'My Music' is a heartfelt, soulful banger with a hook that won't get out of your head. Notion speaks on his struggles, his coping mechanisms, his dreams and mostly his passion for music. What better way to prepare y'all for 'Pride On My Cufflinks', his first full length release, coming later this year.
The Movement Fam proudly presents Notion's debut music video for 'So Cold'. Directed and shot by Andrew Pierce in Toronto, Canada, shouts to the homies Eric, Ian and Jesse for making it happen, and much love to Shauna and Tiff (our lovely ladies). Y'all can cop the audio of the song free on Notion's Bandcamp.
"What better way to wrap up 2012 (the world might even end tomorrow, who knows?) than to drop an original track for y'all? This song was originally written and recorded in 2007 for my boy's compilation album. It kinda kicked around since then; I tried to finish it a few times, it just never worked. Until now. Weapon X is prolly my favourite MC out of Australia, and one of my biggest inspirations, so it was a blessing to work with dude. Stoked that it came out how it did. Enjoy."

I've done a couple joints with the homie outta the UK, FlamesYall. He hit me with a joint for his new sex-themed EP, and I done fucked it up by not adhering to the topic. This kinda worked to our advantage, as now we have a single and a feature on the HipHopSpeakEasy.com Hurricane Sandy mixtape. Take a listen to the tune on FlamesYall's SoundCloud, and huge shouts to Worgie and Daryl S. Tattoo for the ridiculously dope guitar, and Notion for the mix/extra production. We got a joint on our hands, here...
Ah yeah. I STAYS late, pimp. This is my September joint. It was from the Cee & Bekah 'The Soul Movement Volume 3' sessions, but we ran out of room on the tape for it. I really wanted to find a way to get it out, so this seemed like the perfect fit. 'The College Dropout' is one of my favourite and most influential albums of all time, so I had to go in on this one.
It's up on iTunes right now and it's only $0.99 - bargain, eh. Maybe $1.69 in Australia. Bastards stay jackin' up prices.
Oz Hip Hop is poppin' hard right now (pause). Three dope MCs came together, put their solo stuff on hold for a second, formed a group and knocked out a fresh album that's making some serious noise. The fellas took the time to chat with me about the album and other assorted rap singer related nonsense. Peep game.
The big homie Esscay has just released his sophomore mixtape, entitled 'The Movember Mixtape' in support of the prostate cancer/depression charity that runs throughout the world in November every year. Big ups on your charity game, son.
So this is his latest work since 2006's 'Training Day Mixtape', which is a classic in my eyes (and not coz I was on it lol). Ess done got out the Antares Autotune for this bitch and murked the shit out of it. This is his first project entirely solo, doing everything from recording, mixing to promoting it, so huge props for taking on that responsibility.
The Movement Fam's own Micnificent even makes an appearance on 'Say Nothin' too. Fucking real.
Head down to Esscay.com and download this bitch right now! It'll change your life! And donate to the Movemeber cause while you're there!!
Apologies for the retarded photo. Photoshop is out of action currently, couldn't whip up a Movement Fam YouTube themed goodie.
Anyway, after a week or so of grinding to work out iMovie's intricacies, I finally managed to upload every song from all four Movement Fam mixtape releases onto The Movement Fam YouTube channel.
So for those who always wanted to just hear the tunes and couldn't be fucked downloading the mixtapes (though you really should, it'll change your life), or you're trying to show one of your homies the dope music coming out of The Fam, then we've just made life a lot easier. For you. Coz we love you all.
Floetry fans, y'all should get excited. The unmistakable voice of Marsha Ambrosius has been heard on some of the dopest albums of the last few years, and finally we have a solo mixtape from the woman herself, entitled Yours Truly, and mixed by Don Canon (you know the dude).
Shouts to the homie Kenn Starr for the info, and big ups to my dude Kevin Nottingham for posting the info on his blog.
