When I was asked to review a ‘music video’, I have to admit that I was a bit apprehensive. After all, I’m really a movie guy and, while I like music, someone once told me that everyone’s a music Nazi, I might like my music but I want to eliminate yours from the world. So, when director Gian Franco Morini sent along his video (for lack of a better word) for Culture Prophet’s song, Hustler, I figured that it couldn’t hurt to take a look.
While the song itself is good, and I say that being no music expert, the video really stands out. The look is really amazing, from the desert scenes to the strip in Las Vegas, Morini really gives each different setting it’s own individual look. The song is catchy and will probably be pretty popular in the club scene, but this video really deserves to be seen, Morini is an amazing cinematographer and I can’t wait to see more from him!
While it isn’t really in my normal pervue, I’m giving Culture Prophet’s Hustler, 3 out of 4 cigars, and it only lost one because it’s really not my style of music…and it’s pretty hard to separate these things when doing a review.
