On his single, Star Wars, Canadian hip-hop artist Tha Vor gets deep as he laments about the power struggle taking place on the spiritual plane. Using references from the Book of Enoch, Tha Vor (when explaining the inspiration behind the song) says: “rulers and leaders above our perception engage in a war, basically a fight for power.”
The official video for Star Wars was released on September 10th. Shot by Die Fire Films, a Toronto production company, the video is extremely captivating as it takes viewers on a suspense filled journey.
Fans and supporters of Tha Vor should pay attention because this will be the first video from an upcoming project that will include 4 other videos, with the end result being a 5 part mini movie based on his life.

At the end of August Pusha-T dropped his new single entitled “Coming Home” featuring the one and only Ms. Lauryn Hill. The record, which was produced by Kanye West, created a lot of buzz when it first came out, but that was due in part to the names on the project.
If you are a real hip-hop lover I encourage you to listen to the actual lyrics of the song. Everyone on the project delivered in a major way: the beat is amazing, Pusha-T came strong and Ms. Lauryn Hill showed us why she does not need to voice frequently.
