Are they hip-hop or alt rock or alt/hip-hop/rock? I don’t care what you want to call em they’re just frick’n awesome. So maybe they’re not the best emcees ever, maybe they’re not truly hip-hop but you what…however you want to classify them they’re still pretty rad. Ill Communication is a great record (maybe their best) if you don’t have it.

Here’s yet another Spike Jonze video for my top ten lists. Like so many of Spike’s videos this one was shot gorilla style. Just out on the streets do’n his thing.
Please enjoy.

Anytime an artist passes before while still in their prime it seems that we get bombarded with attempt after attempt by record labels and directors to get one last video out there for the fans.

When Subline’s Bradley Nowell died of an over does shortly before the release of their self titled 3rd album in 1996 the band still managed to release videos for 3 of their songs, all of which had to find clever ways to cover for the fact that their front man had passed away. Eight years after the death of lead singer Kurt Cobain, Nirvana cut together footage from live performances, interviews and home movies for the video to You Know You’re Right.

It seems that it’s difficult and very fine line to walk when making a video for an artist who has recently passed away. 15 days after the murder of Chris (Notorious BIG) Wallace his album Life After Death was released. The 3rd single off the album was directed by Spike Jonze.

Please enjoy.

Okay, so what do you get when you combine Madlib and MF Doom? Madvillain of course! This video is sick! Just sick! The song by it’s self is amazing. Madlib’s beat is so smooth and more than likely a major part of the inspiration for the later MF Doom / DJ Dangermouse collaboration of Dangerdoom. Throughout the entire album Madlid seamlessly mixes a steady stream of beats and old time radio clips to perfection while MF Doom spits his quirky yet incredibly intelligent rhymes.
Doom’s lyrics are clever enough to keep the song interesting despite not having a hook. That’s no easy accomplishment. His flow is smooth and clam but he still manages to throw a few rhythmic kinks in the preverbal gears. His ability to make sure that his punch lines stand out clearly is possibly his best trait as an emcee considering that he keeps them coming one after anther.

So please do enjoy my # 8 hip-hop video….

So the number 9 video on my list is Fatlip’s “What Up Fatlip”. This video was never a staple on MTV or BET, as a matter of fact I doubt it received any air time. There’s no bling, sports cars, or classy ladies shake n’ their things up in the camera. I know that doesn’t sound like a typical rap video but that’s because this video is anything but typical.
