Music Video: Shining Soul 'Get Up'

Published on Apr 2, 2013 Phoenix Hip Hop duo, Shining Soul, drops their first single 'Get Up' of their next full length project, Sonic Smash. Video directed by: Thug Hippy For more Shining Soul, check us at these links below:


Straight outta occupied O'odham je:wed in southern Arizona, Shining Soul is a grassroots duo based in Phoenix. Shining Soul's unique vintage means of beat production, and down to earth, empowering rhyme delivery is reminiscent of Hip-Hop's early days, when beats and rhymes took priority. Using Hip-Hop as a tool to get their voices out, Shining Soul pushes the margins by discussion issues that affect the communities they each originate from, while sharing and maintaining the essence of Hip-Hop culture that empowered them to take up arms via beats and rhymes.

In the O'odham language, it's je:wed. Meaning land.
