VIDEO BATTLE: Mos Def vs Glasses Malone vs Page

mosdef-5

In Hip-Hop the battles take place on all different fronts and with the advent of the internet, technology and the barriers of entry are next to nil.

So, AllHipHip.com has introduced a new regular feature to the site, one that pits two or more video against each other. The Ill Community and the readers with decide which video will be victorious.

The winner of the “battle” will continue into the next week where it will face a new set of contenders. The criteria are based on creativity, quality, musicianship and your own personal preference.

This week, we’ve selected three new videos that all have very different audio and visual aesthetics.

First up:

PAGE – “I’m Still Fly”

Page is a Toronto-based rapper that has quickly moved on the Hip-Hop radar, in part due to his collaboration with Drake. But, as a lyricist Page can stand alone and his video supports that notion. The video, directed by the famed Little X, is an aural escape from the norm as Page and Drake float high above the sky amongst the clouds. The video is prefaced with a cool, cartoon skit. Check out Page.

GLASSES MALONE – “60 Million Dollar Flow”

The Cali statesman Glasses Malone kidnaps Hip-Hop and brings it back over to the west with “60 Million Dollar Flow.” The song is straight off the soundtrack to the Benny Boom movie “Next Day Air.” The move is spliced between frentic shots of G. Malone’s raspy spitting.

MOST DEF – “Casa Bey – The Ecstatic”

Last, but certainly not least is the mighty Mos Def, a rapper than always challenges the art of Hip-Hop. This song is free and formless and so is the video. The camera shot is very closely cropped to Mos’ face as he raps and sings to the ever-changing instrumental. This is a must-see, must-hear video.
