Videos of the Week November 11th

Let's call this the OG edition of videos of the week. Led by what can only be described as a must-see interview between Kendrick Lamar and Rick Rubin that merges generations of Hip Hop, there is more than enough content to get your eyes glued to the screen for minutes on end. Thanks to GQ, they talked shop casually for all of us to watch for a full 50 minutes. If you're curious about the inner workings of what makes Kendrick tick, you'll enjoy it. Then, there was that time Grandmaster Flash took us all back to school to on Hip Hop and what it takes to be a Hip Hop DJ. He even took to the white board to explain the intricacies of the physics behind scratching a record and the shapes of needles and wafers for turntables. Another full 57 minute watch chalked full of Hip Hop history.

If getting schooled on Hip Hop isn't as interesting to you, then you might enjoy the lengths that The Chainsmokers went to create their new lyric video for Setting Fires. There were stunt doubles and lots of cardboard signs, which made it a fun watch. If talent is what you want, then you need to get to know Lido. He's a jack of all trades and he shows you exactly why by putting on an instrumental show for his Dye video. And last but not least, we've got some Jimmy Fallon roasting by the Seattle Seahawks. Evidently Marshon Lynch was licking his chops to get back at him and he delivered a pointed message at the end of the video. Always entertaining to see some back and forth to remind us all that the famous people who are frequently the butt of jokes are capable of dishing it out too...#ThankYouNotes
