Yesterday was a really good day for hip hop with the release of 2 really good music videos. Ghetto Dreams by Common and Nas off Commons upcoming album “The Dreamer The Believer” as well as Otis by Kanye West and Jay-Z off the newly released album “Watch The Throne”. We really enjoyed both videos. Ghetto Dreams brought us back to that 90′s style music video of the MC’s just doing their thing into the camera in black and white. And then we have Otis with Kanye and Jay-Z just looking like they’re having fun and making good music doing it. Although we haven’t had a chance to listen to the entire “Watch The Throne” album we have heard mixed reviews but need to listen for ourselves and we can’t wait for the release of “The Dreamer The Believer” this fall.
After checking these videos out on YouTube we noticed a HUGE difference in views. While Otis is killing it with over 1million views, Ghetto Dreams trails behind at whats seems as a really low 162,000+ views. To us, that’s a shame. Both of these videos are equally ill in their own way.
What do you think? Ghetto Dreams or Otis? Peep the videos after the jump.
