Video: Dark ATM – Hustle

If you’re not yet familiar with Uptown’s Dark ATM, allow me to make an introduction. The Washington Heights MC will be dropping his new project, The Spade Era EP, on July 1st and today he shares his new video for the cut “Hustle”. Shot on location in the Heights, you can practically taste the piragua.

Hit the jump to download the track and check out the trailer for the The Spade Era EP.

In the late 80’s early 90’s extreme violence, corruption, primal fear and lawlessness ruled the northern tip of Manhattan. Due to its favorable geography to the other 4 boroughs as well as New Jersey & Upstate NY, Washington Heights became the breeding ground for wholesale drug trafficking. Sharing a language and an interest in money, Colombian suppliers began associating with the Dominican drug dealers of Washington Heights, quickly making it the epicenter of the drug trade in NYC.

Now on July 1st 2014 Washington Heights’ native son, DARK is releasing a 6 song conceptual EP that will detail the hustler lifestyle that was prominent in that time period. Sonically the project possesses a soulful tone reminiscent of much of the music that was being made during that era. The EP will be released in conjunction with a collaborated UPTNY Clothing Capsule Collection with Peralta Project.
