(Us) My crew win the races like Usain in lane six Like butane, I spray dis, spew flames and blaze spliffs The results of listening Wu Tang in grade six My group hang in basements, new brand arrangements Still come through with Cubans and Haitians (sak pase) Expect to get a hassle through immigration Not a threat, we just do entertainment Business with Muslims and Jews with the bacon (uh) My life like a movie in the making (yeah) Tell them play my music on the station (play dis) I'm in the studio creating The best at this, there's truly no debating (yes) Uh Yeah (Yeah) (Yes) Verse 2: Whoever I connect wit, I'm guaranteed to wreck shit Stages, I blessed it, the club swinging like my necklace Wack rappers find the exit When I hear their weak tracks, I get restless Their music bad for you like asbestos Gotta stay healthy like my last breakfast Still try to be wealthy in a black Lexus Accountants to help me with the tax measures Get money, but not at the cost of the music I stay cooking up with special sauces and juices Rappers want features, I toss them the deuces These dudes that think that they bosses is losers I'm talking to you, cuz, it's so disgusting Where's the chrome you bussing? I'm sure you wasn't You holding nothing, you only bluffing We all know you fronting, no discussion (What?) No discussion We all know you fronting, no discussion

We can never know We can never know Chorus: We can never know Where the day gon take us, how the night gon go We can never know When your time going come but you reap what you sow We can never know When you die, what really happens to your soul? We can never know So I give thanks every day that I walk through the door Verse 1: I remember I got the call from Mordecai Seven thirty two, number unrecognized Cruising in the ride, Kera at my side The man was telling me France Nooks died Just last week, we was performing live At the Scantana show, we took the mic We rocked with Equiknoxx, and said yo, Nooks is nice You did your thing, represented First Coast We had more in store, what hurt most Is the way you passed, I know the pain will last I remember your gems and your music A soldier for Pay Attention, the movement Turned master from sensible student Wisdom the OGs mentor the youth wid You was on the Billboard without popular fame Gone too soon, so we honour your name Chorus Verse 2: I feel I'm used to death, I don't fear it Lost four uncles, all grandparents Many relatives, friends, even this week A high school friend dead from heart disease That's the second one recently, you know how it feel to me Time is limited, treasure every moment Live good, for your wrongs, get atonement Deal with challenges like chess opponents Seize the present opportunity for my community It's what my ancestors put in me I'm here to leave a legacy of goodwill And speak life 'cause no man should kill Life transforms but cannot be replaced You ain't tough without the cannon in your waist Reacting slow when my hands up in your face You ain't a killer or a gangsta, you a fake Verse 3: Time will tell where I find myself Wanted heaven, thought life was hell But I'm happier now, I can rise as well Aiming to tip any size the scale Still focused on life's true meaning Finding love, it's like a new feeling What was the likelihood of us two meeting? You tired of your dude, just leave him People and things change so quickly So I show love to whoever that is wit me Niggaz I thought was the future now is history And it worse when dem leave wife and pickney I seen the hearse and the sight of it sick mi I pree a verse and I write to uplift wi So live in love and praise the most high And give thanks for the days that go by Chorus

about

Kingston, Jamaica underground Hip Hop staple Five Steez has teamed up with French beatmaker J-Zen for the new EP Pantone. The project features four songs that will get heads nodding, having fun and even reflecting on life and death, all within 15 minutes.

"J-Zen and I did these songs between late 2017 and early 2018. I'm excited about this project because it's the same true school boom bap Hip Hop people know me for, but it's a very different groove, sound and texture from anything I've ever released." - Five Steez
