This infectious electro-rap anthem doesn’t just entertain; it addresses the pressing issue of urban renewal, a topic close to the heart of any New Yorker.

The video is a tour de force, shot in the very neighborhoods Aly G calls home. Every frame is a testament to her love for Brooklyn and her determination to stand against gentrification. Her message is clear: the external may change, but the spirit of Brooklyn will endure.
