about

"More than ever I’ve been using music to sort through and let go. I wrote 5 A.M. when I was locked in the house for a couple of days with the flu. I guess I was trying to get all the shit out of my body or something because my mind wandered to a a toxic past relationship and I just needed to write about it. I hadn’t dealt with many parts of it, so there was a lot of real time processing and redrafting before I could properly articulate the whole situation.

Sensible J, with the help of Silent J (not to be confused), had already created the perfect beat-scape for me to vent over. However when I’d finished writing, I felt like we needed some different energy. My brother Whosane has always been one of my favourite people to work with. I love how his mind works in creative settings and I love his voice even more.

One of my favourite albums growing up was Tha Eastsidaz record presented by Snoop Dogg. I loved how people would just come in and out randomly, creating hooks inside of verses and bringing different styles to keep the music moving. That was the intention behind getting him in. He only features for 8bars but his presence is felt HEAVILY. (Many thanks to Silent J for completely flipping there beat for him!!)

Track Name: 5 A.M. feat Whosane
Hey
What you want from me?
Can you tell me Just
Hey
What you want from me
Baby


If we don’t wake up
We are probably
Gonna meet the maker
And
Once we wake up
We are probably gonna need to break up

Thinking bout calling
Home before falling
Out like hair balding
5 in the morning high off endorphins
Thinking bout calling
Home before falling
Out like hair balding
5 in the morning high off endorphins

It’s dangerous

I’m so crazy
You’re so crazy
We’ve both got demons we’re escaping
You’re into the club and cocaine thing
I’m in to self deprecating
Now i’m self medicating
We’re both cooked
Soda is baking in
My nostrils take a sniff start raving
Lights start changing
Eyes start glazing
You engage him
Embrace him
Tongue on tonsils so invasive
Grab my coat
Uber is waiting
Grab my throat
Do what you came to do
Hotter than eternal damnation
New sensation
Smack my face in

(Wo)

Wasn’t ready for that but I take it
(Baby, Baby Toxic Relation)
Now the suns out
Its time to come down
Trees cut down
Smoke up
And mung out
You’re dumb founded
You’re surprised I stuck round
Didn’t opt out like your other encounters
But now we’re mistaking drug cloud
For the love cloud
Cause we’re yet to touch down
And we’re both lost
But because we just found this
Way of drowning doubt we’re now bound here.

You and I can’t relate
We’ve got nothing in common
Every time we conversate
There seems to be a problem
You’re so fine when I was wasted
I let you talk all that shit
But now i’ve got to live


Cause it is bad for my mental
When you flip that switch and go mental
I know you’ve got shit in your past that makes you want to hyde and not jekyll
But you use me as your outlet
Outbursts that keep me down at ground level
Only time you help me elevate
When you give me that brown powder they pedal at the
Club you work at
I’m like a dog tucked in her lap
She says sit i’m sat there gacked
At the bar drunk til she got her cash
Then its back to bed and boom booming
And we’re not using those latex hats
Then two months go by and you shooting him
A text that makes my heart rate go

So what you wanna do cause
I’m down with whatever you choose
So
Will we raise this baby like roof
Or will we make this baby go poof
She said there’s complications
Inside my womb that means I can’t reproduce
But if I could of I wouldn’t of told you
I’d move so you’d never see your new fruit
