Here is the link to J. Cole’s Who Dat music video:
Overall, I like the Who Dat music video because I like the song. I also think the producer of the video did a few things I haven’t seen in a music video before. I liked seeing J. Cole on the TV rather than following him around the streets of Fayetteville, North Carolina the whole time. I also was fond of J. Cole being on the stage as if he was performing. I also enjoyed the kids following him around the town; it was as if he was the pied piper of hip-hop. All in all the video could’ve been much better. However, I did like it as a video of an artist in their essence. This music video was directed by BBGUN.
- He uses regular people as opposed to other famous people, and he even corporate a marching band.
- J. Cole recorded the video in his hometown.
- Pyrotechnics go off when he walks by at the end of the video, which are symbolic of his line “B!&*# I got that flame.”
- The steady cam was too close to J. Cole at the beginning of the music video.
- The music video seems low budget, and no matter how much money is put into a project it shouldn’t look as if hardly any money was put into the project.
- His repetitive hand movements were distracting me, and they were a little annoying to say the least.
