French Montana, Jadakiss Channel ‘King of New York’ In ’88 Coupes’ Video
Rappers French Montana and Jadakiss channel the 1990 cult classic ‘King of New York’ in the newly-released video to ’88 Coupes.’ Opening with a monologue from an impressive Christopher Walken impersonator, the five-minute mini-movie stars the Bronx bomber as a fresh-out-of-prison mob boss, clearly inspired by Walken’s character as Frank White in the film.
As the Picture Perfect-directed clip dives deep into the seedy underworld of New York City crime, the Coke Boy leader and LOX rapper enjoy the company of video vixens and a garage full of ’80s coupes. Fellow rappers Lil Durk, Chinx and the rest of the Coke Boys crew make cameos in the visual, which ends with ’90s-style movie credits as well.
Produced by Harry Fraud, ’88 Coupes’ is taken from French Montana’s ‘Coke Boys 4′ mixtape, which you can download here.
