Nems-What It Do (Official Video) Prezidents day

Nems Guttah

MCMI affiliate FYL general Nems Guttah drops the official video of his song “What It Do” off his debut album Prezidents Day on Creative Juices Music. The song is tough, with production by Al’Tarba. The video was filmed and edited by Block Alliance Films. It’s filled with dope images of Coney Island, which Nems reps heavy on every song or guest appearance. The video is well shot and edited. Although barbershop scenes and MC’s rhymin’ in front of the projects are sort of obligatory, the  visuals of the Ferris all lit up wheel lit up at night behind Nems and the shots of the Cyclone and other parts of Astroland are really original and eye catching. The combination of daytime and night time shots are held together by the use of reverse negative effects and the shot of Nems in his album cover art, rhyming. Props on the video.

NEMS “MY OWN WORST ENEMY” (Video)

Nems tattoo armsThis song has mad heart. We’ve all been there, made mistakes, realized we kinda screwed up. But at the same time, live and learn, what doesn’t kill us, makes us stronger. Sounds like ya boy Nems is growing up. 24 years old with wisdom beyond that. A lot of people don’t reach that self-analysis stage until they are 34, or 44 or .. never.

Third verse is my favorite:

Def Jam wanted to sign us, SHADY wanted my story,
But my reputation entered the room right before me,
True story, the drugs had me empty,
When I’m focused though, no man can stand against me,

But the Devil had me fooled, thinkin that I need something to perform,
When I don’t need NUTHIN’ to get on,
Ecstasy diet was the quiet before the storm,
Pocket fulla drugs required to do a song…

I did it all night long and slept the day away,
Woke up when it was dark out and couldn’t stay awake
I had to change, couldn’t take it any longer,
It didn’t kill me, so I guess it made me stronger”

The beginning is a freestyle a capela. The actual song starts at 0:56. Video edited & directed by: H.VIEW. Not sure who did the beat or who’s singing, but its dope and really sets the mood for what Nems is building on.

Shout out to Creative Juices Music. They have a lot of talent on their roster. Go check them out.

NEMS ft. VANGAURD & IRON SOLOMON – “I GET DOWN”

NEMS ft. VANGAURD & IRON SOLOMON – “I GET DOWN”

Coney Island’s own FYL Prezident, NEMS enlists EOW vets Iron Solomon and Vanguard (Svengali Bros.) for this sample off the album PRESIDENT’S DAY (available on iTunes NOW!!!), which has been getting a lot of burn in my iPod lately. Although I have had it over a month, I got busy working on the site and really didn’t give it the full attention it deserves for awhile. This video reminded me (isn’t that what videos are for?) to give it a full listen. First reaction? This is Hip Hop. This is Brooklyn. (With a little assistance from Manhattan and Jerzey). Something from this album will probably make its way onto Brooklyn’s Finest Vol. 2, currently in the making, if not some new sh*t from Nems Guttah, C.I.’s finest.
