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!
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.
