[Random Linkage] Abstract Beauty in Hip-Hop

This entry is part of 6 in the series Random Linkage

This is definitely one of those songs where the video does the heavy lifting. If I do end up listening to it on the reg, it’ll definitely be because the audio reminds me of the mood and visuals of the video.

Hip-hop videos, Japanese ones included, tend to feature, shall we say, women of a more earthy, dancehallian, biological beauty. And that’s fine. In fact, it can be a lot of fun — rubenesque rapper Maria’s playful references to her body and 100-cm waist in the remix of the Jazee Minor song “100” were thoroughly enjoyable.

But the subdued, abstract, ethereal and — to be blunt — somewhat neotenous beauty on display in this video is a welcome change of pace.
