This is an unreleased project from 2011. Straight out of the Valino vault. I had been invited to one of Saidah Baba Talibah’s rehearsal sessions back in February of 2011 and I had the idea to start a series of rehearsal sessions showcasing the thought and energy that an artist goes through in order to prepare for a show. I thought it was a good idea because in these sessions I wanted audiences to catch a glimpse of these colorful artists in their creative environment. This video got shelved for a number of reasons but mostly because I couldn’t get a hold of the audio from the board for the show that she performed at and the concert footage was shot on a DSLR , the audio was unsalvagable. I love this slice of Saidah’s trials with keeping a band together as a struggling indie act and, from show to show, how she creates with her setlists. I feel Saidah widely talented artist and a polished and confident Toronto music act just waiting to blow up. I truely appreciated the chance to catch an inside look into her world and I’m honored to have been able to work with an artist of her caliber.
SFA media caught up with Toronto’s own Blake Carrington at the SEYA fundraiser last night. We sat down and spoke about his new movie project, fatherhood and the importance of community events. In this Clip Blake talks about the values obtained through travel. Full interview coming soon!!

Based on true events, Do You Want a BOX?! details the day to day events of a community worker confronted with problems left and right, trying to stay calm and cool no matter what obstacles may arise. THEO3 is a Toronto based community worker and Hip Hop artist. Something different to meditate on. Graphic courtesy of Martial Artistik.
Happy New Year! I can’t believe it but it’s somehow the future all over again…
Ok BIG ANNOUNCEMENT. Late last year I started a little imprint called Silk Ivory. Today I’m excited to say that my new imprint has partnered with Universal Music to release my debut solo album The Pyramid Scheme on March 13th (plus a whole ton of other really crazy amazing projects in the not-so-distant future). It’s been a longtime coming and it feels great to be working side-by-side with such esteemed company!
With THAT said, I present to you my new video “Webslinger“. It’s a pretty unique, uncanny & fuckin’ ill (if I may say so myself) visual interpretation to this Simahlak produced anthem.
About the Video:
Webslinger is a lyrical assault produced by Simahlak, backed with a video directed by Adrian Parks and Pyramid, himself, with co-direction and set design by Johnny Nghiem. The clip contains some dangerously appropriate visuals, centered around a tarantula crawling loose across a woman’s naked, heavily tattooed body. Feel free to post the video on your blogs, Tumblr & websites.I’m about to pop off and live on the road for the next little while so make sure you scream at me via email, Twitter or Facebook and as always thank you for the support.
