Video: Nas - Hip-Hop Is Dead

"Hip-Hop Is Dead" is the lead single from Nas' eigth studio album of the same title.

Review:

Poor Nas. Poorer Video. Def Jam gets away with using my brother’s allowance to create a grimy, warehouse feel that reckons the question: what is this video about? I’m still not sure; Nas looks perplexed, either forgetting or not knowing he’s in front of a camera instead of a mirror.

I get it, the video is supposed to represent a theme; the video is dead, the funds are dead, and the cinematography is dead. Good thing hip-hop isn’t dead, right?
