Do you remember when you had to wait for MTV’s The Lick or Yo MTV Raps to see the best new videos? We do! Kazabon even had a VHS of the her favourite videos, from a time when Hype Williams was behind nearly every great video and when artists tried to out-do themselves and their peers with the hottest new video. We have decided to dig into the HDD video vault to bring you some of our favourites.
This week’s Video Vault selection is 808 by Blaque. After hearing the sad news that the group’s rapper Natina Reed passed away in a car accident earlier this week, we wanted to pay tribute by celebrating the group’s music. 808 was Blaque’s first single and featured their mentor Lisa Left Eye in the video, it sounds just as good today as when it was first released.
