After many delays and a few singles, Jamaican Rap Super Group The Council finally released their debut Album, “Nothing Else Matters“. Featuring 16 tracks, the Rappers Five Steez, The Sickest Drama, Nomad Carlos, and Inztinkz promises that Jamaican Hip Hop and the “First Coast Movement” will be on another level with this project. From songs featuring Social Commentary, reminiscing on the “Golden Era”, everyday struggle, to just flexing their lyrical abilities, NEM has something for those who need an escape from the “Mumble Rap” and want to hear “Real Rap“. The Album also features verses from Kabaka Pyramid, Koro Fyah, Massy The Creator, Tha God Fahim, Illicit King, Triple Tr8, J Militia, and Beast while Inztinkz guides them all with some amazing Production. With years in the making, NEM will not disappoint, and should be a nice addition to your collection. Presentation is also a premium experience with Black and Gold giving it a royal look to fit the tone of the Album. Art Direction by Jome Anderson (Scotty Dreamz) and Warren Buckle. The Album is now available on Bandcamp for purchase, and will expand to other popular Music Streaming outlets in the coming weeks. No more talking, get you a dose of some Jamaican Hip Hop below!
It’s “Crunch Time” for the Hip Hop “Supergroup“, The Council (Five Steez, Nomad Carlos, The Sickest Drama, Inztinkz) as their debut Album’s release comes sooner than you think. Teaming up with Kabaka Pyramid, Koro Fyah, and Massy The Creator, they unleashed their 5th single titled, “Misery“. With Inztinkz handling the boards, the Artists offer some social commentary as they detail the conditions faced in Jamaica and how frustrating it can be to the point leaving the Island could be an option. In a society where the blind is leading the blind, and the system barring out those who can make a difference, it really is dread out here. Be on the look out as The Council sees September 29 as the due date for their debut Album, “Nothing Else Matters“. Artwork by Jome Anderson a.k.a. Scotty DreamKiller. Check out the track below.
The collaboration between Jamaican Rapper Five Steez and NY Radio Icon DJ Ready Cee has been a fruitful one over the years. With their “Momentum Vol. 1 & 2” Mixtapes bringing in a lot of buzz, Steez has managed to capitalize off it with the release of two projects, and numerous freestyles and collaborations including one with Hip Hop Super group, “The Council“. Today, the duo complete the trilogy with “Momentum Vol. 3“. Featuring Steez hopping on classic Hip Hop Instrumentals while Ready Cee does his signature cuts, fans are taken back in time thanks to the beats, and then brought up to speed with Steez’s bars. Nomad Carlos, Dizzy The Ill One, Inztinkz, The Sickest Drama and Massy The Creator even stop by to add some bars to the mix. While this is not a Swan Song for Five Steez, he closes this “Momentum” series with a bang and gives listeners an idea what’s in store from here on.

What we have here, is a lyrical exercise between 1/4th of The Council and a one man army. The Sickest Drama along with Triple Threat bring to you the lyrical Theatre for your ears called “Infinity Gauntlet“. Produced by Massy The Creator, the First Coast Rappers bring forth a “Clash of the Titans” scene over a dark Production filled with haunting choir vocals. With more bars than your favourite Correctional Institution, TSD gives you an idea on what he’ll provide on the upcoming project from “The Council“, while Triple wants you to know he’s nice on the beats and you should pay attention. No 3D Glasses and movie tickets required. Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
