The Summer holidays are over, but in this Covid 19 world, everyone’s stuck inside. With Schools and jobs handling (most) things the online way, we’re seeing the “new norm” everyday.

Check out songs that may have missed your radar, or ones that got you hype during the past few months. Don’t forget to share!
Blvk H3ro and Wayne J believed they found a hit when they released their “Young Boss” collab earlier this year. With the track receiving steady airplay and a music video doing well, it was only right they gave the single even more life. With that in mind, they recruited one of Dancehall’s newest wordsmiths in Skillibeng for the “Young Boss (Remix)“!
With Bouchard F. Olivier and Dennis “Greatest” Hamilton’s production still doing its thing here, the trio joined forces to give a song that continues to motivate the youth to get on their grind, and make amazing things happen in the world. With the wordplay from “Mr. Universe“, the melodies from “The Immortal Steppa“, and the energy from the new “Youngest Veteran“, speakers everywhere will be pounding the “Young Boss (Remix)” for a long time to come.
Thanks to our 13th Street Visuals department, we have an exclusive Visualizer for “Young Boss (Remix)”! Check it out below, and share with a friend. Show us some love/follow us on Twitter and Instagram at @13thStreetPromo.

Produced by Kraiggi BadRasta for Bad Art Music, Blvk and Wayne tackle the Riddim like it was the Villain in a Kung Fu flick. Throughout the track, they pay homage to foundation Artists like Super Cat, Sugar Minott, Papa San, and many more.
Wayne J, who has been in the music business since a Toddler, is looking to cover more ground, and shake up the scene as a Teen Recording Artist. Be on the look out for more releases from him. Blvk H3ro on the other hand, is looking to celebrate 1 year since the release of his debut album, “The Immortal Steppa” come February 15, and has plans to release more tracks in the coming weeks. You can also catch him on the road as a part of The Wailers Trio.
Recording Artist Wayne J may have gained a buzz thanks to being one of the brightest youngest Deejays in the past few years, but he also wants to make a positive change in the world. Recently, the Youth Ambassador of the Alligator Head Foundation represented Jamaica as a member of the COP23 Jamaica Delegation at the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) Conference in Bonn, Germany. Invited through a collaboration between the United Nations and Australia’s TBA21 Academy, Wayne J served as the youngest member at the Conference which gathered over 30,000 people from all over the world to share and develop new ideas in order to meet the goals of the Paris Climate Change Agreement.
During his visit and presentation, Wayne J delivered great points and make it clear that in moving forward “Everyone should have an understanding in how to approach the changes in our Planet”. The Ambassador added the importance of Conservation, and encouraged all in attendance to create more strategies in preserving and protecting the Earth. He is set to visit the Fiji Islands and other parts of the World as a part of his duties as Ambassador in the coming weeks.
While Wayne J has released a few singles this year and made a few appearances locally, he is set to continue making his Artist side be heard in 2018 with the singles “TOM” and “Better Days”. He is also working on an EP to drop sometime later next year.
