Nasir Jones connects with Sony to perform the Illmatic classic “The World Is Yours” a cappella. Shot for Vice Japan, the video is to help promote Sony’s new line of Music Video Recorders (which were used to shoot the video).
Here’s a little background on the series titled “Most Valid Reason.”
In celebration of Nas’ 20th Anniversary of his debut album “Illmatic”, we got to hang out with him and record his accapella version of “The World is Yours” using our Music Video Recorders from Sony (http: //www.sony.net/mvr). He nailed it, obviously. Also known as HDR-MV1, or MVR for short, these bad boys are made so the average Joe can shoot a high-quality music video with relative ease. It doesn’t hurt that they record with CD-quality audio (or the always Internet-friendly AAC format) and are accompanied with a 120° wide-angle lens. Not bad. To watch some more music videos shot with these cameras, head over to the link below and tune in to “Most Valid Reason”, an original music video series showcasing a plethora of fine works created using the MVR. #SonyMVR #YourAudienceAwaits
