In case you haven't noticed, Ricky Shabazz and the Boom Bap Boys (a/k/a Director Nicolas Heller - think The Streets) have been responsible for a serious chunk of the most creative and downright dope hip-hop videos of 2010. Though I don't know Heller and his team personally, we seem to have comparable taste; this year they cut clips for the likes of Homeboy Sandman, Time Crisis, and C-Rayz Walz - just to name a few.
There's some serious vision here; in short time I have no doubt that Heller will become the go-to dude for forward-thinking rap videos (if he isn't already). But for now, he's dropping a FREE mixtape featuring some cats he's been working with, and others who I hope he'll work with soon. Brought to you by Fameless Fam and UGHH.com.
