Josh Martinez is "Going Back To Hali" 

In video format, anyway

Josh Martinez - Going Back to Hali w Classified, Skratch Bastid

Josh Martinez came back to Halifax with a mission in mind, film his new video or freeze trying. Martinez’s “Going Back To Hali” (with Classified and Skratch Bastid, directed by Cazhmere) brought him back east from his Portland, Oregon home for a visit with family, friends and some scenic Haligonian landmarks. Funded by VideoFact (Martinez points out that this is his first successful VideoFact application in 42 attempts), the video is an homage to LL Cool J’s “Going Back to Cali,” shot with plenty of scenes as a tribute to the original. Just replace Citadel Hill, Pier 21, the waterfront and the MacDonald Bridge for various Californian sun-drenched locales, rows of ladies dancing on phone booths and the Midway Diner, of course. The only thing missing was California’s balmy weather. Says Martinez, “It was the most cold I've felt in my balls ever.” Fair enough. See if you can notice his discomfort in the video.
