The MTV Video Music Awards are to take place this Sunday in L.A. Here’s a list of current nominees for a Best Hip Hop Video:
1. B.o.B. ft. Hayley Williams – Airplanes

2. Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Eminem – Forever
3. Eminem – Not Afraid
4. Jay-Z and Swizz Beatz – On to the Next One

5. Kid Cudi ft. MGMT and Ratatat – Pursuit of Happiness

Though “Forever” has a star studded cast and will probably take the astronaut trophy home, my personal vote is for Jay-Z and Swizz Beatz “On To The Next One.” The black and white cinematography is super stylish, looks like a Ray-Ban commercial, and is thoroughly littered with Swizz Beatz’ beats and Jay Z’s thick and chunky lines. Too bad the edited version is barely understandable.
