True School

from HeatRockz by Five Steez x Mordecai

about

Independent Hip Hop artist Five Steez has released True School, his fourth track this summer, from his new EP, HeatRockz. Over an eerie sample expertly chopped by producer Mordecai, he dances in between the upbeat drums, delivering multiple punches, and pledging allegiance to ‘true school rules’.

“That’s the code we live by,” says Five Steez. “It’s not about old school versus new school. It’s about the true essence of the craft in both.”

Five Steez takes on everyone from so-called lyricists whose pen “went on vacation” to acts who “look and sound alike”. He raps, “I wouldn’t let them round the mic / I spit a few punches and the crowd is hype”. While the verses are laced with clever bravado, he shouts out his listeners in the song’s anthem-like hook.
