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...

"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.

Poet Ian Keteku is an award winning artist committed to using words as both an interpretation and cure for the human condition. Keteku is also the 2010 World Poetry Slam Champion. He has performed his poetry and music all over the world and continues to plant seeds of poetic justice globally.

Phil Motion is an artist and producer mashing up dirty funk 45rpm style recording bringing together funk, soul, latin and hip-hop influences with his band Phil Motion & The Easy LO-Fi, featuring some members of Souljazz Orchestra.
