Music videos have always been a great source of style inspiration. The hip-hop genre in particular is one of the most forward and influential of all visual mediums. I put together some of the videos that have had a great influence on me way before I started directing them.
By no means is this list definitive but hopefully you’ll discover some gems you didn’t know about or revisit a classic you haven’t seen in a while. You might even pick up some style tips along the way. Thank you to Complex for the opportunity to share some of the work that has helped shape my own.
