5th Flow – Quater To A Half
Featured Track : Quater To A Half
5th Flow (Rahlo, JClay, Supreme), Houston’s Crunkest new rap trio…and they are on fire!!! These boys literally shut the club down when they show up 50 DEEP! In layman’s terms; (they have an entourage of 50 people). To add to the mayhem, the group’s live stage performance is that of a rock show. 5th Flow gets the crowd involved in the show with their high energy and impressive showmanship!!
If you’re not moving after you hear the first verse of their single “Quarter To A Half” you’re either on drugs or deaf. Imagine Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Twista, T.I., and Ludacris united on one mixtape, for one cause, or even under one umbrella. Well, there is no longer a need to imagine because Rahlo, JClay, and Supreme deliver a lyrical flurry of that ‘Dirty South/Midwest’ heat directly to yo mama’s front porch. The sound is remarkable! You can hear the 5th Flow/Pink Slip swagger and personality piercing through the speakers.
5th Flow covers all bases from street anthems, like the debut single Quarter to A Half, to Party’s in the Hamptons with the “Rich White Kid” single. 5th Flow delivers rhymes filled with passion, lyrical content, and subject matter on a consistent basis…unlike several of their MC counterparts that tend to have diarrhea (runoff) at the mouth. This is Hood Music at it’s finest.
The group was formed at Prairie View A&M University where JClay and Rahlo launched Pink Slip Records and Supreme at the time, ran his own underground label Supreme Records. After several mixtape encounters followed by an “ON CAMPUS BUZZ” the three joined to feature on the PVAMU acclaimed mixtape “Name Dem Shows” followed by the release of Rahlo’s debut album “The Sources”.
Shortly after the mixtape/album release the group experienced an overwhelming amount of notoriety for the single “Takin Over”. With their new found notoriety came CASH-IN-HAND and a demand for another mixtape release. So the group carefully crafted PINK SLIP RADIO VOL. 2: 5TH FLOW EDITION which is 21 tracks of the Kitchen Oven…HEAT. To add fuel to the fire they dropped the video “Takin Over” in April 2007 which has accumulated 50,000 plus plays on the Web.
At present, with the 2007 release of the debut single Quarter To A Half comes the anticipation of the QUATER TO A HALF MIXTAPE due out spring 2008.
