@PayAttentionJa PROMO: @Sef_Jo Interviews @FiveSteez


“Five Steez will never waste energy disputing the efficacy of Hip-Hop saturation, this apparent rap situation in Jamaica. Calmly (yet very firmly) he’ll say #PAYATTENTION” – SIRvival_ Tactics

Pay Attention - January 31 (Back)
Today, we take on the lyrical emcee, Five Steez
Q: As the opening acts for the 2015 #PayAttention line-up, how exactly does it feel to be hitting the stage after the short break? [July 19th being the last staging of the show]
A: I’m excited to hit the stage. I got to start the year in 2014 and that was an excellent show. So I’m only looking forward to an even better time for myself and the audience.
[Thing is, I know I have to deliver since #PayAttention has been on a short break, and also because many people may be seeing me perform my latest music for the first time.]
