The 2010-2020 era proved to be extremely progressive for Central PA, especially Harrisburg. Over the last 10 years artist from Harrisburg, PA have been expressing their musical talents more than ever. Below we compiled a list of some of the most influential music videos to come from Harrisburg, PA over the last 10 years.
Let us start out by saying there was easily 20 other music videos that could have made this list. It was hard to narrow it down to just 10. Check out the videos below and let us know what you think! Tag your favorite artist or an artist that should have made the list!
This video was a Harrisburg classic. Off pure amount of views alone this video cracked the top 10 list. MoneyManMeach has had other songs that have went viral and this is one of the videos that picked up some steam.
9. Racked Up Treez – “Play For Keeps”
Coming in at number 9 on the list is Racked Up Treez with “Play For Keeps”. Not many artist had a movement over the past decade like ABM and Racked Up Treez. Many of the people you see in this video are currently in prison for anything from attempted murder to drug and weapon charges. Racked Up has overcome so much over the paste decade from being shot 10 times to losing his father to gun violence. There is NO way he could not make the list.
8. Fetro x Diego x Deno – “RIP WIZ”
Coming in at number 7 is Fetro x Diego x Deno with “RIP WIZ”. It will be hard to find a video that brings more energy then this. With over 60,000 this video was a Harrisburg classic.
7. Lil Smoke – “Wassup”
Lil Smoke may be our favorite artist on the list. This video amassed over 100,000 with no effects and being shot at Reservoir Park with just a DSLR camera and one camera man. Lil Smoke has just came home from prison and is already back to making music! We look forward to seeing what he releases next.
6. K.Shizz x Leeono x Loco – “First 48”
This was one of the most underrated videos to come out of Harrisburg over the past 10 years. Even though the video has over 92,000 views it just never seemed to get the recognition from Harrisburg like you would think. Our theory is that most of the views for this video are from other parts of the country. K.Shizz & Leeono both did extended prison sentences a few months after this video was released but hopefully will be home soon.
5. CB Ft. Jimmy Wopo – “Cake”
Uptown’s general CB cracks the list at #5 with his trap anthem “Cake”. CB was one of the last artist to work with Pittsburgh artist Jimmy Wopo before he was fatally shot in his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. Wopo was killed a few days after being offered a multi-million dollar deal from Wiz Khalifa to sign to Taylor Gang Records.
4. GLR Gusto – “So Sweet”
GLR Gusto has the potential to be one of the biggest artist to come from Harrisburg, PA. When this song was released it not only went viral but celebrities all over the world were playing this song. GLR is currently in the last year of his 5 year prison sentence. He was sentenced to 3-6 years after pleading guilty to drug delivery resulting in death charge. #FreeGLR
3. Meek Mill x YC x Framework Rich – “Fly Away”
We think this is the biggest feature that any artist from Harrisburg, PA has had over the last decade. YC & Framework Rich are legends in the Harrisburg music scene. The video was shot in parts of Harrisburg and Philadelphia with national recording artist Meek Mill.
2. Kierra Luv – “Don’t I”
Coming in at #2 on the list is the teenage phenom Kierra Luv! No music artist has made more moves than her over the last 10 years. She has been co-signed by major artist such as Cardi B and worked with legendary producers like Scott Storch. Check out the video above and let us know what you think!
1. All Steezy x Bobbo x Preston Dent x Plane Jaymes x Zach – “I Am Harrisburg”
Coming in at #1 on the list is the “I Am Harrisburg” song. The song was produced by Harrisburg Native “All-Steezy” and featured Bobbo, Preston Dent, Jaymes & Zach.
The video takes us around the city of Harrisburg stopping at influential business such as Eddie’s Mens Shop, The Music Man, and more!
The video also has NFL star running back and Harrisburg native LeSean McCoy making a cameo. It seemed as if the entire city came together to help make this project a success. We may not ever see this type of unity in the music scene around Harrisburg again.
