Kyle Bent more than delivers on his new single “Live Forever”. The video is very high energy and almost gives you a early 2000′s Black action movie a la’ Romeo Must Die, Cradle To The Grave, etc. Great job with this one.

NEW VIDEO: Kyle Bent “Truth Or Nothing”
By LG |

One of the slickest videos of the year. You can chalk it up to Kyle Bent having a phenomenal editor, but this video is aesthetically perfect. The song itself is great as well, mixing political views with witty rhymes. I thought it was also great having the real world footage peek in every once in a while.

After a very promising trailer, Kyle Bent delivers a decent video for his new track. The song itself however, is not all that great. There are bars where Bent decides not to rhyme at all, and others where you can’t understand him.

The one thing that should always be consistent throughout your brand, (yes, you are a brand), is your name. Occasional name changes aside, your name always be the same. But when upcoming rapper, let’s call him “Kid Magic”, releases new music and his YouTube account calls him “K.I.D.
