Kingston, Jamaica’s MC supergroup, The Council has enlisted Reggae’s recent stars for its newly available fifth and final single from its album, ‘Nothing Else Matters,’ scheduled for release on September 29. The new song, titled “Misery,” features longtime collaborators Koro Fyah, Kabaka Pyramid and Massy the Creator who join the crew for an epic, authentic fusion of boom bap Hip Hop and roots Reggae, laced with social commentary and messages of reparation and repatriation.

“Misery,” produced by Inztinkz, like all other tracks on The Council’s album – features poignant and potent verses from Massy the Creator, The Sickest Drama, Kabaka Pyramid and Five Steez, with Koro Fyah delivering the hook, lambasting the system.

“This song is just another realm of what we have to offer on Nothing Else Matters, thematically and sonically,” says Inztinkz. “Compared to our last single, this is like a flipside.”

Starting with Council Arts in September 2015, The Council released a series of singles including The Final Countdown, Valhalla Doctrine (featuring Tha God Fahim), and the most recent one, Promised Land (featuring J Militia), in March of this year.

Nothing Else Matters‘ will be finally released exclusively via Bandcamp on Friday, September 29, and will be rolled out across other digital outlets and in physical form during the following months.

The Council, which comprises Inztinkz, The Sickest Drama, Nomad Carlos and Five Steez, is Kingston’s champion team for the Hip Hop culture, maintaining a consistent presence in the city’s underground scene for over a decade as solo acts and organizers of Hip Hop events. So, check them out!
