This week's Vid Pick isn't a song, or a lyric video, it's a statement. It's a statement from one of my favorite hip-hop artists out right now, Jon Hope.
On "DRMS" Hope is speaking about dreams, not just his dreams, but everyone's dreams. The words are from Hope's upcoming book, yes book, 100 Miles N' Hour In A Parked Car, and the video features footage of from a performance at a Providence College basketball game.
The clip is short, but thought provoking, and inspirational. That's a lot to pack into one minute, but Hope does so with aplomb. Click play, and enjoy.
For more Jon Hope, check out his appearance on my podcast, The Drunk Train.
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.
