AUDIO | “E.N.Y. (SLOWdown Gentrification)” @RoyTheSavage

RoyTheSavage ENY

I opened my email and laughed when I saw this. Not because it’s funny but because it’s funny how the universe works. When I was in Orlando this weekend I said “gentrification” at least 10 times while my girlfriend and I drove around. We saw so many storefronts that looked commercial in areas that they didn’t belong; then I heard this track from Roy The Savage. Roy tackles the topic of gentrification that’s happening in East New York on this Coopatroopa produced cut today. The strings and drums present a beautiful backdrop but Roy takes the opposite route and uses the song to bring awareness to what’s happening with ENY becoming more gentrified by the day. It’s an amazing song and you can stream/download it below.
