This is a video I don’t know very much about, but all I do know is that it’s a tribute to the legendary Guru of Gangstarr with a combination of old music video clips from some of the most iconic hip hop artists. Oh and it’s an absolutely dope track!
NOTES TO SELF – NOBODY [ with EVIDENCE ] ** OFFICIAL Video
Remember back back in the day when you had that 1 Homie who would video tape & record every rap video on TV, or every rap show on the radio? Used to go over to the crib and bug out over new sh*t, even if he only caught the last half of the joint, y’all would still go crazy over it right?
Fast forward 15 years, the Homie has a box of 30 or so VHS cassette tapes sittin dusty in a drawer with names like “Rap City”, “Summer Jam”, “The Box”, “In Da Round” scrolled on the side of’em in some youthful hand-styles fit for a wall or two – and you’re like, I need to watch these, take you back, rappin along with every word like it was yesterday. But you ain’t mad raps evolved, cus you fu*k with the new sh*t, cus back then “this was the new shit”.
Maybe that same Homie back back in the day, meticulously catches the last 50 seconds of that new Jeru joint, making Moms change the channel quick fast in order to record it, cus Rap City is on. Leaving you wondering how Prem does it, making them sound so good right, and saying to yourself “I wanna rap like them”.
