[Video] George Stroumboulopoulos Presents All Star Medley- “Christmas In Hollis” Cover
This has to be the best video I've seen today and it's all thanks to George Stroumboulopoulos who put together an all-star medley for his Christmas Eve Special. The cast includes Pete Rock, Kardinal Offishall, Deltron 3030, Camp Lo, Shad, Maestro, Jully Black, SonReal, Michie Mee, Eternia and Dan-e-o who cover Run D.M.C. "Christmas In Hollis." The Christmas special is airing on December 24th 11:30pm on CBC TV and if you live in Toronto or Vancouver, it'll also air on December 25 at 5 p.m. The timing is perfect as we are less than a few days away and I'm so glad that I can play this on The Come Up Show Radio today there is nothing better than new Christmas Hip-Hop music. Take the video in below and let me know if it brought a smile to your face like it did to mine and who is your favourite emcee in the video?
[Video] Eternia ft. pHoenix Pagliacci – “Final Offering” (Dir: Alex Narvaez)
"Woke up with this track in my head, I got the itch again/ I missed the bus 'cause I was bumpin' this, I won't pretend/ Been through a couple of my nine lives since we last met/ Here's hoping Cole and Kendrick understand I gotta vent/ I got a pen, I got a head full of convoluted cloudy days, let it rain/ Let it sting the conscious of those who went on inflicting pain." - EterniaThis. is. huge. Eternia just dropped her first music video in over two years for "Final Offering", a tribute to Kendrick Lamar's "HiiiPower". The visuals, directed by Alex Narvaez, take us through Kensington Market as Eternia lets loose on the mic - and I mean lets loose. The Ottawa-raised emcee sounds as inspired as ever over J. Cole's production, marking her return to music as she opens up on everything from self doubts to questions about the meaning of life. For more on Eternia, make sure to check out our interview with her. Check out the visuals to "Final Offering" and read the track breakdown below.
Unloading a hailstorm of questions pointed at herself, God, her family, her friends, and her very purpose, 'Final Offering' tackles the lows of life, a topic most people avoid with repression and distractions. Eternia dives in, unafraid to reveal her insecurities and self doubt while challenging the very tenets of faith and foundation of family that she was raised on. She is joined by pHoenix Pagliacci, a burgeoning triple-threat in the Canadian music scene, who soars on this track with a poignant reminder to Eternia, and anyone else who is experiencing similar lows, of what "HiiiPower" really is.Let us know what you think of "Final Offering" in the comments section.
