WARNING: This picture has absolutely nothing to do with this blog post!!!
I was, trying to march crotch-first into a steamy mess of new
hip-hop, when my wasted ass – detached from whatever cranial
department it typically receives commands from – stomped across
Austin for a set by Mobb Deep. I just can't resist Havoc and Prodigy;
no little kid rapper with cool shades and an ironic t-shirt can curb
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.
