Been a while since I had an unstructured Art of Music Videos. But with a decent influx of new music that’s come my way, I’ve got some materials to work with and thus hopefully bring some entertainment to your Friday. I mean what other good are Fridays except to prep you for the weekends? Let the party roll on.
Quasimoto – Rappcats pt. 3
For a song about a boat load of 80s / 90s rappers Lord Quas has a good flow and beat rolling on. I was unsure if this was the official video, but after some digging and cross checking, this smooth mash-up is in fact the official video paying homage to said rappers in the song. It’s a very slick mix of everything mentioned presented and filled with nostalgia without being sickening about it.
Outkast – The Whole World
I didn’t see too many of Outkast’s music videos, but taking a look at this, he gets a bit of props for sort of being like the Bjork of male rappers. He’s flexible in his styles and the videos he does, like the music he does. Don’t get me wrong, it’s mostly message first, but aptly combined with lyrical delivery and visual impact. Not to mention the videos are easy on the eyes compared to some other shit that gets tossed around.
3OH!3 – Holler Till You Pass Out
3OH!3 was awesome and this is living proof off that point. I mean now that they’re paired with the likes of Ke$ha and that kind of mainstream bullshit they suck and look all professional and too clean for their dirty ass roots. I mean this looks like it was some joke or college project, but like a year after I saw this I got the chance to see them on tour and they put on a good show. Like I’m sure if you didn’t see this video before you saw them recently you’d probably be confused where as I am ashamed. If they went back to this then everything would be super groovy.
Soulja Boy Tell’em – Crank That
I am very hard pressed to know how this idiot became popular at all. This video has the shittiest cheapest shit going on with it yet it somehow managed to rack up well over 104 million views. Dude couldn’t even get the license to use the Superman logo. I feel my intelligence slowly slipping away while watching and listening. I will never do this again. Maybe in another time this could have been good, but my guess is that time is NEVER. A pox on everyone who thinks this is great music and dance.
