The Godfather of Harlem, a story about Harlem’s infamous hustler Bumpy Johnson, premieres on EPIX Sept.29. The film’s soundtrack is being curated by Epic Records–with new songs dropping every Friday.
Today (Sept. 27), the folks over at Epic released the DAPS-produced visuals for “Just in Case” featuring Rick Ross, Swizz Beatz and DMX.
Rick Ross, wearing a white mink, raps about dreams of money bags from the inside of an old school Lincoln Town Car that’s parked in a dark alley. DMX sits at a table next to Forest Whitaker–who plays Bumpy Johnson–and Rozay as he handles his verse.
This video was shot at Harlem’s Minton’s Playhouse, a legendary jazz spot at Uptowns’s 118th Street.
The Godfather of Harlem tells the story Bumpy Johnson’s ties to the Genovese mob family, his relationship with Malcolm X, and larger-than-life status in Harlem World.
