I keep watching this video at the moment. One of the best things to come out the 90's.

I suppose you cant talk about rap videos without mentioning Hype Williams.

i found this on the road rap thread, but im well into this video, aesthetically at the other end of the scale from the ghetto fabulous stuff, but the lofi mobile phone editing grittiness of this is really inspiring

check out the muzzleflash gif's coming from their fingers, and the way theyve sort of blocked out the sky to make it look like its night time...

heres another one from the same guy off of youtube

This one's a bit obvious (Spike Jonze!) but it still amuses me.

Will Oldham is always visually compelling. He should be in every rap video. Shirtless.

sixty40's video for the harmonix 313 track is the thing that's inspired me most hiphop video wise for a while

<object width="640" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/E00c-T9EquE?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/E00c-T9EquE?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="385"></embed></object>

just technically, i don't like the track or the content much. which is a shame.

Oh, how could I forget? This is one of my favourite rap videos. It's pretty much the opposite of the poppin' bottles in the club in 16mm film aesthetic you mostly see now. It's got this whole subterranean Morlock vibe to it. Meth's weird contact lens in one eye? Perfect.

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/T0BlXy3Roj4?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/T0BlXy3Roj4?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

And while we're talking about Morlocks and shit, I suppose I couldn't really end this post without including this one:

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/37wSwAJ98Zk?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/37wSwAJ98Zk?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

re: hype williams, not a rap video, but belly is amazing and definitely the best rap movie ever...although killa season is kind of awesome too and baller blockin is pretty funny...

the opening is too good
