about

HeatRockz 2.0 boasts boom bap bangers, made of moody, dusty and atmospheric beats, paired with top-tier rhymes marked by precision and ease. The EP begins with Five Steez establishing himself on the opening song as Commander in Chief before making it clear he's The Vanguard. He takes over on A.B.S. and lets everyone know who is king on U.G.K., the EP's final track.

“The process for HeatRockz 2.0 was the same as before,” says Mordecai. “I cooked up a batch of the hottest beats and sent them over for Steez to do his thing.”

Five Steez says, “The main difference in the approach this time was that I locked in at home because of this pandemic and did most of this project in one weekend.”
