Remember when hardcore MCs were at the forefront of Hip-Hop? Necro, Vinnie Paz and Immortal Technique are bringing Heads back to those days with their new music video for “Take HipHop Back.” Filmed in New York City, the video features all of the Hip-Hop elements: MCing, DJing, breakdancing and graffiti.

The song itself features the three MCs spitting verses about the state of Hip-Hop, and how the legacy of originators like Kool Herc are being tarnished by the commercialization of the culture. Along with the DJ scratches on the hook, the video brings shine to the other elements of Hip-Hop by including a b-boy breakdancing to the beat and a graffiti artist creating a tag for each MC. This appears to be the first single off of Necro’s upcoming album KILLaborations, set to be released in 2016. Check out the video below, as Reel Wolf Productions captures the essence of Hip-Hop in its birthplace:
