The Grit Comes Out On Screen For Columbia Heights

The neighborhood that a forgettable politician once labelled 'tony' and filled with pancake-loving yuppies still has a tough guy side. The DC folk-rock band Ugly Purple Sweater filmed the video for their latest single at Columbia Heights' DC USA (the single is called "DC USA") and it shows neighborhood shots. The star of the video is none other than local rapper Superstar Butta who lent his acting chops to the group. See the full video after the break.
