@FiveSteez Shows Us The “Dirty Couch” In New Video!

Fresh off the release of his “HeatRockzEP with Producer Mordecai Beats, Rapper Five Steez introduces his “Dirty Couch” to the world in his first visual off the project. Directed by Scotty DreamKiller with assistance from Dirx, Steez drops the bars you know in between crashing and pouring up some Dragon Stout on his couch. With the Yellow/Black colour being prevalent throughout the video, this gives the impression that Five Steez is paying homage to the Wu Tang Clan here. This video wouldn’t be the same if members of the First Coast didn’t show their face and had their share of Dragon Stout on the couch. HeatRockz is available now! Get familiar with the boom bap Rap by checking out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

@Khaos_Music Flips BlackStar’s “Respiration” On “Advertising The Truth”!

This Summer’s heat wasn’t enough for Recording Artist Khaos as he turned on every stove, fireplace, and broke the Thermostat on “Advertising The Truth“. Borrowing the Instrumental to American Hip Hop Duo BlackStar’sRespiration“, Khaos fires off on how the truth is not respected nowadays, making dumb people famous, false promises, never letting anyone take his dreams, and dropping more knowledge in his music. Not even a Deep Freezer can keep this on chill right now. “So much on my mind that I can’t recline“. Expect more Khaos music very soon but for now, check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

@TheSickestDrama Wants You To “Step Into The Light”!

The First Coast continues to make noise today as 1/4 of The Council, The Sickest Drama, aims to illuminate your 3rd eye with “Step Into The Light“. Produced by Damien Beatz, “TS, no BS, only sip V/X” is charged up as he’s on the path to show listeners that the mumble Rap needs to meet the trashcan. With an array of consciousness over the smooth Production, TSD shows that not only can he switch up the flow, but take the listeners far and wide with the lyrics! “Step Into The Light” is the first release off his upcoming project, and a possible teaser of what he’s to bring off the debut project from The Council. For some reason I’ve heard the opening bars of the hook a couple years ago (Was it from a freestyle TSD?). Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

REVIEW: @TaZzHTG – “Savage” EP

It’s taken me a little while to get around to checking this project out but i’m finally hip. First Coast Jamaica describes aficionados like myself who are obsessed with paving the way for an underground movement which clamors for a mainstream boost.

Words By: @Sef_Jo

Montego Bay native/South Florida based Daley has compiled Savage EP as a way of communicating this whole idea that Kingstonians cannot call all the shots where the game is concerned. With only a couple months since Know My Intentions by MoulaUE [featured on the project], Savage was released at an ideal time to get the place lit right before Summer ’16. I would personally call this 8-track project a smooth spin on this wave of future trap. It comprises of elements that TDE fans might enjoy with a production vibe which reminds me of SABApivot’s work. Without further adieu…
    The seamless Introduction to the project features the alluring vocal essence of Rosh. “One time for your mind..” is the message invoking a mindful meditation wherein listeners are asked to sit back listen and enjoy for the next 28mins~ Success, wealth and health for all.
    Clever metaphors and punchlines; sonics are on point too as we jump right in. Get used to the sound of Daley as his entire flow is switched up. At this point, I’ve made up my mind to refrain myself from too much comparisons. As we know, Mobay is the city Daley reps; I want to assume, however, that living in Pembroke Pines has had some influence on the Rapper’s creative experience. MoulaUE’s booming rhymes and OneLoveTheo final verse reminds us that we have got to keep it savage. This is the ultimate rule and trap culture is reiterated.
    As an audiophile, I always love when Artists choose singles that will get me hype. This is what made me interested in giving the project a listen. From the Instrumental to the energy presented here, I’m hardly regretting my decision to compare Daley to some one else. The mystery box that is First Coast Jamaica is that just as it in every other corner of the world, you never know what you will find. Ignite allows me to experience the full versatility of Daley, solely. Don’t care how you feel about it, this joint slaps.
