Maestro Fresh Wes – Timeless ft. Divine Brown [Video]
Toronto, ON – As a kick-off to Black History Month, Maestro Fresh Wes has teamed up with Divine Brown for this new video for their collaboration joint entitled “Timeless.” This track is dedicated to the legacy of the most inspirational Black leaders including Nelson Mandela, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr., as well as musical icons such as Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, James Brown, Bob Marley, and Oscar Peterson.
This track was produced by The Rezza Brothers, and the video was filmed by WILLXMOVEMENT. The video also features appearances by Dan-e-o, Eklipz, Born King, Mark Stoddart, and violinist Andrew Forde. Check it out below and cop a download of the track via iTunes. In fact, you may as well just download the entire Orchestrated Noise project while you’re at it. It was that fresh.
And in case you were wondering, it was a Nelson Mandela quote that inspired Maestro to pen this particular track: “What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is the difference we have made in the lives of others, that will determine the significance of the life we lead.”
And I’m sure he’s too humble to admit it, but we should all take pause to recognize the legacy that is Maestro Fresh Wes. He paved the way for Canadian hip-hop, and set the foundation for others to build upon. And for that, we should all be thankful.
So if you find yourself on a bit of a Maestro-kick this week, make sure you peep his single, “Reach for the Sky,” (featuring Classified and Blue Rodeo). The track was recently selected by CBC for playtime throughout the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi (starting on Feb. 6).
