DJ Shortkut’s Video Mixtape.

“DJ Shortkut, renowned turntable wizard of the Invisible Skratch Piklz, recently wrote this very simple message on his Vimeo page in reference to the “90s Hip-Hop Video Mixtape”: “i kept this on the under for too long…but sharing is caring….ENJOY!” You will. It’s 48 minutes of classic tracks and music videos from the era of Carhartt and Timbs expertly orchestrated into one big audio-visual bonanza. We’ll even forgive the fact that it’s billed as all-’90s but starts with a song from the ’80s (Slick Rick’s “Hey Young World”) as it features the likes of East Flatbush Project’s “Tried By 6,” Group Home’s “Supa Star,” and Smif-N-Wessun’s “Sound Bwoy Burriel.” Such a simple concept, but executed so well.”

Lil Wayne’s Sports Corner Episode 2.

Lil Wayne is kicking off the new year with new episodes of his ‘Sports Corner’ series, which show off the rapper’s love for the NFL, skateboarding and more.  Fans of Weezy know what an avid sports fan he is, and though he missed the first weekend of 2012, he’s back with eight (yes eight) new videos for audiences to devour. The clips aren’t only of the entrepreneur’s commentary — one features an interview with San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith. Never one to miss out on a promotional opportunity, Tunechi’s wardrobe consists of a tee from his own Trukfit clothing line. How do we know? Because he says so, very explicitly, and offers a link to his site, which is prominently displayed on the screen. Oh, and each video features friendly reminders about Young Money’s current and forthcoming releases.  Whether you’re into college football, college basketball, or even the video game MLB 7, you can check out all eight of Weezy’s videos below.

Drake ft. Lil Wayne & Tyga – The Motto (Official Video).

‘The Motto’ has been knocking around radio stations (especially on the west) for quite some time now.  And with Drizzy, Wayne, and Tyga being in the Bay to film the video, the town was a twit with talk about when the video would drop.  I got a hit on Twitter earlier today about the video now having any “Bay b*tches” in the melee, and I’ve been on the hunt for the video since then.  The first time I was it, I was quite impressed with the fact that the entire video was filmed here instead of multiple locations, and I knew where damn near every single shot was taken.  (Shout outs to Tyga’s verse that was shot in my favorite club.)  All in all, the video is quite “Drake-esque” with very simple shots and not too much of a direction, but never the less, it delivers.  Check the method below.

Shady Records 2.0 – 2011 BET Uncut Cypher.

No matter what crew your allegiance may be pledged to in rap, there’s denying that the new Shady Records team is a force to be reckoned with.  They proved this during the anxiously anticipated 2011 BET cypher this year.  Surprisingly enough however, Eminem wasn’t the only one spitting pure fire and brimstone.  Check the method below to see how the entire crew stacked up.

Lil Wayne’s Public Service Announcement.

I was supposed to be in a studio session that didn’t pan out today, and as a result I landed in my boys apartment relaxing with some of my closest homeboys.  My homie David Ali peeped out an alert on twitter that brought about one of the most entertaining half hours of my year.  Lil Wayne posted up a 28 minute long video (filmed by his video man Derrik G) that initially started out with Steve Job’s as the topic, but quickly branched out to almost any and every topic that seemed to come to Wayne’s mind.  Thoroughly entertaining, and wildly funny at parts, it’s definitely worth watching the entire half hour.

Asher Roth ft. Akon – Last Man Standing.

It’s always fun to see a music video for a song you’ve liked for quite some time, just like its fun to see an artist who’s work you’ve appreciated for quite some time coming around and putting a unique spin on a classic idea.  Asher Roth is back with the video for ‘Last Man Standing’ which is formatted like flipping though a comic book, but done unlike many of the other pseudo-cliche videos of its kind.  Check the video out below.

The Bombay Sapphire Imagination Installation.

Bombay Sapphire has launched a global campaign called ‘Infused With Imagination’ that pays tribute to the heritage and the origin of the luxury spirits brand.  The artwork was created by a group of designers, led by Darren Simpson, and is formed through a series of illustrated panels decorated with a total of 75,000 crystals.  Illustrator Yehrin Tong was inspired by the definition of infused to create a dream-like image that “feels like an organic mixture of images both natural and mythical”.  The work was installed in a disused church. Panels were positioned to appear as though they were spilling out of the top of a bottle of Bombay Sapphire, if viewed from the right perspective.  Photographs of the installation will be used for print, outdoor and digital ads and a film about its creation will be seeded online and shown in cinemas.

On Set with Young Jeezy & Lil Wayne.

It seems like in the entertainment business, just as in life, some friendships never diminish.  Young Jeezy and Lil Wayne have teamed up multiple times in the past on tracks in the past, and now that Young Jeezy is back from his “absence”, they’re back at it again.  The track Ballin has been climbing up the rap radio station playlists for a few weeks now, so it’s only right that they shoot a video.  Check some of the behind the scenes footage below.

Frank Ocean – Novacaine (Official Video).

Everyone has been hearing the hype about one of Hip Hop’s newest contenders Frank Ocean.  When his track Novocaine hit the radio waves, it was an instant hit, and now that the video has dropped today, the songs success, along with Frank’s seems to have no limits.

Breakfast Interrupted.

When it comes to impressive segments in video, high-def slow motion seems to have an advantage over other methods. Recently a friend of mine who has been dying to get her name mentioned on this blog sent me an amazing video that proves just that point. “Breakfast Interrupted” is nothing more than morning time foods flying all over the place, but the cinematography, lighting, and execution of the entire video is pretty mesmerizing. Check the method below.

Skateboarding Slickrock.

The only thing surprising about this video of skateboarders grinding the red rock of Moab, Utah, is that I haven’t seen it sooner. It was filmed by Thad Croskey and features the skating of Fred Gall, Jack Sabback, Aaron “Jaws” Homoki, Ryan Lay, Ben Raybourne, Ryan Reyes, Jon Goemann, and Kenny Reed.  Check the method below.
