Five Steez & Son Raw release new single The General

Ahead of their forthcoming collaborative album, Re:DEFined (dropping 2023), Kingston emcee Five Steez and Montreal producer Son Raw fire off a warning shot with The General, four minutes of blistering bars and uncompromising beats, putting the competition on notice. Building on the momentum of Steez’s stunning, meditative Quietude album with Brazilian producer SonoTWS and his contributions to The Council Of The Gods’ Trilogy (released on Equiknoxx Music), The General is a showdown at high noon in audio form, and a single that’s sure to have playlists and mix shows bumping from Kingston to Canada. Son Raw, meanwhile, is fresh off of opening for noted underground emcee billy woods and interviewing Westside Gunn for The Fader, with The General marking his second lead single with a Council Of The Gods member, after At Will, with Nomad Carlos.

Sim Simma Radio - Jamaican Hip Hop Special w/ Five Steez

I had a great chat with Jr Spesh the other day about Hip Hop in Jamaica and the underground music scenes here in the island. Parts of our discussion made it into this episode of his show, Sim Simma Radio. This Jamaican Hip Hop Special has two halves. The first half features Dancehall/Reggae and Hip Hop songs that highlight the connection between the cultures while the second half features my segment, which comprises clips from our interview as well as music from myself, The Council and other artists such as Equiknoxx.

The Jump Off starts Saturday, April 23!

Finally, we have a night dedicated to Hip Hop and R&B in Kingston. Persons familiar with the Pay Attention event series have always asked when we intend to bring it back. Well, this is not quite Pay Attention, but this will be a night for Hip Hop music held every other Saturday. The first edition will be free so come out and support what we're doing. We're looking to jump start the local Hip Hop scene once more!

Five Steez & SonoTWS on HHDG Media

Thanks to Ian and HHDG Media for having Sono and I on their podcast to discuss Quietude, our inspirations, our local scenes and so much more. We got into the Portuguese pronunciation of Quietude, which should be an interesting lesson for everyone. This was also Sono's first interview in English. This is definitely a must watch for fans of both of us.
