Unofficially Official Videos.

I’ll be seeing Flying Lotus (w/ Teebs & Thundercat) next month!! and it got me to thinking about this really cool unofficial music video I saw awhile back for FlyLo’s “Sultan’s Request” by Holly Port.

For such unofficial videos these are pretty amazing! “Ghost” is my second favorite Kid Cudi track (following “Maniac“). The resemblance between Mescudi and Basquiat is uncanny, Props to Steve-Ography for pointing that out.

Something a bit recent, High5Collective took bonus track “Collect Calls” from Kendrick Lamar‘s Good kid, m.A.A.d city album and gave it an unofficial visual. The clip chronicles a day in the life of a group of youths, who involve themselves in some daytime drinking and smoking; watch the video to see how their day ends.

Kendrick Lamar – Poetic Justice (featuring Drake)

The main girl is adorable! but I was really happy to see Dom Kennedy, Fresh Daily and Iman Omari (plenty others, I’m sure) make appearances. I prefer physical copies, but either way, good kid, m.A.A.d city is a worthy investment.

FYI: The video was supposed to feature Janet Jackson, but she declined the offer.

Marlee In The Mixx – Don’t Kill My Vibe (Kendrick Lamar Cover)

Accompanied by her band, DMV rapper/songstress Marlee D takes us live in the studio with Marlee In The Mixx. Kendrick Lamar meets Erykah B. on this one and be sure to download their urban jazz tape, Marlee’s Modern Life.
