42nd Street is a tourist’s haven and a native New Yorker’s worst nightmare. In his latest visuals, Your Old Droog hit forty-deuce disguised as the stereotypical crazies you meet in Midtown- you know the “upcoming” rapper who won’t let you walk by without listening to his mixtape, the sketchy hot dog seller, and even a creepy breakdancing Elmo.
In an interview with Complex, the Brooklyn lyricist describes the Jonah Schwartz directed “42 (Forty Deuce)” as:
“A song that’s literally been in the making for over a decade. Wanted to flip this sample since ’05 and I finally brought it to a producer and got the job done,” Droog told us over email. “It’s about a special place I really used to frequent back in the days. The video is a halfway glimpse into that and my halfway breakdancing skills. ‘Yo, you listen to hip hop?!'”
Hopefully, 2016 will bring more bars over classic samples from Your Old Droog. Checkout his most current project, The Nicest EP and watch the visuals to “42 ( Forty Duece)” below:
