As of late I’ve been listening to quite a bit of old school hip-hop, so I’m not really staying in tune with the current stuff being played on the radio. However, I’m always interacting with unique artists on Twitter & Facebook. I’m constantly running across new music from artists that might not be mainstream, but their music is still awesome.
My passion for good music and networking is why I’m always anxious to hear what DMV rapper Napoleon Da Legend drops next. We’ve been networking for almost a year now, and I’m glad that he continues to amaze me with such innovative lyrical combinations. His lyrics are always on point, but I will say that as of late his videos directed by Crazy Al Cayne have been exceptionally creative.
The Sugar Cayne Experiment Vol. 1 is slated to drop real soon and the latest installment in the video series is a track called “Phoenix.” The beat was originally created in 95′ but NDL makes it quite relevant with his thought provoking lyrics.
Not only does NDL provide us with the usual heavy-hitting socially conscious infused lyrics, but the costuming and production of this video is quite avant-garde. NDL is wearing this amazing theatrical white mask that covers half of the face, and he pairs such an iconic mask with a fresh Adidas hoodie. His swag is sophisticated renaissance, which makes for a great combination when enjoying the visuals & the lyrics.
Yet again, Napoleon Da Legend is reminding us why he is such an amazing rapper that needs to be heard. He isn’t just doing the cliche music videos (thanks to the originality, professionalism, and creativity of Crazy Al Cayne.) NDL is continue to make a name for himself in the industry, and his latest video “Phoenix” is just a glimpse of the greatness to come.
