After debuting their first single a year ago, the Super group “The Council” finally release their 2nd single, “The Final Countdown“. Produced by Inztinkz who also raps on it, The Sickest Drama and Nomad Carlos each take turns putting pressure on the beat and their competition and further making their presence felt on the scene. As they welcome another year, it’s time to celebrate like a Times Square new year, a Jamaican new year, or a Chinese new year! Off their “Nothing Else Matters” project that has yet to see a release date, tune in for the bars. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Jamaican Rapper Five Steez started off his “HeatRockz” season with biweekly premieres, and today the wait is over as he and Producer Mordecai Beats finally unleash their “HeatRockz EP“! Featuring 5 tracks, Steez aims to promote the “True School“, and bring that Boom Bap Rap that hasn’t been very present in the Hip Hop scene. With Rappers Nomad Carlos and Sosa being the only featured guests, Steez delivers bars upon bars over Mordecai’s vast Production and proves there’s no slowing down soon. The project will hold fans over until The Council, the super group that consists of Five Steez, The Sickest Drama, Inztinkz, and Nomad Carlos, complete their debut project. Artwork by Scotty Dreamz!

What do you get when you enlist Jamaican Rappers Five Steez, Nomad Carlos, The Sickest Drama with Inztinkz who boasts Production and Rapping skills? The super group called “The Council” of course! Since their debut single “Council Arts” in 2015, listeners have been eager to hear what these Artists can do over more production on a mixtape, EP, or album format. Though seasoned members in the “First Coast” movement, The Council aims to bring more listeners to where Hip Hop came from, and of course show them that they’re nice with the flow when they form like Voltron.

1. I just finished listening to soundcloud.com/proeraradio/jo… and heard that Joey Bada$$ was in the Island recently. Did any of you meet with him? That would certainly have been a “PRO” move by The Council.
The Wutang Clan is for the children, while Five Steez, Inztinkz, Nomad Carlos, and The Sickest Drama who make up “The Council” are for the Hip Hop heads. Today 3/4 of the group hop on the Clan’s “Triumph” Instrumental for a quick freestyle. Here they shed light on fake Rappers, show how sharp they are when it comes to the bars, and how their upcoming projects (Five Steez – Momentum Vol. 3 and The Council’s “Nothing Else Matters“) will separate them from the common folk and will be what you need to hear. I bomb atomically, check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Forming like Voltron with each member having their own lethal dose of bars are the likes of Five Steez, The Sickest Drama, Nomad Carlos and Inztinkz a.k.a. The Council. Titled “Council Arts” and produced by Inztinkz, the members of the newly formed clique reintroduce themselves in the best way they know how effortlessly over a hard hitting production. Having heard their solo works prior, this collaboration screams “Get a EP/Mixtape out now!”. Fortunately they’re working on one so get ready. Jamaican Hip Hop is still on the rise, pay attention!

“International expansion was in our plans from day one” – @Inztinkz
Less than a week away, #PayAttention patrons should expect a fully revamped show kick-started by a complete change of venue. Often times big changes like this can mean detrimental losses, however, the show subtly made their maneuvers and are once again back at it hosting Kingston’s premier Hip-Hop event. The only way forward is up, in my humble opinion.
A: Lately, #PayAttention has been going through a lot; we recently decided to change venues. The next staging of #PayAttention on March 28th will be held at our new venue Club Eutopia in New Kingston. We decided to try out a different vibe, open our doors to performers outside of Kingston that we have always wanted to feature. Look out for continued progress from #PayAttention as we continue to achieve goals and shatter perceptions.
