Thirstin Howl the 3rd drops a dope tribute to MGV best known as Marcus Garvey Village in Brownsville. This past weekend we witnessed an alarming video footage of police brutality in Brownsville over quarantine and social distancing rules. There was excessive force being used on minorities. However, I’ve seen footage of large groups of white people in Long Island City, NY chilling unbothered by the police. Sad, but not surprising at all.

This video couldn’t come at a better time. It shows Thirstin chillin with friends and fam in MGV. There are shots of nostalgic footage added to it showing Thirst having fun with friends as they walk the streets of East New York. The raw shots highlight the essence of the MGV. Rudy Lo did a great job capturing the heart and soul of the community. Thirst delivers on this visual. Watch “Proud To Be From MGV” and stay safe out there!
