20521, Talib's new video (comments)
Posted by spirit, Fri Dec-01-00 02:46 PM
Talib's new video for "The Blast" was dope...but no Vinia Mojica!!!!!!!!! AAARRRRGGGGGHHHH. Why? Was she in there and I didn't see her? I was looking forward to seeing her featured prominently in the joint.

Aside from no Vinia, the joint was pretty ill. I liked the concept of "zooming into Talib's head" and basically the video being him daydreaming on the front steps.

What happened to Vinia though? (can you tell I'm obsessed? hahah!)

Bad joke only? Or a bad joke making fun of my desire to see Vinia in the video? It was my understanding she sung the hook, I expected to see her in the video. Nuff said. She didn't get a "featuring" credit either. That sucks.

I watched the video again (I taped it) and there was Vinia Mojica's name in the credits.

Was that her (the light skinned sister) at the end? I'm told she is amazingly beautiful.

If that was her, why didn't she "sing" the hook in the video (you know, mouth the words, like everyone else in videos). Hmmm.

Not only is the concept of venturing into Kweli's mind ill, but I also like the way he's rapping in the rain and it's not even affecting his flow. Little X did a great job with this video. I thought he might have tried to throw in the obligatory women in thongs. I was kind of skeptical about this song being the second single, but after watching the video, it made the song sound even better to me. If that's not one of the purposes of a video, I don't know what is. Still hoping they do a video for Love Language.

>the new verse was mad hot

mad hot?

it's basically a bunch of shout-outs to pharoah and his spitkickers fam. it's okay, i guess.

and that "say my name" punchline talib used was just used by mos in "oh no". they both used it to start a verse. mos used it better though, i think, because talib added the sophmoric "like Destiny's Child". oh, no shit, that's a Destiny's Child song? thanks for letting me know, Talib. Ha.

Very nice visuals..love the whole rain concept, especially the dancing. Well done video all the way through. Keep up the good work...my vote for the next video..."Memories Live" and that should fade in after a little sample of "On My Way"...to add anice touch...that's just my opinion.

haven't seen the video yet, kinda hard without cable, but the most potential for a single would have to be For Women. Kweli speaks like a storyteller and the video could have so much potential. If only the song wasnt as long as it is.

- 1st time poster, long time board reader. The video is hot. When I heard that X was directing it I was mad skeptical. I was on some ol' damn, guess there are going to be some hoes in the joint type shit. But I saw the video yesterday and it is bananas. I love the rain concept, them wearing all black, the dancing in the rain, and even seening Talib's son Amani was cool too.
Wonder what the next single will be?

Good video... simple, yet intriguing. I love Kweli's gestures, they make the video real entertaining, new verse is off the hook.
