The No Surrender Riddim EP is the first release from Monkey Marc’s Jamaican project. The EP includes versions by Sizzla, Capleton, Fantan Mojah, Spring Wata and Jah Thunder over Monkey Marc's heavy hip hop beat and driving bass lines. Additional production by Mista Savona (Havana Meets Kingston).

In an era of transient digital production throughout the modern music industry, Monkey Marc’s production hearkens back to the classic sound of golden era hip hop and the raw energy of 90s dancehall. No Surrender was produced on an MPC3000 and an ATC1 analog synthesizer, and tracked through a vintage BBC broadcast mixing console in Monkey Marc’s solar-powered studio in Melbourne, Australia.

No Surrender is released on Sydney vinyl label Digi Killaz, with previous releases including Monkey Marc’s Dancehall Fraud feat. Jimmy Screech and Mashdown Rome feat. Speng Bond.

No Surrender is the first riddim release off the Soundclash Inna Kingston Town full-length album, slated for release in late 2017. Other artists on the Soundclash LP include Iba Mahr, Dre Island, Ninja Man, Turbulence, Lutan Fyah, Prince Allah and a host of up-and-coming artists.

Intro / Capleton

Babylon days are numbered
I see dem a fall and slumber
I heard dem a bawl and blunder
So easily dem going down.
Babylon days are numbered
I see dem a fall and slumber
I hear dem a bawl and blunder
So easily dem going down.

Verse 1 / Fantan Mojah

Welcome to the streets of the tough life
As a warrior me grow up wid a rough life
When wi touch di caana, we nuh run drama
Real gangsta nuh love spotlight
When me step to the food no joke about it
Hot fire start blaze and dem cyan come out it
Anything inna me way betta move
Cause if you mek a move to me place.

Chorus / Sizzla

And me say bless up fi di poor
Make your, make your life better
Money fi di poor me say, and through the weather
Bless up fi di poor
Make your, make your life better
Better, better, better

Verse 2 / Capleton

Hey Babylon a crosses
Well a di wrong set a youths dem go fass wid
Woi! Dem a snake under grass wid
Nuff a dem guh go bow to the bosses
Well a fireman a bun dem ago scorch wid
So we ago bun dem to ashes
A nuff youths dem have as hostage
Say dem wah fi shoot dem like a portage

(Deh one yah name)

CHORUS

Verse 3 / Sizzla

Poor people a suffer so long me observe it
Morning to night dem a offer them service
Do it for the children, well make sure preserve it
Poor people more than willing and worthy
Give dem everything and give dem more than that
Give dem everything, and di dem more pan that
Poor people foundation, and me sure bout that
From the floor to the top.

CHORUS

Verse 4 / Fantan Mojah

Gangster rules, affi know how fi hunt fi eat
You affi pressure the road, seven day a di week
To survive in the streets, them ask how we dweet
Tell them no surrender, me say no retreat
We living in the days of the mob

Don’t call the 5-0
They will kill you for the money weh you have
When you hand the gold to make the dough
You better lie low.

Bridge / Sizzla

Every ghetto youths affi reach somewhere
Every ghetto youths affi reach somewhere
Every ghetto youths affi reach somewhere
Every ghetto youths affi reach somewhere

Hustlers, get the food
Hustlers, make the food

Chorus

In these streets, jeopardy inna gangster’s home.
In these streets, where it all began.
In these streets, every king haffi stand them ground.

Verse 1

Welcome to the streets of the tough life
As a warrior me grow up with a rough life
When we touch the corner, we nuh run drama
Real gangsta nuh love spotlight.
When me step to the food no joke about it,
Hot fire start blaze and dem cyan come out it
Anything inna me way better move
Cause if you mek a move to me place.

Chorus

Verse 2

Gangster rules, haffi know how fi hunt fi eat,
You haffi pressure the road, seven days a week,
To survive in the streets, them ask how we do it,
Tell them no surrender, me say no retreat!
We living in the days of the mob,
Ain’t no informing thing,
Don’t call the 5-0
They will kill you for the money that you have,
When you hand the gold to make the dough,
You better lie low.

Chorus

Verse 3

We got money, guns, bitches and cars in one place,
Every eyes wide open
It’s like a rat race
Sirens in the air plus screaming
Running up and down, every man want a slice of the cake
Rules haffi set pan gangsta hill
Nuff youth fi go a school and we sponsor dem
So when Babylon come to terrorise the youth dem
so we answer them

Chorus

In these streets, jeopardy inna gangster’s home.
In these streets, where it all began.
In these streets, jeopardy inna gangster’s home.
In these streets, every king haffi stand their ground.
