December 1st CROWS: As The Crow Flies remixes, reboots and alternative versions.
Abstract Artform x Mumbles x Co-pilot have joined forces to bring you a redux of the As The Crow Flies album available December 1st.
Stay tuned for more information.
Abstract Artform is fresh off a month long tour to Halifax and being away from making beats was getting him antsy so now you have 20 new instrumentals for your ears to get things rollin’!!! Hit him up online @AbstractArtform on Twitter or via Facebook!
After a crazy summer of touring, releases and natural disasters – both via Abstract Artform’s ‘As The Crow Flies Tour’ and The Movement Fam’s #RoadTrippin‘ Summer Tour 2013 – we can finally cool out and drop this video on y’all.
The second show of Abstract Artform (Shea Malcolmson), Relic (Rel McCoy) and Ambition’s (Joseph Ward) tour landed them in Montreal, which happened to be Cee and Notion‘s (Bradley Notion Thorn) tour kick off. And since they were all in town at the same time, it was only right that the boys linked on a cut, so they enlisted Shane Russell of 9Block Productions to get behind the camera and make it all happen.
Produced by Abs himself, ‘Perfect Definition’ is the culmination of a cross-Canadian Hip Hop movement – Abstract is from Winnipeg, Ambition hails from Halifax, DJ Grouch (who graciously laced the track with his signature cuts) reps Toronto, and Cee is posted up in Montreal. The choppy sample is complemented by tough deliveries, solid bars from all three MCs and Grouch’s Primo-style hook puts the nail in the coffin. Hip Hop at its rawest, y’all.
The video was shot on picturesque Rue St. Denis right before the show at Cafe Chaos on June 14th. DJ Grouch didn’t make it to the 514 so he wasn’t able to be in the video, though you can catch a guest appearance by the homie Relic
behind the decks.

We’re also filming the trip and will be posting up footage daily!! Be sure to keep up to date on my Twitter and social media!! It could get pretty wild on the open road.” comments Abstract Artform.
