Thursday Rap Roundup: “Street Shit” vs. “Living Wonderful”


These videos are everything in rap off-day, a microcosm of the genre. Watch how we explain this. Yung Quis goes first, dude feels a little hungrier. He's ABN affiliated but there's a lot to prove. So how do you film "Street Shit?" Black and white. Post a 1080p on YouTube but keep it grainy. Where do you shoot it? Your mom's stoop. What's in the vid? Goon stares and gun hands, street signs and red bandanas. You've seen it before and you liked it then too.

Cyhi Da Prynce comes in with a bigger rep. GOOD Music signee, were you surprised he shouted out Kanye? Are you surprised that this is his life? How do you film "Living Wonderful?" Fuck with the gamma, point the camera at the sun. Where do you shoot it? Beaches and barbecues, end it in a bedroom. What's in the vid? Greek-revival poolside, groupie chicks in hammocks, multiple champagne shots, multiple chandeliers. It looks like it is. The medium is the message, brahs.
