However, I do give him kudos for trying after reading some of comments (like one saying 'wtf. just go rap.' or something similar which pissed me off...clearly we haven't gotten pretty far in contradiction to the Afropunk post). It's clear that the video was low budget and the art director clearly thought he was doing something innovative.
Side note:The shoes the girl is wearing in the vid are really fab though.
Needless to say, I decided to rename this one the sour flavor of the week because it left a bitter taste in my mouth. I think sometimes black folks sort of exaggerated the dark quality of this type of music when they go into it (ex. Wicked Wisdom) but hell, they are paving the way for the rest of us.
Video for 'Mesmerized':
Yay or Nay?I want your opinion. Comment Please.
