Regular readers of this blog will know we've got a big thing for the city-centric boom-bap of Richie Cunning, an S.F. native and rapper extraordinaire. The man builds classic jazz and soul samples into head-nodding beats, then rhymes detail-laden, deeply personal stories about his native burg over them. Cunning is holding his first-ever headlining show at Elbo Room tomorrow night, and just dropped this new video for "The Station," a highlight off of his full-length album Night Train. Unsurprisingly given the title of the song, the video follows Cunning on an odyssey through the tunnels, seats, and stations of the incomparable S.F. Muni system, stealing a few nips from a brown-bagged bottle along the way. Take a quick ride with Richie after the jump.
Cunning performs this Friday, Nov. 11, at Elbo Room.
