Video: Red Cafe x Pete Rock – Heart & Soul of NYC

by Yvette Travillian

Even though Jay and Alicia  banged us out with one of the hottest New York anthems of all time last year – there’s always room for more love letter to one of the most beloved cities in the world.

Released right as both the weather and NBA playoffs are heating up, “Heart & Soul of NYC” was produced by Kevin Couliau (the well known French streetball documentarist) who spent last summer in the five boroughs hunting down ‘supreme blacktop action’ which he was able to excellently capture on film. With rhymes by Red Cafe (who is fresh off his “I’m Ill” success) and a dope beat by Pete Rock,  this track just shows what a compatible mix hip hop, basketball and NYC really is.
