[Video] Caleb James: “Eddy Curry”

You might remember Eddy Curry. For some, he was the hometown kid who jumped from Thornwood High School on Chicago’s South Side to The United Center on the city’s West Side as an 18-year-old, drafted by the Chicago Bulls with Tyson Chandler, essentially marking the end of the Jordan era for good, and the beginning of the Baby Bulls. Well, if you know what happened next, you’re likely from Chicago. His weight ballooned, he and teammates almost single-handedly put the cornrow and headband look to bed and he found a way to earn checks by sitting in a suit on a cushioned chair for thousands to ogle.

Well, Chicago’s own Caleb James decided to commemorate that very certain era in Bulls history by shouting out the former athlete in his latest track, a banger appropriately titled “Eddy Curry”. The video is shot by Brandon “N2ition” Riley, and features a side of the city we’ve been seeing a lot of; snow. James has been on his hustle in the Midwest for a minute now and last night shut down Subterranean in Wicker Park with Roman Flowrs. Keep an eye out for the SaveMoney artist’s latest project, The Jones 2.0, due out next month.
