Hip-Hop, Videos | Ariez Onasis – Victim (Short Film)

Posted by on August 20, 2012


“Victim,” produced by J. Cardim, released just a week ago and finally the short film music video is. The track itself is Hip-hop with a little Dubstep flowing through the background, with the addition of samples from Katy Perry. Ariez takes this one to the chest, pumping out incredible verses that slightly alter your perception of Hip-hop’s future. The video is nothing short of a cinematic masterpiece. The true life gangster vibe from the video is cool to watch, as I’m sure it was to film.

” The goal in mind for “Victim” was simply, to make a masterpiece. The One of One production team brought forth the treatment & I was sold. Coincidentally, I had a performance booked in Athens, Greece around the time. The final product took longer than expected, but exceeded our expectations none the less. I’m very proud to present this video to the public. It is only the beginning of what’s to come for Ariez Onasis. Until next time!”

Videos | Dave Patten – Misérable (Music Video/Mini Film)

Posted by on October 5, 2011

Phillt boy, Dave Patten delivers yet another quality piece for the FNT faithful. Aside from Moufy’s short film for “Miss Newton”, we don’t typically see visual work of this caliber, but Dave Patten, being the multi talented artist that he is, puts forth a very impressive project. It’s almost not fair to simply call this a “music video” and I’d definitely classify it as a “mini-movie”. Not only is the song conveying another strong message, the video directing and production is on point as well. Chances we see Patten making his way to Hollywood for more than just music?

Hip-Hop | Kenton Dunson – Firestarter ft. Ryan Kellie (Music Video)

Posted by on September 22, 2011

Kenton Dunson just released his music video for “Firestarter”, one of my favorite songs off his Creative Destruction 2 album (available for free here) and I couldn’t imagine a better video for it. The video was directed by William J Bastian II who really did an incredible job with it. Better yet, in the next couple months there will be a short film titled Firestarter based on Kenton’s music. The music video contains scenes from the short film, so consider it a kind of preview of what’s to come!

Fresh off his trip to L.A. for the video shoot for “Firestarter,” Kenton Dunson put together a nice little video detailing his trip as well as giving us a sneak peak of his upcoming music video and short film based on his song “Firestarter.” The music video for “Firestarter” should be released in the next couple weeks with the short film debuting shortly after.

The background music to the video is his latest release “Top of the World,” which contains a smooth Passion Pit sample and has been blazing a trail on the internet lately. You can download “Top of the World” for free here. If you have yet to check out “Firestarter” you can listen and download the song below. The song will be the first visual off his critically acclaimed Creative Destruction 2 album available for free here.

Hip-Hop, Videos | DJ Khaled “Welcome To My Hood” | VIDEO

Posted by on February 11, 2011

DJ Khaled, Rick Ross, Plies, Lil Wayne and T-Pain met while in Florida to film this video. “Welcome To My Hood” is said to be included on Khaled’s forthcoming album, entitled, The Best Forever. Look for Plies in this video, he scares me (he’s a little too hard for SweetE).

This emotional track was written by Eminem for a fallen friend. Obie Trice fills in the chorus nicely.

Reggae | REGGAE | Mark Hardy “Just The Way You Are (Remix)”

Posted by on January 18, 2011

If you’re looking for that mental escape to paradise, let your ears lead the way with Mark Hardy’s latest remix to Bruno Mars’ “Just The Way You Are” (posted below, documentary film above). I’ve been fortunate enough to talk to Mark at length about the struggles of Carribean music namely the reggae genre. Every month there are thousands of riddims, remixes, and originals that hit the market, yet none of them seem crip enough for a spoiled American ear to enjoy. Throw this great guy a bone and like his facebook page here and dont be shy to tell your friends about him. If you’re another blog checking out FNT (we’ve started to see him pop up on a few others), post this track up, we don’t want credit just spread the love!

Videos | Kanye West – Runaway (Short Film)

Posted by on October 24, 2010

There’s been some great debate today over this video. Some have hated it and some have loved it. Since the video is abstract, some are struggling with interpreting the film. You can click here to get a full explanation from Kanye himself. Amongst some of the themes are individuality, death, race, and pygmalion.

The main criticism has been that Kanye thinks he’s a God. I’ve got news for you, you’re right! He is an elitist. He’s like that fraternity member that you hate simply because you’re not in a fraternity. What I tend to disagree with, however, is the argument that he should stick to rapping. He may not be a genius, but he definitely has vision and is extremely creative.

This video is just another avenue for him to express his creativity through. When you tell him “he should just stick to rapping” you’re essentially putting him a box. And that my friends, just doesn’t seem fair to me.
