While Christmas and the New Years are fast approaching some artists are making sure fans are supplied with heat to keep them going through the celebrations. One in particular named NYM LO, has released a new visual, via Vibe, for his track titled “Speedin”. It’s his cautionary tale of growing up fast in the inner city.
I wanted the video for Speedin to be gritty and authentic, reflecting the consequences of living too fast when you’re young in the inner-city. When I wrote the song, I took a lot of experiences from my own life, chasing money, chasing girls and some of the reckless decisions I made.
Taking it a step further, NYM LO explained why he took this approach when creating the visual saying, “Speedin happened by accident. The song was one of DZA‘s favorites, and he added it to his most recent project (‘Cuz I Felt Like It Again’). When it came time for the video, I needed it to be raw and semi-autobiographical. That’s why I used my son as the main character.”
NYM LO is preparing his fans for another drop in 2018 as, “Speedin is the first release from my upcoming project “Everything LO,” coming Feb 2018.” He will also appear in the new Damon Dash and Kanye West produced film “Honor Up” hits theaters February 14, 2018.
