As “Old Town Road” makes a bid for an 18th straight week atop the Hot 100, Lil Nas X is still scavenging the internet to help those he believes deserve a shot in the limelight. An orchestra medley performance of his entire 7 EP by an individual under the YouTube username of TheDreRock caught his eye.
“Finding talent in the middle of the night. The LIL NAS X Orchestra Suite,” Lil Nas X tweeted. The clip finds DreRock, who also goes by ElDre, playing violin, viola, and cello simultaneously, which is synced up together to succinctly form all of the tracks from Nas X’s 7 project within a four-minute span.
“This was the first video where I arranged sheet music for it prior to playing [and] recording it,” DreRock noted on his YouTube page. “I don’t have a stand that doesn’t block the shot so I ended up literally hanging the pages from the ceiling with tape, which you can see in the cello shots. You shouldn’t raid area 51, but if you do, this would be epic theme music for when you’re doing it, just saying.”
Listen to the orchestra medley performance below.
