If you’re familiar with Hot 97, you’re aware of one of their personalities, DJ Megan Ryte. Recently she announced that she has signed with Interscope Records, and in celebration of her achievement, she released her debut single, “On & On“! Produced by MyBoyRoach, this blends some Caribbean vibes thanks to Tory Lanez, Hood Celebrityy, and the legendary Barrington Levy who appears as a sample. The song, which aims to prep listeners for the Summer fun and love, sampled Levy’s 1994 single “Be Strong“. Produced by Levy and released through the Lipstic Label, “Be Strong” was featured on his 1993 project, “Barrington“, and given the acoustic treatment on his Album “Acousticalevy” which was released in 2015. The song finds Levy trying to do right with his lady, but is bombarded with a lot of trials throughout. The Artwork for “On & On” was also inspired by Levy’s 2008 Album, “Teach The Youth: Barrington Levy & Friends At Joe Gibbs (1980-85)“.
While the temperature’s going up, why not give this tune a listen and get ready for Summer! Listen below, and follow us on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
After adding an extra flame to an already hot Summer with the single, the “Dungeon Dragon” Busta Rhymes finally dropped the highly anticipated visual for his Tory Lanez and Vybz Kartel featured, “Girlfriend“! Directed by Benny Boom and Busta Rhymes, this features a star studded cast from some of the biggest names in Dancehall (Spice, Ninja Man, Foota Hype, Beenie Man, Bounty Killa, Junior Reid, Ravers Clavers) as Busta Rhymes takes a trip to Jamaica with Spliff Star to build a vibe with friends. Lots of phone calls, dancing, and good vibes in this one. Vybz Kartel continues to make moves despite his situation, but imagine if he was free? He would be touring off these guest features. No more talking, it’s time to press play! Watch the video below.
This feels like Vacation music complete with fancy liquor and an exotic location! The last time we heard Rapper Busta Rhymes tap into his Jamaican side was when he collaborated with Spice was on “So Mi Like It (Remix)“, and with Vybz Kartel on “Twerk It (Remix)“. Well today, he teams up again with the latter and Canadian Recording Artist Tory Lanez on “Girlfriend”(Get your copy here). Produced by Rockwilder who tears roofs off with his beats, Busta shows us why his musical career has spanned 20 years as he fires off another banger! Adding Patois to his lyrics, and speaking on bringing his Girlfriend to meet his “Mada down a country“, Busta delivers effortlessly. With the “World Boss” and “Fargo” adding their brand of dopeness to the track, this promises to burn up the airwaves, and flow through every headphone and speaker for the rest of 2017 worldwide! Good to hear Vybz Kartel on another International track despite his current situation, and Tory using his Caribbean influences. This is for all the ladies with the sundresses, the short shorts, the mini skirts, and the leggings on now! Fawud babes! Bounce to this by checking out the track below.

You couldn’t deny the “Controlla” single in 2016. From what started as a leak has become a single that blew up everywhere! Created by Drake (duh!), this was a single to boost the anticipation of his 4th album, “Views”. Of course when it comes to hit songs, there will be remixes, covers, and clones (lol Tyga). While we won’t get into the other story/controversy with “Controlla” (maybe next time, Mr. Vegas), we’ll recruit 4 very popular versions in a Battle Royale! Up for Battle are Drake (Original), Popcaan (Featured on leak/suggested to be a Remix although edited versions created waves), Royal Blu (Who garnered an underground following for his version), and Tory Lanez (Who has recently revealed his own Canadian/Jamaican Dancehall styled version). Voting for the tracks are below, let’s get ready to battle!
