Red Cafe x Pete Rock “The Heart & Soul of New York City” (A K1X Film by Kevin Couliau)

Just about the only way Red Cafe can make it on illrapper haha. But for real, I never enjoyed homie's music too much but like the guys in the K1X headquarters in Munich, I can see this track getting a lot of burn. That sample, and Pete Rock's production is just too ill. Paired with an incredible, artsy and warm video, this is what the fuck I'm talking about.

French streetball documentarist Kevin Couliau (Asphalt Chronicles), who spent the summer of 2009 in the five boroughs hunting down supreme blacktop action, was a natural choice to capture the raw essence of NYC and its rich streetball culture. As was the Canon 5D Mark II as Couliau’s weapon of choice. Art director / director / producer Thibaut de Longeville (director of the acclaimed “Just For Kicks” sneaker culture documentary) and motion graphic designer Vincent Dumond of 360 Creative in Paris added their visual expertise to the project and took care of elegant motion graphics and bona fide post production.
