Perfeck Strangers (Promise & Dan-e-o) just released an alternate version of "Dreams", this time featuring Sha Stimuli and Prince Po (formerly of Organized Konfusion with Pharoahe Monch). Goldentone handles the production on this one, providing a keys-laced backdrop for the emcees as Yonatan Watts lends his soulful vocals to the chorus. For all their talents, I really believe Promise and Dan-e-o deserve more recognition than they're currently receiving. The talent is undeniable, and their message is well worth sharing. Suffice it to say, I'll continue to check for them in the future. Stream and download "Dreams Pt. 2" below.
Perfeck Strangers (Promise & Dan-e-o) recently released the visuals to "Dreams", off their debut album Series Premiere - which is a free release, by the way, so you should definitely give it a download. On "Dreams", the Toronto-based duo re-imagine the assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X as if they never happened. Brooklyn emcee Wordsworth joins them on a verse, and Yonatan Watts lends his soulful vocals to the chorus. Watch the Andre Rehal-directed visuals below.
"The block got hot/ Right before I thought he woulda got shot, he dodged it/ Guess God wanted him to keep talkin'/ He said, 'I had a dream, but it wasn't for me, Promise/ When I leave all this, I'm gonna need unique artists/ To grab the mic, and speak knowledge.'" - Promise
If you were at the Boot Camp show during Manifesto you would have seen Toronto emcee & Duck Down Records artist Promise open for them. He has collaborated with everyone from Shad, Royce Da 5`9, Elzhi, Rhymefest, & Drake. This video is for a track off his latest LP Awakening. Check the full post for another video, from his group Perfeck Strangers with Dan-e-o, called "Ghetto".
