Top 5 Movie-Inspired Music Videos – Better Than the Original?

Nas “Street Dreams”

Casino is a great film. It’s one of those movies you can watch a million times and still feel like you need to see it again. For Nas’ “Street Dreams,” he chose to go with a video inspired by the film and it’s definitely one of his more memorable clips, if for nothing, more the pastel suit selection. Besides, what’s fucking with Hype Williams in his prime?

Cool Breeze “Watch For the Hook”

I don’t think I remember the movie Reservoir Dogs. I know that I saw it, but you know a lot of the memories from my weed smoking days are fleeting. Regardless, I know that this video is a remake of that movie, and this song is also one of the greatest posse cuts ever in life. Is it blasphemous to say that catalog for catalog the Dungeon Family can give Wu-Tang a run for its money? Probably, but I just did. By the way, what the hell is Khujo saying in his verse? Can any of you translate or recite it word for word? I’m serious.

Redman “Whateva Man”

If anybody could pull off a Blues Brother’s themed video it’s the Black Cheech ‘n Chong. This is another one of those movies that I’m certain I saw but don’t quite remember, but this remake is adequate. Whatever, man.
