If Joey Bada$$, Flatbush Zombies and co. have been keeping your ear, then Black Dave is another “New New York” MC you’ll want to keep tabs on. The Bronx spitter, who also counts pro skater on his resume, has teamed up with Billboard to premiere his new “Take It Back” video. Directed by Jason Ano, the short film plays like a day in the life of Dave, while paying homage to the 1995 movie, KIDS. In fact, Leo Fitzpatrick (aka Telly) and Pete Bici (who played one of the skater kids) even make cameos, but not like you remember them.

Produced by Shy Beats, “Take It Back” will feature on Black Dave’s upcoming Black Bart mixtape, dropping September 17.

With this video, I just wanted to share the day in the life of myself, and New York City skateboarding. Bringing the viewer into my world, but making sure to pay homage to the New York City skateboard culture. Teaming up with director Jason Ano, and having Peter Bici and Leo Fitzpatrick who were actors in the original film ‘KIDS’ that had a profound effect on my life and many other kids, and I just wanted to recapture that story and share it.
