Five Steez & Mordecai deliver their second leak “Work” off their upcoming collaboration project ‘Love N Art’. Over a solemn, piano riff Five Steez breaks down the lazy competition and puts the naysayers in their place. Five Steez addresses contemporaries and critics seeking to discredit him. He goes on expressing his belief in self and love for music, then returns to his verbal onslaught against his detractors who remain nameless.
Five Steez says everyone that has heard Work has had immediate questions. “People ask who upset me. Some ask if it’s a diss song,” he explains while laughing. “But like Jay Z once said, ‘It’s not a diss song, it’s just a real song.’” According to the artist, the track is not directed at anyone in particular, but it is inspired by various interactions and addresses them all.
Work follows True Original, released in September as the first single from Love N Art, which is scheduled for early 2019. The album is the second body of work from Five Steez and Mordecai since the 2016 EP, HeatRockz. Steez calls it his most honest and personal project. “It is also soulful and full of jazz,” he says. “We zoned in on a specific vibe we knew people would relate to and be moved by.”
