Vancouver BC – Vancity artists and young, conscious, love-revolutionaries Claire Mortifee & Young Nige have come together with Battered Women’s Support services to break the silence on a very important and often uncomfortable issue of violence against women.
Their track “Compassion In A Kiss” presses on the topic of rape, sexual abuse and a woman’s right to “no”. The track is filled with raw, emotional lyrics expressing some personal experiences but relays an overall message of spreading love – “I gotta wish / That the entire world feels compassion in a kiss”.
The track was produced by K-Rec and the visuals – that feature a handful of recognizable Vancouver faces – were directed by Jem Garrard. Check it out below.
Vancouver, BC – Vocalist Young Nige links up with producer Blac Hollywood (AKA Ghozt Pit) to craft 15 minutes of stark techno-realism with Close One. The five
song EP marks the atypical MC’s first solo effort outside of the Adult Contemporary Rap group Friends With The Help.
Close One credits Blac Hollywood for production on this project while K-Rec adds his signature to album’s engineering, mixing, mastering and scratching. Check it out below.
Vancouver, BC – Dave Fields comes out of Vancity with some dark, cinematic visuals for his joint “Care Too Much” directed by Steve Ess. Fields throws some auto-tuned melody to his raw content, reflecting on some very low points in his life.
Peep the visuals below.
Regina, SK – C.J.E. rapper Pimpton just hit us with his latest video release for “Buck Up” (produced by longtime Pimpton collaborator Kholebeatz). This song is a fair warning from Pimpton directed at any f**kboys who want to hate on the C.J.E. squad: y’all better Buck Up.
The video (directed by the great mighty and powerful Stuey Kubrick) gives a slight nod to Stanley Kubrick’s cult film, A Clockwork Orange. Set in a creepy carnival scene with a serious throwback to Halloween, Pimpton delivers one hella intimidating set of visuals on this one. ALSO TAKE NOTE: the clowns are symbolic. Because if you’re going to act like a f**kboy, you’re a total doofus clown. Serious symbolism, right there.
