OLDIES SUNDAY: Abijah – Revelation (2001)


Happy Sunday folks! Today we’re keeping the same 2000’s energy on “Oldies Sunday“! Today’s selection comes from Reggae Artist, Abijah with the single, “Revelation“! Produced by Mikey Bennett and released through Matluk Music in 2001, the song finds Abijah showcasing spiritual and prophetic lyrics as he spoke about pending wars and injustice that ravishes the world, and calling on the Lord. A near miss of death and a dream were the inspiration for this song as Abijah was within inches of a stray bullet during a shootout while living in Vineyard Town, St. Andrew.

After the release of “Revelation”, the song quickly became a hit and placed Abijah as an Artist to watch. The song spent 30 weeks on the Jamaican Music Charts, and found him performing in various locations around the world. “Revelation” was also featured on his 2003 “Abijah” album, and various Reggae Compilations shortly after. In the time that followed since the single’s release, Abijah went on to release more music, and perform with the likes of Tevin Campbell, King Yellowman, Nadine Sutherland, and Beenie Man with whom he remixed “Revelation” with. “Relevation” went on to be Abijah’s most recognizable track that he still performs to this day.

We Take A “Quick Throwback” Look At @Protoje’s “The Feeling”!


Happy Throwback Thursday (and Happy World Cup day)! Today we bring to you another in our “Quick Throwback” series. This time around we go back to the year 2005 with the birthday boy Protoje and check out, “The Feeling“! Off his “Lyrical Overdose” mixtape, “Diggy British” hops on a Hip Hop instrumental done by Producer 9th Wonder (off his Black Album Rejects beat tape) to paint the picture of him being a Ganja Smuggler. From enjoying the finest herb, to trafficking it, to getting a rush from dodging the law, Protoje is the one for all your smoking needs.

Since his mixtape, Protoje has worked his way up to releasing his first single “Arguments“, and became one of the prominent figures in the new wave of Reggae artists in recent years. He is set to drop his 4th album at the end of this month. For all the weed smokers and exporters. If you’re loving this post, be sure to check out our previous entries, and stay tuned for our next one. Check out the track, and follow us on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

The song calls for listeners to raise children in the right ways, know GOD, teach them how to be creative and make their world a better place, and help them to spread peace and love into the world.

The single was released on vinyl as a B-side with the main track being “I’m Leaving It Up To You” by Winston Reid & The Zion Boys. Since then, Locksley continued his role as Guitarist for The Cimarons over the years. Gichie has also lent his skills to various Artists including Los Aggrotones.

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!
