2018 Faves: @LenoBanton x @BlvkH3ro x @TheGreiShow – Black Jesus


As 2018 comes to a close, we look back at a few songs that were favourites on the Blog for the year. While we can’t name EVERY one, we’ll give you 10 (in no particular order so hold off on the ego) to reminisce on, or get familiar with.

This next track promotes “All Black Everything“, including the appearance of the Saviour. Recording Artists Leno Banton, Blvk H3ro, and The Grei Show teamed up to speak about “Black Jesus“. Produced by SNR Beats, they each shared their own interpretation of Jesus Christ as they seek to be closer to him, and learn his teachings. This one may have opened up a few conversations. Check out the track below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

.@LenoBanton @BlvkH3ro & @TheGreiShow Follow “Black Jesus” In New Song!


The skin colour has been a topic of discussion among many for centuries but is Jesus Christ black, or white? Many sects of Christianity have pictured the Messiah as a black man complete with an afro, while others recognize a blue eyed, long flowing hair white individual. Today, the trio of Leno Banton, Blvk H3ro, and The Grei Show say “everything black” in their new track, “Black Jesus“. Produced by SNR Beats, the Artists speak on their interpretation of the physical appearance of GOD’s son, and their desire to follow and learn from him. Expect this one to make some noise, stay woke! The debates will continue, but the interpretations are up to you. Artwork by Paige Zxmbie! Check out the track below, and follow us on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

GET TO KNOW: @TheNewWaveJA


For years there have been talks about making venues for fresh young talent to showcase their works in Jamaica. While some have popped up over time, one that is here to stay is held at the Stones Throw Bar every monday by the name of “New Wave”! Located at 1b Mannings Hill Rd. in Kingston, patrons witness displays of Art from some rising stars from 8PM to 12AM. Since its inception in late 2016, it has quickly become the talk of the town, or rather the Island. For those who don’t know, we recently interviewed a couple members behind the “New Wave” team, Lindsey Lodenquai (Head Coordinator), and Davida-Mae Chambers (Social Media Manager/Coordinator). Open your mind for a “New Wave”!

13thStreetPromo: For those who don’t know, what is the origin of New Wave? How did it come about from an idea to an event?
New Wave: New Wave began with Protoje and Jason Panton who envisioned a platform for emerging local talents- once the idea is there, there will always be a way for it to manifest to fruition.
13SP: Describe a standard night at a New Wave event.
NW: VIBESY! It’s always a great feeling being there with persons who are equally enthused about culture and creativity!

13SP: “Jamaica has so much to offer culturally and artistically from this generation”. What’s New Wave’s stance on this comment, and how important is it for events like this to push Jamaica’s talent?
NW: The comment is so true, the talent this generation has is through the roof! Once we have the resources, It is our responsibility to nurture this talent and allow it to flourish.
