Bronx emcee Hop Da Great decided to share another video with the site. This one is for his single, “Lost Souls.” The record serves as a preview of what people can expect from Hop’s upcoming project, Preconceived Notions: The Unusual Gift – Strickly 4 The Fans Series (Part 1). Plus, Hop wanted to put out something that allowed him to speak on the struggles of living in today’s world especially when feeling off-course. Take a look at the visuals after the break.
The video was put together by L.E.S Davis. The flick starts off with a quick shot of some dope artwork, followed by a few opening credits, as a clip from the movie In Too Deep plays from the track. From there the song kicks into full swing and Hop is shown doing his thing in a dark setting amidst the artwork shown in the beginning. While he raps, there are a myriad of special effects going on around him. There are lyrical graphics displayed throughout, the lighting is played with a bit, and there are a few motion tricks; just to name a few. In addition to the artistic scene, Hop is also displayed hanging out in his car and in front of a graffiti covered wall. He takes on a cool laid back demeanor as he spits raw street savvy rhymes backed by a high grade slow-tempo beat. The video finishes with some advertising for Hop’s upcoming mixtape. Overall, this was a worthwhile effort.
**My Two Cents: This was an enjoyable number. The track is a hit. The video was pretty short but it was well packaged and it did the song justice. “Lost Souls” for sure sets a positive precedent for the upcoming tape.
