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.

It's actually a funny story. FlamesYall asked Cee to write a song for his upcoming sex-themed EP. Cee somehow managed to mis-read the email with the instructions and wrote the song that became 'PromNight', clearly off-topic. Instead of scrapping it and writing a new track, the two decided to release the tune as a single via Soundcloud. When Cee linked with Montreal-based videographer Richard Bastarache, they shot the video for the joint on location at Parc La Fontaine in the 514, and the rest is history.
"The Movement Fam's Notion (Toronto) and Cee (Montreal) teamed with Heavy Aux Records' Toronto native iLLvibe for a fresh, fun summer jam over one of Notion's productions; as the tangible chemistry between the three MCs became more evident, what began as a simple collaboration had now spawned something much larger and more exciting.
The project has been in the works since early 2013, with the official release currently pencilled in for the late summer. Nova Scotian-born Shane Russell of 9Block Productions, a regular collaborator with Cee on many of his projects this year, linked up with the boys to shoot (along with Richard Bastarache), direct and edit the video for the debut single from the EP, 'When The Chips Are Down'. The track speaks on the highs and lows of immigration, starting in a new place, and leaving your family to follow your dream.
#RoadTrippin is the first track from the EP, a soulful Hip Hop journey which encapsulates the imminent summer's carefree vibe of a bunch of friends jumping in a car and seeing where the road takes them.
Due to the fantastic response from Cee's music video for 'Comin' Home', from 'The Indie Experiment Volume 1' project, The Movement Fam decided to completely remix and remaster the entire series and rerelease the three mixtapes with a new, bigger sound, thanks to Notion's amazing engineering work.
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.
I love porn. Seriously, this is fucking hilarious. I'm usually not a fan of the produced stuff but this is looking to be comedy gold. ROFL @ Evan Stone as McBain.
This is fucking brilliant. A new social media application for bands to help each other connect with each others fans. Clearly this will appeal more to the up and comers, however it does have substantial benefits for the more established acts. Watch the video after the jump and spread the word.
Shouts to Notion for sharing this video on Facebook today. This guy is really dope. Voice is incredible. Hats off to him for trying to get heard and seen in this crazy world, even after messing with drugs and the bottle. He seems like he'd have a great story, too.
So check this out and spread the word, someone needs to give this cat a chance.
This is a bit of a long one, but Yeezy is talking some sense here. Peep dude speaking to the media on Michael Jackson, being cheated at award shows, Taylor Swift, George Bush and more. Really cool shit.
Dope. Yeezy be on some shit. His last mini-movie, 'We Were Once A Fairytale', was weird as hell and this will prolly be on the same tip. I'm excited. These cats are making music that's worth your hard earned money and for the first time in a minute, I'm actually anticipating something. Word life.
So this is some cool shit. Although I'm not really a fan of much of Swizz Beatz' latest work, dude seems to be everywhere and on damn near every record coming out. Including Snoop's sequel to his 1993 classic 'Doggystyle', called 'Doggystyle 2: The Doggumentary'. This is the album that got me into Hip Hop, so for Snoop to issue a sequel nearly 20 years later is a big call. Anyway, check the TwitVid the fellas knocked out in the lab.
So we all know Drake is a fan of blowing things out of proportion. Nicki Minaj's skills (oh check out Lil Kim's Twitter page, she goes IN on Nicki, Puffy and Drake), Jay dropping his 'greatest verse ever' on their collab 'Light Up'...and now it's the incarcerated Lil Wayne who apparently dropped his 'greatest verse ever' over the phone from Rikers Island to the same 'Light Up' joint. Check the video. Sound quality is shit, it's from a recent UStream Drizzy did to promote the album. I hear he's going to drop a full quality version soon, so stay tuned for that...
What it do, bloggers??
Peep this Kid Cudi and Kanye West 106 and Park Freestyle I saw on HipHopGame.com. Cudi smashes a smooth singy type free and 'Ye gets his arrogant on... it's dope, haha.
