The eclectic duo of Everaldo Creary and Sheldon Shepherd a.k.a. The No-Maddz are back to deliver the vibes that you can get lost in. While they gave us tracks like “Clarkz Like Dis” and “The N-Maddz In Town” featuring The Wixard to hold us over, they’ve finally released the highly anticipated project, “Heaven On Earth“! Having Walshy Fire at the helm to ensure that the featured 12 tracks are filled with a great dosage of social commentary, The No-Maddz will have you feeling every spirit necessary as you take in their very unique sounds throughout. The project features contributions from Idris Elba, The Wixard, Eriq Sterling, and Shadow Boxxer. Whatever your taste, The No-Maddz will have you covered plus tax!
DJ/Producer Walshy Fire is really busy these days. While he does his time with Major Lazer, he dabbles in a lot of solo work and assisting the careers of many of your faves. This year however, Walshy sets to release his debut solo effort titled, “ABENG“! With days before its release, he unleashes the visual for “Call Me“! Directed by Jocelyn Cooper, this features Afrobeats star Mr. Eazi, and Dancehall Artist Kranium. With their blend of Dancehall and Afrobeats, this one goes out to all the ladies who need a lover to call on. The summer comes early with this collab, and Walshy Fire has a lot more to unleash when “ABENG” drops on June 7.
“Gwaan wid it, gwaan wid it…“
Some call him a “Remix God“, but Tory Lanez continues his run of remixes with the release of his latest mixtape, “International Fargo“! While folks are waiting for “Chixtape 5“, he holds over fans with this one. One track that stands out on this however is his remix of Jamaican Recording Artist on the rise, Koffee’s “Toast“! Produced by Walshy Fire and Izy Beats, Tory borrows the original and adds a few bars on it but left Koffee’s original parts on it. Tory also remixed the massively popular “Touchdown (Remix)” on his project which was originally done by UK Dancehall Artist Stylo G, Rapper Nicki Minaj, and Dancehall Icon Vybz Kartel, and dropped some lines on his remix to Dancehall/Afrobeats Artist Davido’s “Fall“.
With “Toast” cracking the 23 million mark on Youtube and showing up on Jordan Peele’s “US” movie, Koffee has a lot to give thanks for. We need a proper remix of “Toast” out here too featuring some of the established and upcoming names. “International Fargo” is out now, Koffee’s Rapture EP is out now, and you can check out the “Toast (Remix)” below.

Recording Artist Koffee has a lot to be thankful for. With 2018 seeing her being the talk of the town with her smash hit “Toast” (racking up 16 million views on Youtube currently), signing to Columbia Records, touring the world and touching many with her music, her star has yet to shine its brightest. 2019 so far has seen Koffee making more moves, and this next move that we’ll share might see her standing out even more.
Moviegoers worldwide are anticipating the theatrical release of the Horror flick, “Us“. Directed by Comedian/Director Jordan Peele and starring Trinbagonian-American Actor Winston Duke and Kenyan-Mexican Actress Lupita Nyong’o, it has been the talk of Social Media as Peele’s previous film, “Get Out” was a huge success. Yesterday (March 11) at US based Conference and Festival South By Southwest (SXSW), moviegoers were treated to an early screening of the film, and fans of Reggae music were delighted to hear Koffee’s hit single as it has been included in a scene of the film. Produced by Izy Beats and Walshy Fire, the song finds Koffee giving thanks for her many blessings, and encouraging listeners to show gratitude. We featured it as one of our 2018 favourites, and we’ve seen it cross many seas and nations since its release, even scoring a “Song Of The Year” award at the recently held Jamaica Reggae Industry Awards (JaRIA). Koffee is currently gearing up to release her debut EP, “Rapture” on March 14 which also features “Raggamuffin” and “Throne“.
“Us” hits Theatres on March 22, but you can view the trailer below. Check out our post on Koffee’s “Toast” here, and share. Be sure to show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

“Gratitude is a must” is something you say when Koffee’s “Toast” drops, and it’s also another entry in our “2018 Faves” list! A track that held you captive upon listening, this Walshy Fire and Izy Beats produced number is definitely a banger. Check out the track below, and share with a friend.
