Runway Richy and Trae Tha Truth Put In Work in “Made It Happen” Video
Runway Richy is a rising young MC coming out of Atlanta that has one of the hardest records out right now. "Made It Happen" featuring Trae Tha Truth, which originally dropped last month, gets visual treatment. The video finds the two southern MCs meeting up on Candler Road at the well known Atlanta restaurant China Cafeteria, a staple of the Atlanta community. Richy and Trae rap about their individual come-up stories outside of hip-hop. For both artists, they really came from the mud.
“In the trenches all day I was cappin’/Told myself when I’m broke I gotta have it/Stayed down and it’s somethin’ like magic/I made it happen,” Runway Richy raps on the hook. Shot almost exclusively in slow-motion, the video matches the soulful production of the record.
"Trae Tha Truth has been a real one from the first day we met years ago," Richy said in an recent interview. "He did a feature on my first project so initially when Kendrick44 (the producer) and I started on this record 'Made It Happen,' I automatically thought of Trae. I sent him the joint and he sent me back a video of him vibing to his verse. About three days later I ran into him at V Live in Atlanta. He texted Phillyflyboy and we shot the video the next morning. People were tripping that I had Trae Tha Truth at the China Cafeteria on Candler Road, we made it happen!"
