Trabolee teams up forces with Five Steez over luxurious and lush production to champion for expansion of both the material and mental in a celebratory but also inspirational track. Tra and Steez welcome the listeners into their current vibrational plane, freely expressing their beliefs across the two verses as Bam! adds her well-timed harmonies on the bridge. Know Now is the theme music for resting in your own truth and progress, as creatively construed by the three artists, over a dope Swahililand flip by producer Edd.

Depending on one’s cultural orientation, different locations may come to mind when one hears of ‘the promised land’. For Kingston, Jamaica’s Hip Hop collective, The Council, this place is its home, which it represents proudly on its latest release titled after the term.

Promised Land captures the totality of Jamaica, a nation regarded as a cultural super state because of its global impact despite its small size. The track shows both the country’s dark and light sides, from its streets to its beaches, all while highlighting some of its history and values.

The song is the fourth offering from The Council’s upcoming album, Nothing Else Matters, and features all four members of the crew – Inztinkz (also the group’s producer), Five Steez, The Sickest Drama (TSD) and Nomad Carlos – alongside J Militia, who croons soulfully on the hook.
