View Full Version : Some complaining on hip-hop music videos

The shit really makes me cry. Is there any fucking hip-hop music video made in the last five years which doesn't show rapper with his crew wearing oversized jewelry, driving large cars and squeezing with girls in bikinis? I mean, I'm fucking tired, always same, same shit. Even Wu videos are doing same shit (I was shocked seeing that GZA video where he does some stupid dancing in the club, or that Prodigal Sunn shit posted today in Wu Chamber subforum). Turn anytime on MTV and you see that stuff, this is really depressing.

Where are those original, fresh stuff, goddammit? Like Hype's videos for Busta, or ATCQ's videos, or even early Nas videos? And where are real street videos like NWA's and early Mobb Deep's? Why the fuck it isn't possible to make an original video with that fucking large budgets they all spend?

Oversized jewelry, driving large cars and squeezing with girls in bikinis all rule though.

well what do you expect. These guys DO have the girls, the cars, the bling. They are millionaires. Why would they make videos with them walkin threw the hood, when we all kno thats not where they at

I rarely watch music videos. Watching music makes it worse.

Try listening to your albums in a totally dark room vs a bright room....notice a difference with the sound? Don't use your eyes...only use one of your senses and that sense will be enlightened.

One time i listened to Illmatic in total darkness....after a little bit I didn't even know where the speakers were....I was lying down and as Nas was telling the story in poetic form, it was like I had a fukkin out of body experience....it was hard to explain....it was like I was on the streets on NY or something.

And those reasons make albums like that even better.

there are other reasons why music sounds better in the dark.

wow.

Yea I agree with you man. Its the commercial shit thats ruining everything with its wackness. But the real artists still come out with good videos.

Yeah, yeah, that's fresh. Dope vid, really, that's hip-hop. The hip-hop I'd like to watch, with message in lyrics and video. It's the shit, props to Talib and props to Cap.

So why do they have to emphasize that in every fucking video, like we don't already know that. They could do something better, Eminem was doing fire videos even after becoming a millionaire.
