If you remember Kollywood movie Aadhi Bhagavan, then you would remember Canadian rap artist – Tha Prophecy, whose rap verses immediately caught the attention of many. Yes, the rap artist of Eelam origin has just dropped his latest music titled Faces.
Staying true to his style, Faces is written by Tha Prophecy himself and produced by Pravin Mani. Lyrical masterful, Faces is sort-of the rapper’s reflection of the yesteryear. The rapper touches on a variety of things in the song, ranging from relationships to success. Nonetheless, it was a line in the third verse which caught our attention – ‘Pirates of the Indian ocean’, which is most probably a reflection of his origin. With mature and honest lyrics which are explicit in nature, the song is accompanied with stunning visuals by Pras Lingam, who edited, provided cinematography and directed the music video.
Filmed in three different countries – Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and India, Faces is in collaboration with Soles & Styles. A Funky Maple production, we are loving this honest attempt by Tha Prophecy and hope it lands itself on the Canadian music charts or something.
Vassan and Jack No Entry are back on the mic again with Kaadhal, kavithai, kanni & kannadasan. The duo have released back-to-back teasers on November and December.
Music by Tactmatic with mixing and mastering by MC Vkey, the music video is directed by Soma, with Aaron and Kanu in the editing department. While making references to Veerappa, Vassan sounds amazingly good on the mic, marking his comeback to the music scene. With the late Rahna’s pictures as the background, this track might pay homage to the former member of No Entry.
We are looking forward to this song, both audio and video – as judging from the teaser, this is going to be great. The music video is slated to be released on 1st January 2015.

Indrani Kopal continues to inspire us at Thamizh Roots with her recent success in the Upstart Awards which was held in New York recently. If you’re thinking what’s the Upstart Awards all about – it is created to recognize the cultural impact and contributions recent graduates are making in arts, science, film, entrepreneurship, photography, performing arts, non-profit and fashion. Organized by Bustle and Microsoft, Indrani was selected in the film category alongside Janaya Greene. Indrani’s selection can be attributed to her highly successful documentary – The Game Changer.
The Game Changer focuses on choreographer Susan Slotnick who volunteers to teach modern dance to prisoners at the Woodbourne facility. The documentary captures the evidence that dance is able to transform the lives of these men who make significant behavioral changes, both in prison and out in the street. The Game Changer won the Best Short Documentary award at the recent Harlem International Film Festival 2014 and was also accepted into ten film festivals in the U.S.
We wish Indrani Kopal all the best and hope she continues to excel in whatever she does!
