It’s funny because I just took in this interview with De La Soul the other day and this video totally reminded me of something Dave said (1:30 mark) about when they made the “Buddy” video. Love that that spirit is still alive and well despite all the bullsh*t that’s out there…

Anyways…some BTS jokes from tha ladies. “Soul Runner” on repeat.

Behind the scenes with “The Toddler”, aka pHoenix Pagliacci.

Been watching Class of ’93 since their debut and kinda feel like the duo’s (emcee KZARAW – producer Mega) potential is just sitting there waiting for more people to finally notice. Not to mention, seeing three great female Toronto emcees together on a cut is still such a frickin’ rarity, I’d even argue that their chemistry with A. Harmony and pHoenix might be worthy of a bit more official and strategic exploration (no pressure tho!).

Take in this crew’s previous releases and the formula they’re building with is pretty clear – good hops, rooted in the art’s fundamentals, and the experiences of the city they live in, with no real sign of pretense.

Honestly, it’s singles like this and this that make me miss doing OTA Live! sooo much. *tear drop*

VIDEO: Zaki Ibrahim – Chante-la Ta Chanson (CSHF / CBC Covered Classics)

rez | Video | Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

This month, the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame (CSHF) welcomes Chante-la ta chanson written by Jean Lapointe and Marcel Lefebvre into the Hall of Fame. To celebrate the induction, Canadian-born R&B, soul and jazz singer-songwriter and Juno nominee, Zaki Ibrahim, puts a unique spin on this timeless classic as part of the CSHF and CBC/Radio-Canada’s Covered Classics series.

Songwriter Marcel Lefebvre was driving back from his family cottage on a Sunday night when the words and melody for Chante-la ta chanson came to him almost spontaneously. “I thought to myself, my god I have a hit!” Marcel told an interviewer. “I didn’t have my tape recorder on me and so my kids and I sung it the whole drive home so that I wouldn’t forget it.”

Shortly thereafter, Lefebvre contacted Jean Lapointe with whom he had been writing songs for a few years. They each took turns adding phrases and melodic lines, and together completed the chorus and verses. Chante-la ta chanson was released on Lapointe’s 1979 solo album recorded at Montréal’s famed Studio Tempo. The song first appeared on the Radio Mutuel chart on May 4, 1979, and stayed there for 7 weeks, quickly becoming a classic in Lapointe’s repertoire.

Its simple and memorable melody made Chante-la ta chanson an undeniable favourite of choirs and instrumentalists alike. The most famous cover, however, is the 1978 version by Les Compagnons de la Chanson, which made the song a huge hit in Francophone Europe as well. It was also one of the very first songs ever recorded by a young Celine Dion. Chante-la ta chanson became a SOCAN Classic (for accumulating 25,000 radio plays) in 1995.

Born in 1935, Jean Lapointe co-founded popular music duo Les Jérolas at age 20 with composer, guitarist and comedian Jérôme Lemay, which enjoyed a successful 15-year career. Lapointe then turned to acting in movies, and has been featured in more than thirty films. Lapointe returned to music in 1975 and had 25 years of success, collaborating mainly with his friend Marcel Lefebvre. In 1982, he founded Maison Jean-Lapointe, an organization that operates addiction treatment rehab centres. He was also a senator from 2001 to 2010.

Born in in 1941, Marcel Lefebvre was first interested in studying philosophy, but switched to music in the early ’60s. While still in school, he wrote songs for Marc Gélinas, Renée Claude and Dominique Michel, and penned many French adaptations of Anglophone hits. He also wrote screenplays and scored several movies in the early ‘70s. He began collaborating with Jean Lapointe in 1975; over the next 40 years, the pair wrote more than 100 songs together. Lefebvre has devoted most of his attention in recent years to his other passion: painting.

In the video below, watch Zaki Ibrahim pay tribute to Jean Lapointe and Marcel Lefebvre with her captivating and uniquely arranged rendition of the song Chante-la ta chanson.
