Riley is from Harlem, in New York City. He’s an up and coming rapper, but he’s also an athlete, an actor, a comedian (unintentionally) and most of all, a dream chaser. His latest single, ‘Fasho’, featuring V$ Asad, is the first taste of Riley’s upcoming album, ‘First Quarter’, and the music video has already found its way onto BET Jams.
Riley is a fan of real hip-hop. and takes his inspiration from the likes of Jay-Z, Meek Mill, and 21 Savage, among others. He’s also featured on legend Wyclef Jean’s album, ‘Carnival III’.
‘Fasho’, follows on from his previous single, ‘The World Is Yours’, and like that song’s video, this clip is also set in New York City. An animated video, it’s been directed by Maddisays, and animated by Food Fight Studios. Opening with Riley sitting on a park bench, he’s wearing a “ROSÉ” hoodie, from his merch collection. His alter ego, Lil Riley, appears next to him and the pair, along with V$ Asad, who is seen on top of a building among other locations, sing while lyrics flash on the screen.
The video is as enticing as the song is catchy, you’ll want to play it over and over, and you’ll have the refrain, “That’s fasho” echoing through your brain long after you’ve pressed stop.
Watch the video for ‘Fasho’ below. You can find Riley online on his Twitter account.
