Going Places w/ BJ The Chicago Kid [Video]

“My family’s been in Chicago my whole life,” BJ The Chicago Kid fondly recalled, riding around his city in The Toyota RAV4. “They named this street after us.” The R&B and soul singer-songwriter has deep roots in the city that made him, and an even deeper appreciation for the Chicago communities and institutions that have encouraged him along his musical journey. In a new video produced by The FADER for Toyota, BJ stops by three landmarks that hold a special place in his heart — his childhood home, where he was first introduced to gospel and soul music, his high school, where he’s able to share a few words of wisdom, and Fat Tiger, the beloved shop and meet-up spot that he dubs “the heartbeat of Chicago.”
