio album, “Playing For Keeps“. While fans know what to expect from the R&B Crooner, his collaboration with Dancehall Artist Alkaline on “Fuego” was a pump on the brakes. The track, which also features Akon and RayFade, boasts some modern production and encourages you to bust a move throughout. Are there hints of Aidonia and Di Genius’Fi Di Jockey” and Donovan Germaine and Dave Kelly’sDickie” Riddims I hear? Alkaline held his own on this track and this a huge look for not only the Dancehall Artist, but for the genre on a whole. Big up the Detta Boss. Keith Sweat’s new album is out now. Check out the track below, and share with a friend. Show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

We Take A “Quick Throwback” Look Into @TheAlkaline’s “Mi Love Woman”!


We took a week off, but today we’re back with another post in our “Quick Throwback” series. Today we go back to the year 2011 with Alkaline’sMi Love Woman“! Borrowing Seanizzle’s “Split Personality Riddim“, the young Alka (who was attending Ardenne High School at the time) expressed his love for the women, and wishes to “touch all the women in the world“. He also shot a video and featured some of his high school peers.

Since the release of “Mi Love Woman”, Alkaline went on to become one of Jamaica’s most controversial Deejays with a cult-like following similar to currently incarcerated Artist, Vybz Kartel. He has enjoyed his fair share of hit songs as well, and has managed to see success despite taking time off, or being involved in conflict. Stay tuned for another quick throwback!

2016 Was Really @TheAlkaline’s Year, You Just Have To Live With That.


Yeah I said it. The Artist born Earlan Bartley has been gaining some traction in Dancehall Music over the years. Despite the controversies, he still manages to have a large fan base, plenty bookings, and hit songs. With his buzz starting around 2013, he first caught the attention of many with his Music Video for “Not A Slack Song”. The video, which scored high on the raunchy scale, was met with a huge backlash online with many writing him off as an Artist who had to use controversy to get a “buss”. The songs that followed further got his name buzzing for better, or for worse.
