Easy T sent me this video (courtesy of her main man, Kool Keith) and it seemed worth sharing, so here it is (apparently I was living under a rock and missed this):
The artist, Nyle Emerson, did this during his senior year at NYU for a school project. It’s amazing what a $2,000 NYU grant, a bunch of talented students, and a rewrite of a Lil Wayne song (as you would expect, Let the Beat Build) can lead to (in this case it’s taking the 4th place spot on Spin Magazine’s Best Videos of 2009). More amazingly, they shot this video and recorded the audio all in one single take. Apparently none of that money went to making a website, but who really needs a website.
