New England’s Hero The Emcee pays tribute to Gang Starr With New Video “The Weight”

Roxbury MA native Hero the Emcee follows up his latest single The Weight directed by Rose Glen Productions. The song and visual is a respectful dedication to Gang Starr’s classic single Who’s Gonna Take The Weight and premieres on the late Guru’s Birthday. “It’s important that we as emcees constantly pay homage and understand the history of those who came before us. Hip Hop wouldn’t be Hip Hop without legends like Guru” says Hero. The video plays on a similar aesthetic to the original with Hero rapping in front of a white background laced in camouflage attire. “That scene plays back in my head on most days, Guru in the studio with Preem, head nodding and dropping knowledge” says Hero.

The song is produced by Loman and mixed and mastered by The Arcitype. In an era that lacks appreciation for Hip Hop culture, Hero The Emcee proves that there is a new generation of rappers who love its foundation. Check out the song on your preferred digital streaming platform.
