TJ Hickey & Nasty Beatz – Reality [Video]
Boston, MA – It seems so Canadian but the new “Reality” video by TJ Hickey is a product of Beantown. You see, TJ had been recruited by Schenectady, New York-based Union College but was cut halfway through his freshman year. “Reality” is TJ’s way of venting and sharing the story of this experience. A lot of North American kids grow up dreaming up playing professional hockey but obviously only a handful can make a career out of it. This is the first time I’ve seen the hardships of that process brought into a rap video (shot, directed and edited by Matt Arnold).
After being cut from the Union team, TJ started writing music and eventually linked up with a producer named Nasty Beatz. They’ve gone on to release the One Night Stand mixtape together and “Reality” is the cool, easy going intro to the project. You can check out the video below and take in One Night Stand via DatPiff, after the jump.
