Video: Children of the Night – “Kids From Queens”


Lansky Jones, Remy Banks, and Nasty Nigel of hip hop trio Children of the Night yesterday released their new video for their magnetic “Kids From Queens” track.

With a sound seeming to pay homage to old school hip hop sounds, these young lads have already received approval from industry veterans like Ski Beatz and Large Professor. The black and white video depicts almost a home video or documentary style video of Queens living – kind of all has a Nas vibe to it in parts. This one’s a no brainer, y’all.

Listen to and downlaod the free Queens… Revisited mixtape on Bandcamp.

K’Naan keeps it pretty damn real on “Hurt Me Tomorrow” – we must say. Lightweight coldblooded. But homie got ish to do, nahmean? It is what it is and stuff.

And the video – bizarre, but certainly entertaining. Humping stuffed animal puppets. That’s all we have to say.

Look out for Country, God or The Girl to drop in July 2012.
