You might have heard of Toronto rappers Keysha Freshh, Lex Leosis, Haviah Mighty and Phoenix Pagliacci (The Sorority) eight months back in the first all female TeamBackPack cypher that dropped on International Women’s Day.
They have come together again, now known as The Sorority for their track “Undun” and they dropped the visuals for it a week ago. Once again, all of them come correct in this video; filmed at Kops Records downtown Toronto, a record store known for having the most experienced and oldest vinyls–including old school hip-hop. The four of them pay homage to a lot of the greats; including Wu-Tang Clan, A Tribe Called Quest, Big Pun, Tupac, Ice Cube, Lauryn Hill, Prince, Whitney, Eminem, Biggie Smalls, Eazy E and J-Dilla plus more.
Keysha raps about how before trap music it was about the boom bap and if you didn’t come correct correct with the bars, you were whack. Lex spits about how she wishes Phife from ATCQ was still alive and how phony rappers only live a lie, while she can never stop rapping due to her old school influences and inspirations. Haviah reminisces on the greats and how we learn from them in today’s world, giving props to the legends, and Phoenix states that legends never die because their music lives on forever, and when she passes there’s no need to cry because she too will be with the greatest and people will be listening to her music too.
Overall, they each spit about the legends in their own authentic way, allowing the track to come together perfectly with all of their vibes syncing as one. As always, the chemistry with these four is consistently dope.
