Favorite Videos of 2010
I just thought about doing this post last week, so I’m probably missing a lot of other good videos. But for now, here’s my list:
Top Picks (in no particular order):
Fatgums x Bambu - Peddlin’ Music
This was one of my favorite songs from their Peaceful Riot EP in ‘09. I’m definitely glad that Fatgums decided to make a video for it…I just didn’t know the dude had skills like that! I can only imagine how long it took to do all that stop-motion stuff.
Rocky Rivera - Trick Habit
Just an all-around creative video! The production value on this joint is top-notch.
Dumbfoundead - Jam Session 2.0
This is probably the most inspiring video out of the bunch. It’s amazing to see how all these musicians/artists came together and created something through the wonders of technology.
Janelle Monae ft. Big Boi - Tightrope
Not only is this a great song, but it seems like it was also a really fun video to shoot. The dancing is off the chain!!
Cee Lo Green - F**k You
One of the catchiest songs I’ve ever heard + a child version of Cee Lo = need I say more?
Blue Scholars - Lumiere
A really dope fan-submitted video that fits the song well.
Dumbfoundead - Up in the Air
This is the winner that Dumbfoundead selected for a fan-submission contest. This might also be my favorite song of the year (it’s been in constant rotation the last couple weeks).
Lupe Fiasco - I’m Beamin’
I’ve heard people (aka Underground Backpacker Elitists) say that Lupe went too “mainstream” with this, but I disagree.
Power Struggle - ArtOfficialFreedom
A great song accompanied by a good video that depicts the different aspects of this artist’s life.
Grynch - My Volvo
I posted this video last week, but this is just a real ass song/video. A lot of rappers don’t even own the cars they have in their videos, but this guy just put it all out there. Ain’t no shame in his game.
