NY rapper/fashion muse Aurora Anthony shares the visuals for his lead single “Lil Wolfy” which dives into the rapper’s tumultuous past. from running the streets and partaking in less than glorious activities to fit with the crowd, Anthony looks back with disdain and also acknowledges the growth within him as he ha snow forged a new path. He makes use of a dark and somewhat off-kilter production courtesy of Jonathan Richettes, to share his candid thoughts. The result is a gripping introduction to the rapper while the title is a reference to his nickname.
The visuals directed by Jonah Schwartz captures Anthony in his element and make use of several performance shots. It is shot in black and white adding an ominous and cinematic feeling to the song itself.
“Lil Wolfy” is the lead single from Aurora Anthony’s forthcoming debut album TUNDE, which is scheduled for release on the 10th of September alongside a short film.
For the upcoming album TUNDE, Aurora tapped his close friend Reginald Sylvester II to create an original painting for the cover art. This dynamic pair collaborating lends to Aurora‘s creative foresight as a tastemaker in New York’s art scene. Reginald Sylvester II is a critically acclaimed American artist that has received praise from Artsy, OFFICE Magazine, Hypebeast, HighSnobiety, and more. In his large-scale canvases which are currently on display in London at Maximillian William gallery, his figures emerge from more abstract brushwork.
