Nillie – Hot 16s Vol. 13 [Video]

Calgary, AB – Calgary’s video-making-man-at-large, Levente Kovacs (of LK Visuals) recently teamed up with Nillie for Vol. 13 of the LK Visuals Hot 16 series. This Hot 16 was done over a Justin Timberlake beat. Funky, right? Nillie condenses some of his sickest rhymes into a few short minutes. And there’s a definite “Started From The Bottom” reference mixed in there somewhere.

Apparently the guys took long coffee breaks in between shoots to stay warm – serious dedication. And if you haven’t seen Nillie perform, yet, you should get on that. He’s a crazy performer (for reference, skip to 1:23 in the video and watch him rock out on the air drums). He’s from Montreal so he’s got this exuberant stage presence. He’s definitely on our radar right now. Check out the video below.
