F1JO Delivers a New York Anthem With “I’m From Queens” Video
Ear Drummers' F1JO gives Queens an anthem with his new record and video. After gaining some attention with his club-ready "No Beer" banger, F1JO returns with a gritty visual for "I'm From Queens," a record that his beloved borough will love.
"A lot of people don't know that I lived in Atlanta for a long portion of my life. That's where I got the 808 side and the down south kind of flavor to my music, living down there and touring with Gucci and Waka," he said in a recent interview. "'Queens' is one of those anthems that just lets the world know where I'm coming from, and I'm proud of it. It's a hometown pride record where I get to rep the city that raised me."
The visuals are pretty simple. Directed by Matt Swinsky, viewers watch F1JO walking around the streets and the narrow hallways of Jamaica Queens, home to 50 Cent, Nicki Minaj, LL Cool J, Russell Simmons, Run-D.M.C., Ja Rule, Onyx and more.
The rapper/producer has worked with artists like Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka Flame, Rae Sremmurd, LL Cool J, Dej Loaf and Dave East. Keep a look out for him at SXSW next week.
