Hip Hop Video Classic’s

Am up late watchin MTV Base Takeover of all things…its like Yo MTV Raps without the cool ID’s in between the videos.
Their playing some pretty dope tracks, alot of 90′s classic. I even got on down with my bad self to Arrested Development…the two arm African skank…you know the one!

Anyways its crazy the stuff they got away with back in the day in terms of visuals…theres no way you could make a video nowadays with full body bags, desert eagles, working bongs or whatever else you might fancy, that actually would get played on the popular music channels!

Mostly this is due to heavy censorship, thanks to all us hip hop fans running round selling crack, gang banging and gatting people. We spoiled it for todays street poets who now have to bargin with video commissioners and music execs on if they can be smoking on camera, let alone brandish a steel baseball bat during every chorus in a ominous beat down shot…however it didn’t mean a thing but a chicken wing back in the day.
