With his new album, Oxymoron due out on February 25, Schoolboy Q recently released his video for the song “Man of the Year.” For fans of Hip Hop videos, it gives you exactly what you’d expect from one of Hip Hop’s rising stars.
Directed by Dave Free and APLUSFILMZ, the video for “Man of the Year” follows the classic Hip Hop video formula of showcasing a life of excess and leisure. The video stars Schoolboy Q, as he spends his day in a tropical locale surrounded by beautiful women. Throughout the video, Schoolboy Q relaxes while he’s doing his thing, as the women around him have a great time dancing. As the sun goes down, the video concludes with a nighttime party on the beach complete with a bonfire, fireworks, and of course, more beautiful women dancing.
With his album forthcoming, some would consider sticking to a tried and true video formula as a smart move. Would you agree, or do you think this is a bit overdone? Let us know in the comments below.
