Music videos are getting pretty insane, etc.

I think it would a good idea for each post to contain a bit of information about the artist:

TITLE           : Pyramid
ARTIST        : Pyramid Vritra

This is a very powerful song. I love the way it seemingly transitions from this evil, malevolent environment to a benevolent one. This is a very talented artist with some very interesting ideas and visuals.

TITLE           : Hiking / Fif Dim
ARTIST        : Mndsgn (pronounced mind-design)

Absolutely beautiful melody with an epic twist. This video has a ton going on with some dope concepts and stunning visuals. This is also currently one of my favorite songs!

I went through a big Chance phase not too long ago, the kid has talent! This is cool video, nothing insane, just cool. "On the mic like its a dick" lmao Chance with the Slum Village allusion. Word!

TITLE    : Kill Your Co-Workers
ARTIST : Flying Lotus

Fly-lo is arguably the best producer from the first wave of experimental hip-hop producers. He has began to generate some significant buzz in recent years by working with some prominent artists, etc. Another song of his, Zodiac Shit, may have more appealing visuals however this track has some freaky vibes to it.

TITILE   : The Star Room
ARTIST : Mac Miller

Mac Miller is such a talented artist, it's a shame he often gets overlooked because of his appearance. He seems pretty smart and is quite involved in the process (vocals, production, engineering). This video is very dark, which seems to be the trend with lots of his recent material. Clearly he is pretty into drugs, hopefully he stays safe (he says lots of worrying things). Another cool thing about this video is that it touches upon the concept of reality, which I often doubt lol.

TITLE    : America The Beautiful
ARTIST : Homeboy Sandman

Homeboy Sandman has one of the best flows I ever heard, something about it works very well. I think he puts an emphasis on the flow rather than on a highly technical verse, it seems obvious that he could choose the latter if he wants. The video is pretty cool here, the song is awesome.

TITLE    : America The Beautiful
ARTIST : Homeboy Sandman

This has a much stronger visual for sure, even the accompanying track is stronger imo. It has such a scary vibe to it. It should stated that I don't agree with some of the things he touches upon in the track, I'm not sure if even he does; I think just wanted to paint a strong atmosphere.

TITLE    : If I Could Change Your Mind
ARTIST : HAIM

I love this video, it has such a retro vibe to it; the awkward dances, the pastel colors, the neon, absolutely beautiful. I suppose since the grammy nomination this song has blown up, I remember watching the video when it had some low view count.

word! yea homeboy is dope, but he's a bit obscure i suppose. he is signed to an independent label, Stones Throw Records, which is one of the best hip-hop labels; this label has nothing but top-notch talent.

TITLE    : without u
ARTIST : Corbin aka Spooky Black aka Lil Spook

Duddeee I don't know what to say about this... despite the novelty of the name and the video the kid has serious vocals.

Not really a music video but some powerful photos.
". Pelé tells the true story of Sierra Leone's descent into all out civil war during the early 90's, and how the luster of diamonds left millions of people displaced and resulted in untold scores of deaths. Through unique lyrical imagery, Pelé becomes the first rapper to discuss in detail the horrors and tragedies experienced by innocent victims of RUF militias and government soldiers".
