It’s only right the “Mic Check” video from Camp Lo and Pete Rock (as 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s) presents stylish and updated visuals alongside throwback imagery from a more pure period of Hip-Hop. Both Pete Rock and Camp Lo are artists with classic ties to a previous era as well as strong catalogues that stretch into the current day.
Walls covered in graffiti and b-boys popping and locking while P.R. mans the turntables bring viewers back to Hip-Hop’s beginnings in the Bronx, while Camp Lo’s always fashion forward look are captured through Court Dunn’s lens to demonstrate that these golden era legends are far from living in the past. The track itself was debuted on the 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s Mixtape, and serves as the 1st single off the forthcoming album of the same name.
