NEW VIDEO: Eklipz “Just DO It” (Directed by Eklipz)

Ty Harper | Music,Video | Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

Directed, filmed & edited by Eklipz.

This is a song meant to Motivate and Energize those who have been through struggle and understand what it is to have things occur in your life that take the wind out of your sails. It is a song that serves to activate the Reality that even in hardships we have no choice but to keep on Striving and to keep on Pushing on with our goals and aspirations. Kolor Brown always seems to sense when I need a beat to speak on something and comes through at the necessary times. When thinking about the visuals needed to convey the message I knew it needed a driving movement and Parkour was my choice of vehicle, with the talented Trevor De Groot who tirelessly did flips and stunts over and over to capture the required angles. Much Respect to World champion Jiu Jitsu artist Mark Simon who came through for the video. Much Love to ONE who is an Amazing young man that I know is destined for Greatness! Honor to my Crown A’ Thornz Fam who constantly push me to be a better reflection of self and to LIVE UP!

NEW MUSIC: Aaliyah feat. Drake “Enough Said” (Prod. Noah “40” Shebib)

Ty Harper | Audio,Music | Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

A very dope first taste of new posthumous music from our baby girl Aaliyah featuring OVO and 40.

There’s rumors of Drake executive producing the project but so far nothing officially confirmed. But given how influential she’s been on both him and 40’s style I think having them and Timbo/Missy involved in the project could be a great thing.
