Toronto hip-hop artist, Young Smoke, recently dropped the visuals for his latest single “Block Boy”, the follow up to his October 2020 release “Cap”. The track was produced by Ottawa hip-hop producer CR who has become the go-to producer for some of Toronto and Ottawa’s most promising up and coming artists, including Duvy (“Southway”) and Lindasson (“A Lot”).
“I’ve been working with Young Smoke for a while”, CR told SHIFTER. “I met him through Jermaine Prime, owner of Prime brand. I’ve been sending beats and working with him for like a year now…Specifically that beat though, it’s just some emotional chords with some vocal chops and hard bouncy drums. Then Smoke just slid on it.”
Directed by King Bee Productions, the video opens with Young Smoke hopping out of a black SUV. It’s a nice downtown vibe, showing Young Smoke in and around a downtown Toronto condo with the occasional shot of the CN Tower.
“Block Boy” is available on all major streaming platforms.
