Nym Lo Shares a Cautionary Tale in New Video for “Speedin'”
Harlem rapper NYM Lo is a member of Smoke Dza's R.F.C. collective, and he just released a video to a song of his own. "Speedin'" is his latest, in which he follows the life of a Harlem teen caught in the web of the streets.
NYM Lo co-directed the video with Rook, which starts in the bedroom of a young male, who's arguing with his mother. She kicks him out for selling drugs, and he sets out to get it on his own. ’Lo remains in the foreground, rapping about what lies ahead for the teen. At the video's close, the kid finds out his girlfriend is pregnant, and drops his phone in shock.
NYM Lo tells the truth the only way he knows how, with lyrics like, "I lost some friends but I ain't never tell they secrets/As soon as i turn my back, they mouth is leaking." "If you ain't gon' kill him, then don't be reaching for that," he warns. "’Cause hollow tips come back, and they'll eat you for that."
R.F.C. released 2013's Ralphie's Forgotten Children, then freed their 2014 album Outsiders. While they may still be a unit, they haven't released anything together in a long time. Maybe "Speedin'" will lead to something new from the group.
