Sort of bummed that the video for Red Nation didn't pop up on that list. While not being a particularly great video, the video earned a different feel after being banned from MTV. It was sort of like listening to N.W.A.'s "Fuck the Police" when I was a wee tot and feeling the rebellious spirit pump through it.
Also, even though I think Chris Brown should be dragged out and beaten in the streets, the Scott Pilgrim inspired video for Best Love Song was probably the coolest video of the year.
I think a late entry would be Arcade Fire's Sprawl II: Mountains Beyond Mountains. Oh! I am not sure if it came out this year, but the Anna Kendrick starring LCD Soundsystem video for Pow Pow was awesome as well.
Damn, for being a "full U.S. tour", there's sure a lot of great states he's missing. I'd love to see Drizzy but he doesn't seem to want to come within a 500-mile radius of me. I wonder why? Maybe it's because I'd run on stage naked so he could see my Aubrey Drake Graham tramp stamp.
I wish I could go to Paid Dues. Fuck.
Rappers and their "hopefullys." I highly doubt we'll see a new Slaughterhouse album in April, but I hope we do. I've been waiting years. Truly the best thing in hip-hop right now. It's about time they claim their crowns.
Haha, that Danny Brown video is nuts. I love the dude and I love most of the shit he puts out, but I honestly appreciate him more as a feature. He's ALWAYS stealing the spotlight when he's reduced strictly to sixteen. Dude's crazy.
Gah, STILL haven't had time to listen to The Dreamer, The Believer but I've been psyched beyond belief.
