Having released several music videos, Chaney has successfully carved out a niche for himself in Hip Hop. Currently, he stars on Bounce TV’s hit show Saints And Sinners, but that doesn’t mean Chaney has put his rap pursuits on the back burner. Today he unveils his brand new visual for “You Think You Know.”

On the song, Tray shares real life instances of his struggles behind the camera, having difficulty earning income and providing for his wife and child. The music video, which is directed by Alan M. Brooks, co-stars Black Child of Murder Inc Records as well as his Saints And Sinners & The Wire cast-mate J.D. Williams, whom is famously known for portraying Bodie on the HBO show. With his back against the wall, Williams and Black Child convince Chaney that he must take the ultimate risk in order to provide for his family. Check out the visual and be sure to catch all three men on the upcoming 3rd season of Saint And Sinners which is set to premiere April 8th at 9pm on Bounce TV.
