really glad to share this new video for progress (part 1: american pie, part 2: the future is here) – a song about culture and empire and feelings i cant quite explain… heres a note from director justin broadbent:
“The death of music is similar to the death of visual art. The online, numb, browsing experience has (naturally) started to effect the current state of art. We’ve become a Tumblr’d culture, over Googled, educated and bored in 4 seconds or shorter.
“I made a non-music video for Shad’s “Progress”. It’s a website. It’s a comment on the state of art and also maybe the only video that could attach to such an intensely accurate and poignant song for our generation. It is like the movie credits to now. Tumblr on.”
Off D’s upcoming “The Great Mr. Nobody” mixtape.

As Toronto artist Tona continues to prepare for the release of his upcoming album ‘CARPE DIEM’, he has followed up the recent release of “Ol Time Sake” with the visuals for “HOOKER”, a promo single that will not appear on the album. The song, produced by Lyve and with co-production from Tona himself, features fellow Up-North rhyme slayer Sese. Whether you interpret the track literally or figuratively speaking, it’s undeniably raw and uncut expression either way. Be on the lookout for the release of ‘CARPE DIEM’s first official single, as well as more information regarding the project set to be released in the upcoming weeks.
