With a new album, AWAR & Vanderslice “The Winning Team” release right around the corner on July 22nd, I decided to visually showcase two of the songs for this double feature presentation. “We Belong To The City” and “Ready For The World” featuring BJ the Chicago Kid (Produced by Vanderslice & Green Steez) appear in snippet form for this cinematic depiction. Directed by Ben Fredette, watch as We Belong To The City takes you on a trip through his stomping grounds and NYC Burroughs, with cameos from a few recognizable faces & affiliates. With the first half of the video appearing grimy in black and white and following the circulation of a $1 bill around, thing’s get more colorful and smooth for the 2nd song of the video, a soulful banger accompanied by upcoming star Bj the Chicago Kid (who has worked with Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Freddie Gibbs). With each visual a reflection of its sound, we are reminded of the juxtaposition of both the gutter and the glamor and glitz of the metropolis.

AWAR & Vanderslice “The Winning Team” hits stores on July 22nd and features appearances by Freddie Gibbs, Troy Ave, Roc Marciano, King Los, Has-Lo, BJ the Chicago Kid, Latoiya Williams, and more.

This is incredible, the 1st time the Notorious BIG touched down on Hot 97, AND if you don’t know, there was really NO other radio station in the country playing Hip Hop full time, so this is more than likely the 1st radio interview Big ever did!!!

Back in Late to mid June 1994, about a week or 2 before July 4th(either June 17th or 24th), this interview happened on Flex “Friday Night Street Jam”, and Like WOW, there are so many NYC hip hop and Biggie Smalls & 90′s era jewels in this interview, like the fact Flex mentions Biggie had an ‘underground buzz’(Early), this interview was before “Juicy” dropped and “Unbelievable” was the confirmed B-side, and that his name on the Album was official the NOTORIOUS BIG because some skate hip hop punk poser sued him for the name ‘Biggie Smalls’ prior to this(except he spelled his with a z), CRAZY!!!
