18 year old Brooklyn emcee, Stro (fka Astro or The Astronomical Kid) shows wisdom well beyond his years with his latest joint, “K.I.N.G.” Stro hooks up with fellow NY emcee, Bishop Nehru, to play the role of Malcolm X and Huey P Newton, respectively in these new visuals. The video takes a deeper look at the over-commercialization of hip-hop and the African American self-image - check it out, below. “K.I.N.G.” (or Keeping Ignorant Ni**as Glorified) serves as the second single from Stro’s first commercial album, Computer Era, which is out now via iTunes.
