We Take A “Quick Throwback” Look Into @KabakaPyramid’s “Empty Souls”!


Before Kabaka Pyramid the Reggae Artist, before “Kontraband” hits the Internet, before “King Kabaka” ran the place, and before “Well Done” rocked the nation, there was the Rapper Keron Salmon a.k.a. “Ronny Pyramid” and he’s featured in our latest “Quick Throwback“! Going back to the year 2008, we check his track “Empty Souls“! Produced by Kevin Coates, Kabaka handles a sample based Production as he delivers some conscious Rap about saving those empty souls out there with the “doctrine from the Lost Papyrus“. The song also paid tribute to the late Rap Brown, a Rapper on the rise who was a part of Kabaka’s Bebble Rock crew, and known in the Jamaican Hip Hop scene.

Since the release of “Empty Souls”, Kabaka merged his Hip Hop influences with his Reggae side and became one of the prominent figures in the “Reggae Revival” movement along with Protoje, Jah 9, Jesse Royal, and many more. He has since released a few projects, and is looking to release his debut Album, “Kontraband” in May 2018. Stay tuned for another quick throwback!

We Take A “Quick Throwback” Look Into @TheKhxos’ “Watch Yuh Frenz”


Before there was Khxos, before “Dopamine“, before “If God Was Like Man“, there was Khaos a.k.a. “King Squady“. In our 3rd post in our “Quick Throwback” series, we go back to the year 2010 to hear Khxos’ “Watch Yuh Frenz” track! Produced by Kris Beatz, Khxos gives us one of his earliest songs with a message as he advises listeners to watch who you affiliate yourself with in life. He warns against fake friends who smile in your face, and stab you in the back when the opportunity arises. Since his 2010 effort, Khxos has made a couple name changes, and has created a buzz for himself thanks to various singles over the years. He is currently working on the follow up to his 2017 debut album, “Dopamine“. Stay tuned for another throwback next week!

We Take A “Quick Throwback” Look Into @BlvkH3ro’s “Live This Life”


Before there was a “Blvk H3ro” and the locks, there was Hervin Bailey Jr., and today we go back in time with our new series, “Quick Throwback“! Looking back into H3ro’s first recorded release, “Live This Life“, this was produced by Leon-Pierre Answer for Mhadboxx Productions and released in 2014 (While it was written well before that). In the song he speaks on being fed up from not always having it, working hard for nothing, dreams, his experience with the 9 to 5 life, and shares encouragement throughout to those who are going through it. For those who are new to the Artist, you can hear him developing his signature sound here. The journey may be rough, but it takes a lot to get where you need to be. Stay tuned for another throwback next week. Check out the track below, and follow us on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Black Superheroes: We Look Back At Burning Spear’s “Great Men”


It’s February 1st, which means we’ve made it to another Black History Month. It is also the start of Reggae Month in Jamaica, and various parts of the world. While we look back at those who fought for the freedom of Black People, and celebrate those who continue the fight, we also look back at those who changed the game with their sound. Today we go back to 1990 with Reggae Icon Burning Spear and his tribute to the Black Superheroes, “Great Men (a.k.a. “Recall Some Great Men)“. Produced by Burning Spear and Nelson Miller, this was released through Mango Records, and featured on Spear’s 1990 Grammy nominated Album “Mek We Dweet“. In the song, Burning Spear roll calls some of the heroes who have contributed to the freedom of Black People worldwide. He starts off with the chorus, “Let’s recall some great men, who been fighting for our rights…“, and mentions the likes of Paul Bogle, Nelson Mandela, Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr.

As we celebrate the month and those before us, let us also recognize those who are making strides and steadily making an impact in the world. Thanks for checking out the Blog, be sure to share with a friend, and follow us on Instagram! Hear the song below.
