To help promote Sony’s new line of Music Video Recorders, they teamed up with Vice Japan and one Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones, who raps his classic “The World Is Yours” a cappella, with ease.

Watch some behind-the-scenes footage below as well.

In celebration of Nas’ 20th Anniversary of his debut album Illmatic, we got to hang out with him and record his accapella version of “The World is Yours” using our Music Video Recorders from Sony. He nailed it, obviously. Also known as HDR-MV1, or MVR for short, these bad boys are made so the average Joe can shoot a high-quality music video with relative ease. It doesn’t hurt that they record with CD-quality audio (or the always Internet-friendly AAC format) and are accompanied with a 120° wide-angle lens. Not bad. To watch some more music videos shot with these cameras, head over to the link below and tune in to “Most Valid Reason”, an original music video series showcasing a plethora of fine works created using the MVR. #SonyMVR #YourAudienceAwaits
