Ill Conscious feat. Cyn Hawkes- The Pledge

Dopeness from Ill Conscious feat. my home girl Cyn Hawkes. Jay Mastermind made a dope vid too. I love the shots of Ill in the bus.

From Ill Conscious:

“‘The Pledge’ is a track based on the betterment of a people.  It preaches liberation, the uplifting of the youth and just rising above hardships & modern oppression of the 21st century.  It portrays a militant feel, yet gives off a very positive, triumphant message.  ‘The Pledge’ also epitomizes what true and expressive hip hop is all about. I am optimistic that many people growing up in tough environments and those who have suffered mentally, physically, as well as economically, will gravitate to this song and video. “

I’ve heard these tracks a million times but I’ve been playing this all morning. Give it a listen below and let us know what you think in the comments. And definitely keep your ears and eyes out for Cyn Hawkes!
