about

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.
