New York rapper Livin Proof has been working hard since late last year, releasing a song every week over classic hip hop instrumentals. His diligence got him the attention of the legendary DJ Enuff who then reached out to Proof to help him release his Be Classic mixtape.

Livin Proof has now released a new video that pays homage to Nas' classic song "NY State of Mind." The black and white video is a throwback to grimy, street focused videos of the past and has Proof flexing his lyrical muscle over the classic instrumental. Livin Proof's Be Classic mixtape is set for release on March 11.
