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...

When it comes to a great music video the things I usually look for are man-eating strippers, Quentin Tarantino-esque car chases, and rappers wielding axes. And Killer Mike's music video/mini-movie for "Big Beast" pleasantly fits all that criteria. And as a bonus we even get a cameo from El-P which seems like a rarity. See more...See more...

Sure, there’s no actual appearance from Kanye West, Jay-Z, or even Frank Ocean in this “No Church In The Wild” music video, but with visuals this amazing it doesn’t really matter. The video is directed by French director Romain Gavras and seems to fit really well with the somewhat tense tone of the song. See more...

Filed under Video Breakdown, Nas
I'm sure we were all expecting something pretty dope when it comes to Nas' "Daughters" video and we're given just that in the visuals for the song which come courtesy of director Chris Robinson. Nas keeps it pretty real as we see the various stages in his daughters life through her eyes, from infancy to the turbulent teen years.. See more...See more...

If the mere fact that DJ Khaled’s “Take It To The Head” music video was filmed at a ride at Universal Studios wasn’t already funny enough there’s plenty of other hilarious gems in this video. Take for instance Chris Brown being trapped in an electric cage while singing like his life depended on it. Which it may have, that water looked pretty intense. See more...See more...

Nas and Nicki Minaj frolic in a garden, Nas buys Nicki Minaj fancy things, Nicki Minaj dances with Chris Brown, Nas and Nicki Minaj return to the garden. And that's pretty much the "Right By My Side" music video in a nutshell. Should I have added a "Spoiler Alert" warning? See more...See more...

It doesn't get much classier than riding around the streets of Manhattan in a classic Rolls Royce and Nas does just that in his "The Don" video. There's also lots of red wine sipping, rooftop chilling, and other activities worthy of a Don And you've also got some really dope visuals of New York City as well. See more...See more...

Filed under Video Breakdown, R. Kelly
R. Kelly may be a lot of things, but selfish he is not. While it's great that R. Kelly wants to "Share My Love" I don't understand why he has to do it in such a creepy manner. If there's one artist who should steer clear from "creepy" it's hands down Mr. Kelz. See more...See more...

Abu Dhabi, London, Berlin, Oslo...it'd probably be more difficult to name a city J. Cole didn't feature in his "Sideline Story" video. Well, I guess showing everyone how many global cities you've touched down on in a short period of time is a great way to show the masses you're no longer on the sidelines. See more...See more...

Filed under Drake, Rihanna, Video Breakdown
Combine Drake, Rihanna, an acrobat, a bunch of random animals, snow-capped mountains and what do you get? Well, you've got yourself the music video for "Take Care." While I'm not quite sure if a raging bull and Drake's hand-dancing should ever be in the same video it does make for some intriguing imagery (the raging bull not Drake's hand-dancing).
