Music Videos shot in the Area#10

November 25, 2008


 Here’s another video capturing the beauty of this neighborhood. This is by Brooklyn native Masta Ace the legendary MC from the golden era of hip hop and falls right into a recurring theme on this blog…it’s called “Nostalgia”.  It’s boggling to me that of all the articles that speaks of the “discovery” of Clinton Hill/Fort Greene and it’s scenic beauty of brownstone lined blocks, none of them mention how many musical artists have shot videos in the area over the years for that very reason…particularly Hip Hop and R&B artists.

 Oh well, those of us that were here know, hopefully in the future these articles can talk to a broader spectrum of people to get a better viewpoint about the area other than the usual, Myrtle ave. was “Murder ave.”, blah, blah then things changed…For the record, I’ve heard the term “Murder ave” used more in the last five years in articles, forums and blogs then my previous twentysome odd years in the neighborhood…Go figure…
