The Blue – Still At It ft. Jam [Video]

Calgary, ABThe Blue recently hit us with new visuals for the track “Still At It” (featuring Jam) off his forthcoming album release due out later in 2015.

This track is an anthem of perseverance and staying on-the-grind. The Blue takes us on to the basketball courts where he’s attempts to find glory in the b-ball world. But dude isn’t doing too hot. But that’s where this whole “Still At It” thing becomes key. The Blue stays at it. He also brings Jam on to the track for a feature verse. And on that note: shout-out to Jam for a rocking a 10 at 10 t-shirt in support of our fam over at the monthly 10 at 10 Hip Hop Showcase in Calgary. All love.

The beat on the track was produced by Makemdef; who is one of the gnarliest producers (and nicest dudes) on the Calgary scene. So I’m pretty giddy that he’s linking up with The Blue. Also, shout-out to Morgan Ermter for directing it all. Now check the video after the jump.

At 2:26, The Blue shoots and lands it in the basket. And then Jam shoots, and lands it in the basket. And all is gravy in the world. So what’s the lesson, here? If you want it; you’ll get it. Whether it’s fame in the rap game, or baskets on the court. If you work for it and put in the time, you’ll see it all come full-circle.

The Blue has grown up a lot since I first met him. I did an “Our On Radar” profile on him way back in February 2013 when Blue was still 16 years old (and very much “Still At It”). He’s now 18 years old and grinding hard. His flow has improved so much. It’s actually really dope to compare his lines from a few years ago with his lines on this. He keeps it crisp.
