#NewMusicMondays: Smoove Boy Jay

This week’s review is a double hitter. Artist Smoove Boy Jay released the video for his “Chill Bill Remix” this past April and was also featured in Severe Jones’ “Feel So Right” video.

So let’s start with the “Chill Bill Remix” which is actually a freestyle to Rob $tone’s “Chill Bill” from summer 2015. The video starts with a slide of the first amendment, pretty cool I guess, I’m not completely sure what it had to do with the video exactly. But I’m all about getting a message across so cool! The video continues with Smoove Boy Jay in a park….and that’s about it! Not much to really say, the video quality was good. There were points in the video where I thought I was watching one of those old Kung Fu movies since the vocals didn’t match the video when he was mouthing the words. But then again what do you really want in a video for a freestyle. Not the best but definitely not the worst.

The second video with Severe Jones looked like the duo was having a lot of fun. The good vibes and chemistry between these two artist is what gives this video it’s entertainment value. However like the first video there was only one scene. I think the video could have had more locations or even some WOMEN!!! I mean…judging by the title I just really expected to see some women… Ok ok, we all know I might just be a little biased with the last request. But seriously, overall a good video just more locations next time guys (and possibly some females).

New Music Mondays! Soup – Recognize

The video for this week is “Recognize” by Soup!

The video begins with varying shots of the outdoors to match the piano keys in the intro. The video is full of quick transitions and varying outdoor shots. The song seems to be Soup warning other rappers to watch out for him and recognize that he’s dope and on the come up… Let em know Soup!! With references to major players like JayZ in the beginning of the video, I’m not sure what the intended concept for the visual to this song was but here is our review via DJ Blaq Bully on what she thought:

I have to say I struggled on the review for this video. I couldn’t really find the words to express my actual feelings for it. Then I realized, it was probably because I had none. The video quality was fine, definitely a clear picture. However, it just didn’t move me as a whole. A music video for your track should paint the visual to whatever it is you’re talking about. Whether it’s an artistic view or a realistic view of the picture you’re attempting to paint with your lyrics. This video lacked BOTH! I found myself zoning out during most of the video.

Also, some of the effects and transitions made me feel like I was going to have a seizure. Another piece of advice I’d give is to please pick better locations to shoot!!! When I am watching a music video, I would like to be entertained, informed, mesmerized and/or all of the above.

Soup, great effort! Maybe just put a little more thought into the concepts of your video next time. Keep grinding though!
