Watch These: Frank Ocean "Dust" and "American Wedding"

Frank Ocean "Dust" (Stop Motion Animation) from Sam Frank Productions on Vimeo.

One thing I love about the OFWGKTA crew is that they have inspired so much creativity (with their creativity). I've been loving Frank Ocean's "Nostalgia Ultra" tape and apparently I'm not the only one. Two of my filmmaker/producer friends created videos inspired by his songs. Above is Maya Table's video for "Dust" and below you'll find a video for "American Wedding" made by the homie Artemus Jenkins.

Watch This: Jasiri X "Three Little Girls"

It's Woman’s History Month, and Jasiri X decided to shed light on how violent this society is, especially towards woman and girls. “Three Little Girls” tells the stories of the senseless murders of Christina Taylor Green, who was killed during the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, Brisenia Flores, who was gunned down by anti-immigrant militia intent on starting a race war, and Aiyana Jones, who shot to death while asleep in her home, by the Detroit Police Department, while they were filming a reality TV show.

Written by Jasiri X and featuring 10 year old Hadiyah Yates, “Three Little Girls” was produced by GM3 and directed by Paradise Gray.

Watch This: Wiz Khalifa "Roll Up"

Thanks to the homie Arthur Pitt, I've been down with Wiz since the kid was 16-years-old. It's good to see him shining -- even if that means being surrounded by "classy" girls like Cassie and Amber Rose.

Watch This: Distant Relatives "Patience"

DISTANT RELATIVES "Patience" from nabil elderkin on Vimeo.

Happy Monday... and what a Monday it was. The Packers beat up my Steelers in the Superbowl and my day largely consisted of long brain-numbing phone meetings. Although at least one of them was pleasant and productive. But the day is almost over. Watch the video and enjoy your evening!
