New York-based Jamaica-raised rapper Nomad Carlos is clearly missing his old stomping grounds on his latest single Back Home, featuring Five Steez. The Sosa-produced track takes the form of a phone call from Carlos to Steez to catch up on the happenings at their spot in Jamaican capital of Kingston.
“I’m trying to find out how it is back home / How’s the house? Is the money still flipping on its own?” These are some of the questions Carlos asks on the hook. “Is you still writing dem flames? You tightened your game? / Tell me, what’s the hottest shit out in the streets / sometimes, I’m feeling out of touch like I’m out of reach.”
Five Steez gives his update on the latest developments in his response to Nomad’s first verse, and the two go back-and-forth in the closing verse as they sniff out a snake in their circle.
“I wanted to put out this song because there is nothing like this out there right now,” says Nomad Carlos. “And this is a real conversation between us that lets you get a glimpse of our world.”
Back Home follows the June releases of Lavish Livity, featuring Sonny Jim, and In Us We Trust, all produced by Sosa, a partner in ArkHouse Music with Nomad Carlos.
