After spending a fair part of the day watching JonTron videos trying to find some inspiration for what to right about, I realized the very thing I was looking for was right in front of my face all along - VIDEO GAMES. I've talked often enough about how hip-hop has music videos that reference wrestling, food, politics and even prejudice -- but what about gaming and gamer culture? Have we ever done THAT list before? Well according to the list I'm looking at we did a list about video game SAMPLES but not a list of music videos with game themes!
So here we go! It's time for ten hip-hop videos about gaming culture and video games.
1.) TryHardNinja f/ Captain Sparklez - "I Came to Dig"
2.) Waka Flocka Flame - "Game On"
3.) Mega Ran - "AVALANCHE"
4.) DJ I-Dee - "The Right"
5.) Ice Cube - "Street Fighter"
6.) Lil' Flip - "Game Over"
7.) Mega Ran x The Regiment - "Kung Fu Treachery"
8.) Brentalfloss - "Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon"
9.) Saigon - "Get Busy"
10.) Wu-Tang Clan - "Shaolin Style" *
* double credit for also being IN a game
Little Brother - "Atari 2600" *
* not an official video but good enough to feature
XV - "When We're Done" *
* no video game references in the video but the "Kingdom Hearts II" sample is tight
