New York City’s Troy Ave is gearing up for the release of his next project, the fittingly titled New York City, on November 4, and today he’s released a new video that takes us behind the scenes of the video shoot for the album’s booming title track. Unsurprisingly, it looks like a very New York-centric affair.
The clip finds Troy hanging out with his collaborator Raekwon, goofing around with some of the women in the video, being interviewed by MTV and generally just having a blast. Mostly, he’s celebrating his city.
“I remember growing up you were proud to be from New York,” he tells an interviewer in the clip. “New York set the trends. Fashion, music, everything. And we’ve gotta bring it back to that.”
