We at TWIB are always ready to cover all types of submission as long as it’s hip hop related and this is no exception. Multi instrumentalist Benji Blow comes to the forefront with this stunning song/video titled “Kings”. The music video is about a lost love. In Brooklyn. The story between a woman and a man, with the city so vibrant around them that it became an extension of their characters. Fast-paced, moody, exhilarating, the city mirrored their feelings, turned into their best friend and worst enemy, fuelling yet consuming their relationship.
The retro fitted soundscape is brought to life with the visual representation, shot in the heart of Brooklyn, NY. We get to see the super dance routines from dancers Judith & Shii McCarty and also catch the sites of the city.
