On Friday we premiered Trini Recording Artist Sarkastik Ambassador’s “SDF” single with the promise that a music video was on the way. That promise was kept as today we present to you the visual! Directed by Rhyjell Ellis of Millennial Studios and shot at the famed Idlewood Bespoke in Port of Spain, Trinidad, Sark gets decked out in a nice suit and is accompanied by the lovely Ashly Suite. From there, Sark can be seen firing off his new single while both talents deliver an aura of flyness in every angle. We get that interactive fashion magazine vibe here, and in Sarkastik style the video ends with him playing Chess with a Rhyjell over a Queen sampled production thanks to Lumonest.

(The Artists mentioned aren’t ranked in any way here, let’s get that out of the way…)
The “1One King” of Mobay started making a lot of noise late last year, and is no surprise to the lineup this year. With a buzz that quickly spread like wildfire thanks to tracks like “Tuff“, “Things Go Change“, “Feel Like This (Big Toe)“, and “Learn“, he quickly rose up the ranks with some of the best from the west. Don’t believe me? Watch his debut appearance at Reggae Sumfest 2018 below.
Relationships aren’t perfect, no matter what Social Media tells you. It takes work, and some reassurance is needed. Today however, we introduce you to a young lady who hails from Trinidad & Tobago by the name of Chinaka. We present to you the visual for her debut single, “Make Me Whole“. Directed by Shannon Britto and shot at Idlewood Bespoke, Chinaka comes through with a smooth R&B track produced by Kevin Beharry that’ll have you wanting to pick up the phone, call that one you love, and try to mend that broken parts of your relationship. We just want to be whole again, and be loved. Keep this Artist on your radar, she’s going places. Check out the track below, and show us some love on Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.
On today’s Oldies Sunday, our selection was made in recognition of the month of May being “Child’s Month“. Heading over to Trinidad & Tobago, we pick a song from the late Garfield Blackman a.k.a. Lord Shorty a.k.a. Ras Shorty I a.k.a. “The Father of Soca” along with The Love Circle Band. Titled “Watch Out My Children“, this was released in 1988 as a part of a live album of the same name, and in 1997. It was later featured as a part of the album “Jamoo Victory“. In the song, Ras Shorty I warns the youth to be alert as to not get caught up in the wrongs of the world, the dangers of drug abuse and it bringing shame and disgrace. A unique part of the song was that some lines were translated into various languages including German and French. The song has been translated in a total of 10 languages. The song, given its message, was later featured as a part of a Drug Abuse Campaign conducted by the United Nations. It was also covered by Jamaican Band, Chalice.
