Cocktail Cinema: Crown Heights, Nutcracker + J’Ouvert Star in Fat Tony’s “BKNY”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Fat Tony BKNY coconut

There’s nothing like the energy in Central Brooklyn (a/k/a “Real Brooklyn”) at the end of the summer, in the days leading up to Labor Day and the West Indian Day Parade. That’s the backdrop for “BKNY,” the latest video from NY underground rapper Fat Tony. Though the song features Jamaican-Guyanese BK rap duo Old Money, the pair are absent from the video, which instead features cameos from Mr. MFN eXquire, Kool AD of Das Racist, Nick Catchdubs, and Tenille, and landmarks like Ali’s Roti Shop and the Eastern Parkway road divider.

How We Roll: Watch Old Money’s “Dolla Van” Video

Words by Jesse Serwer

Mos Def and Talib Kweli made a video in one, but, really and truly, the dollar van doesn’t get repped nearly enough in song lyrics, considering its status as the definitive and preferred mode of transportation in the cultural mecca that is Brooklyn. Delivered to our inbox with the subject line, “Been told that this sounds like Mr. Cheeks went to Guyangola,” Old Money’s “Dolla Van (Acuras, Maximas, Cressidas & Celicas)” is something of an East Flatbush answer to the Lost Boyz “Jeeps, Lex Coups, Bimaz & Benz.”
