Big Shug – Stay the Course


Hit the streets of Boston with the city’s own legendary Big Shug in his slick new video for “Stay The Course,” a soulful and contemplative burner off his new LP, The Diamond Report.


Featuring direction from Ill Mannered Films (Redman, Cypress Hill), the video centers on the Gang Starr Foundation member and, more importantly, his rhymes. While there are some clever edits and additional touches that bring life to the visuals, they mostly serve to send home the message in Shug’s words.


He brings wisdom and positivity with his bars that essentially advise the listener to learn from life’s obstacles and just keep it moving forward. There’s an authentic and personable level of clarity to the entire track that makes Shug’s lyrics resonate that much more. Plus, it’s all backed by a great instrumental produced by Elevated Music, who’s joined on The Diamond Report by DJ Premier, Lil Fame, and Kid Called Quest, among others.


Check out the visuals, and head over to your preferred digital retailer or streaming platform to support, The Diamond Report, which is also available on CD through Get On Down, Brick Records
