Roqy Tyraid Shares New Video For “Jim Kelly”

Phoenix, AZ-based rapper RoQy TyRaiD (pronounced Rocky Tirade) is excited to announce the release of a series of three brand new singles, just in time for the summer. Hoping to shake things up, RoQy aims to capitalize off the recent resurgence of lyricism and organic Hip-Hop, with his unadulterated perspectives and creative prowess.

The first in the series is the 70s-esque video for the self-directed ‘Jim Kelly,’where RoQy battles kung-fu foes in the middle of downtown Phoenix. The combination of high-level lyricism, hybrid lo-fi funk, and elements of blaxploitation, makes this hilariously dope visual a contender for video of the summer.
