Let the Beat Build

Damn.  I came across this video a while ago, but just rediscovered it.  Nyle is an NYC rapper finishing up his senior year at NYU.  He performs regularly, and has released an album every year he’s been at college.  He’s got a backing band, The Naysayers, featuring drums, bass, and keys.  But what catapulted him into the spotlight was this video he starred in last year, produced by Last Pictures.  It was filmed in one take with the audio recorded simultaneously with the film.  I love rap over live music, and I like the song choice.  Lil’ Wayne did it okay, but Nyle absolutely kills it.
