    20. Clipping. - "Work Work"

    Director:: Carlos Lopez Estrada

    Clipping. just love to toy with people's expectations of hip-hop. Set to their unique take on west-coast rap, the video for "Work Work" thankfully avoids two of hip-hop's worst music video stereotypes: the objectification of women and the endorsement of violence. In the video, Cocc Pistol Cree is in charge, pinning Daveed Diggs' jaw to the curb, before shattering his hollow skull in decidedly non-gory fashion. There are a lot messages that can be decoded from the video's subtler touches, but unraveling them is what makes it worth repeat viewings.—Joe Price
