What’s On My iPod: Rik Cordero

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/11/what’s-on-my-ipod-rik-cordero"> Rik Cordero gets the infinite "hat tip" in my book. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Rik for quite some time and first met him at a production house through a mutual friend circa 2004. Not knowing his aspirations as a director, I slowly saw his videos drop on YouTube and soon realized homie's success was inevitable, as each project featured more recognizable artists. I would be remiss to deny his Filipino roots not emitting some sort of pride as we share the same nationality. Without a doubt, his work is paving the way for future Pinoys to pursue this career path. Still, five years ago I couldn't conceive another one of my people being categorized in the same breath as Hype Williams or Benny Boom and Rik has - literally. His nomination for Director of the Year at the 2009 BET Awards is undeniable proof that Rik and his production company<a href="http://thisisfrank.com/"> Robot Films</a> are names to consider for all top flight musicians.
