They say a picture’s worth 32 bars and a hook. Give or take.

In this animated short – the first of its kind for me – step into theBURBSLIFE gallery. Where the world becomes the canvas and the obstacles become the art. No pictures please.

Considering my Politickin’ videos didn’t exactly inspire a generation to vote, I sobered up and penned this earnest letter to whoever knows what time it is.

October surprise. In a year of Politickin‘ and Gunocide, it was time to catch a body of original work. An offering from one Griot to another. Inspired by luxury. Manifested through hustle. Welcome to theBURBSLIFE

There’s two sides to every story. Unless you’re the King of the Burbs. Then there’s two sides, cocktails and room for desert.

002 #MassAppealMVN w/ Matt Alonzo

mvn_mattalonzoThe biggest night for music videos returns with the prolific Matt Alonzo + the best videos from August 2016.

Introducing #MassAppealMVN

Introducing Mass Appeal Music Video Night from Music Video Night on Vimeo.

Music videos don’t get the attention they deserve. Whether it’s over-saturation, content fatigue or lack of quality control people tend to view videos passively from their devices. I’ve made a handful of videos over the years and enjoyed doing screening parties. I thought it would be cool to expand this idea – giving music videos and their directors a consistent communal platform.

In partnership with Mass Appeal, we put together #MassAppealMVN at Delicious Pizza in Los Angeles. Each month we screen a mix of our favorite new videos and feature a guest director. This short video, by Jessica Rew, gives an overview of the night and features footage from our first event with Video God.
