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).

Camp Lo – Double Doors (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on January 12th, 2009 by Hyphen

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.
