I was fortunate to have the opportunity to watch yet another great video. L.A. based emcee Jym Lyfes flexes his lyrical muscle on “The Navigator”, a song rooted in the depths of the everyday struggle and the perseverance to overcome adversity. His lyrics are poignant and the combination of Old School flavor and New School swagger makes for a song that could easily be an instant hit played at sporting events across the nation.
This video contains two of my favorite things; B-boy cyphers (I used to have a mean Windmill) and great use of Mel Bliss’s timeless classic, Synthetic Substitution. I mean seriously, those two things created that “You had me at hello” moment. Couple that with Lyfes’ gruff vocals and charismatic delivery and you have a track that has the potential to take over the airwaves in a flash.
Director Eric Mendoza captured the essence of Lyfes’ rhymes; portraying the physical and mental struggles of an average man. He did a great job connecting emotionally with the audience. You can feel the sorrow and happiness of each moment as the main character struggles with a family death and physical pain only to triumphantly overcome it as time progresses. It’s a great video with loads of potential to make it in mainstream markets.
This is a video that will inspire you each time that you view it. I‘ve watched it three times and grew more fascinated with the video after each viewing. Check it out for yourself. I’m sure you’ll like it just as much. Enjoy!Please enter the url to a YouTube video.
