The 1990’s is an era of Hip-Hop music that’s very much revered and respected, so it’s not surprising when this decade is referenced to in lines or rhymes by today’s crop of rappers and MC’s.
For the visuals to “1998” Maxo Kream and Joey Bada$$ take their affinity for the era a step further and record a clip so grainy you’d feel the need to fix the tracking on your VCR or rearrange the antenna on your tube (if you were born in 1998 those references will fly way over your head like your wifi network). Throw in some Fubu gear and a single bottle of champagne, and voila, you’re now watching an everyday rap video on Video Music Box in the mid-90s.
Smoke DZA thinks outside the box and utilizes a fish-eye lens to capture his travels around the City That Never Sleeps in the amusing visuals to “Stage 5 Steamer.”
