2010 mtv vma / indoob picks – best hip hop video


Here we have some good hip hop videos. Or really, the BEST HIP HOP VIDEOS. I had recently told a friend about hip hop videos back in the day all having that cliché bling-bling look to them. Now? We have upped our game and we have some artistic class and style. I think it will be a good competition and I feel this is anyone’s game.

  • I will say that I do not like the choice of video from B.o.B. He’s got a better video out there, but oh well… we have to contend with “Airplanes” which I feel is a bit normal, but better than average… if that makes any kind of sense. The song is awesome though.
  • Drake & Company have a nice song here called “Forever” and each of them bring their respective talents to make a pretty good song with a pretty good video to match. I heard the song a couple times on the radio and was thinking to myself, wow, they got the hottest people in hip hop right now. I was surprised to later learn there was a video and they were all in it.
  • Eminem is also ruling the world in a way right now. This is his second chance at winning in this category. This video seems normal at first but gets interesting enough that I feel qualifies as what a music video should be. Special effects and all that gooey stuff that goes right along with his vocals. It’s like a brighter version of “I Am.” But this is about hip hop and you know that’s what Eminem is all about straight to the bone.
  • This is the video I would like to win due to the stark black and whites and striking images. I wrote a blog about it a while back. I’m glad this video is in the running because I wish music videos were more like this one. Of course, if EVERYONE started doing videos like this, they’d be accused of copying Jay-Z… but I’m just talking about show me something that captures my interest and maybe makes me think a little bit. This video is definitely On To The Next One.
  • Kid Cudi has quite a number of interesting videos out there as well. However, “Pursuit of Happiness” is my least favorite. It’s well done, though. And it’s definitely in it’s own class… well… other than the hip hop class. But I would’ve picked one of his other videos/songs for a better shot in this category.
