Ben Mor (a.k.a Benyad)
who is best known for being one half of the Hip-Hop duo Blood of Abraham, has
been nominated for a MTV Video Music Award for T.I.’s video "U Don’t Know
Me", which he directed.
“I know it’s cliché but it truly is an honor to be nominated",
Ben Mor said. "Considering [that] only five videos get picked for this
category from the entire year and [it’s a] plus that I get to go to Miami and
drink with T.I.”
Ben Mor, who has directed videos for NAS, John Legend and Young Gunz, started
his career in the early nineties as an emcee, when he and Mazik teamed up to
form the group Blood of Abraham.
The group was signed
to Eazy E’s Ruthless Records and after the untimely passing of Eazy E to AIDS,
the duo’s career was subsequently placed on hold.
Now refreshed and
resigned to independent label Basement Records, Blood of Abraham is gearing
up to release their sophomore album Eyedollar Tree in September.
will include a DVD with two bonus videos and a short film by Mor. The album/DVD
drops September 23, 2005.
The 2004 MTV
Video Music Awards take place at Miami’s American Airlines Arena on August
28th and will be broadcast live at 8 p.m. EST.
