The Drew Milo-directed clip sees Jones, CJ Fly, and Mr. Muthafuckin' Exquire — who appear on the track — running through NYC's subway on the F and G lines, dropping off gritty, golden-era style raps.

"I met Drew Milo through Mr. Star City, a legend amongst the New York nightlife scene," Jones told FADER over email. "Drew and I first collaborated on the “Flock” video and this is a loose spinoff, with Flock’s ending and the “Know The Type” opening sequence tying into one another...This is probably a very shitty analogy, but Drew is the Scorsese to my DeNiro, Flock was our Mean Streets, but this one is more our Taxi Driver."

Lansky says his Dangerfield album is due out in February. Watch "Know The Type" up above.
