A few weeks after releasing his in-studio performance of “Hakeem,” Nick Rodriguez finally answered my call and released the music video for Illmac’s “Timeless,” off his recently released Still Standing. However, by way of Hip Hop DX, the music video came with some news: the moniker Illmac has become an official name change, no longer being used as short-hand for Illmaculate. While I can choose to humor him in these blog posts, I can’t promise the same for my iTunes library. Sorry. But I’m getting off topic. Although the video was originally slated to drop alongside the album, the wait was more than worth it. Concptually, there’s nothing incredibly new here, and it’s all pretty low-key, but Rodriguez’s use of lighting makes for a very pretty visual experience. Check it out below.
As a bonus, peep the Bar Fight he did with Denzil Porter on TeamBackPack.
