Video Review: A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie “King of My City”

In New York City, New York, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie walks past Yankee Stadium at night. He walks the stairs to the 4 Train. His friends, dressed as the Joker, sit on a bench. He waits on the platform and sits next to one of his friends.

In the parking of a laundromat, he spray paints a car with the word Artist. He walks to his apartment and gets his mail. He stands on top of the car. He dances on the train. In black-and-white, he stands with his friends and breaks the windshield of the car.

Lit in royal blue, he sits on top of the car.

On the subway, a friend of his reads a copy of the Daily News. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie sprays the aerosol can in the air as he stands by the car.

He and his friends walk to the Jue Lan Club. Lit in violet, he pours a drink for his friend. He sits at the table and dances in place. He and his friends sit with their unfinished plates.

A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie smears some makeup on his friend’s face. His friend checks out it in the mirror and nods. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie says they need to get going if they wanted to make the midnight showing of the Joker. They’d seen the movie about 5 times. His friends stood in front of the theater and performed the dance with other people.

His friends smirk as young women tighten their arms as they sit on the train. His friend shrugs and asks out loud, “what’s her problem?” A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie shakes his head and says it’s just a movie. They decide to eat at the Jue Lan Club. As a kid, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie would pick up a menu. His mother told him they couldn’t go there. It was too much money and they could get the same thing for cheap at the 24 hour place on the next block. However, he kept in his pocket. He wanted to be able to go in there and order what he wanted.

The hostess greets him and asks if he wants his usual table. He orders the sweet and sour chicken. As the server hands him his bill, he asks to add a carryout to his check. His mom asks him to get him some whenever he’s in town. He pays and takes his container. At his mom’s apartment, she smiles as she opens the container. She tells him he’s so thoughtful. He says he wanted to stop by but he has to get back with his friends. She tells him to have fun.
