Black & White/Jay-z + Cut Killer

I’m a great fan of black and white photography, movies, videos…I love black and white silent movies. And one of my favourite combinations is black and white & hip hop. Here’s La Haine‘s scene with DJ Cut Killer, a great movie and a great DJ mixing Krs-One and Nina Simone…back in 1995, in le banlieu of Paris.

…and then the new Jay-Z video, strictly black and white, and with tons of quotes. The song doesn’t have the best lyrics (not a surprise!), but the video has a quite mesmerizing aesthetics. And quotes from the contemporary art?
