The Council is here! While they have been staying busy, the Jamaican Hip Hop Group consisting of Five Steez, Nomad Carlos, The Sickest Drama, and Inztinkz continue their mission to wave the “First Coast” flag everywhere they go. With their debut project “Nothing Else Matters” making its rounds, they added a boost in the form of a music video for the track “Council Arts“! Directed by Scotty Dreamkiller and shot in Kingston by Warren Buckle, we step into a Council cypher they each fire off a few lyrical rounds and further seal that Jamaican Hip Hop should not be taken lightly. With plans to release more work individually, and as a group, all you have to do is “Pay Attention“! “Nothing Else Matters” is available now, check out the video below.
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.

Jamaican Hip Hop Super Group The Council, which comprises of Five Steez, Inztinkz, Nomad Carlos and The Sickest Drama, is currently working on the “Nothing Else Matters” Album. With over a year since their debut single and a few weeks since their 2nd single, they aim to hold over fans with their 2 track EP titled “Forgotten Parables“. Produced by Inztinkz and featuring Arofat, Julio Sluggz and Wallabee, the Group explained that these songs were made years prior to the formation of the Group and it was only right to set them free and show listeners that it was written for them to work together exclusively. “Nothing Else Matters” sees a 2017 release but for now, check out the EP below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
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.
