Local Video Blowout! Jimbo and Drake

Posted By on Tue, Nov 12, 2013 at 9:17 AM

It's like an Antenna club music video night up in this town. New music videos are everywhere.

Drake shot his "Worst Behavior" video in Memphis partly at Royal Studios. The video is shot in parts. The first is a session at Royal Studios, where Drake's Memphian father, Dennis Graham sings an R&B/blues number before the camera cuts to Drake. A second interlude with a wanna-be rapper played by OB O'Brien cuts to the quick of why I struggle to write about hip-hop. It's hilarious and sad at the same time. Juicy J and Project Pat are hilarious. Lots of Memphis cameos.

Also on the video vanguard is Mississippian by way of Chapel Hill Jimbo Mathus. His outlaw-on-the-run concept for "Tennessee Walker Mare" includes animated sequences and some hanging out on the bridge over the Little Tallahatchie on Highway 7 between Holly Springs and Oxford. Mathus' next album Dark Night of the Soul is due out in February.
