Yoga instructor, writer and hip-hop artist MC YOGI has teamed up with Matisyahu for his latest music video “Heaven is Here.” He premiered the video over at The Hype along with an interview. Speaking about the song during the interview, he said “‘Heaven Is Here’ means appreciating and acknowledging the everyday blessings and kindness of man in this world. We all have our ups and downs and life struggles when things get bleak, our lives lose meaning, and we feel real despair. Then sometimes we get a glimpse of ‘heaven’ in a stranger’s look of acknowledgment in their eye when they pass us, or a kind word from a friend, or a smile of child.” You can watch the video above.
The song comes from his latest album, Only Love is Real. He released his debut book “Spiritual Graffiti,” about his journey through life and how yoga and music helped shape the person he is today last year. He supported the release with a brief book tour. He’s also in the studio with Howard Benson working on his next release.
MC YOGI will make various appearances at different festivals and Yoga events throughout the year. Check out the full itinerary here.
Earlier this year, he made an appearance on Dhanya’s single “Another Lifetime,” taken from her debut LP.
