NEW VIDEO: Mad Dukez & Fresh Kils “Sookie Sookie” (Directed by Dominic Luongo)

Shout out to Kils!

The second single off Gettin’ Gatsby, the critically claimed and CMJ chart topping debut album from international dynamic duo Mad Dukez & Fresh Kils, available now from Deep Thinka Records on CD, Digital Download and Limited Edition 12″ Vinyl LP.…


Mad Dukez and Fresh Kils are putting on the Ritz with the music-visual darb, “Sookie Sookie”; the second single off their critically acclaimed and chart-topping debut album, Gettin’ Gatsby.

Shot on location at the historic Birge Mansion in Buffalo, “Sookie Sookie” is a lively lesson in turning a party on its head. A dapper Dukez and plaid-clad Kils crash a mansion full of upstage partygoers frozen in time. Follow the two rebel rousers as they use their hip-hop powers to disrupt the motionless revelry. Directed by Struck Down Entertainment’s Dominic Luongo, this blow’s guestlist has your name on it. From gammy pillow fights to zozzled strip poker, Sookie Sookie hits on all sixes as a swanky good time.

“Visually, the video is heavy on the mise-en-scene, rather than leading the viewer through the story with specific cuts and sequences, the camera sorta hangs back and allows the viewer to do the editing by looking around the frame to see what’s going on,” Luongo said. “This also allows the viewer to develop their own unique video in their mind, because they might have been looking at a totally different part of the screen than the person next to them.”

NEW VIDEO: Yuri Koller – Heartbreaker (Justin Bieber Cover)

rez | Video | Saturday, October 12th, 2013

Never heard this Bieber tune but I’m fine with that. Yuri makes it sound niiiiiiiice tho! “Always” still in heavy-ro too. Shouts to Yuri man, he’s been putting in work!!!

Listen to my first single “Always” off of my upcoming project:…

This is the official music video for my “Heartbreaker” cover by Justin Bieber

My idea for doing a remake of a song in a harmonic acapella style has been long overdue, so I decided to finally do it with Justin Bieber’s new song “Heartbreaker” to give it a more Boyz II Men vibe. It worked really well in my opinion given the chords of the song that I had to work with. Once it was all done it became a personal favorite of mine.

NEW VIDEO: ELMNT “RI$K$” (Directed by BLKNXPRSS) + “Hello Jesus (America)” (Directed by ELMNT)

Ty Harper | Music,Video | Saturday, October 12th, 2013

Directed by BLKNXPRSS.

Good to see visuals for this ELMNT joint. Always felt like his flow and conviction on this beat marked a turning point in his development as an emcee/artist. Also check his visuals for “Hello Jesus (America)” after the jump!

ELMNT releases the official visuals for Ri$k$ off of his soon to be available project Stara-Nova. Teaming up with videographer BLKNXPSS, the video shoot took place at an undisclosed Buddhist Temple. Ri$k$ features an infectious Adele sample coupled with potent lyrics and production provided by ELMNT as well.

“A Catholic man on a bus asked me how a Christian Orthodox can think like a Buddhist. Simple. I chose to. I asked, if he prefers to put butter on the bottom or the top side of his sandwich. What does all your confusion boil down to? IT. Everything & Nothing. Noise & Silence. Free Will is the only thing that’s free in your existence. Go all in. RI$K$.”

NEW VIDEO: AHR Films presents David Delisca – Keep It Goin’ (Directed by Mark Valino)

Ty Harper | Music,Video | Friday, October 11th, 2013

Directed by Mark Valino.

Wow, just catching up with things after a long 24 hour night/into work morning/day/afternoon thanks to the sickness that was the Freedom Writers release party last night… and this dude Delisca would know exactly what I speak of cuz I saw him in line with the rest of us, showing that Toronto hip-hop love!

Part of the “Sounds of My City” Series (6 of 6)

Directed/Filmed/Edited by: Mark Valino
Written & Performed by: David Delisca

David’s Statement:
Keep It Goin’ comes from a guest contribution that I did for my boy Crossword’s project “Different Light” EP. A while back, Crossword asked me if I could write something about persistence and I said “yea, waddup, I gotchu” and that’s how Keep It Goin was born.

The idea for it stared during my genesis as an artist in Canada with all the adversity that was against me as a new artist trying to make a sustainable lifestyle doing what I love. As a new immigrant during that time, I had issues finding my stance while having financial issues and this is something that I am not the only one who relates to. New immigrants and new artist will suffer resistance but they are to trust their persistence and keep it goin to make it through.

I met up with the smooth playa Valino after having developed a relationship through our ties at Manifesto and I yearned to work with and then the universe like “aight, imma make this happen for ya’ll’ and then whoop, there it is.

Valino’s Log:
In February of 2013 David posted a FB status update saying that he was curious what a video artist could do with his work. Knowing that David is a hugely talented writer I took on the challange. Although it would take half a year for us to actually get together to shoot something it was a project I had in the back of my mind all through a busy summer. I picked the grange park for a bunch of different reasons. One being that I walk through this park everyday and there are so many great angles to shoot in this downtown park and so much goes on there in terms of culture. Second was because I felt it went with the theme of his piece, being about struggling artists and what better place than in between the Art Gallery of Ontario and The Ontario College of Art. Also through our Manifesto roots we decided to showcase some of the new line of clothing which also fit the theme of Art is Power. This video was roughly planned and executed with little to no plan which I try to do at least one of these shoots a year to keep my skills sharp and works as a creative exercise for me. This was shot within the span of 3hrs on a beautiful sunny day in September and fully edited in 6hrs.

Wow, Shaq’s flow on this is gaaaarbage compared to his verse on this classic, and I have no idea whether the shots at Drake are just for kicks, but hats off to ShaqIsDope for even making this happen… apparently Diesel’s been a fan of the kid since “Smooth Criminal”…


EVENT: Freedom Writers Live @ The MOD Club (“Now” Album Release Party)

rez | Events | Tuesday, October 8th, 2013


This is the only place to be Thursday night.

Congrats to Big Sproxx and the whole fam for following through and putting out a project that we’re not only anticipating but that actually contains thought-provoking messages that matter. Mans sacrifice their whole lives for this hip-hop sh*t and I can say from first hand knowledge that the members of Freedom Writers specifically have not only sacrificed to make important music as a group and throughout their individual careers but have also dedicated themselves to bettering their communities through hands on work with the youth. Salute gentlemen! Whether through your music or through your service you are actually helping to make a difference rather than just pimping this music thing for all it’s worth. Congrats again on the release and thank you for your important contributions to Toronto’s hip-hop legacy.
