Great shots. I think the wrong lens flare effects was used. The rest of the look is kinda classic, the anamorphic style lens flares just makes me think Star Trek and it clashes for me. Some cool old fashioned lens burn\flare would work better..

Its true, lens flares are overused in many films and music videos... I actually debated using them before making the video and decided to try them out because it was my first time using them. I'll try that lens burn next time man
I think this looks lovely, shot great, chopped great, colors great, great job!!! I think the lens flare works, they're been using it allot in ground breaking music with the next generations composers such as this one, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymKLymvwD2U
...serious about the flare, not so serious about the composers comment!
Great shots, and well edited-has a real professional look to it.
I will grant Rap is not my area of expertise, but the timing and actual editing of the video is really well done-very crisp.
This is one of those videos where I won't get on not using a tripod in certain shots, because of the nature of the music video, the "loose' feeling works well I think, and I don't find it distracting, works well!
