New York City is the Mecca of Hip-Hop, period. With all respect to cities like Atlanta, Chicago and L.A., nobody does Rap quite like The Big Apple. It’s why after so many years, the genre anoints Brooklynites Jay-Z and The Notorious B.I.G. as it’s marquee wordsmiths. Granted, the city has lost some of its lust since Jigga’s last album but you can’t deny the new generation’s wave of talent coming in. From Joey Bada$$ to Young MA, all the way to A$AP Mob and Dave East – the city is in good hands. Looking to join the ranks of the boroughs’ elite is PYP Records signee, Downtown Dolla — who’s an affiliate of Dave East — with his new visual for, “Anotha One.”
Taking the infamous DJ Khaled adlib and flipping it into a tale about moving weight and making it out is no small task. Throughout the video, Dolla rides around the lower East-side of New York City, looking for a way to pass the time, effectively. Dolla’s nostalgic flow and ability to seamlessly swtich cadences standout as the highlights of the video.
