RUNAWAY


RUN AWAY CHILD.
RUN AND DON'T LOOK BACK.
MAKE HASTE AND MILES OF DISTANCE BETWEEN YOU AND THIS PLACE,
AND TAKE WITH YOU YOUR BROKEN DREAMS.
RUN AND MAKE TIME MEAN NOTHING.
LET YOUR FEET AND THE NIGHT AIR CARRY YOU AWAY,
NO LUGGAGE;
JUST YOUR BAGGAGE AND YOUR THOUGHTS,
AND  THE CLOTHES ON YOUR BACK.
RUN AWAY CHILD, AND DON'T LOOK BACK.

On To The Next One


Now despite all the conspiracy theories about J and this video that are floating about (which by the way i think is bull shit, and I'm not about to make this blog about whether Jay-Z is a Devil worshiper or not) [rolls eyes*], The video is actually pretty awesome. With his vision and director Sam Brown's talent, an edgy, artsy but luxuriously visual video was created. The camera movements are pretty simple but that is only to accommodate the striking imagery, a mix of art and pop culture that obviously makes a strong statement. Since 99 problems rap videos have become more and more artistic and complexed, not just about shiny jewelry, half naked women or overly pricey cars, but real thought provoking content or in other words art.

Oh, and by the way The Blue print 3 is my favorite album for this year I constantly have it on replay so i suggest you lend it an ear.
