Philadelphia’s own DJ Aktive recently released a stellar video collaboration with DJ Jazzy Jeff, Common, Freeway and Bri Steves called “The City” which is a fairly nostalgic track paying homage to the artist’s hometowns, which are all urban cities. The overall gist of song is about progressing out of their cities and the love these artist have for their native places.
The video was entirely animated by Konee Rok. Each artist has an animated scene to match their verse. DJ Aktive, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Freeway and Bri Steves are all from Philadelphia, and provide their own type of sound relating to their thoughts of growing up and out of the city, becoming successful, and still loving it just as much. Common provides this same intake about growing up and flourishing in Chicago. The visual is meaningful and relatable. To watch, please stream below:
