KINGSTON, JAMAICA – Rising Hip Hop artiste, Five Steez, and New York City radio icon, DJ Ready Cee, have released the highly anticipated ‘Momentum: Volume Two’ mixtape for free download and streaming at http://www.djreadycee.com & iTunes. The 35-minute mix by DJ Ready Cee is also available as a single-track and as 17 separate tracks at the Five Steez Facebook Fan Page (http://www.facebook.com/fivesteez).
‘Volume One’ in the three-part series, released December 2010, clocked tens of thousands of downloads within months of its release.
“I took it back to the ‘golden era’ with the choice of instrumentals on the last one and now we’ve moved up in time. It’s the same concept but the energy is crazier plus there are new flows and new styles. I had to top the first one with this. That’s the whole idea of building momentum,” says the young Kingston-based rapper.
Despite widespread local and international awareness of an emerging Hip Hop scene in the land of Reggae, Five Steez has captured the attention of numerous tastemakers in Hip Hop including the legendary DJ Ready Cee.
“I’m telling you, whoever felt Volume One is gonna love Volume Two. It’s exactly the same vibe and sounds like a perfect continuation. I know it took a long while but I just had to wait for the right time,” says DJ Ready Cee.
Five Steez is one of Jamaica’s leading Hip Hop artistes gaining recognition on and off the island. He is currently working on his debut album entitled ‘War for Peace’, which will be released in 2012.Tweet
