[With New York bringing the heat thanks to studs like A$AP Rocky and Action Bronson, German rapper Joe Young talks to SOHH about hooking up with Big Apple’s own Dave East and Cormega for their “Free” music video.]
The “Free” music video is confirmed. At first, I wanted to shoot it out in Berlin, Germany. But Dave East, he’s working on his passport situation.
Now I’m just putting it together. Cormega and Dave already confirmed the video. That’s all good. That’s already confirmed that we’re doing the video.
I talked to a [production contact] the other day and we’re going to make this into a movie.
It’s just another day at work. For me, it’s like, “Okay, it’s dope to work with Cormega and Dave East,” but at the same time, you have to check my catalog.
I’ve been putting it down with people like that. Raekwon’s new album has something on there I did. I did something for the record he has with A$AP Rocky. I wrote the hook to that.
So it’s like, “Okay, it’s dope for me to go out to New York to shoot the video,” but it’s not like I can’t go to sleep [because it’s my first time.]
It’s like, “Let me get on a plane, knock this out and do what I gotta do.”
