A few months ago 5th Child contributed a voiceover for a commercial for the Mississippi Department of Transportation.

The MDOT "Get Your Game On" commercial spot has won a total of three 2014 Davey Awards for outstanding advertisement. Huge s/o to Sam Watson, Philip Scarbrough, Tom Beck, and everyone at The Gibbes Company!

Maybe not what you're used to hearing from 5th, but versatility is an important trait in this business, lol. By the way, here's that award-winning clip!

5th Child- Motherless Child

When anxiety overcomes/ I'm fightin' it over drums/
Mama cryin' tears of joy at the sight of what I've become/
Blacks gunning over fights/ Whites fighting over guns/
But I'd rather be righteous than right when it's said and done/
You cheatin' the reaper when you surviving through the slums/
Where they takin' all the cake and slide icing on the crumbs/
Then they hand you a plate/ You start stuffing your face/
Wonderin' why dem belly full but to the hunger you succumb/
I guess that's why I'm getting numb/ and I ain't feelin' they opinions/
When you recognize the real it starts revealing the chameleons/
Used to pray over meals and now we're praying over millions/
'Cause the appetite for that rapper life is so appealing/
The kingdom's full of soldiers/ No such thing as civilians/
So let us in the door or else we're bringing down the buildin'/
It's moments like this when I-I get a feelin'/
Even if I'm not a star... I'm a star that shines brilliant/

What I'm On Now: Toro y Moi's Anything In Return

Although I primarily make hip hop music, I find inspiration in all types of music. Lately, this has been the only thing I care to listen to. Apparently it's called "chillwave" but either way it's jamming. I first heard of Toro y Moi when I Shazam'd a song I heard in some department store or something. Then my homie DJ Young Venom had the vinyl copy of the album Anything in Return at his studio and after hearing a few more tracks I was completely sold. This album has been in HEAVY rotation everywhere I go. I've been playing it for everyone I know and they all dig it. You probably will too... Check it out... Toro y Moi- Anything in Return
