(Toronto) Canada's Godfather of Hip Hop Maestro Fresh Wes, teams up with legendary MC and icon Kool Keith of the Ultra Magnetic MC's on this soon-to-be classic banger produced by Lord Quest.
The new single, SKYSCRAPERS, embodies the essence of Hip Hop with beats and bars that resonate with fans of all ages, and is the next release from Maestro's latest album, COACH FRESH.
In the song, Maestro states: "I'm looking for the Leaders, but all I see is Followers; Followers turn into Borrowers, Borrowers turn into Swallowers....Suckers lowered the bar, that's why we raised it!"; a call out for innovators to step up and represent in a culture, that is currently saturated with mediocrity.
Using Toronto's CN Tower and New York City's Empire State buildings as the points of references, Wes and Keith deliver hard-hitting, thought provoking verses on this track while elevating this single to the level of CLASSIC. The video is an awe-inspiring ride from Toronto to New York, featuring two icons on the microphone. Directed by Gee-Bee (also Director of Wu-Tang video classics Da Mystery of Chessboxin' and M.E.T.H.O.D Man), the visuals for SKYSCRAPERS work hand-in-hand with the lyrics to stimulate the mind. You can give the SKYSCRAPERS video a watch below.
