Relax With This New MV from Kore Ionz x Prometheus Brown – “First Avenue”

I personally love coming across artists that I haven’t heard before, and the band Kore Ionz is no exception. The Hawaiian group has released the music video for their song “First Avenue” off of World War Free, featuring one of my favorite MCs, Prometheus Brown aka Geo of Blue Scholars. The song may be a couple years old but better late than never right? Plus, I likely may not have heard the single had they not dropped the video.
