The latest video from Northwest Division is one of the deeper tracks belonging to their latest album R.B.P.H. The black and white visuals for “Those Eyes” have Hungry and Junk spitting verses about the relationship between father and son – specifically Hungry dedicates his verse to his son and Junk to his father.
The theme came about unplanned as the two organically wrote their verses to the ENG beat and ended up with the father, son topic of rhyme. “Those Eyes” is an exceptional showcase of the pair’s skills but is also an emotionally relatable realty check. Check the video below.
Ariano Releases new video “Armor”. The second single off his upcoming singer/song writer Ep “Sad Songs Make Me Happy” out this summer on Camobear Records. The new video directed by Wackoe Films.
“Armor” is a mid tempo song with a smooth break beat & guitar chopped up written & produced by Ariano. The song showcases Ariano’s production and writing while blending his melodic singing with a raspy flow. The video on it’s own tells a story of a young woman battling with the decision of making money by sharing herself in order to keep the bills paid.
Following the release of the chilling visuals for “Pride”, Matt Brevner is back again with another original video drop; this time for “Dark Side of the Moon” featuring bsharp mate, Tom MacDonald.
“When Tom and I wrote the song, we knew that there was only one visual concept that would do the track justice,” said Brevner. “The video is a representation of how far we’ve come as artists, and how much further there is to go.”
“Im really happy to be one of the first rappers to shoot a video in space, really. It was expensive but it was rad,” said MacDonald.
Off of The Bushido Project, the video is directed by David McDonald. As with his previous work, Brevner’s second installment of the summer continues to showcase his commitment to maintain artistic integrity across his work.

Fresh off the release of his album …Note The Sarcasm, East coast Canadian rapper Mike Boyd has come through with the fourth single from the project titled, “This Ain’t Funny”. Featuring his Juno-award winning brother Classified, the video finds Boyd and Class as over-the-top hillbillies confronting a group of rich kids littering beer cans in the backwoods. Playing off his Nova Scotia roots, the video is an absurd showcase of Boyd’s comedic sensibilities and wry lyrical wit.
