As 2020 winds down, R.A. The Rugged Man's stellar collection All My Heroes Are Dead remains a strong contender for the best hip-hop album of the year. Now, the Rugged Man is back with another striking video off the album, this time for the throwback anthem "E.K.N.Y. (Ed Koch New York)". Featuring lyrical swordsman Inspectah Deck of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan and a hook from Wu affiliate Timbo King, "E.K.N.Y." is a compelling tribute to 1980s New York City, painting a vivid picture of the seedy environment that prevailed under former mayor Ed Koch.
Bonus: check out alternate video for the "B.K.N.Y. Mix" of the track, which features a new verse from Wu affiliate Timbo King.
