Earlier this summer we introduced you to Rock City (St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands) rapper Paebak, via his infectious single “VI OGs.” The VI’s hottest spitter returns with a heated take on Drake’s “5AM in Toronto,” one of the canvases of choice for the lyrically gifted this year. Lyrically, Paebak taps into the beat’s early-morning vibe on the track, the first from his upcoming mixtape History, while the video features visuals of the scenic St. Thomas waterfront at what actually appears to be 5 o’clock in the morning.

Watch the video below, and get the audio here. As a LargeUp bonus, check out Paebak in a more cultural light alongside reggae artist Pressure Buss Pipe with a studio performance of “One More Try.”
