This was part of the whole HeatRockz project and as earlier stated during our week-long feature on Steez, it was scheduled for a 30th August release date. True to his word, Five kept his promise. It’s now time for us to return the favor.
After releasing a single every two weeks since July, Kingston, Jamaica-based indie Hip Hop artist Five Steez has unleashed Gods Collide, the final track from HeatRockz, his new five-track EP with producer, Mordecai. The song features Steez alongside long-time collaborators Sosa and Nomad Carlos doing what they do best over a quirky but gritty instrumental.
“Many years in this game, never lost my soul, still after the cash with these bars of gold” – Steez
In the song’s chorus, Five Steez says, “When you see the gods collide, we on a mission”, signifying a purpose behind the collaboration. He explains, “The three of us started out together in a five-member group over a decade ago in high school. Being the ones still doing music, and with Sosa and Carlos based in New York and me based out here, this was sort of a reunion and renewed merger of forces.”
“Mohawks and tight jeans, nah that aint my style, I like my jeans close fitted and my hair cut low. I aint never seen a benz breakdown on the road, no love for our foes…” – Nomad
With the release of this song, HeatRockz is now fully available for free download at http://bit.ly/HeatRockz. The EP is Five Steez’s most aggressive project to date and features ‘true school’ boom-bap Hip Hop bangers to keep heads nodding. “This is my first project without that much of a theme,” the rapper says. “It’s really me having fun, flexing my skill and making high-energy music ideal to play in the car or hear me perform at a show.”
“My minds on the scripture, my bars paint picture. We’ve been through many wars and we always the victors…” – Sosa
Previous Five Steez projects include his three-part Momentum mixtape series with DJ Ready Cee, his 2012 debut album, War for Peace, and his 2014 EP,These Kingston Times.
