Video: Sinden f. G-Side, “G Like Me”

G-Side guide a bus through rural Huntsville in the video for their collaboration with Sinden, “G Like Me.” It’s a nice tour. The camera wisely lingers on stout dollar stores, skyward-shooting fast food signs and rolling seas of kudzu, a Japanese plant that invaded the South and grows on top of anything. Kudzu is generally regarded as a nuisance, but it’s also a powerful reminder of how unruly vacant spaces can become. That clash of emptiness and wild potential is a crucial part of Alabama’s sometimes bland but magical landscape, and “G Like Me,” directed by Pam Tietze, captures that well. Hunstville’s people are another key element—the close-knit party interlude halfway through is its most scenic vista of all.

    Yo I really like your review of this video, the info about the Kudzu is on point. It’s like you have a graduate degree in urbanism or something, most people would’ve overlooked that aspect of the video. Keep it real. thanks.

    Agreed. There’s some mad deep social commentary going on in this video. GET IT G!
