This is one of the best videos I ever found. Videos like this are the reason I love the internet. I found this a while ago. This is the Nas Electronic Press Kit for his debut album “Illmatic”, my (and a lot of other peoples) favorite hip hop album of all time. This video is wild. It features the production lineup from the album (Dj Premier, Large Professor, Q Tip & Pete Rock) discussing Nas and the making of the album. It also features Nas’ original home Queensbridge Projects and a cast of people that live there. This was the begining of a new era in rap that came as quick as it went. Enjoy. -Cinematic

Famed 38-year-old video director Hype Williams has worked with everyone from Jay-Z to Snoop to Mary J. and Q-Tip. Now, the director who has made a living of staying specifically in the hip-hop/r&b genres, has finally stepped out of that box and recently signed on to direct Coldplay’s new video for “Viva La Vida.” The song is incredible, and definitely anthemic, and only someone like Hype could bring out all the qualities that make the song unbelievable. Check it out below and let us know what you think about Hype directing rock videos. Coldplay – “Viva La Vida” Video
The ever-eclectic and stylish frontman of A Tribe Called Quest, Q-Tip, is currently working on releasing his sophomore solo album, entitled The Renaissance. It’s been a few years since we last heard some original material from Tip, and all fans of Native Tongue and the early Tribe days should definitely be excited for his return. According to an interview with Billboard Mag, Tip said he’s enlisted Raphael Saadiq, D’Angelo and Amanda Diva for features on the album. Tip also plans to begin the 9-track album with a snippet from an Obama speech, about which he said, “I start the album off with the Obama speech not just because I’m African-American, but because I really feel like he’s a fresh new voice and alternative from what we’ve seen in the political scene in some time.” Check out leaked track “Getting Up” here for now, and go see Tribe and Tip performing live at Rock the Bells.
