Your Old Droog brings Times Square to life in the new video for "42 (Forty Deuce)." The song is a tribute to the epicenter of NYC, and Droog showcases its highs and lows with a clever visual component where he plays the role of a hot dog stand worker, a street artist, a homeless veteran, and even a breakdancing Elmo character. The track also features a funky sample flip of Nu Shooz's "I Can't Wait" courtesy of Marco Polo and Y.O.D.
"A song that's literally been in the making for over a decade. Wanted to flip this sample since '05 and I finally brought it to a producer and got the job done," Droog told us over email. "It's about a special place I really used to frequent back in the days. The video is a halfway glimpse into that and my halfway breakdancing skills. 'Yo, you listen to hip hop?!'"
