Anybody who knows me, knows that I listen to very little rap music and like very few hip hop artists. With this as the case, I've been reluctant to post any rap related blogs. Up until now that is! I'm sharing a video by Young Magic (YM) and I share this video with you for two reasons. One being the fact that it's pretty cool and even with the excess amount of rappers in the Los Angeles area, YM seems to shine. The second reason is that it was directed by Ramses Perryman. Ramses and I attended school together at one point and he is a good friend of mine. I recall having a conversation with Ramses about our goals for the future and I must admit that when he said he wanted to direct films, I was leery. I was inclined to think about how difficult it would be for him to break into the competitive industry, but had not once thought that maybe he possessed natural talent. It's sad how we doubt others based off of our own fears. Shame on me because after watching this video I see that his work is beyond industry quality and it definitely makes me give YM's song a listen. Again, I'm no rap expert but this video is better than many others that I've seen. Enough of my rambling... Peep the video below!
