[Video] Iron Solomon: “The Empire” feat Talib Kweli
“The highest currensy is courage in these urban streets.”
I’m always wary of the home town New York tracks. I love NYC, but at the end of the day, I’m not from there and feel weird singing/rapping along to songs dedicated to the big apple. You’ll also never see me rocking a Yankees hat, just can’t do it. Anyway though, at the heart of it, a lot of songs about any one city come off kind of corny, littered with boring and redundant cliches. This is not one of those joints. Iron Solomon and Talib Kweli come correct with “The Empire”, and the video is super dope as well, providing snapshots of NYC and a ton of cameos. Peep it below.
