Hip Hop Savd My Life to be Lupe's Third Video for "The Cool"

Lupe Fiasco's third video "Hip Hop Saved My Life" is due out tomorrow on iTunes according to wikipedia. "Like "Dumb It Down", a low budget video directed by Dr. Teeth was filmed for it. The video includes Nikki Jean and Bun B with Lupe Fiasco."

I'm not sure how I feel about this. I'm glad there is a new video out due for Lupe but I'm not sure about the song itself as a music video. I can easily see it being a music video because it does tell a distinct story but I think there were other songs that could have been taken into account. I would really like to see "Little Weapon" or "The Die" or "Put You On Game" or "Paris, Tokyo" as music videos. All would probably have to be high-budget but I think they were make for more interesting music videos. I can already see what "Hip Hop Saved My Life" would be like in my head. But if he did something like "Little Weapon" that would be extremely, I think, worthwhile and deep. Just think about the imagery of that song, having little children shooting up helpless villagers and turning the tables with showing a regular American kid playing Gears of War or something.

What I am excited for is that it will be directed by the same guy who did "Dumb it Down" which I enjoy and it will feature Nikki Jean whom I also like. In any case, I guess we'll all see how it turns out tomorrow. (Pictures Below)

Nikki Jean smokes?
