23. Nas "One Mic" (2002)

Director: Chris Robinson
Album: Stillmatic

In this clip, Nas is a rebel leader-when he's not sitting in a room rapping deep thoughts to himself. Honestly, the juxtaposition is what makes this clip, just like it does for the song. You have the contrast of loud, brash rhymes from Nasty, set right against quiet, introspective ones. The visual does an excellent job shifting between those perspectives, from Nas, literally wth one mic, to him on the streets rallying the people. Well done.
