Classic Video - Souls of Mischief: "93 'til Infinity"

It's funny, but hip-hop videos have dramatically changed in the last fifteen years. Now it's all about bling and Cristal - but then there are videos like these ones from back in the day (and like the "Scenario" video as well) that were just about the music. Can you imagine a hip-hop video these days where the group isn't on a fancy soundstage? Where instead, they were walking through the Humboldt forests and beaches? I can't see it.

It doesn't hurt that the song itself is fantastic, and one of the best hip-hop tracks from the 90s, but the video is such a throwback to the days when seemingly every hip-hop video wasn't the same. By the way, if anyone has a full version of the video for "Sometimes I Rhyme Quick" by Nice & Smooth, drop me a line. It's one of my favorite songs ever, and you can only find a clip of it on youtube.
