The video is directed by Jebus and is a darkened video with each emcee stepping to the front for illumination as they deliver their parts. DJ Mo-K also cameos in the video and it was he who picked the instrumental for the guys while sorting through tracks for them.

The track is an old Gang Starr track that was remixed by some DJ from the States. It starts with a nice bouncy beat that uses a hard but rounded kick and a splashy snare laced with a tambourine on every second hit. It utilises a smooth old skool Jazz sample with controlled horns and a haunting female vocal over the top. The track has a great flow and has a jump on feel to it and Nucentz does just that as he goes in first with a perfectly timed snappy rhyme

Now all these mouths wanna talk till the days old

every other move we make then the hate grows

You do songs at gaff partys with your mates bro

I do songs with Lupe....... case closed

Nucentz takes the hook on the track also as he hypes up the Class A'z reputation. Nugget is in next as the change in flow gives a switch to the track as he reminisces about coming up listening to the guys and the journey to his present position and stature within the game

I was unknown, now I got a fuckload a fans and supporters

got the album on order, internationally known man, I'm passing the border

The track just eases along with the solid head nodding beat, making excellent use of the difference in timbre and flow from each emcee to the next. Terawrizt drops in next with his trademark flow, switching up paces and delivering tight couplets while bragging justifiably about his group's sound and productions

Smoke Room we kill it kid,

so if it's got the logo with the cut throat, balaclava and the pyramid

that shit is sick and I've been killing this since day one

Cos I'm the type to give a shit but don't take none

Redzer is in last and makes the entrance to this track as he always does...running..! Keeping with the theme, talking up his group's status and tight flowed, he drops his snappy punchlines and jokes on the track that get you smiling about topics you know you shouldn't

All these up and coming artists hope to know Red

Class A'z run shit like a bloke with no legs

It's safe to say I find you rappers boring

Thats why I'm not defending all a you capper's ... Jordan

Yet another top class track from the Class A'z who just don't do wrong when it comes to good music and good sound. Great track choice...shout to Mo-K on that and a great combination of delivery and presence from the lads. That brings it to two, the releases already out from the upcoming mixtape On Tick,the first being the quick paced banger I'm Back check out the review here http://www.hiphop32.com/?p=205 . With both being top rated tracks that could easily find their way onto any official project, the hype has been well created and we should have the free mixtape before Christmas.[[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_large","fid":"120","attributes":{"class":"media-image","typeof":"foaf:Image","height":"350","width":"425","style":""}}]]
