“We just some city kids, tryna run the city, kid.”

City Kids is probably the most renowned cut off of Boston emcee Natural‘s latest project, Ways To Go. It’s the tape’s second single, following the surmounted success and support from it’s first, State Of Grace, which honored the lives of those lost and injured in the Boston Marathon bombings of 2013, notably the young Martin Richard.

City Kids is a vibrant single with a positive message, get out and get yours, simply put. The Beantown “firecracker” links with the femcee goddess, Dutch ReBelle and the two transform back into their childhood state, complete with re-enactments from twin versions of themselves. The production comes by way of Teddy Roxpin (has worked with Mac Miller, among others), and is a great introduction to Natural’s full project, if this is the first your hearing of it. Growing up in a big city, or any city, will have turn your life into a fast-paced movie at a young age, but you can never forget where you come from. Natural simply channeled that youthfulness and used it to enrich his career and uplift a message. Enjoy the video, below.
