The homies Emilio and Court Dunn link up for the “FTW” video off Life Without Shame. I’d love to play this one on Sound Session, but something tells me it wouldn’t go over that well with the FCC. Haters.
Not a music video, but the homies Court Dunn and Emilio Rojas hooked up for this quick piece where Emilio runs off some things that define hip-hop to him. Really well done and bonus points for the Wu-Tang Financial reference.
One of my favorite songs off Sean P’s Kimbo Slice tape gets the video treatment as part of Court Dunn & NahRight’s One Shot series. Nice little concept and they executed it’s well. The verses are complete fire too. All 3 mc’s kill it, but Sean really bodies the track. Calling out “white women who listen to Lyfe Jennings” was the clincher.
The homey Court Dunn is steadily becoming one of the top directors in independent hip-hop, and the way he’s going, he’ll soon be knocking out clips for some major label artists as well. I’ve highlighted some of his work on TAOD before, but in case you’ve been sleeping, check out this reel to see some highlights (and hear a crazy beat from Apple Juice Kid as the soundtrack).
Featuring Styles P, B.o.B, Camp Lo, Edo.G, Termanology, Donny Goines, Emilio Rojas, J The S, Silent Knight, Quite Nyce & SEEK

The first of the homey Court Dunn’s 4 part video series highlighting the elements of hip-hop creates some ill breaking visuals for Camp Lo’s “Double Doors.” I believe that’s a Thirstin Howl III spotting on the last verse too. Just like the Blue Scholars proved with “Coffee and Snow,” you don’t need a huge budget to make a dope video these days. Major labels should take note.

Silent Knight has been doing his thing for a minute and he’s currently one of 10 finalists in a contest for Loud.com. Part of the competition entails shooting a video, so he linked up with Court Dunn and Restless Films for this simple, but ill, clip for “Pop Culture Shock.” Oh yeah…and it was produced by the big homey Jake One too, so you already know.
