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.


A journey from boy to King.

Politickin’ with John Brown: I Treat My B*tches Like Bernie

Whether he’s pulling out early or going all the way, Bernie Sanders has come an extraordinary distance. Was this longevity achieved by the way he spits game? How he chills with rappers? Or flies in birds? 


But if there’s one thing we learned from Vermont’s OG, it’s how to put 10 toes down for these dimes. How to ride for these ladies so they’ll bring you right to that Oval Office. 

From 2016 ’til Infinity, you already know – I Treat My B*tches Like Bernie.

Politickin’ with John Brown | Melania

With campaign season heating up, it’s time to remember why we do this hip-hop shit. To speak truth to power, give a voice to the voiceless, fight injustice with our words. And sometimes it means hollering at another man’s wife. Another man who just happens to be running for President.

While the media can’t stop talking about Donald’s latest divisive statement, John Brown offers another Trump some undivided attention. A Trump who may help make America great if only she can stop the hate. A Trump who may think she has it all, until she realizes she’s missing what’s most important – a King who can treat her the way every Queen deserves to be treated. This is for you, Melania from Yugoslavia.

A Don that can sponsor ya.

HERE I AM | Music Video [The Physical Version ]

To launch the Here I Am video, the homie Mikey Flocka from FRANK151 helped us create the world’s first music video that you can feel for real. It’s a limited edition book that puts an analog spin on something inherently digital.

See the vision, read the lyrics and imagine how it sounds. If you got one in the mail, feel privileged. If not, contact us and we’ll sort you out. Either way, experience the digital version HERE
