Brooklyn rapper Latasha Alcindor also known as L.A. joins forces with director Kidz ‘R Evil to revive the borough’s true feel with new visual for hit single “Ol’ BK Soul”, featuring fellow native, rapper and frequent collaborator Radamiz.

When speaking with Okayplayer, L.A. gave fans insight on the vision for the visual and inspiration behind the hit single, “I am not here to compete with any other rappers or fight for shine on a record. Especially my own. I am here to give an experience, one that has been buried alive by the world’s social construct. “Ol’ BK Soul” is a small part of a masterpiece I created earlier this year called Teen Nite at Empire. The album is the quintessential ‘follow the around way girl’ factual mythology and only has two features on the whole album. Throughout the project, I am spazzing for dear life and for Brooklyn. “Ol’ BK Soul” is a transitional track and is dedicated to giving balance and space to male energy within my N.Y. raw femme lens and I wanted the video to mimic this. The video was shot by the amazing KidzR’Evil. We decided that we didn’t want to film some over-the-top mockery of Brooklyn, we wanted to use what we have and give you the simple raw beauty of what it is,” said Alcindor.

The track appears on the rapper’s latest album, Teen Nite at Empire, as states by Alcindor is “dedicated to giving balance and space to male energy within my NY raw femme lens”.
