Artist: Khleo Thomas
Track: 5 on It
Producer: Bugsy
Album: Raised in the 90's EP

In late January, Meek Mill stepped into the Booth with Heaven or Hell, a mixtape single whose Beat Bully-produced instrumental prominently sampled Luniz’s I Got 5 on It. Looks like he’s not the only one who’s had that R&B classic running through his head lately. Today, singer/songwriter Khleo Thomas introduces himself with his own hip hop-infused version of the ‘95 hit. By way of a deft double-entendre, the singer transforms the joint into an ode to the female posterior: “Hands on that ass, I got 5 on It.” Beatsmith Bugsy retools the sample for maximum twerk-ability, fortifying the rhythm section with handclaps and a booming kick. Fans will be able to find 5 on It and many more nostalgic jams on the artist’s Raised in the 90’s EP, which currently awaits a release date.
