Fresh off Constant Deviants’ recently released mixtape, Platinum, comes the video for “Fulton Street.” The song is an ambient ode to Brooklyn by rapper M.I. and producer DJ Cutt, who split their time between Baltimore and New York City, and the duo worked with iHenry of Above Ground Studios and Jimmy Powell to shoot the video, appropriately, on the legendary street from which the song title pulls its name.
The visual is a behind-the-scenes glance at the inspiration for the song, with shots of M.I. writing lyrics and getting tattooed at a Brooklyn parlor, matched against a variety of landmarks and striking imagery from the neighborhood. “Since ‘Fulton Street’ represents Brooklyn so much, we had to do it right in the middle of Bed-Stuy, where it’s undeniably Brooklyn,” explains M.I. “I’m from Baltimore, but lived in the Stuy for a long time, so it is a part of me now.”
