26 Mar

Directed by ZFCL this is one of the most interesting and beautiful pieces of cinematic artistry I’ve seen. Their website is dope too. They make my inner candy kid very happy.

 Hells to the yeah……..this video is like all my childhood fantasies of the perfect universe compressed into an illegal stimulant. It took me a minute to warm up to the actual song but the visuals are just the way I like em….triptastic

Eyegasm: Erykah Badu + Rick Ross = Window Seat (Remix)

9 Aug

This video makes no sense, but it really doesn’t have to….it’s fuckin awesome, she’s fuckin awesome, and yes the expletives were necessary because that’s just how awesome all this awesomeness is.  Everybody has those artists they would ride or die for, literally. Erykah is and will always be at the top of that list for me. If she called me right now and was like, “Yo Keema, the Hip-lluminati tried to recruit me so you know I had to bust shots,  cause I’m not going out like that, I’m on the lam and I need  back-up, you down ?” I’d be like, ” Yo, you might as well change your name to Thelma and just call me Louise, let me grab some fresh panties and my tooth brush and I’ll meet you outside.” Yeah, it’s like that.

ENDLESS SUMMER……..WEST COAST, YES……

All I can think about is moving out west, that’s ALL I think about right now, I try not to think about it too much because I don’t want to hype it up in my mind, then get out there and be dissapointed, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. How do I know? Cause The Memorials told me so……….. 

I HATE HOW RAPPERS USE THE TERM FRESH SO LOOSELY….

Dopeness from my favorite Kennedy. Dom just dropped the video for 1997 off From The Westside With Love. One man, one woman, one Mercedes, open desert. Director Matty Barnes doesn’t kill us with meaningless filler, just some nice atmospheric visuals to compliment the laid back elegance of the track and Dom’s always euphonious flow. Peep it……

Why is the world ugly when you made it in your image?

Goodness, I’ve been gut-checked.  Music is powerful my friends, of course that is something that’s been understood since man first learned how to communicate through utterances of sound. Since MTV blasted off in 81′ , videos have become an equally powerful component in completing the arc of masterful storytelling. The video for ‘Dear God 2.0’ is one of those pieces of beautifully filmed and poetically conceptualized artistry that sends shivers up and down my spine. It’s something about the cold red glow washing over the streets,  the tattered and stained uniforms of the young stick up kids, Jim James’s melancholy tinged expression, the fluid motion of the outside world floating by as we hitch a ride to nowhere in particular , and the hazy lights going in and out of focus much like the fluctuating sense of security the average human being feels on any given day in this crazy world. All of these elements blend immaculately to create the schizoid ambiance of an introspective city night spent searching for GOD, searching for the beauty in the ugliness………
