And just like that, it's over. Two thousand and fourteen was an incredible year for The Movement Fam, y'all. We were extremely blessed to have been able to reach a bunch of milestones that we're extremely proud of, we learned a lot, we made some amazing new friends and we had a ball along the way.
We hope 2014 was as fantastic for you guys as it was for us. And if it wasn't for y'all - from the bloggers and media showing love online, in print and on TV; to the radio and club DJs supporting our music, helping it chart and spreading the word arond the globe; to our artist homies who rolled with us on tour and schooled us proper; to the promoters who believed in us and put us on the huge shows continually; to the supporters who copped the music, merch and tickets - none of this would have been possible. So we'd truly like to thank you all - your love and support for our dreams mean more than you could possibly know.
Here are some of our highlights of 2014:
-Cee's debut album 'This Is All I Know' dropped on his birthday, April 10th, and at midnight on the eve of release, it peaked at #6 in Canada and #8 in Australia on the iTunes Hip Hop charts (#91 in Canada and #66 in Australia in the Top 100 of all genres) - all with $0 budget and the power of the people!
-Cee teamed with US craft beer merch company BrewHeads to create an extremely unique product: a 100% Made in the USA custom snapback and 22k gold printed Bière Sommelier glass in a gift pack, along with a video (courtesy of 9Block Productions) for the world's first official craft beer anthem, 'BrewHeads'.
-We dropped a bunch of other videos: 'Rainy Days' ft. D-Shade, 'Another Day' ft. Notion & Nox, 'It Ain't Over' ft. Hezekiah, 'Another Day (Fresh Kils Nice Afternoon Remix)', 'Lift Up (Remix)' ft. iLLvibe and 'Intro' x The XX x Aria Zenua.
-All of our major projects ('Steps To The Peak', 'Pride On My Cufflinks' and 'This Is All I Know') charted in the Top 10 Hip Hop releases in College Radio stations across Canada - from Victoria, BC to Calgary, AB to London, ON to Montreal, QC, radio showed us a ton of love in 2014.
So 2015...we're comin' for you. Notion's acoustic EP 'Out The Basement' and his debut album 'Heart On My Sleeve Music' are the first major releases on the schedule, along with tours and some other huge announcements...we're excited. Stay tuned. <3
