Potent Steez

Potent Steez is a group that brings a breath of fresh air to the hip-hop community, putting raw lyrics, charisma, and creative flow to the latest, hottest beats. Coming out of Jamaica, Queens, hip-hop artists, Severe Passion and 3rd Birth, came together combining their talent, style, and uniqueness.

Building their brand, they debuted an EP album called, Bright City Dark Nights, including two videos that were released on the thisis50.com website. After dropping the EP, Potent Steez followed up with a single titled, "What's Love," featuring Queensbridge veteran, Tragedy Khadafi. Another video was released to complement the collabo, which covered the aspect of the word love and its meaning to each individual artist.

Following the EP and the single, and participating in major showcases performing amongst the likes of Papoose, Remy Ma, Cassidy, Dave East, Cuban Link, Cappadonna from Wu-Tang, Loaded Luxx, Rockness Monsta from Heltah Skeltah, and others, Potent Steez has now released their official LP, Class Of Our Own, available on their website www.potentsteez.com. The Potent brand continues to expand and grow a bigger fan base. They push forward as a movement keeping the genuine hip-hop sound alive in a generation where it has been seemingly lost.
