Camille Safiya “Phunky Philly”

First I wanna say that Camille is an extraordinary artist and she has a powerful and chilling voice when she sings. Fred Focus is a true visionary and the images he captured in this video are beyond explanation.

I wanna bring forth my thoughts on one particular part. When the black and white scene of Camille on the porch with the dog comes on I swear my heart skipped a beat. I almost forgot I was watching a music video on my iPhone. I for a second believed I had travelled back in time and was watching a real image of some 1930’s back alley shanty town performance.

This is by far the best work I’ve seen from these two artists, in regards to them working together. I know the both of them personally and would like them to know I’m deeply proud to have been graced by their artistic presences’ in my lifetime. I hope to see more collaborations between them and riveting and provocative works of art in the near and later future.
