To be honest, Juicy J's "Bandz A Make Her Dance" is probably one of the most recited, talked about, and likely most twerked to records of the year. Its charm is still growing on me, but there was no way I could pass on the opportunity to provide a Video Breakdown for Juicy J's Titan of a strip club anthem. See more...

Lupe Fiasco may have the personality of a walnut, but you can't deny that the guy makes great music and every now and then drops a pretty dope music video. “Around My Way (Freedom Ain’t Free)” was on point, but Lupe really hit the ball out of the park with his "Bitch Bad" video.See more...

Weeks after making her "Triumphant" return with help from Rick Ross and Meek Mill, Maybach Mariah Carey has finally let loose the visuals for her comeback record. While the music video for "Triumphant" does consist of your Mariah basics, take for instance the singer frolicking in a shower of golden glitter and posing in front of an illuminated backdrop, there is the unexpected boxing theme.See more...

Does Overdoz' "Lauren London" music video have anything to do with the actress of the same name? Not really. Is it a great way to spend the next four and a half minutes? Without a doubt. The music video for "Lauren London" might not have a point to it or an overall theme or a non-hipster in sight, but in an odd way it seems to add to the allure of the video. See more...

Roughly two weeks after Maybach Music Group released their "my crew is cooler than your crew (even if we have to recruit another label's rapper)" track "Power Circle" we've been hit with a music video for the song. Even though the video is almost 10 minutes long the only remarkable thing is the way in which Gunplay's hair seems to float above his shoulder.See more...

You’ve already set yourself up when you title your song “Pretty Thug” so it seems like things can only go downhill...and they do. I can't wait for the day when rappers realize that storylines don't create themselves. You can't just throw in a handful of models, a few gun battles, and some unidentifiable drugs and expect it to all make sense. See more...See more...

Filed under Video Breakdown, Azealia Banks
As opposed to her female counterparts, the music video count for Azealia Banks is relatively low. She rocketed to fame thanks in part to her "212" video and there hasn't been too many music videos since. But earlier this week Banks hit us with the visuals for her track titled "Liquorice" and umm the video is quite interesting to say the least. See more...See more...

Maybe I've somehow been hypnotized by the mysterious black and white parking lot or the multiple Kanye West's in the "Mercy" video, but the visuals for this song are pretty dope. I wish there was a little more to the video aside from Kanye, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, and Pusha T rapping in an empty lot but it looks pretty amazing. See more...See more...
