Off the shiz with fliz is what Yinka Diz has done with a lom so “Hear Me, Tho” and let it flow like Brandon Ho, you know what I’m talking about, right? As President Obama says, make sure you get a bag of Lays and let it display while you eat five soufflés. The song was produced by Superville, be ill.
Let me say this off the top: this is not a list of every single music video that was made in 2012. Making a video is now the norm these days, and at times the amount of videos I have a chance in posting is overwhelming. What this is is a listing of my favorites of music videos I have seen and enjoyed. It could be due to the artist, it could be due to the song, it could be a mixture of both, plus some visuals that I found pleasing to my eyes and thus the mind. I did not have a specific video I felt was the absolute best, but I felt these stood out for whatever reason.

In the !llmind-produced “Overnight Scenario”, the self-proclaimed “African Hendrix”, Yinka Diz, talks about how he’s not going out like that, and demonstrates why he’s an MC who writes and rhymes well. Having the right flow makes it all that much more believable, because if you sound sloppy, no one wants to hear you. In this case, you’ll want to hear him, AND see him, which you can do by checking out the video for the song.
With the cowbells sourced from Kool & The Gang‘s “Jungle Jazz”, you can’t lose, and this song by Yinka Diz is a winner. It’s a nice hip-hop track with a respectable soul balance that doesn’t overwhelm or class, which in my book means, well, a winner. Listen and enjoy.
Yinka Diz has released a album he’s making available for free, called New Art, New Money, and you can find it at YinkaDiz.com.
