MTV released nominations for the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards yesterday. Nominations for the “Best Hip Hop” video included, “3005,” “Hold On,” “Berzerk,” “Black Skinhead,” & “We Dem Boyz.” I have no clue how MTV came up with these nominations. Kanye’s video was horrible, the viral viral video for “3005” was better than the final version and Drake’s “Hold On” video was weak in my opinion.
How can a video like J. Cole’s for “Crooked Smile” be over looked? Artists who take the time to drop quality visuals need to be rewarded for their efforts. The “Crooked Smile” video told a story and evoked emotions. What music videos do you feel should have been nominated?
