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. “

Hip Hop Video: Rome Cee – Illusions of Love

Rome Cee – Illusions Of Love(87 Conceptions) from Pascal 4ED on Vimeo.

New shit from Rome Cee and a video that strikes the right chord. I originally heard this song a while ago and I liked it right off the bat. I mean what a catchy ass hook! The drums on this joint stutter and knock around while synths come in and then it breaks down to the piano for the verses and Rome shines. The video is dope too. Has a definite cinematic quality. You can definitely seen the progress that 87 Conceptions (Pascal and Jay Mastermind) have made in their video production on this one.
