Cee linked up with Philly resident Hezekiah (Bilal, The Roots, Talib Kweli) for this soulful head nodder. Shot in Mile End (the hipster HQ of Montreal) by long-time collaborator Richard Bastarache, the visuals for 'It Ain't Over' are simple yet fun, as the contagious energy of the two MCs perfectly compliments the positive vibes and strong message of the track.

I heart Jilly. Here is the visuals for the new single 'Shame' featuring Eve and The A Group from her upcoming album 'The Light Of The Sun'. Eve looks spankin', and Jilly is amazing as usual. Philly was well represented with Black Thought even rockin' some illness at the beginning. What y'all think?
I think I totally missed the boat on this one. Apparently it's been out for a minute but I only caught it today. Oh well. Never claimed to be first at this blog shit lol.
The Roots fans should dig this. Is that Black Thought singing at the start? I think the album might be out...
Aight, so I'm mainly blogging this out of spite. Fuck. Look at this line up. Look at it.
THIS is part of the reason The Movement Fam is moving to North America. Shit like this just doesn't happen down here. Goddamnit. Such an eclectic line up, it'd be worth every damn cent. Check it out and fume with me in a silent yet jealous rage...

If you ain't heard of J. Cole, get on it. Peep the footage of dude rockin' at the Sneakerpimps gig in Philly recently. Especially check for the 4 minute mark on the first video for the banger 'Lights Please'.
