Riley is an up and coming rapper from Harlem, New York City. He’s also an athlete, an actor, and an unintentional comedian. His latest single, ‘The World Is Yours’ is a perfect introduction to the artist, his sound, and what he represents.
The hard-working Riley is a fan of real hip hop, and takes that influence into his music. Inspired by the likes of Jay-Z, Meek Mill, and 21 Savage, he also featured on Wyclef Jean’s most recent album, ‘Carnival III: The Fall And Rise Of A Refugee’. With his strong work ethic there’s no doubt Riley is going to follow in Wyclef’s footsteps.
The clip for ‘The World Is Yours’ starts out with an overhead shot of the city, looking down to the Harlem Children’s Zone Promise Academy. We see Riley and V$ ASAD, and their crew taking to the streets of their neighbourhood; the basketball courts, the streets, the stores they shop at. They show that they’re from Harlem – they’re proud of their roots – but by the same token, the world is theirs – they’re determined to find their success. They’ll go out into the world, do better, and create their own future. It’s a great lesson for everyone to remember: if you’ve got a goal, go for it – the world is yours.
