Brooklyn rapper Dyme-a-Duzin takes viewers home with him to Utica Ave in Crown Heights in this pensive and powerful new video for his latest single, "That Chicken." He makes stops at a handful of brightly-lit locales—the Sunoco gas station, the corner store, a Mister Frostee truck, the subway, and the Crown Fried Chicken—all the while contemplating his darker realities.
"The video explores the harsh reality of the paper chase and expresses the urgency of trying to get that chicken—aka money—by any means necessary," Dyme explained in an email to The FADER. "I'm not advocating being a thug or criminal. My point of view derives from that of many young black males in our society. Noble people torn between wanting to walk a righteous path and being stuck in a poverty-stricken situation with a lack of options."
Get that chicken with Dyme-a-Duzin above; keep an eye out for Dyme's Crown Fried, coming soon.
