Paying homage to the Clan, Toronto rapper JD Era recently dropped “Wu Tang Forever,” a remix of the promotional single from Drake’s latest album, Nothing Was The Same. The Ice H20 signee shows his respect by utilizing wordplay and lyrics, further proving why he’s one of the best in the game. After receiving a Juno Nomination for his mixtape, No Handouts this year, it’s only fitting to end 2013 on a high note. JD Era will be headlining a 7 stop “Do You Know Mary” tour in December. This remix of “Wu Tang Forever” will serve as the introduction to the release and video of his new single “Do You Know Mary”.
Although this is technically an advertisement for HP computers, it also features hip hop producer Clams Casino and Chicago, Illinois artist, Vic Mensa.

The final product was titled, “Egyptian Cotton.” Check out the creative visuals below and let us know what you think of the commerical in the comments section.
