In case you’ve yet to sample Yizzo’s excellent Champloo mixtape (grab it here) the first time around, you’re in luck. “Star Target,” one of the best songs on the project, gets a much deserved video and it fits the song’s message like a glove. The visuals complement the music’s tough, intimidating vibes with muted, grainy visuals, but it doesn’t take any attention away from the song. Which is good because “Star Target” is a display of everything Yizzo does right. Instead of jocking off of Wiz Khalifa and other snap-back rappers, the crew seems to find inspiration from the grimier, gritty sound of the early ’90s. Be sure to give their entire mixtape a spin if you haven’t already, as it is definitely one of the better projects to surface in 2012.
