Expensive is the new single by London hip-hop/trap artist Poni Capri, so nicknamed because she can “ride over any rhythm.” The track features the fierce vocals Jeff Chery (signed to Rick Ross’ label) and has a vibrant music video featuring and directed by the multitalented Poni herself. “Expensive is a state of mind, I wanted to create a video that showed that a person can feel ‘expensive’ even if they live in the hood. It shows that thoughts and hard work will get you out of the hood. The craziest thing is that we filmed it in the Ghetto in Atlanta and the neighbors called the police on us and they shut down our shoot!!” Poni Capri
