Mateo – Empire State Of Mind pt.3 (Video)

blame it on Meka June 2, 2010

Here is the premiere of Mateo’s video for his remix of Empire State of Mind, one of the standout songs from the third installment of his mixtape series Underneath the Sky. The video marks the directorial debut of Quddus (MTV, Access Hollywood). It was shot throughout New York City and includes appearances by Victor Rasuk (HBO’s How To Make It In America) and Jenna Andrews (Island/Def Jam). Quddus says, “Mateo’s version of the song takes a completely different approach than Jay-Z’s and this is an entirely different perspective on New York than what Hype Williams did for their video. Instead of sweeping aerial shots and landmarks like Times Square, this video features what I think really makes New York special- the people.”
