Ferraro - I’ll Always Be There 

The Toronto-based rock group Ferarro consists of brothers Cosmo, Natale, and Gianni. Family and music intertwine for the brothers as they frequently play at the family-owned Toronto music venue, The Cameron House. Ferarro has collaborated with many Canadian rock artists but music buffs say it is their vibrant configuration that makes them stand out.

I’ll Always Be There was written with Canadian artist Ryan Guldemond (Mother Mother), a new challenge, as explained by the band: “We always wrote songs independently and then brought them to the band, so the idea of co-writing with others was completely new territory for us”. 

Directed by Brendan Bernard, the video for I’ll Always Be Ther” follows a father and daughter as they establish a bond while fixing an old car. As time carries on the daughter becomes disinterested in the project and her father gets sicker. When the father passes, the daughter makes it her mission to complete their project and remember her father as she drives into the distance. The combination of visuals and lyrics allows us to mourn with the daughter but also celebrate the time she spent with her father, making us think of the loved ones that we will always be there for.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
