For those who aren’t yet familiar, Avenue is one of the hottest up-and-coming emcees in Boston’s bubbling hip-hop scene. The 21-year-old released his debut project, Words Speak Life, to widespread positive reception this past fall, and he’s currently prepping the release of The Chandelier View, a collaborative EP with producer HiFadility.
“I Love My,” released earlier this year, is the first single off The Chandelier View EP. Today, we get an incredible set of visuals to go along with the track, courtesy of Goodwin.
This is one of my favorite videos of the year. It’s remarkably poignant and captures both Avenue and Last Days, who handles the second verse, in the neighborhoods in which they grew up, painting a tremendously real life picture – the same picture that’s painted in the song itself.
I’ve been saying for a while that all Avenue needed to make the push to the next level was a series of videos to match the quality of his music. This is the right start.
The Chandelier View EP is slated for a summer release. Stay tuned for more.
