RELEASES NEW VIDEO FOR “CRYSTAL CONTROLS” FEATURING ROME STREETZ
New York, NY – New York rapper Nym Lo and producer Statik Selektah have teamed up for a collaborative album titled From the Horse’s Mouth today via MNRK Urban. A powerful blend of Nym Lo’s gritty, raw lyricism and Statik Selektah’s soulful, sample-based production, From the Horse’s Mouth features guest appearances from some of the most respected names in the game, including Dave East, Bun B, Curren$y, Termanology, and Planet Asia. The album showcases the chemistry between Nym Lo and Statik Selektah, who have both established themselves as forces to be reckoned with in the hip-hop scene. In addition, Nym Lo released visuals for the single “Crystal Controls” featuring Queens rapper Rome Streetz directed by New Vegas Films. The video features members of the prominent hip-hop fashion crew the Lo Lifes, including the founder Thirstin Howl III. The Lo Lifes are members of a Brooklyn-based subculture centered around Polo Ralph Lauren apparel and other fashion brands. The movement was most prominent in the late 1980s and early 1990s. “Crystal Controls” is the follow-up to previously released singles “A Kid From The Town,” “Exuma Island,” and “I Love The Game.” Nym Lo, a rising star in the New York rap scene, has been praised for his emotive lyricism and his ability to capture the spirit of the city. Statik Selektah, a legendary producer with a career spanning over two decades, has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry, including Nas, Jay-Z, and Eminem.
Nym Lo’s intro into the music industry came by way of the rap battle circuit. In 2018, he released his debut project, Big Horse. The critically acclaimed project was a compilation of songs that embodied his life’s experiences to that point. “When you don’t have that kind of pressure,” Lo says, “and you can literally go in there and do whatever you want, you’re gonna get some of your strongest work because it’s the most natural.” The authenticity quickly drew in fans, garnering over a million streams across digital platforms. In support of the project, he created a line of high-end, customizable sweatsuits, which doubled as a source of income and a unique touchpoint allowing Nym Lo to further connect with his fans. In 2019, Lo released his follow-up, High Horse, and in early 2020 released the 4 Series EP and spent the rest of the year working on High Horse 2, which was released at the top of 2021, all produced by 183rd St. Both received rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Nym Lo’s music has always stood as a celebration of the rewards of years of hard work and sacrifice, offering a different perspective on the journey that, for he and so many of his peers, started in project staircases and hallways.
