Canada’s Hip Hop sensation Righteous releases visuals for his new single “For the Love.” The single/video features Recognize Ali, the late Faith Walker, and DJ Mercilless and is taken from Righteous’ EP titled ‘Be Conscious Of.’
For those not familiar (shame on them) Righteous curates real, raw, feel-good music authentic to Hip Hop and the culture. He does it “for the love” which is evident watching the video. He is from an era of classics, a time when rhymes carried substance…20 years later he can’t be thrown off by gimmicks or trends, he’s too vetted. Although it’s “for the love” don’t get it twisted, Righteous runs this microphone survival of the fittest…
On the hook is celebrated R&B vocalist Faith Walker (RIP) who accentuates the lyricism with passionate, soulful melodies sure to raise neck hairs. DJ Mercilless comes through with classic cuts and scratches.
“For the Love” revives Hip Hop, the culture along with the 5 elements and is a reminder that the boom-bap era continues to thrive. Watch “For the Love” and stream/download ‘Be Conscious Of’ EP here on Bandcamp.
