Five Steez x Mordecai – HeatRockz [EP]

“HeatRockz” is Five Steez’s first collaborative EP with producer, Mordecai. It is his 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.” The EP’s opening track, “Dirty Couch”, is a dusty-sounding “bona fide headnodder” with Steez taunting inferior rappers. He follows with “Encore”, an energetic banger with which you can see him rocking his audience in a packed venue. The HeatRockz continue with Mic to the Check on which Steez fits in pocket on an uptempo beat with a catchy hook and his signature wit. The fourth cut is “True School” which features him pledging allegiance to Hip Hop’s core principles and ethics over an eerie sampled chopped by Mordecai. The project closes with “Gods Collide”, a reunion track with longtime collaborators Sosa and Nomad Carlos over a quirky but gritty instrumental. HeatRockz by Five Steez x Mordecai

Five Steez – True School [Audio x Download]

Independent Hip Hop artist Five Steez has released “True School”, his fourth track this summer, from his new EP, “HeatRockz”. Over an eerie sample expertly chopped by producer Mordecai, he dances in between the upbeat drums, delivering multiple punches, and pledging allegiance to “true school rules”. “That’s the code we live by”, says Five Steez. “It’s not about old school versus new school. It’s about the true essence of the craft in both.” Five Steez takes on everyone from so-called lyricists whose pen “went on vacation” to acts who “look and sound alike”. He raps, “I wouldn’t let them round the mic / I spit a few punches and the crowd is hype”. While the verses are laced with clever bravado, he shouts out his listeners in the song’s anthem-like hook.

Five Steez – Mic To The Check [Audio x Download]

Five Steez and beatsmith Mordecai deliver another banger from Steez’ upcoming “HeatRockz” EP. Stream or download “Mic To The Check” below. When the drums drop, Five Steez announces his arrival and demonstrates his gift of gab. “It’s Five in the flesh / coming live and direct,” he rhymes in the chorus, later commanding, “hands in the air from the right to the left”. In the second verse, Five Steez addresses “rappers spitting foolishness” and boasts, “Don’t ask about my catalogue, Google it”. HeatRockz by Five Steez
