Paradox Efft

Cypher Ave presents some dope and interesting videos from some familiar and not so familiar hip-hop and R & B artists. Enjoy and make sure to give us your opinions and feedback.

We’re Stans for Flying Lotus. The music and cerebral creativity from this kat seems limitless. Check out the video for Coronus, The Terminator off the You’re Dead album. The video is directed by Young Replicant.

An other-worldly female warrior rockin a glowing black suit of armor with a flaming steaming mohawk while walking bad-assed through a barrage of meteorites exploding  around her. This is a pretty straight forward and hypnotic but surprisingly uneventful beautiful video. You have to watch because you want to see what happens at the end. Tide: The Paradox Effect is directed by We Were Monkeys & Dawn Richard off her Blackheart album. I Feel Ya Dawn!

To bring a little bit of culture into the mix, here is Prayer Loop Song by Native American rapper Supaman. Watching him dance in full ceremonial dress at the end of the video is totally worth the four minutes.

What would happen if Lupe Fiasco and Talib Kweli had a gay son? He would possible exist in the form of Neale Hurston. The eccentric Cali hip hop artist doesn’t have a full video yet but check out the two teasers from his EP Haute Boheme. Bohemian Dreams comes off as socially conscious while Children of the Bass pays some homage to the Ball Room scene. Haute Boheme is absolutely worth a listen! You can check it out here.

Matt Palmer gives us a video for his pop break up song…Break Up. He gets dumped via text message from his dude while standing in line at the café. He then causes a scene due to emotional distress while the folks around him loose their shit and go nuts. Actually the video is filled with couples arguing out in public. The message and undertone here is cool. For some strange reason all I could think about when listening to the song was the beach, sunshine, rainbows and ice cream cones. The song seems very up-tempo for a sad break up song. At least the cheating boyfriend is a hotty.

    This was a nice visual list of music. Dawn Richards has to be my favorite on the list I must say. She’s so creative I LOVE listening to her music. The type of music she makes helps me write when I’m in a creative mood. Keeps my creative juices flowing. THANKS for sharing Ocky! 🙂

    If I was Matt Palmer I would have taken that song and presented it to some white female pop singer. I would have taken those royalties and invested them back in my career to make a song more suited for me. That song isn’t for him.
