Far too many hip-hop videos are filmed in cliche locations. The corner, and the club, have become hip-hop staples, mostly because of their ease of use. What those kinds of clips will never have are the breathtaking visuals of Illus' "Beautiful Day," which was filmed in Hawaii, and more than lives up to the song's title. I've always wanted to visit Hawaii, and after seeing this clip I think I may want to move there. Perhaps Hawaii's tourism board should holler at Illus and Jules Fox, who shot the video, to do a collaboration.
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
