[VIDEO] Sweet Simplicities – RUXSTEEZ (Ryan Leslie x Talenthouse video contest submission)

This video I’m posting is a beat making video I did for the Ryan Leslie x Talenthouse video contest. You have 5 min to showcase yourself making an instrumental or a full song. Big shout out to my hard grindin’ cuzzo Marco Bercasio for shooting and directing the video.

Enjoy the video! PLEASE VOTE @ http://www.talenthouse.com
