Video: Black Milk - "Sunday's Best/Monday's Worst"
This spring, Black Milk dropped the tracks "Sunday's Best" and "Monday's Worst" as a double single well-received by critics and the blogosphere. Now, the Detroit rapper and producer can add the title "director" to his list of skills for the video "Sunday's Best / Monday's Worst" alongside co-director, Gerard Victor. The video shows a boy struggling with his identity and facing the temptation of the streets, despite his upbringing. This video marks the first one where Black himself isn't shown; he chose to use family members to represent his character.
Video: Dizzy Wright - "We Turned Out Alright" feat. Wyclef
Funk Volume rapper Dizzy Wright continues his prolific string of video releases from his latest mixtape The Golden Age, this time teaming up with hip-hop legend Wyclef in the visual for the track "We Turned Out Alright," directed by John Colombo. The song, which Dizzy described with two simple words, "the truth," explores the loss of friends and comrades in the struggle. Amidst the current hip-hop scene which tends to focus on money, sex and drugs, Dizzy has earned a reputation as a more socially conscious lyricist, and this song continues to demonstrate his commitment to create music he sees as substantive. Wyclef's presence on the track only further solidifies the mixtape's intentional references to "a golden age" of 1990s hip-hop, and the hook recalls his own iconic work from that era.
