SKYZOO & PETE ROCK – IT’S ALL GOOD [VIDEO]

Skyzoo and Pete Rock add visuals to the pounce of “It’s All Good” from their forthcoming Retropolitan album.

“The video, directed by Sen Floyd, shows a raw but vibrant scene of the NY that Pete and I know” Skyzoo said to Vibe.  “The graffiti, the color schemes, city folk cutting by in between shots, even the industrial feel that peaks it’s head in the camera at times, all of it, along with the shots of the corners and 22 story buildings that define NY, are what we know of the city. It matches the essence of the song perfectly. One of my favorite videos to date for what it depicts and represents.”

Retropolitan drops on September 20

MURS & 9TH WONDER – GOD BLACK / BLACK GOD [VIDEO]

If you managed to miss out on The Iliad Is Dead & The Odyssey is Over, go back and find it. In the interim, Murs delivers the absolute goods alongside 9th Wonder from their Brighter Daze album with a video for “God Black / Black God.”

“This song is a few years old, but it’s always been the people’s choice from the Brighter Daze project,” Murs says. “And it’s perfect timing because I think the first verse of this song is really resonating with folks right about now; with all the losses and gains our community has experienced over the past few years.”
