Phonte ft. Median - Eternall

Feels Like: Little Brother, 9th Wonder, A Tribe Called Quest, Consequence, De La Soul

Phonte and Median's "Eternal" dropped last summer. However, you wouldn't know that by looking at the video. The Tribe-like back and forth MC tradeoff along with the rotating panoramic views of the duo putting down rhymes and selling records in a suburban park setting (possibly making a statement to rap's largest market segment) reminds me of a Souls of Mischief post we had a while back and has me pegging this video for the late 90's. Nonetheless, the duo kill it on the old school vibe,that I yearn for so much in modern Hip-Hop. My favorite part of the video has got to be around the 2:00 mark when the beat breaks, only to be brought back in by Phonte getting his high five reciprocated by a random park-goer. Pick out your favorite moment of the video here and grab his debut solo album, 2011's "Charity Starts At Home".
