Lyric Jones & Phene Nostalgic Blast from the Past “Reasons Why” Video
In a world constantly evolving with new sounds and trends, it’s refreshing when artists take a step back and pay homage to the golden eras of music. Lyric Jones, the multi-talented emcee, vocalist, and drummer, is making a bold statement as she kicks off 2013 with a music video that harks back to the classic 90s vibe. Teaming up with Pennsylvania native Phene, Lyric Jones brings us “Reasons Why,” a track that not only captures the essence of the past but also delves into life’s universal questions. Filmed by KD Gray in the vibrant heart of Atlanta, “Reasons Why” transports us to an era where hip-hop was marked by its raw authenticity and soulful beats. The track is more than just a song; it’s a thoughtful exploration of patience and introspection, particularly from the perspective of indie artists navigating the complexities of the music industry.
Phene’s verse is a candid and unfiltered take on the music game, offering a straightforward perspective on the challenges and triumphs that come with being an artist. Lyric Jones, on the other hand, masterfully weaves her verse and sultry hook to encapsulate the curiosity of a child maturing into her mid-20s. The chemistry between the two artists is palpable, further elevated by the skillful production of Marcotiks and the deft cuts by DJ Dub Floyd. NAS acapella on vinyl brings the street intelligence to the track.
The music video for “Reasons Why” is a visual treat that adds depth and context to the already captivating track. Lyric Jones, who also directed the video, invites us into her world, where she’s joined by special guests including videographer Brian Price and his daughter Sage. Notable appearances by J-Live, AMP, and DJ Dub Floyd enhance the video’s authenticity, creating an atmosphere that’s reminiscent of a community coming together to celebrate the essence of hip-hop culture.
As the video unfolds, it becomes evident that “Reasons Why” is more than just a musical collaboration; it’s a narrative that speaks to the hearts and minds of anyone who has questioned their path and purpose. Lyric Jones and Phene are not simply artists; they are storytellers, using their craft to explore the nuanced layers of human experience.
