Many excellent music videos debuted this past week. The Airspace covers them here.
“Big Beast”—Killer Mike ft. Bun B, T.I., and Trouble
This Drive-inspired takes R.A.P. Music’s first track and turns it into a thrill ride. The action in this nine minute video is never ending, and it’s worth watching just for El-P’s incredible cameo. El-P, by the way, released the too-good music for “The Full Retard” last week, featuring his gangster squirrel puppet Mr. Killums. This video, too, is very much NSFW.
“Grown Up”—Danny Brown
The catchiest hip hop singles of the year now has a music video. Watch an eerily similar looking child version of Danny Brown do all the things grown-up Danny Brown does while walking the streets of Detroit. And, finally, an explanation for those teeth of his.
Beach House offers up this super-naturally inspired music video from one of Bloom’s standout tracks.
“Mercy”—Kanye West ft. Big Sean, Pusha-T, and 2 Chainz
This Good Friday track just keeps on giving. Its wide-screen, ultra-stylistic video just oozes cool. In black-and-white, with most of the artists (Kid Cudi, CyHi the Prynce, and Teyana Taylor, all of G.O.O.D. music guest) copying themselves in a garage.
Another super-naturally tinged music video from Anthony Gonzalez’s electro-shoegaze group M83, “Reunion” features kids with super powers running from the government. Look for the Adam Yauch and the Beastie Boys tribute a 45 seconds in.
“Wasted Days”—Cloud Nothings
Cloud Nothings have released two videos from their spectacular set at the Grog Shop in Cleveland. Watch their eleven and a half minute rendition of “Wasted Days” keep guitar rock alive for at least another year.
