DO the ROB FORD!

ROBFORD3med-WEB3

So UP & UP put IAN KETEKU and PHIL MOTION in a room together and this is what happened!  Keteku, the 2010 Slam Poet World Champion met tête-à-tête with Motion, a.k.a Philippe Lafreniere of twice Juno-nominated Souljazz Orchestra to lay-down this little gem, an original cross-over of funk and hip-hop reminding you that…

DO THE ROB FORD!

“There are not many things one should learn from Rob Ford. But sometimes, when the world has you down, when you feel there is no where to go, when all life is handing you lemons – it is important to remember that there is always a way out. That we can laugh away our sorrows, be ridiculous just because. Rob Ford represents a lot of bad things but we feel the one thing we can take away from his example, is letting go. Go all out, without regard or hesitation.” – Ian Keteku.

If you wanna get it crackin’ just do the Rob Ford!
