A rap video released online Sunday about Windsor is going viral on a local scale and getting a lot of attention for its mostly positive vibes about the city.

“I used to cruise the west end with my best friend, it wasn’t such a boarded up mess then,” is one of the lyrics by artist Icky Eric that mixes criticism about certain aspects of Windsor life with uplifting vocals, melody and a chant to “rep Rose City”.

The music video mentions landmarks and other things only local people would understand before returning to a chorus featuring a hand sign resembling a ‘W’ for Windsor.

The song, which was written, recorded and produced by local performer Icky Eric, was shot as a music video by AJ Jimenez of SVN29 Productions.

Early Monday the video had 2000 views on YouTube and its popularity grew to just over 3500 as of 7pm.

Check out the video above or watch it here on YouTube.

Warning: The video contains language some may find offensive.
