New York City. The towering skyscrapers, Wall Street big wigs, and foreign sports conceal the grim underworld that lies beyond. Phillip Walker gives us a glimpse into grimy streets of New York in his latest video Z% York, directed by Shomi Patwary. The Harlem wordsmith attacks Ty Hickson’s gritty 90’s production, vividly depicting the concrete jungle as seen through his eyes, while paying homage to fellow Harlem legends, Big L and Cam’ron. Phillip Walker will be performing at SXSW, so be sure to check him out when he hits the stage, and in the mean time enjoy the video for Z% York below.
