Underground Kingston MC Five Steez rolls around with the London & Spain-based producer J Sounds on a new track named off the iconic Kingston community, Rae Town. On the song, Five Steez raps circles around the competition over a heavy beat from J Sounds laced with a vocal sample and record scratches.


You listening?

I pick up J Sounds, pass through Rae Town (Uh huh)
Haters watch the paper that I take down (They watching)
I take 'em to their maker when I came round (Yeah)
Thought they staying outta danger at the safehouse
Caught them waiting for a favour or a bail out
Instead of racing to formulate an escape route
I'm amazing with the flavour, I can't say how
Give praises to the saviour, many names now
Blazing and the neighbour say it's way loud
She take in some the vapour from the grey clouds
You can weigh it and the scale ah say it's eight pounds
If you inhaling, it gonna be laying you straight down (Whoo)
People raised in Jamaican, who we make proud
On stages, I'm playing for the paying crowd (Uh)
In the pages, they saying I have a great sound (Yeah)
I'm the greatest, I'm making sure they ain't doubt (There's none)

You hear what I'm doing?

Sword swinger, my style is pure ninja
Dirty like the streets that the whores linger (Grimy)
Beats smack you like a ring across four fingers
Leave you wailing like a ballroom floor singer
I'm way above the competition
Fuck the song submission and the blog I'm pitching (Yeah)
If I'm not a god, it's the wrong religion
Me not on point, that's a contradiction
Ten years strong with the catalogue
Don't mix me up wid dudes that can't rap at all (Please don't)
This rap game about skills like basketball
That's why industry plants try to pass it off
I could never let them get the props
If they on the show, I hafta wreck the spot
Bomb in their mail, obliterate their letter box
I been on the rise, just check my stocks (Just check my stocks)

Yow, yow, yow
In my hands, the mic is a weapon
Strike in a second, take ya life wid a record
Drop gems, top price for the lesson
Give thanks, I have a right to these blessings
Top rated by everybody not hating
Everything I drop, hot, blazing
For the Hip Hop nation, not the pop station
Drums knock ya face in, have your block shaking
J Sounds riddim like a sound system
Dudes claim king but their crown missing
Never me, 'cause I paid the dues
Made major moves, it's all deja vu (Uh huh)
Wherever they at, I'm on a higher tier (Higher tier)
They can't walk in my shoes or try a pair
For yard rap, I been a pioneer
Kingston on my back, our time is here
First Coast, muthafucka, our time is here
First Coast, muthafucka, our time is here
