Chris Rivers & Styles P Hit ‘Em Where It Hurts, In A “Warriors” Themed Video
Over the last few years, Chris Rivers and Styles P have teamed up for a number of strong collaborations. Both Styles and Rivers are students of the School of Hard Rhymes and deft lyricism. “Black Hearts,” from Rivers’ 2015 Medicated Consumption mixtape, is no exception, as the two MCs trade bars over a Dayzel The Machine-produced soulful boom bap beat that sounds like it was inspired by the likes of DJ Premier and Statik Selektah.
For the video, Baby Pun and Ghost head to The Bronx, transporting viewers back to a time when some of NYC’s most notorious gangs ruled the burrough. Inspired by the films The Warriors and Rubble Kings, Rivers and Styles are shown in the Boogie Down, wearing the sleeveless jackets donned by gang members in the 1970s. Rather than battling with weapons, the men use Hip-Hop, the tool that helped end the senseless violence in the era, to wage a war of words.
With so many collabos in their catalog, could a joint Styles P and Chris Rivers album be a possibility?
