Another Monday and another G.O.O.D. music Friday release? Our contributors were all unable to contribute this weekend which is a rarity so we will take a late pass on this one but still get it out to you. The beat reminds me of a late 90’s boom-bap joint and the lineup couldn’t be better to destroy something like that. This song is one of my favorite GOOD music Friday tracks but even that is hard to determine since all of them have been fire. Kanyeezy’s album, now called Dark Twisted Fantasy, still has no release date but my guess is it will hit us before the holiday season if they are smart.

Jay-Z – “On To The Next One” feat. Swizz Beats (Music Video) / Response To The Conspiracy Theories

…Um, yeah. The first hip-hop music video of the new decade, and it was different to say the least. The video for “On To The Next One” is not easy to explain. Hell, I don’t think it can be explained. Here are just a few of the “what the fuck” elements found in this video:

  • The liquid being poured over the expensive artifacts.
  • The basketballs on fire.
  • The half-second shot of the crucifixion.
  • The goth dude with the lipstick and the tatoo on his chest.

This list could go on and on. All that being said, I do think this was one of the best music videos I’ve seen in a while. If my assumption is correct, the point of the video was not to necessarily be logical but to be a purely visual experience. Edit: I’ve read the conspiracy theory comments on youtube and NR. To everyone who believes this video is proof that Jay is a freemason/member of the Illuminati, I say chill, take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Hov has probably been aware of these theories on him for a while, and so maybe he used them to his advantage by making a video that would feed the flames. That way, people would be talking about him. Discussion results in the best form of publicity: word-of-mouth. This is just a possibility, but it seems alot more plausible than any theory about Jay-Z slipping hints to his affiliation to a religious cult.
