You+Me – Break the Cycle

This is such a good song. Peeped this video on the late night on Much Music at the crib, and it floored me! You+Me is the collaboration between Canadian musician-singer-songwriter Dallas Green and Alecia Moore, better known as Pink. Great song about breaking the cycle of whatever you’re dealing with/hanging on/addicted to… we all deal with some shit. Beautifully put..

You+Me – “Break The Cycle”

Yelawolf – Till It’s Gone (video)

New video for Yelawolf’s song “Till It’s Gone”.. I’m really feeling this joint but the video, meh… it’s aiight. Lots of tattoos and slow motion clips though. That’s kinda cool I guess.

Even if the video is a little luke warm, something that’s guaranteed to be scorching hot will be Yela’s live show with Rittz, Big Henry, DJ Klever and Northwest Division on Nov. 15th at Venue in Vancouver. The city is buzzing for this show already, it’s going to be mad hype! Event info: Yelawolf@Venue-Vancouver
