AVG (Audio/Visual Gem): Joell Ortiz’s “Food for Thought”

I found this video on my dude Cal Ullman’s Hip Hop & Libertarianism blog. Check him out as he brings a fresh(er) perspective to the grand world of hip hop.

This song by Slaughterhouse member, Joell Ortiz,  is a take on Common’s classic ode to hip hop – “I Used to Love H.E.R.,” but what got me is the clever usage of Twitter for the video concept. Complete with well-placed @replies and RTs, it is a pretty slick idea for a video. Not to mention, the lyrics by Mr. Ortiz are pretty terrific too.  They probably should have actually recorded the tweets, so it didn’t look like it was Photoshopped. Beggars can’t be choosers, I guess. Check it out though, it is dope.
