It’s a snow day in NYC! The weather outside is frightful and there’s hardly anything delightful about trying to commute in this mess. With that said, I’m posted up at the crib thinking of ways to keep myself amused while this winter blitz runs through my city.
With the hot cocoa on steam and Young Jeezy the Snowman on blast, I decided to do a blog post dedicated to the white fluffy stuff. A snow day playlist, if you will. I put on my thinking cap to come up with a list of hip-hop videos featuring the element of snow.
You know most rap videos that are shot outdoors go for with a summery feel to take advantage of the warmer weather, showcasing the scantily clad females and shiny new rides. I guess you need that hot look for a hot song.
Still, there a couple clips focused on that fresh powder and what better day than today to reflect on ’em. Here are a few of my favorite snow-filled rap videos. —Rondell Conway
Naughty By Nature “Feel Me Flow”
This video was the perfect imagery for Naughty’s career, as it went from hot to cold.
Young Gunz feat. Rell “No Better Love”
If I could be snowed in with Reagan Preston-Gomez I’d pray for a blizzard everyday.
Wu-Tang Clan “C.R.E.A.M”
Not everyone has the option of staying in when bad weather hits town. You gotta get out in that snow and make that C.R.E.A.M.
Common “The Corner”
Rashid proves he knows his way around them cold Chi-town corners, with Kanye West calling the shots as director.
It doesn’t matter the weather when dealing with a crazed fan.
Nas “It Ain’t Hard To Tell”
Classic New York army jacket and Timbs cut from God’s Son. Nuff said.
Alicia Keys “I Ain’t Got You”
I know this doesn’t count as a rap video, but Method Man is in. Plus, I needed a reason to watch Alicia in those heels.
