D- Block had Bedstuy, Brooklyn in a frenzy on Tuesday (April 21), when they hit the streets to shoot a clip for their single, “Get That Paper,” off their upcoming D-Block project, No Security.
The star studded re-enactment of the classic “One More Chance” video had onlookers scrambling for their cameras and for camera time. Kid Capri was on the set taking over Heavy D’s original duties as “House Party” doorman, while Jadakiss pulls up in a very clean black BMW and rushes the door with his D-Block comrades.
Since the setting was very authentic, Bed Stuy’s energy was unmistakably felt on and off camera. The sidewalks and streets were filled with empty bottles of Hennessy and countless smoking cirles, which would lead you to believe the set was located in Amsterdam and not New York.
In addition to the entire D-Block family, others such as Jim Jones, DJ Webstar, Jaz-O, and Pete Rock also came through to show support. Once Jim’s SUV was spotted, the streets filled up with eager fans trying to snap a picture of the Byrd Gang General, and play the ever so familiar game of “You know my cousin right?”
As celebs posed for pictures, the film crew was directing the sea of people in front of the brownstone. When the fans were then told to chant D-Block and cause a ruckus, it became evident that the streets are true supporters of the veteran trio.
When the cameras stopped rolling, the chants bellowed throughout the streets, as if D-Block were from Bed Stuy and not Yonkers.
“Get That Paper” is the first taste of D-Block’s upcoming No Security album, due in stores on June 2. The project is a compilation of new material by the trio, including new members such as Snipe Life, A.P., and Large Amounts.
If Jada’s current success, with The Last Kiss is any indication of D-Block’s future, then they will be able to sleep very well at night. He is fresh off first week sales of sold over 135,000 copies, and earning his third straight top 5 charting.
