CHRIS VANCE – EVERY SINGLE DAY feat. Chill Moody (@ChillMoody) & Jacqueline Constance (@jacqconmusic88)

One of the more heralded records from Chris Vance’s 2014 mixtape, “Doom City: Last of The Best”, the video for this song is LONG overdue. Unfortunately, production of it was halted when Vance was injured in December 2014. That injury wound up being a blessing in disguise, as the visual is a 100% true representation of the injury and how Vance has had to operate for the last five months while awaiting bi-lateral quadricep surgery. Enlisting Philly’s top independent hip-hop artist in Chill Moody and soul songstress Jacqueline Constance, Vance illustrates, with a nod to Snoop Dogg’s “Gin and Juice”, how life goes in the midst of struggle… You still have to show up, EVERY SINGLE DAY. Check the vid out below! Below that is the Soundcloud link. Enjoy!

Phlight School is very appreciative of all who came to our first headlining event at The Fire. You rocked out with us inside and outside the venue, and through sound problems with the tripped wire! You cheered, and knew more words than we would have imagined (cc: Hook, and Last of the Best). Much love to J. Dilla’s mom who traveled with Emperess to Philly and stayed through the end! THANK YOU. Thank you, thank you!!! The Phlight Plan would not have been anything without you.

Chris Vance – Doom City: Last of the Best (The Preview.5)

“I have been working on and promoting ‘DOOM CITY: LAST OF THE BEST’ for the better part of a year now, with this being the second and final installment of ‘The Preview’. I decided to drop it on my birthday because last year on this same day, I swore to myself that I would take my music and this grind seriously.” – Vance

This 10-track mixtape is not really a ‘PREVIEW’ in the sense that you’ll see these on the actual mixtape, in fact, quite the opposite. Of the 15 tracks that make up ‘The Preview’ and ‘The Preview.5′, only Hood Rich feat. Chill Moody, Mazon & Sela (The Preview) and What I Shoot For feat. Jeide Prince & I-Know Brasco (The Preview.5) will appear on this fall’s “Doom City: Last of the Best”. This mixtape features a number of tracks which have been long awaiting release. For instance:

WHAT THEY TALKIN’ BOUT – Originally a collaboration between Vance & long-time friend and producer Raak (Team Anigma), this track was given to Gilbere Forte (who, in turn, enlisted Peedi Crakk for the feature) for use on his “Eyes of Veritas” release. Now, Vance reworks his verse and calls on Philly legend Reef the Lost Cauze to officially release his version of the record.

BITCH – A very different song for Vance, this song was originally recorded as a studio joke over Amy Winehouse’ “Back to Black”, but with a few minor tweaks, became so enchanting that the decision was made to put it on the project.

1 TRAIN TO PHILLY – The mega-track over ASAP Rocky’s “One Train” that features Phlight School’s BLACK CLOUD group (Vance, Jeide, Chev V. Kaang & Emperess) alongside Antwan Davis (EST, P3), WiSh (College > Prison, Dub Caesar), Voss (BET 106 & Park Freestyle Friday Hall-of-Famer, CORFU) & Newz Huddle (RMG).

“I’ve been working on a bunch of music and collaborating with a bunch of dope artists, so it’s only right that I give away these 10 tracks on a day when I’m shown so much love. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you – DOOM CITY: LAST OF THE BEST (THE PREVIEW.5)!!” – Vance

“Doom City: Last of the Best”, presented by Phlight School and hosted by Ace McClowd, is due out this fall.

On June 5th, Tayyib Ali and Mr. Lif descended on The Blockley (38th & Ludlow streets, Philadelphia, PA) with Pooda Dappa, Michael Mile High and (Phlight School’s) Chris Vance designated as openers. The whole show was a success, but as many onlookers would tell you, Vance’s set was the standout moment of the night. Check out a couple of pics we snapped along with Chris Vance’s performance of “Brave”!

“For me, when I first heard this instrumental, I immediately knew I was entering the competition… Not really because I wanted to win, but because the instrumental was so dope that it was literally pulling the rhymes out of me. Those that know me personally know that I’ve been dealing with a ton of personal issues lately, so this was like therapy when I wrote it. Got to get a lot of shit off my chest, as well as say goodbye to a dear friend gone too soon. I told Brandon (owner/operator of Hip Hop Since 1987) personally that I didn’t care if I won or lost. This song means entirely too much to me. I hope ya’ll enjoy listening to it as much as it helped me to write and record it. Thanks for listening!

– Vance”

This track, produced by Sarom Soundz, will appear on Chris Vance’s upcoming “DOOM CITY: LAST OF THE BEST” mixtape, due out this Spring.

PS: CATCH VANCE AND THE REST OF PHLIGHT SCHOOL AT THE BARBARY THIS WEDNESDAY FOR “GET ILLEGAL”!! NO COVER!! COME OUT FOR A DOPE TIME!!
