Editorial: Fifteen Bizarre and Surreal Hip-Hop Videos
Posted by Steve Juon at Tuesday, May 24th, 2016 at 12:00AM :: Email this article :: Print this article

[Max Ernst's art via Wikipedia public domain]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon: I can honestly say this has been one of the trickier lists I have attempted to compile. "Surreal" is a word that evokes so many connotations, but the best synonym is "bizarre" which is why I included it in the title. I'm not attempting to adhere to the surrealist artistic movement or follow the precepts of it as laid down by Andre Breton; rather this is more an attempt to showcase hip-hop videos that have a surreal quality.

What does that mean in this context? They may not make sense from a plot standpoint - a narrative you can follow from beginning to end. They may seem dreamlike in that respect. They may also use images that don't seem rational.

Audio: Mike Melinoe f/ DC - "Suicide B4 29"

RJ: Mike Melinoe’s “Suicide B4 29” flashes between images like the last moments of life--but instead of providing clarity, they're tangled and twisted in unstable and impossible ways. He’s “Leo with a Grammy”, “Susan Sarandon in Panties”, and “Bruce Lee on acid.” He’s moved out of his momma’s house--but the extra room is filled with "hella roaches" and space for the worst parts of his mind to roam and express themselves.
