Camden artist Mir Fontane pays tribute to Bronx teen Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz (who tragically passed away outside of a bodega in June) and embraces the hustle and grind of the hood community in his new video “Bodega.” The track is a laidback, but emotional journey where Mir combines the reinvigorating elements of hip-hop and smoky atmospherics that lets the listener indulge in Mir’s contemplative space. Watch below:
“To me, the bodega always represented a hub for the community… but it also embodies the spirit of the hustle and grind. The owner of the bodega is one of the first true businessmen you meet growing up in the hood.” shared Mir.
“Bodega” is from Mir’s EP Macaroni Tony, which is out now. Mir is currently working on new music and has a show coming up soon:
9/20 – Up & Down (New York, NY, USA)
